    Put deodorant on your nips, old running trick. Works great for me.

    This is more or less what I've settled on for now - knee guards & padded shorts for now as my legs are taking a serious beating. Then some armor and tougher boots in the spring when it starts to warm up.

    Can't imagine riding without upper body protection. I'd have busted an elbow or four by now.
    But then I crash a lot.

    I tend to start my day with a poly shirt as my base, armor jacket over that, and jersey on top of that. If hot I shed the jersey and with just the poly shirt and armor jacket I am fine as long as we are moving.

    Colder days I layer under and over.

    Unfortunately, anything tight enough to stay in place on your elbows in a crash is going to contribute to arm pump, IMO

    One more good experience with the leatt. Wore it all week at bootcamp. Crashed many times an i had the least roadrash of anyone. Just a tiny spot on my shoulder where the pad rubbed.
