I wanted something cool and lightweight for the summer. This fits the bill perfectly. Comfy also. You dont even know your wearing it. However, the shoulder pads are basically useless. I feel vulnerable in the shoulder area in a crash. Although twice the price, I will upgrade to the A10. I expected more from Astars

I wore this under a mesh jacket and still could feel air moving through, so it was comfortable in weather approaching 90 degrees, as long as I was moving. And it was light and unrestrictive, to the point that I forgot that it was there while I was riding.
One warning: The "posts" on the sides of the lower front, to which the buckles attach, are screwed on. I didn't realize that. So I never checked to be sure they were screwed on tightly, and one of them fell off when I took the roost guard off. Fortunately I noticed it in time to retrieve it from where it had fallen, but it could easily have been overlooked, and consequently lost.
I purchased this to wear under my jersey as I don’t like the bulky over the jersey chest protectors. It fits well and offers great protection considering its size and weight. If you’re looking for a super protective unit that covers a ton of area, this is not for you, but it works great for what it is intended for. I am 6’1” and 210 pounds and I went with the XL/XXL and am very happy with the fit.
It's lite, comfortable and protects as it's expected to do.
it adjusts to fit anyone very light you forget its on
