Can the Forcefield Rib Protector be worn in reverse as a chest protector?
- Is the armor in this item the same as the Force Field chest protector?
- How much does it weigh?
- If worn in reverse, can it snap with the Elite, or only a back protector?
I have one and you can wear it either way. As a chest protector it gives better wrap around to your sides and rib cage. I have broken ribs twice by falling on my elbow, this way it will pad you from that. As a back protector it comes only part way around your ribs, leaving you exposed if you face plant. Worn by itself it obviously doesn't cover everything, but chest and back protectors don't ever protect your sides. It's a little stiff but still comfortable and lite, my Med weighs 2 lbs.
