Great product!! My son was using an older protector and I surprised him with this new one. He was so excited! Fits great!
At one of his races he wiped out going up a big hill. The first thing he told me was that his new chest protector worked really well. 5 stars from this Mom!!
Although these fit great and appeared to offer great protection, one of the rivets popped out the first time I wore them and kneeled on the ground to take a picture. Another rivet popped out about an hour later after tipping over sideways at low speed. Not exactly the quality I was expecting for the price.
These are elbow gaurds that I saw on someone else at the Desert 100. I tried them on and immediately got my own. I've worn them for 9 days straight at Moab recently and I enjoyed incredible comfort and no slippage and no arm pump!
Before I get into this I'll make this one disclaimer: if you are small enough this product should work fine. However, if you are a big guy like me who is built like a NFL defensive end this jacket failed miserably. It runs small to begin with and the center zipper is a design flaw. What happens if you land directly on the zipper? It is much more prudent to have full chest protection. For me the zipper broke within seconds of putting it on. Well not broke but couldn't stay clappsed and just pulled apart. All in all I would say this jacket looks cool and may work if you smaller in stature but if you have any size on you keep looking elsewhere.
