    I was considering to change my back protector into a rib protector.

    I've seen that most people bought a Ribtec and are happy with it.

    I found another option on the internet: http://www.valhallaracing.com/ArmadilloVest.cfm

    Has anyone tried this one? It it good as well? Which one would you recommend?

    My only concern about rib vest, is that they may be limiting movements. Is that true?

    Thank you for your suggestions!

    that one seems a lot more bulky than the Ribtect. It is about half price though. I like the Ribtect. Doesn't hold water and is fairly thin. I have took some nasty crashes with it and have had no injuries...

    read through this thread too - http://www.foilforum.com/forums/show...hlight=ribtect

    Will these vest help prevent getting the wind knocked out. I got the wind knocked out of me so bad once that I passed out and woke up in the water, not a good feeling. I all ways wanted to know if these would prevent that. Thanks for any input.
