This thing fits me great. I'm 6'0", 170. I don't even know I'm wearing it. I can wear under or over my jersey. I highly recommend.

Awesome Roost Deflector!
Watched Chase's Top 5 Roost Deflector Video and read the reviews on the TLD BG 5955. My choices were the Leatt 5.5 and this TLD. I'm so happy I made this purchase. The BG 5955 is very comfortable to wear, not bulky at all, and I like the coverage it provides front, side and back, especially how it wraps around on the sides. I wear it under my XL jerseys. Quality seems good.

Good protection, comfortable.
So far so good, I've worn it a couple of times and it's really comfortable. It feels like it will vent pretty good in the summer (pretty cold right now). I have not crash tested it yet, but it looks like it could take a pretty good hit.

Nice vest and comfortable over or under jersey
Great comfort, doesn’t restrict movement. I wear this under my jersey for enduros and hare scrambles and it comfortable. I used to use the jacket type protector and this is way more comfortable and lighter. I’m 6’2” and I thought it was a little small but after adjusting and using it it is good.

Great
It's great. I forgot I was wearing it. You can feel the air flowing through it. Seems well built and tough. For sure a little extra money, but I think it's worth it.

Lightest and Coolest!
Hands down the lightest and coolest body armor I have purchased to date and I have a butt load of them. I live in FL and race hare scrambles, recently I gave up on my wearing my Leatt 5.5 (which I love in the winter) as its too hot to wear in the warming months for me.

For those that use this protector with an Atlas Air brace, can you describe which pieces you've removed in order to accommodate the brace, or are you just adjusting the brace to fit over the protector as is? Thanks
Kevin T on Apr 3, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I am currently using this product with an Atlas Air brace. I attached the front of the brace with with a strap around the connecting pin of the brace to the slot on the front of the chest protector to hold it in place and keep it from moving left to right. When putting it on after your head goes through the chest protector you lift the neck brace over your head and slide the flat back plates inside the back of the vest. Didnt have to remove any pieces. Really like the set up.
Which neck brace adapts to this chest protector?
A shopper on Nov 24, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The way this chest protector is made it is compatible with most neck braces. Hopefully this helps.
Do any screws on this protector dig into the spine, or other bones? I have a Thor Sentinel and my biggest complaint is a metal fastener that rubs raw against my backbone, even wearing it over a jersey.
Ryan C on Oct 14, 2018
BEST ANSWER: This is one of the most comfortable chest protectors I have worn. Certainly haven't noticed any screws digging in anywhere. After wearing it for 10 minutes, I forgot that I had it on. Been using it for the whole year so far. My only complaint is that based on the recommendation from a RMATV customer service rep, as he stated this protector would work with my Atlas neck brace, but it doesn't. I stated that I wanted to wear the chest protector under the jersey (and it fits perfectly) and then use my neck brace over the top of the jersey. Even after removing all of the plates, it still didn't sit down into the chest protector. It just sits kind of clunky and wobbly. I didn't even bother to try and ride with it like that. So I haven't been using my Atlas. Not sure how other rides get under jersey chest protector with over jersey neck brace configuration to work.
I’m 5’6” 165lbs with a 40” chest. Curious as to which size I should choose? I’m on the high side for the medium but low side for the large and don’t want it to fit loose. Any thoughts?

Thanks in advance for your help!
Erik K on Mar 18, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6'1 195 bought the large and the first thing I did was lengthen the adjustable settings . The medium should adjust also. The adjustment is not that much though. I will say that these protectors are compact and not bulky at all I do wish they came down alittle further front and back. If you want a snug fit you might be better off with the medium. I wear the Nike hyper strong padded compression shirt underneath for additional rib protection. Hope this helps.
How does this chest protector work with the leatt 5.5 neck brace?
Robert K on Apr 22, 2017
BEST ANSWER: The BG 5955 will work fine with the Leatt 5.5. The BG 5955 is very modular, and customizable. There is one upper front piece under the neck, and one rear upper piece that should be removed to allow the Leatt to fit properly. Both pieces are held in with screws. Take your time removing the screws as they are light weight and could possibly strip if care is not used. The chest protector is comfortable and provides good coverage. The Troy Lee site has a good description and picture showing how the chest protector can be customized.
On the TLD cjest protector, has anyone added an extra pad so to give it full coverage? I love the way it feels on and the way it fits but I need full rib protection and wondered if i order replacement pieces if they would fit to convert it to make it a full coverage guard???
I'd appreciate any feedback. Im 5'5/148 female and can't seem to fit well in the other top 3 full coverage competitors
Allison H on Aug 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Allison, my son wears this chest protector so I am familiar with the construction. I'm not sure if the extra pieces will fit without modification but I have a secondary recommendation for you. Consider taking it to a local auto upholstery shop. They generally have have snaps, velcro, heavy sewing machines, etc. and often have to be creative in doing custom or repair work. They also have access to all types and density of foam. You might mention they consider 1/4" landau or closed cell foam like they would use under a vinyl top back in the day....Hope that helps
What is the CE rating of this protector?
Kyle S on Jun 23, 2017
BEST ANSWER: Troy Lee doesn't give a ce rating, but this is one of the most comprehensive and comfortable chest protectors that I have used in 40 years of riding?
My Chest is 46" I am 6'2" 210lbs. Will this fit? Do they make an XL?
Ben D on Sep 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: I’m 5’11” and it felt too small for me, so I opted for for the Fox chest protector.
What is the difference between this and the cp 5955? In stock pictures it looks like the way the shoulder pads sit. Or is it just a material difference?
Brett S on Mar 15, 2017
BEST ANSWER: I will not purchase any other roost Guard /Chest protector. I believe the only difference in the bg is the tricept extensions. This is the most comfortable form fitting roost I have ever worn and does not get hot. After the first few minutes of wearing it you forget you even have it on. Only thing I would like to see changed is for the protection to come down over the stomach area slightly further
