There built tough but there comfortable and designed so you can use your touchscreen with them on...which is what I'm doing now. Great gloves Leatt!

I definitely feel more protected by this vest and have noticed on hard landings on the MX track it significantly reduces the paint from your head snapping down as it limits the range of motion because I weigh 260lbs. The neco collar isn't as nice as the high end colors with the metal clasps and the shoulder guards are connected to the vest with a flimsy piece so I'm sure those would break loose on a crash and have to be fixed. Overall much better protection and comfort than anything else I've seen to date.

I like lead pads as they actually have sizes that fit me in XXL which no one else seems to have but they also seem to stay in place better and offer better protection and comfort. These are easily worn underneath riding pants for trail and MX being comfortable with leg sleeves or rash guard pants.

Would I buy it again - probably, but not if I could find one a little more light weight. Solidly constructed. Cut a little short for us old folks with big middles.

I chose this jacket to fit over my pads. I wanted a jacket that had ample pocket storage and was not heavy and pre-padded. I chose a size larger based on what I read from other owners. That was good advice. I like the fit, the finish, the look, the features, and the quality. Although I have not had it long and cannot speak to the long term durability it looks to be made very well.

I am a 179cm tall male who weighs in at 80-84kg's, with an athletic - solid build. I went with the Large/X-large, and it fits perfectly. And with so much adjustment around the waist and chest areas, I could see it fitting guys who are built more solid than I am. It is so comfortable to wear, but after riding and sweating, it is easy to take off, except for the bit around my upper arms. And I'm not saying that I have big guns or anything, it's just seems a little tight there. It give excellent protection as I have just had my Husky TC610 cartwheel over the top of me, and came out with miniscule soreness to a few ribs and a pulled muscle in my back. Not bad for an old fool with three chronic spinal injuries. The only downfalls for me are because I have never wore any body armor before, and I can feel the 3kg's on me and it restricts my movement a little. But that's the trade off for protection. The only other thing is that I don't think I will wear it in the middle of the Aussie summer as it doesn't have a lot of ventilation. So I will new, more breathable body armor in summer.
