Shoulder guards fall off easy because its a wimpy plastic sleeve screw thats fused to the plastic pad itself. Screw is long and any amout of leverage or crash to it will snap. Mine broke by grabing it. So, if you like this one then do like i do and overcome the rookie engineering and drill it out and put a screw and nut to hold it on, peen it to stay on or lock tite it.

Overall a good chest protector. Does everything it needs to do.
Unfortunately it is not at all compatible with the Adult ATLAS neck brace.
Great protection and vest is adjustable. No rough edges. Very light and not near as bulky as the hard plastic ones. Great price from motosport.
It's always a problem with me, I have somewhat broad shoulders and a 31 size waist. Got this in size large and had to go nuts with the adjustment strap -- way beyond what it was designed for. Now the bottom clinches as tight as it can go and the fit is good.
The biceps pieces are removable but if you try, the screw that holds them can't be re-used without sticking out and possibly producing some discomfort (I haven't tried).. I used a couple different screws that were laying around that fit flush and had no issues otherwise.
Took a fairly big stick to the chest the first time out I was using it, was quite happy I had it on.
It's comfortable. I forget I'm having it on right away.
I wear it with a hydration pack and have no issues with it all fitting together.
Haven't tested it in the summer heat yet (2017 model), venting is there but not that generous. Still likely better compared to a full compression suit which is why I got this vs. the compression suit to begin with.
Bought this because I bruised my ribs and wanted more added protection and it seemed like it give you protection in the video , everything was pretty much on cue I'm very satisfied, only thing is one of the shoulder guards broke going to drill it out and fix it
Good coverage and removable back plate interior pad helps save weight fi you'd like. Doesn't feel bad when on just have to get used to being fully "wrapped".. Good coverage of your chest, ribs and back if that's what you want, I wear it under my jersey.
The first time I wore this, I had a small get off that resulted in right shoulder tearing off. I found all the parts and was able to reattach the shoulder guard. However, I do not believe this repair will last. I really like this protector and it is very comfortable. For what this cost, it should not be designed flawed and I can't recommend this product.
I bought this for my son, who races BMX after his friend took a handle bar in the rib area and ruptured his spleen. It is fairly light weight. And has excellent flank protection. It is stylish as well. He wears it under his jersey with no problem. He is 12 and 5' about 117 lbs we got him the small/Med and after tweaking it in (very adjustable) he loves it. Only problem I see is the shoulder cups only connect with one screw and it allows the cup to move all the way around and I am afraid it is going to break the plastic Hole where the screw goes in. Other wise super product.
Great product. Works well with a neckbrace, light and very adjustable. Can barely even tell I am wearing it and it's protective
Comfortable. Easy to adjust to fit. Would follow 450's all day long...Great side protection to.
This is really the only chest protector I have found that wraps your whole upper body in a protective cocoon of hard plastic...including your rib cage which is why I bought it vs. the others. Little awkward getting on but if you rest it on your head and slide your arms into the protective covers, that helps.
In addition to the back guard, the chest piece is also CE certified. My particular guard came with a loose screw on the shoulder to chest connection, and a forgotten stitch on one of the upper arm guard. Other than that, it's a very good product and design. Stiffer and heavier than I expected, but that's why it's CE certificated.
