Fox Roost 2 Armour

Just wondering if people still use these or if the under clothing type suit has completely taken over. I have both and while the Fox is great, not sure if I'd stand out like a sore thumb with it these days.

First off, if it works for you, it doesn't matter what it may or may not look like to others.

I still wear my MX chest protector occasionally - - especially if it's hot out and I want something super-lightweight or if I want to use it as a chest-mount for my GoPro. My biggest reservation about it is the lack of full-length spine protection like my Pressure Suits have. If it had that, I might wear one instead of a body suit all the time - - over or under a jersey. It's light, compatible with my Leatt and comfortable.

The only roost protector I am aware of that is the full package (built-in spine armor AND Leatt-compatible) is the Alpinestars A-8. Alas, they are not a sponsor so have not had the opportunity to try one.
