just got new armor

has anyone tried the 661 sp2 body armor? i just bought it for $80 but ive only took it for a short ride. so far its pretty comfy, as i only wore a sweater over it. i have an astars jacket, but wanted a back protector, so got this armor instead. i figured it was cheaper than your average $125-150 back protector, but included shoulder/elbow protection and chest padding as well.

no, it was a blowout sale and thats all they had, hence the blue color that doesnt match my bike! but thats why i got it w/ a discount.
but its cool, cuz its nice to know that my back is now way more protected than before. the pants would be in the near future though.

p.s. i tried on the alpinestars' version, which is pretty much the same thing, but the price was well over $200
