    I have an over the shirt Fox Airframe and love it. I ride in the bush and find the chest protector over the jersey protects me and my jersey from branches.

    Im a fan of the hard plastic chest protectors, vice the soft foam roost guards so I go with it outside the jersey. I dont think the plastic ones would be very comfortable under the jersey. I am currently running a fox airframe and it is great, very comfortable and once you are used to it you dont even know its there, until it helps you out in a crash or during a stone spray sandwhich!

    I wear a TLD with the shoulder caps removed under my jersey. It's a really nice protector over or under.

    I have both. Actually I sweat more with the under jersey roost guard. I wear a t-shirt underneath it. I recently started using my regular CP again.

    That's what I figured - I can't really see wearing a t-shirt, under jersey protector and long sleeve jersey when its 95 Degrees in July.

    I wear mine on the outside. My son wears a jersey with chest protector over it and a larger jersey over the chest protector. He don't like the way mud cakes up on the chest protector it shed's of the jersey pretty well.

    Get some UnderArmor heat gear and you will be set. It works much better than t-shirts and keeps the ronies from being rubbed raw...

    Dress it under the shirt made it less prone to snag in somethings in case of contact with other bikes/guys, so is less dangerous.
    In FMI (italian) rules is mandatory.

    Over the jersey full coverage hard impact "spreading" ( sorry can't think of the exact word for this at the moment) and padded plastic!
