I ride for Helium. The swat vest is a nice and floaty vest. I rode it for a season. To be 100% honest with you, I really am not a fan of the built in back brace. It has a tendancy to move around and roll over when you crash. But all in all it is a solid vest.

Its not really uncomfortable. It just rides up when you crash hard on your back. I really dig the Balance Series and the Division Series, the Rove Series is Cool But I am not that into the graphics on them.

The Swat Jacket and the Flak Jacket both have build in Back Braces. Although we may have dropped the back brace from the 09 swat series I just shop them an email to make sure.

Yeah no Lumbar support on the Swat. Only on the Flak.

Any experience with the SWAT CGA? The Celtic version?
