Back Protector Sliding Up
Back Protector : Forcefield Pro L2k "Large"
Suit : Alpinestars Atem One
Stats : 6'1 210lbs Athletic Build
I recently switched from a back protector insert to an individual strap on Forcefield back protector. The issue i'm having is the back protector keep sliding up on my back and actually starts to rub on the back of my lower neck when doing chicanes/direction changes. So far I have tried all configurations of tightening and loosening the straps and I have also had someone keep it pushed down while I put my suit on, but nothing has worked. My next step is to exchange it for a size smaller and after that switch to a vest style back protector.
Before I go through that headache, has anyone had this issue and is there an easy solution?
