Being an older rider and landing on my shoulder after the last ride, I decided that I needed some protection for my upper body. I purchased the XL Titan Sports Jacket, I'm 6'0' about 195 and the jacket fit snug but not uncomfortable at all. I was able to fit my XL jersey right over the top without any issues. As for protection, I took a pretty good crash and went over the bars.. The vest took the impact on my same should from the week before and I felt fine... Now all I need is to find some protection for my dislocated thumb and pointer finger and I'll be all set.
I've had the jacket a few weeks now and am still very happy with it. The construction is solid and I feel very protected. I've crashed on a couple trails and didn't get hurt nor has the armor shown much wear.
Its a really good fit, I'm 6"1 and L just fits perfectly. Movement isn't restricted at all and it is actually very comfortable.
My only issues are:
- Back is only CE 1621-2 level 1 certified, so no proper protection on roads, and most tracks require level 2. I would have loved to see it being a do-it-all Jacket.
Elbow Protectors are very loose fit, they tend to move around since theres no straps to hold or adjust it. Haven't taken a fall yet, but I imagine the elbow guard to just slide around my lower arm leaving the skin exposed. This is a serious design flaw which could easily be fixed by a strap. So beware!
But other than that I think it's very good value for money. If you want better protection you usually pay double the price.
I personally dislike bikes with a passion burning within my soul comparable to the fire of a thousand suns, BUT my boyfriend rides and is incredibly spoiled, so he got this as a gift. No complaints from him thus far & it seems to be a great, protective product. Would definitely recommend to others! :)
I've had a few drops off my xr400 since acquiring and its held up well - me too for that matter, exactly why I purchased the jacket. For the price its a great value compared to some of the other jackets I looked at. I'm 6', 190 medium build, the XL fit w/o any complaints. It took a ride or two to get used to it on, but after that, feels fine.
Fits well and is comfortable to wear on long rides. My only complaint is that it is very hot under the chest and spine protector in the summer, but it's a fair trade off for the protection. Overall I'm very satisfied with this product!
I ride forest trails and logging roads, often way out in the mountains, and need to feel safe in case I take a fall. This armor has already proven itself several times in crashes where I could have been really hurt. An added benefit that I did not foresee is the protection from branches that I have hit going down the trail. It can get really hot here in the Sierra Nevada mountains in the summer and this armor is very cool, with excellent ventilation. I wear it under a jersey or without a jersey, but always with an Under Armour shirt and it is extremely comfortable. I am 5' 5" and 175lbs with a 45" chest and the Large fits very well.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who values their safety off road.
Fits well. feel good. works better
