For wearability like you mentioned, the Alpinestars brace is far and away the best.

Since there is no testing or safety standards for these neck braces its kind of funny that their selling point has come down to comfort.

I have had my Leatt for 5 years now and upgraded recently because when you look around they are the only company who post there test results and have nothing to hide. Check out there testing at :

Wearability/fit/comfort is a highly individualistic thing with neck braces. Everyone's bodies are different, so your best bet is to either find friends or local bike shops who have braces you can try on. Fortunately there have been a number of new entries into the market segment over the past year or so so there are a lot of options out there. Leatt is still perceived by most to be the market leader, and depending on the metric you choose, that is probably not inaccurate.
