Bought this chest armour after having a bad fall previously last year not wearing any chest armour. This armour is great because you have lots of adjustments and extras, not all chest armour comes with. spine protection can be removed completely or just the top section to allow wearing of a neck brace and also arms can be unzipped so you can either not wear them or perhaps wear alternative elbow pads with the chest. Only downside I would say is, is on a hot day you do get quite hot wearing this and the kidney belt has a tendency to rise upwards if not done up tightly. Apart from that very comfortable. It also saved me from some bruises when my bike landed on my back, due to its spine protectors large area, because of this turning your body can be restrictive.
