Rated 4 out of 5 by Stef Fit well and not expensive
It as a nice compression fit (look carefully to size guide). In chest area, due to the protection foam, I feel hotter than on standard compression top but it is acceptable. I wear it with a light bike jersey (Alpinestars Hyperlight Jersey) on top. Sweat spread well and it don't rash when wet, it could be use also for uphill section.
Not tested in real crash yet !
Shoulder protection look very good, shoulders are well covered and the cup looks hard enough to protect in case of fall on hard objects like stones! the compression fit keep the cup well pressed over shoulders.
The chest is covered by soft foam, the cut and dimension of foam are well done. The foam is softer than shoulder cup, it will probably not protect a lot in case of direct impact on hard or sharp objects. It looks more helpful in case of sliding crash without big impact on chest (more common crash on single trail downhill sections)

Rated 5 out of 5 by KonaChameleon Great armour, lightwieght too
Nice bit of kit that has saved me and my ruined shoulder a few times, i didn't want to look like robocop going down the DH tracks, it's a tight fit (being a compression top), and that makes it a bit warm in summer. but it's more than worth it for extra bit of protection without looking like the Michilin man. Good enough for big falls, but forgettable enough for general riding. Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by danyaLip92 Почти не чувствуется,но защита есть
Не чувствуется под одеждой-малый вес. При езде нечего не беспокоит. В ней не потеешь. Но не надейтесь,что при хорошем падении будет мягкое приземление. Увы, это не так. Сравнивать с полноценным панцирем вообще не стоит. Вместо резины в ней паралон.
