Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great protection! Great Comfort! Great style!
I've been riding with this product for about 8 months. I find it is light, super comfortable, breathable, highly protective (great coverage) and looks great to boot. I chose this to mainly benefit from the shoulder/clavical coverage (which is excellent). Other than a handfull of minor spills, I've taken about 4 very big crashes (front & back). It has done an awesome job of preventing injury. The last crash I had, I landed heavily at a 3/4 angle on my back and only received a few little scrapes from the rocks to my lats. The marks on the armor suggest my injuries would have been a WHOLE LOT WORSE had I not been wearing it. My only negative is that this chest protector is relatively short, so one could say that it is lacking a little in lower lumbar protection. Personally, to make it into the ultimate setup, I am thinking about amending it with the TLD base layer armored short sleeved shirt. Over all, this is really awesome armor! I highly recommend it!

If your a cyclist this is the one.Protection everywhere you need it light comfortable and stylish. I tried at least 4 other brands until I found this product and they come no where near this especially for rib protection which most others don't include. I don,t usually praise many things in life but I do this and to be fair most other TLD body armour products which I have now invested in. PS It does work because I have had 2 heavy crashes and walked away, top notch gear !!!!!!!!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by Anonymous Great bit of kit
This is a great bit of kit, very light and the coverage is excellent for the shoulders, you may want a kidney belt to cover the lowest part of your back though. Fits well with the leatt neck brace, not perfectly but good enough. Its much cooler than my 661 pressure suit and the shoulders stay in place. Be careful not to round the aluminium bolts off when changing the parts to fit the brace. The bolts are colour coded according to bolt length to help. If you are using a neck brace you will need to wear the armour on the outside of your top/ t-shirt so will look like a stormtrooper! Could do with some more comprehensive instuctions though.
