Tested by top pros and elite amateurs and designed to give riders the power to choose from multiple configurations for customized comfort and fit, unobstructed motion, and unprecedented protection.
I wear this every time i hit a lift chair. It is hot, as in the summer it is often 90 to 100 degrees in my area. It is not too hot though, just bring more water. When riding, i dont even notice it until a wreck. Then you notice the lack of injury. It is hard to remove and sized big. I have a 42" chest and a large is loose. I have used it for almost a year and it is in excellent shape still. I wash it about once every 4 days of riding.
This shirt breathes really well in hot weather which means you're wear it a lot more than the normal pressure suit type padding. The neck pads are removable so it fits nicely with any neck brace and you can pop the pads back in when you're not wearing one. Shirt is also really light even with all the pads.
I have been riding with this armor for a season now and I would definitely recommend it. It is light and doesn't make you look like a robot ( compared to "hard Shell" armor). The removable padding is perfect for riding with a neck brace or taking away bulk in areas you feel don't need extra protection 10/10
