Hooray! After a short wait, (four days) my upper body armor is in!

At first glance it looks and feels very sturdy although the arm adjustment straps need some work.

Overall it feels very secure with a nice back protector, shoulder pads, elbow pads and a chest protector (that feels good too).

I ride home with it tonight and I'll post pics later :)

Well, I wore it on the ride home and it was very comfortable and I felt very protected.

I wear a normal non-riding leather jacket over it because I'm on a budget. The jacket fit well over it except for the top of the back protector which was sorta poking the top of the jacket.

So far so good though. Now I need boots and pants

I like it. I wear it under my older stretched leather jacket with the armor taken out for weekend jaunts. I wear the newer tight fitting jacket without it for commuting. it's very versatile equipment, you can wear just the back protector if you like it zips out.

The armor fits pretty snugly but not too tightly. The only thing I wish was the arm/elbow guards could be more tightly fastened. I think it's because I'm a so skinny.

The chest protector is much thicker and harder than I thought.

The back protector looks and feels great. :) Hope you folks like it and thanks Greenzed for letting me know the back comes out. That's good

thanks taurus, sorry I forgot last night!

it's size medium, I'm 5'7" about 150 lbs.

It does fit almost like a glove, and you can tighten the arm section. :D

Cool.. I'm the same height except I've got about 20 pounds of fat extra... a medium should do me just fine.

You plan to wear a jacket or anything else on top of the armor?

Looks like better adjustment capability than my JR Alter Ego with the 2 snap button positions on the arms.

Anyway, now that you have it, here's hoping you don't ever put it to the test.
