Nukeproof provides the critical armour - base perfect for any Mountain Biker

Our critical armour base has been developed in conjunction with the ChainReactionCycles.com/Nukeproof downhill and 4X team. We’ve used SaS-Tec protection foam on all impact areas for maximum energy absorption and impact protection.

The breathable, wicking base layer has sublimated Nukeproof graphics and has vented areas to keep you cool when the going gets rough.

Rated 4.3 out of 5 by 10 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by absolutey brilliant Very light, very strong and comfortable saved my skin more than once, still not ripped, great bit of kit- nukeproof , does what it says in the tin!;!; 02 June 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Large fit I like the idea but couldn't ware it because is way too large for the usual M size I bought. Its got a mile long arms! I'll buy another a size down! 16 April 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good base armour, good protection Fits great you forget its on during riding.....for a while until you get really hot, even in the cold it manages to warm you up and on a boiling day you start to notice it even more, however it has great protection, its really light and great value, it may be a hassle getting in and out of but well worth it, you can wear it without the over armour i do most of the time if you come off wearing it alone without the over armour you cant feel much difference it absorbs all the impact and stops grazing 08 March 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Very happy I bought this for basic trail riding as I'm a bit rubbish and am always finding that trees jump out on me. I wanted something comfortable and not too restrictive. This was perfect for the job, the protection isn't just normal foam, it's actually quite sturdy and will without a doubt absorb an impact. Fitment is pretty good. I went for the large, I'm 6ft ~ 86KG. Getting head through is a bit tight, and the tight non-elastic waistband makes getting arms/elbows through a little difficult, must be a design feature so it stays on your waist rather than riding up. Arms are a little long, but no big deal. 19 August 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by very good Have worn this a few times now on some tight singletrack where I normally knock my shoulders off trees,this armour base is great,still knock my shoulders but don't feel the pain now, you forget you are wearing it and the pads stay where they are meant to.Yes the sleeves are long but that suits me. 10 May 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Pretty good, but could do with better build quality So I've had this for a few months now, doing 1-2 rides a week with it. The fit is very impressive, and it's very comfortable to ride with on the trail. The padding is good and it makes you feel that little bit more invincible on the trail. Where it falls short is the build quality. After wearing it only a few times, the stitching started to come undone on the neck. Since then, I've been very careful when putting it on not to damage it any more. To this day though, I'm still using it. Would give 5 stars if they sort the stitching out. 25 April 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by Good I feel that this product is fantastic the foam provides more flexibility for riding, and while it appears soft the foam stiffens up upon impact to protect you. I ride with spinal protection as well and i feel that is enough to protect me from any fall. 04 January 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Good but not perfect Fed up with looking like Robo-Cop and feeling like I'm wrapped in a straitjacket so decided to get one of these and a stand-alone back protector instead. Good stuff: Incredibly comfy and if you follow the sizing guide (don't just buy medium 'cause that's what you normally do) if fits snug but not too tight. The pads are just the right size and in exactly the right place and after a few minutes warming up fit really well. Bad stuff: Build quality is poor with loose threads and material (particularly around the neck opening) and almost every time I put it on I hear another piece of thread or material snapping or tearing. For all its faults it's exactly what I wanted and all that really needs to be done is to maybe make a removable breastplate made of more substantial material to put in a sleeve/pocket in the chest instead of the pointless foam pad and to improve the quality of construction to make this, for me, a 5* product but because it's not it really only deserves a 4* minus rating. 12 October 2012

Answer: 
I don't know the answer but I can tell you that if you normally wear XXL then a XL will fit you OK. Their size is too big
