How do you wear your gear?

I just bought the Fox titan armor and was thinking of layering like this: wicking t-shirt, armor, jersey, roost guard.
Is the outside roost guard overkill? The armor offers pretty good chest protection but the zipper down the middle is unprotected. There's lots of small rocks in the area that can make for some super nasty roost.

You'll find that wearing a roost guard on top will just slow you down IMO.
I wear nothing under my thor armor, never had any chafing, rubbing or rash issues with the fabric, and trust me it's hot enough just by itself. I put a jersey on to protect the armor from clinging mud. I wear thor force knee braces in which they really irritate the skin behind my knee, so I put on thin cotton stretchable knee supports first.

wait... The roost guard doesnt go over your jersey?
I know a lot of people that wear their RG's under the jersey, mine is made to do that, but if you buy your jersey big enough then you also can do the same. My kids all wear their RG's on the outside of their jerseys, just preference
