    Has anyone purchased the alpinestars A-8 protection vest?

    Apparently this is a vest that integrates directly with the Bionic Neck brace.

    I recently purchased this, thinking i would able to have the neck brace on and this chest protector, but it just sits too high up and i can barely look down with my helmet on.

    Anybody else having this problem???

    Thanks in advance! [​IMG]

    Have you adjusted the length on the rubber shoulder straps? They are held on by alu screws. Detach them and relocate them into holes farther up the strap. Side note: use a nickel and be careful; they are the worst hardware I have ever used, only slightly harder than dried clay. BP
