Fox R3 Roost Deflector Unless your name happens to be Superman, getting pelted by rocks blasting off the rear-tire of the guy in front of you really doesn't feel all that great. If you find yourself in this situation often, or if you just value a little thing called "safety" then perhaps it's time to invest in a chest protector.

Fox's Chrome Red R3 Roost Deflector is the company's entry-level body shield. The polycarbonate construction offers up protection for your chest, back and shoulders. The shoulder cups are designed to be low-profile rather than sporting that NFL linebacker look and are actually adjustable which is handy for different body types. You can also remove the arm pads without cutting anything and the color scheme is nice without being too flashy or gaudy.

Not a lot of pros wear Chest, or "Roost" protectors these days but ask anyone who does and they will tell you it's a good investment and will likely have more than one story about how they avoided a nice golf ball sized bruise from a flying rock or a nasty welt from a tree branch while tearing through the woods.

Keep in mind that chest protectors aren't meant to prevent serious injury if you really pummel yourself into the ol' terra firma but having a little extra armor certainly isn't a bad thing.

Need some extra windshield protection as well?
