Any Experience with "No Bull" Riding Armor?

I am looking for something that protects the whole torso area not just the front and back. Thanks, Paul

How well does it protect the sides directly underneath your arms? Is there any padding in that area?
Paul, yes there is padding that extends from under the chest area to about oh....inch to inch 1/2 back where there is a "break" and only the foundation lycra and then all the back padding starts. If you look at the photos on my original write up you can see it there kind of sort of!
Its not like a football QB wrap...and not a hard padding, but it is padded under the arms.
If you want I can take a digital photo of the underarm area and and post

HR, after riding with you I felt naked with no pads at all, so next ride out I wore my Thor knee/shin guards and some cheapie elbow pads. Never been so hot in my life! I don't know how you aren't dying in that flak jacket of yours!
The rockgardn is pricey...but you get what you pay for...its not hot at all, vents incredibly well.....in fact when we were blastin on the fireroads, it was almost cold...no joke....so no I wasnt hot at all. The base material is wierd but in terms of venting and wind etc...its not there...very kewl...
But You dont crash like me....
Its really ugly...
