Rated 5 out of 5 by Saved me from a broken sholder Very good Armour. I'm 6'3" & about 86Kg, the L/XL fits perfectly, the spine protection is 0.6M long, so it covers all of my spine. it is very comfortable while riding, and you don’t get too hot, the chest protection is kinda lightweight, but I'm ok with that as it helps temperature control. I fell hard onto rocks while wearing this, and it definitely protected me from getting a broken shoulder. 16 September 2013

Rated 5 out of 5 by Looks and feels good. I wear this on the trails due to me not bouncing like I did in my early twenties. Not as uncomfortable as I thought it would be, only really noticed the spin guard catch you helmet and that was because of my bumbag pushing it up. Only thing I would say is the webbing straps that adjust the shoulder pads are made of smooth cheap webbing so they just slide through the plastic adjusters, but this is no biggy, nothing a couple of stitches won't put right. Got to be the coolest looking armour and it will take a bash or two. Had a few slips onto my back where rocks and roots would have done their damage, not this time!. 18 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by excellent bought for Morzine. Performed very well, its flexible where it needs to be and solid where it counts. Very breatheable and confidence inspiring. 30 July 2012
Rated 4 out of 5 by One of the best fro shoulder protection Had this a few years. I looked long and hard before buying as I wanted something with decent shoulder protection after having a nasty old shoulder separation accident previously. So many alternatives are just sooooo light on shoulder protection they really won't work in a hard crash. This is one of the best and at a good price Really like the fact there are no integrated elbow and forearm pads. it seems with alternatives the integrated elbow pads are also too light and dumbed down and often slide around a lot. With this you can pick your favorites that you can also use on their own when doing less extreme all mountain riding . Combined mine with hard shell Race Face DH pads - a solid combo. Only criticism is the waist belt - seems to be placed a little higher than would be ideal, not really an issue as such. If i were revising the design I'd suggest putting it lower and also combine with some padding to the top of hips and flanks - why does so little armour protect these areas?!?! When I crash its often the side of the upper hip and 'love handle area' that takes the impact... yet almost no armour actually protects this area........I may have to learn to sew and do some customisation! Good product !!! 28 July 2012

Is this armor neck brace friendly?

I have a neck brace and was wondering if the spine parts are removable so I can use my neck brace on it.

Thanks,

Answer: 
The spine protection is not removable and has generous padding which is about 2 inches thick all the way up... I guess if your neck brace can handle this then it would be compatible.

Answers

Answer: 
The IXS jacket was not designed in conjunction with a neck brace, so has no specific compatibility. The integrated spine protector is not removable (and quite substantial) so would interfere with the base of various neck braces, although some riders have found that wearing their brace under the armour is an option (albeit not the most comfortable approach).
