I love the vest. Very comfortable on sportbike. Only probably I had with the purchase is the manufacturer changed the back of the vest to all black. There is no indication on the website the color scheme had changed Therefore, I was disappointed that I didn't get what was expected. Now I look at it as I'm diff from the crowd

Seems to be well made, very adjustable. Probably not the most protection in the world. But something is ALWAYS better than nothing.
This is a lightweight vest designed primarily for spinal protection during a crash, and mild abrasion protection from the road surface. I wear it over a t-shirt, under my normal riding jacket. It fits well and does not interfere with the normal fit of the riding jacket. It's comfortable too....did not bother me at all and I forgot I was wearing it until the ride was over. I am 6'2" and about 195 lbs. and I got the smaller of the two sizes....there were only two sizes to choose from and the smallest one fits me fine. There is a ton of adjustment over the shoulders, and around the ribs. I also tried my Leatt brace with this vest, no problems there either. I would not recommend wearing this vest as your only source of protection, as it does nothing for your arms, and its not enough for abrasion resistance. It is meant for spinal protection and mild chest protection, and it does a great job for its intended purchase. I would buy it again for sure.
Most jackets you buy just come with a back pad, which won't offer much protection in a crash. This fits great under a jacket and is a great added layer of protection.
Vest fits nicely under my Icon Hooligan jacket. It's very comfortable, too. I think the chest plate should be armored, too though. Otherwise a great product.
I have had it for about a week now and actually want to wear it unlike my jacket. Its perfect for the weather down here. Teamed up with the elbow armour I feel well protected. Hopefully I never have to find out if it works...
We bought 2 for my girl and I and have been very pleased with them. They come on and off quickly and have plenty of ventilation to keep you from overheating. We did have to pin the shoulder straps up about an inch on my girls since she is small but it was no big deal. Well worth the money.
i love this thing fits very nice ! one of the best products on the market.very good for them hot days when you want to skip the jacket and not lose all the protection.fits under both of my jackets for extra protection no problem..i have leather and mesh.icon rules
Comfortable to wear, easy to hide. That's exactly what I was looking for. Not looking forward to see how well it protects, but I'm sure it will do the job!
This is a good product. I only wish I had purchased this a long time ago. This is good for light riding ,cruising and it looks good. I ride daily to and from work and it's ideal for me.
I am a college student. I spend most of my time just commuting to classes so even though I do go to the track as often as possible, most of the time I am a street bound warrior. About a quarter in to my first year I got tired of wearing my Riding Jacket just to go to class. In Louisiana where it is quite warm most of the time I really needed something lighter just to commute to class. I don't use this on the track as it is not CE approved. I bought this field vest and it fits perfectly and is quite comfortable for commuting around the city. I put it over my t-shirt and zip a hoodie around it and head to class. I will wear it under my jacket when going for a ride in the twisties, but for someone like me who spends a lot of time just commuting to class this thing is PERFECT. When I get off my bike now I don't have to take a big heavy Icon Jacket off because I'm sweating like crazy. In fact I usually wear this armor to class under my hoodie. Even if you do go to the track as often as you can like me, if you commute on your bike in a hot place where speeds usually don't go above 35 this is the perfect thing to have instead of a heavy jacket. So convenient.
great fit, cool design, good ventilation
Best protection out there for the money with a great fit.
I ordered a Large, I`m 6'2" 190lbs. It fits perfect. Very comfortable. Fits under all my riding jackets. A little lighter than I thought looking at the pictures. Very good back protection. Light chest protection. A little expensive for $100.00 but I`d say it`s worth the money in back protection. Very easy to put on and take off, Once you fit it to your self. I`m very happy with it!
This is the most comfortable back protector I have ever worn. Its thin enough to fit comfortably under my leathers, but still provides great back protection. The chest area is "OK" as far as protection. There is no hard armor on the chest but, you fall on your back 90% of the time anyways. Im 6'0" and about 180 lbs and the "Reg" fits perfect. The only downside to this protector is that it's not "CE" approved. Some officals at track days may not let you use it, but if you stay on the street this is the one for you.
For the price this can't be beat. It's very comfortable and breaths well. It'll keep you cool on hot days and is safer than nothing at all.
Only complaint is I wish it were a little more adjustable on the shoulders. Otherwise this is a great vest for street riding.
