Few companies are as accomplished and qualified as Chris Leatt’s Leatt. It all started in the early 2000s when Leatt and his son witnessed a fatal accident at their local motocross track. A general practitioner and racer himself, Leatt used his expertise and insight to innovate the safety product that got his company on the radar in 2004 – a neck brace. Leatt has been around ever since, setting new standards of protection for the industry.
Today, Leatt is still revered for their neck braces, but has expanded their scope to include more riding gear like pants, jerseys, helmets, gloves, goggles, and more, along with accessories like gear bags and riding backpacks.
Safety is still a top priority for the company, too. In 2008, the company launched their revolutionary Leatt Lab, a state-of-the-art testing center complete with unprecedented prototyping equipment and an educated and dedicated R&D team. Every product that carries the Leatt name goes through that lab, ensuring that their safety gear and other riding gear is prepared for every situation on the track.
Leatt isn’t taking any chances, so neither should you. For industry-leading protection and top-of-the-line quality, shop our collection of Leatt riding gear and accessories.

I am 5'10", 190 lbs, 40" chest. I bought the 5.5 pro HD and 6.5 Body protector to compare. Ultimately went with 6.5. (Comparison below) I WEAR A NECK BRACE and that's mainly where most of the points I compare are relevant. This protection feels very comfortable. I would wear OVER the jersey because of the neck brace straps. It's slightly wonky to take on and off because of the arm strap/loops. The neck brace I use (leatt 3.5 GPX) fits very well. Comparisons - Leatt 6.5 Body Protector VS Leatt 5.5 Pro HD I bought both to compare. My reasons for going with 6.5 are 1. The "Brace On" straps on the 5.5 seem flimsy and weak. I felt like the neck brace was not as securely held in place (see pic - the wider elastic is the 5.5 and is quite loose. The tight band on the right is the 6.5 and it is a stong elastic band) 2. The 5.5 shoulder protection does NOT stay in place while I am wearing it. The single strap at the top is nice if you want to remove them but does not hold the shoulder cover in place. Not what I want if I down hard and slide. 3. The 6.5 has the kidney belt (which could be removed) as part of the base layer and makes everything super secure and under the jersey.Read All Reviews

My philosophy to riding gear is that more is better. I don't have much time to ride, so I like to be able to get up from spills and keep riding and not be wiped for the day -- this helps with that. In summer I tend to just wear this alone (unless I'm riding where there is brush or stuff that will tug at it, then I put a super light jersey over it) I do wish the shoulder protection wrapped more around the front, but that's about my only complaint. I don't notice it while riding, no irritations. I don't think I get too warm in it either.Read All Reviews

I?ve actually owned two of these! The first one I broke from wheeling over at 50mph. It did its job and broke where it needed to. I walked away completely fine, and I slid on it for a while. After I broke that one, I immediately bought another one because I liked it so much.Read All Reviews
