Back protectors.

So I have a Jacket that has a CE cert'd back protector. Its an all foam one, probably level 1 I imagine. Is it worth it to go buy one of the more spendy ce-2 units out there? Will be running in a begginner group so its not a required item. This would be a no brainer if it was just a dual density foam pad, but not so much when I already have the level 1 protector covered.

Aside from that, whats good and cheap?

The foam one in your suit is junk. Replace it with any aftermarket back proector and you'll be ok. I have an Alpinestar back protector myself.

Well, it is substantially better than most of the ones you see in jackets. Like I said it is a CE rated one. I guess Ill look into a hard one though. Not like they are a ton of money.

It may be CE but it is junk.
I like Knox.

There is nothing firm, nothing balanced, nothing durable in all the universe. Nothing remains in its original state, each day, each hour, each moment, there is change. Change is the essence of life. Embrace change as you do life. To fight change is to live in the past.
