this chest protector is very light weight and has thin padding which is great for trail riding but if you are looking for one that has padding this is not for you. when im riding i dont even realize that its o and the straps on the side for your arms is held on by a button so they are easily removed.

The sizing on the fox R3 roost deflector is off. This is the second one I ordered from different companies with the same result. It's says a men's small but it's actually a youth size. It's the same size as my daughters youth R3. I have a fox adult small myself and the one I received is a lot smaller. I think it's an issue at the Fox warehouse not with Motorsport.com. The awesome folks at Motorsport.com exchanged the R3 for an EVS revo 5. The staff is knowledgeable and courteous. Shipping was fast and Revo fits great.
Goes great with my new helmet and protects me and complements my new riding gear. "Let's Ride!"
The arm guards snap on to the main frame, but the snaps are very weak. I just left the arm guards off. Sizing may be a little off. I am 6' tall 175 pounds and bought the large. The side straps are adjusted all the way tight and it is still a bit loose if only wearing one layer. It would probably be just fine with a jacket worn under. It is comfortable, I don't even know it's there when riding. Good bang for the buck.
Runs a little small. I ordered the medium based on their size chart. It fits me on the upper end of sizing being a large would be too big on me. I crashed in it and my shoulder and back were spared injury.
I purchased a Large Mens for my 14 yr old son, who is less than 110#. It "just fits", so I would think it a couple months it will not. It is almost Identical size as the Youth model I purchased for him a couple years ago. Consequently I plan on returning it.
UpperBody protection and Roost shield is a must. Protect your Collar!
NEED TO GET. This is a very good product it is strong,light,comfortable and has a lot of adjustment.
I am 6' tall, 200+ lbs. fits like a champ!
Best chest protector I have used.
I really enjoy this roost protector. Great protection from roost and also pretty good protection for falls with the hard plastic and foam underneath.
I had a mishap at the dunes where I skipped off a set of whoops and into the face of a much larger dune on my raptor. my hand came off the grip and I was catapulted forward as the font end hammered into a dune and dug in the bumper. My chest hit the bars so hard on the brake lever that it pushed the bars forward in the clamps two inches and it broke the chest plate in a 8 inch crack all the way across the nipple line. It did break but the impact that it took would have put me in the ER !!! It knocked the wind out of me but I got back to riding with a few adjustments of the bars. Just like a helmet. It did its job and kept me safe!!!!! Thank you Fox..
As far as chest protectors go this is excellent. The price is great too. I did have part of my buckle break but I fall a lot because I am a hill climber. The plastic holds up and only gets minor scratches. It is obviously cool looking and the black doesn't make it hot. I put some monster stickers on it and they stuck very well. However, it is no body armor. Find the form fitting body armor and spend the extra money. I recommend Troy Lee. You get full back protection, kidney belt support, and elbow and forearm coverage. I gave this chest protector to a friend when I got the armor...he was stoked
Has great protection and adjusts to any body type
What can I say, it guarded me from roost. It did its job and looked good doing it
This is surprisingly comfortable and really light
holds up good but the foam padding tends to fall off. i have to keep taping it back on. other than that its great
This is a good quality product for the price. It seems well made and the ventilation is effective. The sizing chart is accurate for this item as well.
very good equipment, fits perfect, very good price
I bought this a little over a month ago and ended up sending it back because I did not like it. The fit was completely off and I felt like I did not have that much protection. Thats what I get for looking for the cheapest.
