Like most people in the Moto world I have broken a few bones and ligaments. The end of my clavicle pokes up from tearing my ligaments in my ac joint. Theres a screw/bolt that holds the shoulder/delt protection together and it sits right on the bone that sticks up. Makes a long day of riding hurt like a SOB. I’m not bashing the protector. It’s my bodies fault. The protector is otherwise comfy and has a sleek fit.

These wrap around the body and protect the rib cage.
By no means am I a pro rider, and a lot of times I get in over my head and loop out or go flying off the bike and glad i have had this cause it keeps my back from getting torn up and it doesnt break. Also the bicep protection saves me from the pain of my friend's back tires chucking rocks at me when im behind them.
Bought for my 12 yr old grandson, we live in Iowa, he’s only worn it twice so far. It broke at the shoulder twice I purchased additional hardware to repair but it just broke again and this was without an accident. Poor quality would never buy again
They’re sized a little big so go a size down from normal
The bane of moountain biking is crashing and cracking ribs which I've done three times. After the last crash, I said "never again". I bought a mountain biking chest and back protector, but it provided no protection on the side of the ribs which is where I've impacted every time my ribs have been cracked. So this motorcycle rib protection was just what I needed to protect my sides. I can't comment on performance or durability since I've not crashed with it on and I just bought it.
I purchased this protector because I had a fall at Taylor Park Co. broke some ribs from an elbow to the side. I went back to Silverton and rode the jeep trails 8 week later with the chest protector. I only had one minor fall but it did its job. I was comfortable and I had the range of motion needed to ride my DRZ. I am 56yrs old and it hurts more and takes longer to heal so this is a must for me. I live in Tx and it gets hot in the summer. it is a little bit warm during the summer months but the buckles on the straps allow it to be removed and put back on quickly. it has a lot of adjustment to conform to your body type.
So I bought this vest and the top left chest bolts came out is there
anyway, I can buy the bolts to fix the vest
Fit well, would recommend.
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.
