Rated 5 out of 5 by rocheee great but could maybe change it a little
Everything about this product is great (if you know how bulky that front 'pad' is) if it is exactly what you want in terms of protection. I think this because I found that the pad at the front feels rather over exaggerated in terms of its lack of flexibility and how thick and hard it is; it seems to get in the way a little. This has lead me to feel this large pad would be better in the same material the hip protection is made of or not there at all (you can remove it but the similar looking back protector from leatt seems to have the same hip protection and not the big chest pad) to make it feel less bulky and make it a bit more lightweight.
That said I think everything else about it is spot on, it fits perfectly with my 5.5 leatt neck brace, it seems to clean well as it doesn't seem to shrink after a wash and the back protector is just right in length and the fact its made of the quite bulky material as the front is I feels right without limiting movement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good, but hot
I've had trouble finding torso armour that is properly leatt compatible, and this is the best i've seen so far.
The foam padding is very hard, and inspires confidence. It also fits well under a jersey.
On the negative side, it is very hot, and i find the chest piece on the front is perhaps too wide for my build.
