I chose the Leatt 5.5 Body Protector after trying on the Leatt 6.5 body protector, the Alpinestars Bionic V-tech 2 and several other pressure suits and chest protectors. Both the Leatt 5.5 and the Alpinestars Bionic V-tech fit really good and were comfortable (unlike the Leatt 6.5 for me at least) But the 5.5 seemed to have way better protection all over but especially in the rib area than the AS Bionic V-tech. The Leatt 6.5 had good rib protection but did not fit me like the 5.5 does. I liked the 6.5 because it was 2 pieces where the 5.5 is one piece. It is a little more difficult to put on and maybe a little fragile with the small zipper and thin fabric that holds it all together so you have to take your time and be careful. But it paid for itself in the first week of owning it as I took a pretty good fall in the hard pack dirt and I am 100% sure it saved me from breaking my elbow and possibly my shoulder due to the fact that the hard shell elbow/forearm and shoulder protection stayed in place. I still bruised both shoulder and elbow and got my bell rung but I got back on the bike and didn't go to the hospital. IMO it's worth every penny I spent on it. I'm 5'7'' and about 160 and I bought the large.Read All Reviews

Really like the fit of the jacket. The armor is fitted and stays in place nicely. It has a hard shell on the outside and should give good protection if/when it is needed.Read All Reviews

As a more endowed woman, it's been nearly impossible to find roost protection that I didn't completely hate, much less one I actually liked. The hard plastic ones were always uncomfortable (even the ones "made for women"). They would move and ride up, making me uncomfortable and irritated. A lot of the under jersey options were still too stiff to adjust around areas I needed it to adjust around but the Leatt nails it. It's super comfortable and light enough I can't really tell I'm wearing it. The only complaint I have, and the reason I took off a notch for comfort was because the bottom of the padding rubs a little if I'm leaned forward a lot but I usually wear a tank top anyways so not a major deal and it's still soft enough that it doesn't bother me. It also has a lot to do with my shape. I'll definitely be buying this again should this one see its final days.Read All Reviews

I'm initially impressed with the fit. The pads are adequate, not too big, not too small. It's lightweight and doesn't look bad so you could wear it with or with out a jersey, or under a jacket. I also feel like I'm really going to like the zipper down the front left for getting it on and off. Seems rugged, can't say anything about durability, haven't ridden in it yetRead All Reviews
