Help me choose a back + chest protector

Hi guys, ever since I got my suit, I really want to buy a decent back + chest protection vest. I've been doing some research and can't decide which would be the best. I would like one with a full length back protector. Here is what I've seen till now.

alpinestars-track-protection-vest

alpinestars-bionic-sp-vest

evs-comp-vest

knox-track-vest.html

I'm on a tight budget, so anything that crosses 200$ is immediately off the list...

I vote for the Alpinestars Bionic SP Vest; it seems to protect kidneys and lungs better.

Consider that any of these will make your current jacket harder to wear, size-wise.

The KNOX comes with chest padding. Think about upgrading to CE armor in the chest.

Personal preference: Knox > Forcefield > A*

Does this seem too good to be true? It has removable shoulder and elbow armor, so I could always take it off when I wear my suit... I would personally rather have a knox as well, only because it is only the only one that provides a full sized back protector... Only if It were cheaper

I vote for the A* SP vest. A lot of my riding buddies rock it and love the ventilation and protection of it.
