Hi there

I am just trying to decide what body protection to buy for BP days. I want to use it under the dress, so I don't want anything bulky.
It's basically only Leatt protection, maybe Alpinestar. Let's just put aside that these equipment is expensive af..
But anyway. I am deciding between:

Body Protector 3DF AirFit - complex body armour, Level 2 back and chest, shoulders, elbows. Expensive
https://leatt.com/int/shop/moto/protection/body-armour/body-protector-3df-airfit-sku-5018101211-W?selected-color=5440

Or
Body Tee 3DF AirFit Lite - level 1 back, chest shoulder and wear extra elbow pads
http://leatt.com/int/shop/moto/protection/body-armour/body-tee-3df-airfit-lite-sku-5017180020-W?selected-color=5440

Or just only
Body Vest 3DF AirFit - level 2 back and chest, without shoulders, with extra elbow pads
http://leatt.com/int/shop/moto/protection/body-armour/body-vest-3df-airfit-sku-5018200100-W?selected-color=5440

Reason why I am considering options is that if I buy the whole jacket with everything, something can move differently, pads will not hold on position and I will be pissed.
Also I don't know if I need shoulder pads with this style of protection. Ok, if I have a crash, a shoulder can get pretty hard time. But broken bones on this place is more because of compression. I don't count bruises and scratches. It will happen anyway.
That vest is probably the most lightest protection but also less protective for shoulders.

Does anyone here have experience and advice what would be optimal? I am also open to different options (available in Europe)

Thanks!
