    The 5.5’s are Leatt’s More protective line of chest protectors. The Chest Protector 5.5 Pro HD is the top of the line version of the 5.5 chest protector line. Specifically designed to meet the highest safety approvals for front, back and shoulder impact protection. But we didn’t stop there. The Pro HD has added hardshell flank protection lined with 3DF foam. This flank protection overlaps with the front and back plates creating an integrating, multilayer protection area over some of your most vulnerable parts. Three dimensional design with eight, multi-layer, articulating plates, for a great fit. It has also been designed to integrate perfectly with all Leatt neck braces although it works equally well without a neck brace. Exclusive FlipFit front and rear, movable, plates allow your neck brace to fit under the protector, for outside the jersey use, or wear the protector under your jersey and your brace can still fit over the top. BraceOn™ strap system attaches the protector to the neck brace yet provides independent movement of body, brace and chest protector. The 5.5 line of protectors are the best fitting, most protective line of hard shell protectors available today.
  • The back of protector meets the highest back impact CE approval, CE EN 1621-2, Level 2.
  • The front of protector meets the highest front impact CE approval, prEN 1621-3, Level 2.
  • The shoulder protectors are impact tested and CE certified to CE EN 1621-1.
  • Integrating, multilayer flank protection area.
  • Removable, bio-foam upper arm roost guards.
  • Extremely high impact testing results achieved by use of Leatt’s new 3DF foam in front and back.
  • Fits over or under the jersey.
  • 47 ventilation slots for maximum cooling.
  • Perforated 3DF foam helps air flow.
  • Hard shell outer shield made of High Density Poly Ethylene (HDPE).
  • Adjustable over the shoulder straps help insure a great fit.
  • Adult size fits riders from approx. 150 to 190 lbs.
  • Adult XXL size fits riders approx. 190 to 240 lbs.

Great product - EXCEPT shoulder pads

Comments On Apr 23, 2015:Love how it all works with my neck brace. Easy to custom fit with the adjustable straps etc. Easy to forget you have it on. Just an over all great product for core protection with a brace.
If RIB protection is a big part of your purchase decision, this is a great product.
REALLY bummed about the shoulder pads though. Both mine and another guy I ride with. The little rubber tabs that hold the shoulder pads on basically pull right out of the cloth slits that holds them in place. We have tried extra zip ties in behind the cloth but nothing seems to hold these on. As of now - the cloth "slits" are basically shot/stretched out beyond use.
We are going to try and permanently attach these somehow - as they are an important reason I purchased this item. (shoulders and ribs!!) Would be great if they came up with a retro-fit for this part of the protector.
IF shoulder protection is a key to your purchase - hold off on this item until they get this part fixed!

Leatt Brace 5.5 Pro HD Roost Deflector

Comments On Jan 29, 2015:Pros: - The integration with neck brace is great along with the options of running it under and over jackets and jerseys. Quality construction. Good rib and side protection. Good comfort on the torso. Cons: - Shoulder pads need to be better attached to the body section, they come unhooked very easily. Also the tend to slide around to the backside of the upper arms. Would like to see bigger and more protective shoulder and arm pads with an easier system of attachment, removal and articulation.

Additional Comments On Mar 23, 2015:Cons: With riding in it for a few months now the design of the shoulder and arm pads is real frustrating. They come off when putting on, the pop off while riding, they slide down the arm or move to the back of the arm/shoulder.
- I have a hard time believing that they actually did any product testing before releasing.
- I have all integration point wrapped in duct tape to keep it in place.

Nice product

Comments On Feb 15, 2015:Except for the shoulder pads,this is a 5 start product. There is no adjustment for the pads and they hang down too far on my shoulders.
It runs large. I'm 6' tall and weigh 235. For the chest protector to fit correctly,I have it adjusted as small as it will go.
I'm guessing this thing would fit a guy 260+

Worth the money

Comments On Feb 06, 2015:You get what you pay for. This chest and back protector replaced my Fox airframe and does the job much better. Expensive yes but don't cheap out on safety gear. EVER. this chest protector is much cheaper than going to the hospital. My only complaint is that the plastic strap that attaches the right shoulder piece to the back of the protector slipped out once causing the shoulder piece to flap around a bit until I pulled over to put it back in. Only happened once though.

Fits well...Redesigned for better durability!!

Comments On Sep 17, 2014:The fit is fantastic and it's very comfortable, but the arm pads lasted one ride and one of the Velcro strips tore off, so most of this season has been without them. Now a shoulder pad won't stay attached. The hole that the catch is inserted into is bonded with a small piece of rubber/plastic that tears out, and then they won't stay for even a single ride. It's too bad because other than flimsy construction, they would protect very well.
I hope Leatt takes these reviews to heart, because I wouldn't buy another, or recommend one until these weak areas are corrected.

Additional Comments On Sep 17, 2014:I placed a call to Leatt and was informed that these issues have indeed been modified, and they are going to replace my chest protector at the end of this season. As soon as that's complete I will change my rating

Additional Comments On Jan 17, 2015:Leatt has replaced my 5.5 Pro with a redesigned version, free of charge. The new design has addressed all of the durability issues that I had previously mentioned and I'm excited to start the new season with this! Not only is this a well made item, but the company has proven to stand behind their products!!!

Great Chest Protector

Comments On Dec 19, 2014:I really like the 5.5 Pro HD. It's super comfortable and the rib protection is a huge bonus. There is a weak link. The adjustable web used to attach the shoulder pads to the protector is pretty flimsy. My riding bud launched himself over the bars with the 5.5 Pro HD and a shoulder pad pulled loose from the protector....shouldn't have happened. Week after that I noticed mine was doing the same thing from just putting it on and taking it off. Weak design for Leatt. But, I like the rest of the protector so much I'll have a shoe shop sew some beefy stitching in these areas and be good to go. I've seen other reviews with the same issue. Is Leatt listening??

Leatt Brace 5.5 Pro HD Roost Deflecto

Comments On Jul 28, 2014:Good quality chest protector. Inasmuch as it's suppose to work with the Leatt, the GPX Adult brace did not fit well.
I ending up used this without the GPX for full body protection. I especially like the way it protects the ribs.

Great product

Comments On May 12, 2014:I did a ton of research looking at all of the chest protectors available on the market. I looked at full armor jackets as well but finally decided on the Leatt 5.5 HD as I wanted something to just add chest, back, shoulder and side protection. I liked how the Leatt had the shoulder protection in the right place. Too many "chest protectors" have shoulder protection on the top of your shoulder, with little or none for the side where you most likely will hit, the Leatt had it in the right place. The chest and back protectors where in the right place on the Leatt as well. What really sold me on the Leatt 5.5 HD was the side protection, something that nearly all chest protectors and armor jackets lack. I bought the Adult size, I am 5'9" 190lbs and it fit just about right. I adjusted the shoulders out one notch on the back side so they sat lower, and adjusted the chest/back so it sat lower and a little more forward. I adjusted the side protectors out one notch as well. The only snug thing is the bicep straps, they could have been a little larger, but they are nice to have as they help hold the shoulder cups in place. I was worried that the side (rib) protectors would rub under my arms but honestly I don't notice them there at all while riding. The top corners of the front chest protector push a little into my pectorals when i have my camelback on which pulls it a bit, but it really wasn't a problem. Great product, obviously riding without protection would be less cumbersome and cooler (heat wise), but having the protection in place gives peace of mind. I spent a week riding with it in Moab and took a few tumbles where I landed on my shoulders, I was glad to have this on.
