I bought this about 6 months ago and it came broken out of the box. One of the tabs to lock the strap in was broken. All the metal on it is very very very cheap Chinese metal. The screws holding the shoulder guards on are very difficult to tighten when they come loose because the screwdriver strips the top of them off with little effort because of the cheap metal used. I had to drill through it in both shoulder guards and put a screw and bolt on to keep the shoulder guards on. If I were you I would strongly recommend not buying this chest protector. Go for the Troy Lee Designs Shock Doctor one. Bottom line is the metal is just WAAYYY to soft. I don't understand why they would make this with such cheap metal. You WILL have the same problem with the soft metal.
