I like the under jersey chest protectors. They dont protect you as well but I like the feel of it. Its a Sixsixone

if your racing on really rocky terrain/tracks then go for a traditional over-the-jersey roost deflector. it gives you more protection than the cooler, sleeker under jersey ones. if its any other terrain though you'll be fine with an under jersey protector. personally, i use a fox airframe...but it retails for about $120. the best underprotector in my opinion is the thor quadrant.

My Rock Garden flak jacket (under the jersey protector) gives much more protection than the traditional roost protector.

I would just make sure that you got one that could withstand a shot to the chest by the handlebars......rocks might hurt, but handlebars can break ribs and breastbones. If it withstands the handlebar hits, you'll thank yourself at some point.....

This Flak jacket I bought is padded with hard plastic in the chest area just like the over the Jersey protectors but also has some additional added features. Most importantly, it fits like a glove and doesn't slide around even when properly secured. I like it!
