Well worth it.
So, I took a hit the other day riding. My Alpinestars did it’s job and didn’t allow my bars to break my ribs when I hit them. Well, the buckle managed to break in the process. I contacted Rocky Mountain trying to buy a replacement because it was my fault and no fault of the equipment. RM had me take a picture. They contacted Alpinestars and warranty the buckle free of charge. I cannot tell you how much respect both RM and Alpinestars just got from me.

Over priced
I couldn't stand the two sections on the arms and shoulders, so they came off. Now I'm wearing just the vest which is okay, but other companies make just a vest for a lot less money. Keep looking this ones not worth the money.

Light, well vented, protective, and comfortable
I originally got this protector when my pressure suit proved to be way too hot for summer singletrack riding. Very impressed with the fit and overall quality. The protector is very light and the airflow is absolutely amazing. You really don't feel it at all when riding, or wrestling with the bike, exactly what I was looking for.

Fit with a Leatt neck brace is alright. Pretty good in the back, but the front could be better. Workable though.

I have about 40 hours of hard riding on this protector, including a lot of tree hits and probably over a dozen spills in every possible direction, some of which were onto rocks. It's all scuffed up, but I've have zero bruises, so I guess it works!

Fell apart after a little over a year of light use
I really liked this chest protector until the snaps that hold the foam on it started falling off. This is with a little over a year of light use. I contacted Alpinestars about it and there are no replacement snaps available. So now my $200+ chest protector that is otherwise perfect and a little over a year old is worthless due to some poorly engineered snaps that there is no replacement for. This is pathetic. My previous chest protector lasted for 15 years with multiple racing seasons on it.

Nice piece but not as comfortable and robust as
the Leatt. I wanted to like this (and keep it) as it looks great, is light weight, feel like it could breathe well.

But when comparing it to the Leatt, the 5.5 HD felt like it would protect better, with better coverage along the ribs, shoulders, back (everywhere) and thicker armor. The Leatt kind of envelopes you and the A10 kind on sits on top of you. Some of the edges and one rivet point were digging in uncomfortably on the A10. The A10 back coverage does not go down as far either.

The A10 does not accommodate my braces (Leatt and Atlas), except for wearing they on top of the armor, which is uncomfortable. The Leatt holds the 5.5 brace perfectly.

The A10 shoulder pads seem durable and mounted securely, whereas those from Leatt not connected as well. An extra $20 and trip to seamstress should fix this.

Now the Leatt will likely be hotter, but I wanted extra protection as I'm sitting here recovering from shoulder slamming into road base from a low side. The Leatt shoulder cups are definitely better coverage.

Didn't mean this to be a comparison between the two but hopefully this will help someone.

All that being said I think the A10 will be just fine for those looking for more minimal, lightweight coverage. It is constructed well, breathes, and is light.

Is this to wear outside or under?.
JOSEPH W C on Feb 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Either way. I wear it under my jersey to keep it clean. I wash my jersey every time anyway, so might as well keep the chest protector as clean as possible. Even under the jersey, it will still work with the neck brace from Alpinestar.
Sizing? Seems too much variation? I am 6'1 190 athletic/even weight distribution build. Not sure what size? Would a med/large bee too small and XL too big?
Josh S on Jul 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am 5' 10" , 180# , "older"(54) athletic build and med/lg seems to fit spot on for my trail and single track riding. Really like the protector so far.
Can you run this with a kidney belt?
A shopper on Nov 20, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I wore it with a kidney belt ,however it has broken several plastic rivets and has threads that have come apart on the arm pads . And I have to pay to return it to California myself for warranty. So I woul look elsewhere considering I only wore it approximately 6xs in total
Are the shoulder pads removable?
Jared J on Jul 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the shoulder pads are removable.
After only 5 rides... the Velcro that holds the shoulder guard in place came un-stitched. I read elsewhere that this is common. Over $200 and this!!

Did yours do this?
JOHN M on Feb 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I'm sorry to hear this has happened. If you could email in some pictures showing where it is un-stitching to [email protected] we will be able to start a warranty claim for you on this.
How well ventilated? I purchased the Leatt 5.5 and its stifling hot, cannot wear it in GA races in the summer but it's great otherwise. I'm looking for a lot of protection without the heat.
Ray F on Jul 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: My son had a Leatt youth protector with the integrated neck brace and just moved to the alpinestars A-10. He loves the A-10 and it is much more comfortable for him than the Leatt. He wears the A-10 under his jersey and then we use the BNS Alpinestars neck brace over his jersey. He removed the shoulder pads that helped make this less hot to ride in.
How well does this protect the ribs and kidneys?
Michael P on Jun 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The kidneys are not protected at all. (No kidney belt).
Ribs are fairly well protected. There a armored pads on the sides and with breast plate, the ribs are covered.
Hope this helps.
Will a Leatt neck brace work with this roost deflector ?

Leatt GPX 4.5 Neck Brace
Leatt GPX 4.5 Neck Brace
BEST ANSWER: It should. It's very low profile. The parts of the neck brace that are in contact with your chest and back are maybe 1/4 inch thick. Take your time to adjust how the neck brace sits and you should be fine.
I cannot stand how chest proctors move around. How does the A10 do as far as moving around while riding?
JOHN M on May 1, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It fits well and does not move around like my Fox protector did. Very well made and holds up to impact
How long does the warranty last on this?
Jacek S on Mar 15, 2020
BEST ANSWER: 6 month standard warranty. But, if anything happens outside that 6 months, contact us and we can reach out to the manufacturer.
I bought this chest protector for my 15 y.o. daughter 5'2' 98 lb I wonder what neck brace would fit best ? Should I get Alpinestars BNS that is more for adult size or there are some better options for youth that might work better ?
Andrew K on Mar 13, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I have this chest protector and it fits great with a leatt 5.5 neck brace....it looks like it will accommodate most current neck braces.
