Rated 4 out of 5 by Anonymous Good kit, but beware...
I bought this to fit between my 661 Sub Gear shirt and my Evo Suit full armour. In that respect this shirt does fantastically well, and it is now almost the only armour I wear (unless I'm racing).
Two things though; 1) The sizes are a bit out. I am 5'6" tall and have a 40" chest, and weigh 11st. I bought the medium shirt and it is on the verge of being too big, despite the fact that according to the Troy Lee size charts I should have bought a large!!! 2) All of the padding is removable, EXCEPT the large chest plate and bottom spine plate. This seems totally bizarre to me, as they have gone to the trouble of ensuring that you can remove all of the other plates for easy washing, so why not these two?!?
Anyhow, that aside, this is a good shirt, but I should emphasis that I've not had any big off's while wearing it, so I've yet to find out just how good this Shock-Doctor stuff is...

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Awesome armour
Brought this Troy Lee under shirt Armour and had my first run out today at Chicksands...The first thing I noticed is that the air flows through it really well and you have protection over all areas such as clavicle, ribs sholders etc..
Its really light weight and you tend to forget your wearing it but feel protected all the same!! It looks much better than in the picture and above all else you feel safe to push it that bit harder Great buy really chuffed!!This is the one to go for if you use a kidney belt like me as the bottom is just material and the padding starts at rib level. Great Armour A1
