I bought it because i wanted a good under jersey protector and realized this was not it. It is too think to be advertised as and under jersey product. it limits my upper body movement. and like the other reviews mentioned it has these sections that dig in to the outside of your chest. makes me way too stiff. i wish i could get my money back but i've used the product already. just dont buy it. too uncomfortable to ride with.

Where to begin. I just recieved the a6 in the mail and I could not be more disapointed. I liked it because it just had the velcro straps for more of a sleek style underneath the jersey, thats the only plus. Im 6 feet 170 lbs and with the straps completley tight I still have atleast a 3 inch gap around my stomach so it just hangs there and wont fit snug to my body. If you are a big guy whos stomach sticks out farther than your chest, then it MIGHT be better. Next, the area between the shoulders is to wide and if you put your arms straight in front of you the protector digs into the area between the pec and shoulder. Not only uncomfortable , but it hurts! I have not even bothered wasting my time to see what it looks like underneath the jersey because it is going straight back. (or the durability obviously). Oh, the only other plus is that is seems to be well ventilated. I hope this helped .
I just purchased this new a6 underprotector and had it shipped next day, as I had heard it was supposed to be great. Not so. The first thing I noticed when I took it out of the box was that the thing is made out of styrafoam! It has some sort of thin black plastic over the top to make it look shiny, but when you look closer it is junk. It seemed to fit ok until i put it on under my jersey! made me look like I was a 250 lb. hockey player. it also jabbed into my armpit right next to my pec, so I am sending it right back. I wouldn't recommend this to anyone.
