Good and Bad

roscoe in IN

Comments On Jul 26, 2015:Bought this chest protector to go with the A-star neck brace. I've been wholly underwhelmed by it since day one and after two years now I mostly wear my old Fox chest protector especially in warm weather.
The good first. excellent impact resistance, very heavy duty front, rear and side protection. Works well with A-star neck brace. The bad. Interferes with movement of arms, poor design of shoulder area. Back too long and interferes with pants. Front doesn't conform to the body and feels weird especially when sitting on bike. Very hot and offers little to no ventilation.
I will be looking elsewhere next time I'm in the market for body armor.

Great protection

Steve in IA

Comments On Jun 03, 2015:We had issues after a nasty crash with the rivets ripping out of the shoulder pads but were able to order replacements from Alpinestars. I can't fault the product for the damage incurred during a crash. After all, it did do its job by preventing injury.

Shoulder pads come apart

Brian in Utah

Comments On Nov 07, 2014:I am on my second one and about ready to try it for the third time, the rivet in the left shoulder keeps popping out and the shoulder guard ends up flapping in the wind, even after just two uses. Once that rivet pops out it will not go back in. Other than that I really like the design and fit. If you guys could only fix the shoulder pads.

Life saver

jaden in Utah

Comments On Jul 27, 2014:This chest protector is a life saver. I love it, it protects any thing from rocks and dirt to fences and the hard ground. If you are looking for a chest protector get this one! It is worth the price it will save your life!
