However, after about two hours of adjusting and fitting, I can't get my Alpinestars brace positioned where I am 100% comfortable but be aware that I am very picky. The protector has front and rear insert slots for your brace. The manual shows that you can place your neck brace on top of these slots/inserts or into the slots/inserts.

The Alpinestars brace will fit on top on each slot/insert and it will fit into each slot/insert, except it will only go down about halfway into the rear slot/insert.

The slot/inserts each have a couple of screws but they are not removable because they are sewn together with the frame.

At this point, I like the chest protector and the great flank and arm protection so much that I think I will buy a Leatt 5.5 gpx or a 6.5 gpx neck brace.
Latest update. I rode this last weekend with the Leatt HD Pro 5.5 XL and my Alpinestars neck brace. It works! I did not have any problems at all and I never felt uncomfortable or even noticed any problems at all. The secret for me was to push the alpinestars rear part of the brace down into the rear slot of the Leatt protector before putting it on. It takes just a little pressure to get it into the rear slot, then you are good to go.

The Leatt is a nice rig, I feel much safer riding with it.
