    I always wear a chest protector over my shirt but in the winder i mostly wear a press suit(under), because it keeps me warm.

    The over-the-shirt ones seem more solid.. I've never really worn either kind long enough to have a real preference since I just borrow my friends' stuff, though.

    But the one time I tried one of the under-shirt ones, it was definately not made for a girl... Not comfortable... lol

    i've been looking at the EVS and Alpinestar ballistics jerseys. They are both right around $200 and i think that the money is worth every dime of protection. The way i think of it is that if i go down on the track and it keeps me from getting bruised up and feeling better to race the next week then it was worth it.

    I also prefer over the jersey. They are more protective and don't cause you to sweat. Plus, that hard plastic breaks branches on the way by, the soft ones still get stabbed.

    I also use the Fox Airframe, but I use it under my jersey... Rode for about 6 hours the other day and forgot that I had it on...

    Over the shirt. If you don't have scratches and dings in it, you are NOT riding hard enough!

    I used a Thor chest protector until I crashed hard and hurt my shoulder, elbow, and hand. Now I wear a Thor RIG SE that goes under the shirt and has built in shoulder pads, elbow pads and the chest proctector. The thing is very comfortable and you would be shocked at how much air flows through it...I was surprised. But if you're looking for protection, this thing covers alot of your upper body and is no more uncomfortable than an external check protector in my opinion.
