I prefer the previous model
This model runs short on my long torso and makes me resemble pooh bear. I really like the integration with the bionic neck brace.

The kidney belt was much wider on previous model, so I have had that one repaired by local alteration shop.

Many people I ride with have moved to the FOX Titan.

The previous model literally saved my life when I had a head on collision with a SXS June 2018. The arm guards absorbed a huge amount of energy from the roll cage that I hit at 50mph (Combined) which did not break my arm, and only left a scar.

Excellent product
I previously owned a Fox jacket similar to this and this one beats the Fox hands down in fit, comfort and protection. You are making an excellent choice with this product.

This Jacket....will PUMP YOU AHP!
I bought a medium which is comfortably tight on my 160 lb, 5'7" build. I wouldn't want it loose. I have yet to take a tumble in it, but just wearing it gives me confidence I won't be badly bruised up if I do. Plus it makes me look BUFF! I ride in mild Utah weather, and this keeps warm and vents well wearing just a jersey over it.

Great Jacket
Not sure if i am lucky, fits me perfectly,
size M, 74Kg, 182cm tall, lean build,
use, tropics, +32ºC temp RH +80% (think Hawaii on a hot day)
Is super comfortable no problems on long (10h+) rides
no chafing or aggravation.
Protection is really good, had a few tumbles onto rocks and sticks, and nothing hurt, so it worked really well.

Cant take the back protection off, but not a big deal, is quite slim and not a bother,
I find it a bit hot at times but so are all these types of jackets,
can feel the wind on my skin at about 30Km/h+ so it vents well.
Zipper and Velcro seems strong,
Some adjustment, works okay with a backpack.
Rate it better than the FOX jacket that is similar.
Holding up well to wear and tear.

Pretty comfy
I'm not a big guy but my belly hangs out of the bottom. It's not too, too hot for what it is. I don't really notice I'm wearing it while I'm riding. Pretty good for the $.

I have worn this for a few months now, when you first put it on it feels like it will be annoying but when I am riding I don't notice being on or restrictive. This weekend I came up short on a triple and had a hard crash. I am almost certain if I had not been wearing this my right shoulder would be destroyed. The hard armour took all the abuse and the way it cups your shoulder it distributed the impact well. It did tear my slave on it a bit but it also tore the Jersey sleave I am going to try to fix it but if not worth the $150. I am 5' 9" 180lbs and wear a large.

It's the best compromise I could find.
Tried on Thor, Leatt, EVS, and Fox. Fox sport jacket felt the best and fit the best but I just can't do the unbelievably long back protection. And my torso is actually quite long so I don't know who that would work for.... I'm 6' 1" 180lbs and probably would have gone a size smaller if I was using it for dirt bike only but I use it for snowmobiling as well and going smaller wouldn't allow for any additional layers. Breast pieces are just a bit too wide for me and rub on my are when standing on bike. I'll have to wear it with a shirt underneath to make it more comfortable. Venting is quite good though and I do like the hard plastic for impacts.

I like it!
I bought this jacket for the upper body protection, and I really like it. It fits well, provides plenty of protection, and can be worn by itself when it's hot out, or over, and under other layers when it's cooler. Also makes me look really buff!

Jacket
Jacket protected well. I ha a three spills w no damage. Venting worked great while moving otherwise a little warm. Having the zipper in the front mitigates that problem. I’m not giving 5 stars for three reasons. The plastic shoulder pads are very narrow, no flank protection and the sizing is much to small. I bought a 2XL because I was warned by the other reviews. I’m 6.3 and 215 pounds with 33 waist. You should consider one to two sizes up.

are the elbow protectors actually attached to the jacket or are there adjustable straps from shoulder protectors ?
donald z on May 19, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are all attached and fixed in place with tension adjustors to how tight it fits, but not the position. The position is controlled just by sliding the sleeve on your arm to the proper position. I always ware mine under my jersey and have found this jacket to be one of the best fitting for my body type and comfort of fit. None of the plastic parts hit my helmets in a negative way as some of the other protection jackets have.
Can you wear your jersey over it ?
A shopper on Jun 8, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I tried to wear mine, and it was very difficult. Part of the reason is that i bought this and the neck brace, which i would recommend, but in wearing them both, the tab that connects the vest with the brace on both sides makes it hard. Plus the neck brace is huge... and doesn't work very well under a jersey. If you aren't using a neck brace, it would work fine. I just decided that i won't wear a jersey any more... and i do love this jacket, its so easy, comfortable, and a lot of great protection.
According to the size chart I am inbetween Small and Medium. My Chest size is 38 and my height is a 5'4" Would going to a medium be a best fit?
mark v on Mar 12, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Are you in between on all of the measurements in the chart?

If you are then I'd ask if you could buy both and return the one that doesn't fit too well. I did that with the leatt knee guards.
is the back pad removable?
Adam M on Aug 7, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The upper portion of the back protector is removable so that a neck brace will fit.
Is the exterior armor on this hard or soft?
I'm worried if it's soft it will break apart as it gets whacked by tree branches.

I've been using a fox titan for the past years, the outer armor on that is hard plastic with padding underneath and it takes abuse but the vipers have been failing and the mesh jacket part just gets shredded.
Gregory H on Mar 28, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I am 5'6" tall and have used a few other armor systems and this one is has been the best one to date. It could use some improvements but fits well and ventilates surprising well too with its sweat wicking material. Outer shell pieces are hard plastic that is supported by suspending foam padding that is sewn around the plastic piece at the perimeter, and it takes impacts very well, I've tested it several times unfortunately. The inner mesh material is not overly tough, so care should be taken in handling when not in use. Being a short stature person, I am pleased that I do not have any issues with my helmet hitting the back pad or the chest pads either, as i have a short neck. I'll buy this product again unless i find something better.
Does this work with a leatt neck brace?
david f on Apr 8, 2018
BEST ANSWER: That all depends on how long your neck is and how big your shoulders are. I am 5‘6“ tall and have a short neck and reasonable size shoulders, and the shoulder cups are very close to my helmet, so there’s no way I could ever use a leatt brace. I’ve used a few different body armor systems and the system fits me the best, it’s fairly cool, and provides excellent protection as I’ve used it several times now in crashes. Being short stature, I didn’t want to system that would wedge into my abdominal region but I wanted lower back protection coverage in addition to shoulders for arms and upper back. I also didn’t want my helmet to be impinged on motion in the back, front or shoulders like some of the other body armor systems have caused for me.
Will it fit a 150 cm boy ?
