I've never ridden with a back support so I considered removing it, but the armor feels like it's riding up if you do that. I plan on seeing the belt zippers in place to prevent them from slipping during a ride. Biggest issue is that the chest plate is too short and leaves my bottom ribs exposed. Not happy with that, but for the price point I'll deal with it. Certainly is comfortable under the jersey but itchy if you don't wear a base layer under it.
I have never been disappointed by a EVS product and nothing has changed. This is a great brace and gives me amazing comfortable protection. I would recommend this this brace to any friend looking for knee protection.
Brace is a great temporary solution to play without the pain. The fit wasn't too bad. The arm strap is not the greatest and support strap isn't easy to adjust while wearing but all in all it's a great brace and highly recommend.
I love it. It already saved my previously injured shoulder. I bought it larger than my normal size and it fit perfect. It is also comfortable. To hold it you might think its heavy but you don't really know you have it on. I recommend it and will buy another when its time.
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.
