Ordered it Quality is second to none. Fit was a challenge. 6 ft 215, 46" coat and just could not get it to fit. Spent 2 hours trying to get adjusted and it just is too small and the shoulders are not in the right place despite all the adjustments. If you are a bit smaller this might be perfect for you.

this protector was comfortable the first time i took it out.....no break in or discomfort. thanks leatt
I wore my son's Leatt 4.5 for a couple of rides and really liked it. It is an XXL and fit me very well. I am 6 feet tall and 220lbs. I wanted shoulder and bicep protection and that option only comes in the 5.5. I ordered the 5.5 and it just did not feel the same. I know it was brand new but it did not fit me like the 4.5 and I really did not feel like it eventually would. So I called up Motosport and exchanged it for the 4.5. Customer support was excellent. Got the 4.5. No arm protection but it fits very well and works for me.
When I bought my first bike at 32 I was definitely in the market for safety gear. This is a great choice, the fit is true I am 5'11" 180lbs and it fits really good. At first I thought the shoulder pads were bulky and took them off. Week later had a crash which I would have gone uninjured had the shoulder protection still been on. I think the roost pads are useless and awkward, so I took them off. You don't really know it's there after a few minutes. It is very comfortable and vents well, but as any vest type article, it does trap heat in, which is to be expected. If it is in your price range, buy it, you won't be disappointed.
The first thing I noticed when unpacking the 5.5 Pro Chest Protector was its weight. It is heavier than my previous protector. I was a little concerned but once I put it on, I noticed the mobility was WAY better than my old protector. It was a little warmer than my previous protector too.
Once I was riding, I only noticed the excellent freedom of movement and forgot about the weight. Worth noting is that the extra weight is from the excellent padding. It did a great job of doing its job, by protecting me from roost, rock, and tree branches.
Just wore this the past weekend and it saved me from a shoulder injury. The shoulder pads are in the perfect spot. It's worth the money for these.
Leatt has gdone it again, It fits Great, Great Protection and looks Great TOO !!
Like all Leatt products everthing is top quality and very good fit. If you want great protection this is a great chest protector. Back protection is awsome shoulders I like because they fit on the round part of the shoulder. It might feel a little heavy at first but after awhile it I didn't notice it, good piece of equipment.
