Is it just me, or anyone else has an impression, that armors covered in 100% with fabric will easily, quickly be worn out on elbows and beck, due to lack of hard protectors?
Or maybe, these areas are reinforced with some tough materials, like kevlar, aramid?

have you tried the poc on already? i did and i found it quite heavy in comparision to the 1.0 one.

That looks like it has potential.

The 661 armor def works, I've had a few pretty hard crashes landing on my shoulder and sure I've gotten marks but nothing too bad.
I paid 15 bucks to a tailor and had a zipper put on. It was not originally implemented in this first generation to keep the cost down and weight. I have played around with different versions of zips to test, might see production soon. What riders like about our TLD is how customizable they are, you can remove, add to, tweak every pad around the entire garment.

I have last 2 that stik linked above. The sleeveless I use for Moto. Can't even tell its there. Very comfortable and protects from roost.

A zip would absolutely make the TLD the best armour I've used. And I still cant believe how well it actually protects - I'm sure that unless you plan on landing on something sharp and pointy then it is better at reducing injury than hard shell armour of years gone by.
When my son worked out that crashing hurts and t-shirts and neck braces still leaves lots of space for ouchy bits that get no sympathy I talked him into getting the same as me - https://www.troyleedesigns.com/products/5231-02
If the next generation is easier to get out of I will probably plump for the long sleeve.
Stik - could you post a pic of zip ideas? Or are we to wait for production versions? If you need input from a serial crasher..........
