First real roost/chest protector I've had but I can't imagine needing or wanting more than this. It never limits motion or flexibility when riding but definitely helps with both roost and impacts when falling on rough trails. I'm not extremely brand loyal but I feel TLD makes very high quality products & have yet to be let down by anything I buy from them.

I've been using it now for awhile... comfortable and comforting.
Light weight, comfortable and breaths well, my son has had almost every type offered and likes this one the best
Does its job well. I have ridden on the MX track and the trails with it. Whether it be 20 min or 2 hours out riding I forget I am wearing it. Can be worn under or over jersey. I am 5'6 and the Medium fit me great out of the box. Had to make a few slight tweaks for the perfect fit. The Adjustments are simple to figure out and TLD sends extra screws just in case you bugger one up when customizing fit. Docked one star on durability due to one of the screw/clips breaking when I was adjusting fit. However, they give you 4 extra screws/clips.
Ive owned this chest protector before and I gotta say, its probably the best CP I have ever owned the only reason I ordered another one is the last one was stolen and the one I have is not nearly as comfy !
Also if you were a neck brace this is a must!!
We have tried many of these, trying to find one that fit comfortably and tight enough to wear under the jersey. This thing fits our 12 year old like a glove! He loves it!
I am 6' and 195 lbs and this chest protector actually fit. I bought another model by Leatt that proclaims "one size fits all" and it was tiny. The 5900 offers different sizes - I got the L/XL. It is very light but offers decent protection. It has a nice design that is made to accommodate a neck brace and needed no additional modification. That sold me...
After a bunch of failed attempts at finding a hard protector that fits well with my Leatt neck brace i finally found the one!
Pros: Looks, fit, weight, range of protection, possible adjustments, comfort.
Cons: It hugs you tight, and in turn it becomes hot to wear. (I wear over the jersey)
Note: The sizing chart is terrible. Found my self taking a gamble as my height would put me in a large but by the waist size would put me in a medium. I picked the large and it fits perfect! As stated by another reviewer here Unless you are under 5'4 or so i would say by the large. I am 145 Lbs 5'8".
I really like the way the panels on the sides and back are separate. It allows them to move and flex. I am not a big guy (150) and skinny. A size large adjusted all the way to longest setting didn't even reach my belly button which is unlike every other protector I've ever had. Definitely get a large unless you are under 5'4" in my opinion. Overall I like it though.
this is the best chest protector the only problem with this chest protector was that it fit a little small in the length but that's also because im about 6,0 ,1 so I had to order a large
