Was bought for my father in law. He’s a big trail rider. He loves it and has zero issues or complaints with it!
I purchased this chest protector after reading the reviews and knowing that Leatt is a quality brand. The protector arrived on time, and was packaged appropriately. After making a few simple adjustments the protector fit perfectly, and more importantly made me feel a lot more confident riding the trails and pushing my limits. I took the shoulder protectors off since I'm wearing under my winter riding jacket. In the Spring I plan on putting them back on and wearing it over my jersey. I would highly recommend this chest protector for its quality, fitment and protection.
i bought fox then thor returned both. the leatt cost more but has better fit. more protection also.
I just purchased this for a 100 mile desert race. I race the pro class and have reasonable experience with good protective gear. I really like this one because the shoulder guards are easily adjusted to fit anyone’s shoulder width. I use a KTM neck brace which works just fine with the design. I don’t know what the review was all about with the guy saying that the rib guards come out like wings because I tightened the straps to comfortability and I never even thought about the protector while racing let alone the ribs guards coming out. Mabye if you are like super fat and like 250 pounds not allowing the guards to reach to the front of the protector but even then, I doubt it. This is a solid purchase and the rib protection is great along with the normal features. Works well with a camelback. And my top speed was around 83mph. No problems with the rib guards coming out. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who is serious about not getting injured. Good all around protection with great neck brace compatibility features. 5’9” and 170 pounds and the standard fits me perfectly.
I have used other protectors in the past, but once I started wearing the Leatt Neck brace they didn't fit as well. I chose the Leatt and the fit and ease of putting it on with the brace is top notch. Great side protection as well. I live in the desert with a lot of rocks, so the extra protection is great to have. I recommend this protector if you are wearing a Neck brace as it allows the freedom of movement to to fully turn your head freely.
Best chest protector i have used.
Very comfortable shoulder pads are some of the better ones i have used.
I have put about 500 miles on tight single track with this chest protector and it has saved my ribs and shoulder on a few occasions.
Holds up well.you want be disappointed with this purchase.
I was looking to up grade my chest protector. I have been wearing a Airframe for the last 15 years and wanted some added protection. I noticed the weight of the protector right away, when I took it out of the package. The weight is not noticeable once you start riding and it is very comfortable. I did not have problems with the side panels sticking out and works great with my Leatt neck brace. I haven't taken a soil sample yet, but looks and feels like you are well protected. I would highly recommend this product to anyone who wants some added protection and the quality is top notch.
Don't buy this product.
Very heavy compared to other options, and there are two "flaps" on your mid section that are supposed to protect your sides. After a few minutes of riding the flaps come out from under the straps and literally look like wings on your sides. Totally useless. I'm going to return the product and get something better. Don't buy it.
