2 thumbs way up!!

Comments On Sep 08, 2015:Fits good, protects and keeps me cool. I ordered 2 initially and I love it so much I kept the other one. Never had a problem with the rivets and it still works after 2 month of riding every weekend at least twice. If you have issues you probably aren't using it right. Bionic neck support fits with it great too.

Good and Bad

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

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

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.
