I'm a believer
Typically I do not wear a chest protector, but after taking some heavy hits and punishment from roost I decided to give this one a try. It is molded to be slim and sleek, so it fits under a jersey without being too bulky. It gives you the option to remove the back plate as well as the little shoulder pads that can be used to secure a neck brace. It breathes well and reduces the punishment from roost drastically.

roost guard
Nice roost guard, good construction and quality. Using in conjunction with an Alpinestars neck brace and the fitment is good. As always fast shipping from Rocky Mountain.

Won't work with Atlas neck brace
Great product!. Light, comfy, fits snuggly, great construction. The airflow is probably the best out there and the protection is really good overall.
But it won't work properly with any neck brace different from the Alpinestars. Not even the Atlas I have.
Take this into consideration if you are trying to make a neck brace / roost guard set.

Great quality
The fit is a little snug, but I'm 220... I wear under the jersey. Light weight and breathable. good design, easy on and off. more comfortable than the F*X brand.

Lightweight but enough
The A1 is about as light as it gets. The material is flexible and breathable but holds up to roost and light get-offs.

Will this chest protector work with a neck brace on top of the jersey and the protector under the jersey?
A shopper on Nov 21, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, that's how I ride. I have the 1st gen Alpinestars Bionic Neck Support. The only thing you can't use if wearing under the jersey are the straps on the protector to hold the neck brace down.
If you're 6'0" and about 185 pounds with a 40 inch chest what size would work best? It seems I would be right in between sizes. Thanks.
JOE M on Apr 10, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6'1 and I have the XL
All of the straps are made well and it has excellent adjustability.
Can you wear this under your jersey?
Randy H on Dec 1, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Yes it can, but it's better on the outside in my opinion because the little bungee cords on the shoulder straps hook onto your neck brace clips. This roost guard is the perfect balance between the heavy duty and a light weight soft guards.
Do you have an image of the back?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2016
BEST ANSWER: If you click on the picture of the item it will show you back of it as well.
Can it work with the leatt Gpx beck brace ?
adi m on Oct 30, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Yes, I Have no issues, works fine.
Can you wear this under jersey and leatt neck brace on top?
Rick H on May 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: It works well under a jersey and works fine with my Alpinestars neck brace. I haven’t used it with a Leatt so I’m not sure about that.
I just bought this guard and BNS Compatibility instructions are a little vague. When wearing this with an alpinstars neck brace, I know you’re supposed to remove the pad from the back of the roost guard. But are you also supposed to remove the pads from the front of your neck brace where it rests on your chest?
Chris R on Aug 10, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I don't think so. I didn't remove the brace pads and it works fine for me. I wear this guard under my jersey and the from of the neck brace rests on top of it just like Justin Barcia. ;)
Can you buy extra pins that the red clips clip to?
Colin C on Dec 10, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have this chest protector but haven't had to buy any parts to it. I would call Alpinestars direct for a warranty if you have had an issue with the pins I'm sure they will take care of you.
