These gloves are awesome at first glance. Fit very well and have a very clean look to them. No rough edges or bad seems. And overall have a nice unique look to them. That is until they start to fall apart. Although the fabric has held up pretty nice and not torn or anytjing the palms only stay that nice grey color for maybe one to two rides then turn a nice black color and look really worn. That's a little understandable though considering the material. But then the rubber padding on the knuckles and fingers starts to fall off after only a few weeks of moderate riding. So if you want some good looking gloves to wear every once in awhile then maybe these are for you. But if you want something that will last and be worth your money I don't recommend them. Definitely not worth the money...
This is the third upper-body protection piece I have purchased in total. I have owned the Leatt Adventure 5.5, the 3DF Airfit upper body piece, and now this Fusion 3.0. This is truly like wearing an exoskeleton, and it might actually be overkill. In extreme situations where I want maximum coverage (where I know I might be falling/wrecking, say doing a race) I will double-up and wear the 3DF under the Fusion 3.0 protection; it is unmatched coverage, but often overkill. The Fusion 3.0 seems like a great addition to the arsenal of personal protection on the market. I am happy with my selection!
After breaking my ribs wearing a chest protector with no side protection, I decided I didn't want to do that again. This product provides the side protection I was looking for. As mentioned, it is pretty hot to wear. There are removable upper arm pads that I couldn't really figure out how they are supposed to fit, so I took them off. I wear elbow guards that offer some upper arm protection anyway.
When you wear this chest protector you really feel like you will survive a big get-off. Fits well and is comfortable. Well vented while offering significant chest, back and shoulder protection. Hope I never have to find out!
