Neck Braces at the track?

Just wondering if any of you guys wear a neck brace at the track, and if so do you recommend one in particular?

I just got into doing track days and dropped a pretty hefty chunk of change on my suit and other gear, but I haven't gotten a neck brace yet. Was wondering if it's something I should definitely invest in down the road or not. Not sure if I've ever noticed the Moto GP guys wearing them but I may have just not noticed it either.

Air vest. The brace doesn't protect your ribs or your Clavicle and Acromion.

I've been looking into the hitair vests, but I'm confused on sizing. Should chest measurements be taken with the suit on, or suit off? I fall into the XL size range with no suit, but they only sell two sizes - Medium (which covers S to XL) and Large (covers XL to 3XL). I've tried to ask distributors, but haven't gotten any replies.

Re: Neck Braces at the track?

Yep. Suit on. You will want a Large. That is pretty much what everyone wears (except for some women).

Edit- I just looked at mine. It says "US/EU XL-2XL" but it is the RS-1 model
