Rated 5 out of 5 by Vale protects your spine and chest
One should never skimp on protective gears. With life and work commitments hanging around me, I could not afford to get any serious injury. People might say what they want but if anything happens, the one who will be suffering and lying on the hospital bed is yourself.
I got this item as I was looking for an amour that would protect my back and chest areas and relatively light, not bulky and breathable. The core saver ticks all the right boxes.
Starting from the back, the spine protector covers your WHOLE spine. Unlike other armours which usually covers only the top half. Thick padding at the sides protects your kidneys which is useful especially if you flipped over the bars and the bike would likely land on your back. Prior to buying this, I had encountered where my bike landed on my back and saddle hit at the back of my kidney which left a huge bruise for the next 3 weeks. The core saver had this covered.
The chest armour is a little too small in my opinion but it does covers your sternum and the middle of the chest which is not a big deal for me. The shoulder paddings does little to protect your shoulder but its still better than nothing.
Remove the top 3 spinal plates at the back and it accommodates my Leatt neck brace well.
Sizing is accurate and i loved the side zip for easy donning.
I wore this over my jersey as it gets a little warm if i wear it inside. For reference, im from Singapore and its always humid and temperature usually hangs around 30 degree Celsius.
If you are contemplating whether to get this product, stop thinking and buy it!
