You Ask/You Answer: What armour do I need?

General news

"I've been riding for 8 years, and all my kit has some form (or in some case, foam) of armour in the arms, legs, shoulders, back areas.

I find some of it uncomfortable, and am surprised that the one bit I'd really like – proper back protection – is just a bit of foam I wouldn't use as a kneeling pad. What do I really need, and what can I throw away?

Does any of it really make a difference if you fall off?"
