I was recently hooked up with a Fieldsheer Womens
Carbon Race jacket and I just wanted to let everyone know that I'm very impressed. It's got hard armor in the arms and shoulders, a foam back protector that can be swapped out for a hard one, and it's definitely cut for the female form.
My only complaint is that it's a size large (10-12) and like most companies they seem to think that with height comes girth. I definitely don't have a gut. But even then it fits me extremely well. Hopefully I never have to test it out, but I have every confidence it'll hold up great. I like this jacket enough to know that I'd buy one for full price in a heartbeat! (thanks to Robert for making this possible for me!)
for more women's gear if you're interested, they're one of the few companies that are making more than a few products for women.
