    Is the forcefield/joe rocket back protector acceptable to meet this requirement? This protector is CE level 2 certified, but I'm wondering about the language in the rulebook that states a 'hard-shell' protector is required.

    The only ones I've seen that are hard shell are the Alpinestars bionic. Any particular recommendations?

    Thanks

    yes that will work. Basically, the built-in ones in jackets and suits is not acceptable, but any add-in protector that is stand-alone will pass. CE level 2 is the best you can get, so that will certainly pass.
