Whether on the track or trail, don’t go unprotected. ATV chest protectors not only protect from roost thrown up by other machines, they can also save you from the pain of that unexpected branch around the corner or that fall you didn’t plan on.
Fortunately, there are plenty of options. Many chest protectors are designed to fit over your jersey, and they are built to look great as well as offer the fortification you need. But not all of them are designed this way, so if you don’t like the idea of obstructing your jersey, don’t sweat it. We also have roost deflectors that can fit underneath your jersey.
Today’s technology enables chest protectors the ability to offer an exceptional level of protection without restricting movement or otherwise making you feel uncomfortable. We’ve got the top brands that are known for quality, including Leatt, EVS, Fox Racing, Thor and many others. Take a look to see for yourself.

Purchased because it seemed to offer a high level of protection and also covered the lower ribs (which is rare). Unfortunately like most of my other Leatt purchases the construction and quality is sub-par, especially considering the price. The mesh fabric of which all the armor is loosely sewn to rips very easily. Mine ripped in several places just from putting it in/taking it off. If you wear this without a jersey it’ll likely get snag and something quickly and rip extensively. The zipper is awkward and too tight putting undo strain on the already weak stitching in the area when zipping up. Finally, as mentioned before, the stitching attaching the armor to the mesh is as weak/weaker than the fabric it attaches to. My left shoulder pad completely ripped off and now must be affixed with zip-ties. Maybe a seamstress can fix this but most likely they’ll turn the job away as there’s no suitable fabric to attach to.

I've had mine for a couple of years now. I am getting older and refuse to slow down so I figured I would gear up. I have taken many "dirt samples" while wearing this, including some hard over the bars and high sides. My last crash, as I was flying through the air, the thing going through my mind was literally, I'm glad I have my gear on. Haha! I only have a couple of little issues, which is why I put a 4 on comfort. It is great in the cold weather but very warm when it is hot out. The other is that the spine protector is a little long for my torso so I have to leave it on the outside of my pants with jersey untucked. Would I buy it again? Absolutely!Read All Reviews
