Suit up for the next ride with the latest protective gear from Dainese and know that you will be protected in comfort. The Dainese Rhyolite Vest is breathable and comfortable enough to wear under a t-shirt or jersey. Don't let the comfort fool you into thinking that this is a lightweight in terms of protection. Dainese uses an innovative "Crash Absorb" shape memory retention material (water-repellent elastic-visco nitrile rubber) for maximum protection in the back. The tougher material in the back will protect your back in the event of falling backwards. The front, sides, chest and abdomen of the Dainese Rhyolite receive a more comfortable protective material than in the back. The Dainese Rhyolite sandwiches Pro Shape and Crash Absorb materials to protect the vital areas. Dainese also perforates the material on the Rhyolite for even more comfort.
I got the xxl size and I am 6'3'' and it is too short for me. I was hoping it would work but it is way to short and does not cover enough of my back. I also found it to be uncomfortable and the material could have been softer on the skin. Bottom line for what they are charging it's not worth it unless you have a tiny torso and this vest actually fits you. It would be nice if a company actually made light weight body armor that actually fit taller people.
I got this vest to replace my POC jacket which was too bulky and cumbersome. I wanted something lightweight, comfortable and indiscreet. This fit the bill perfectly. It's fits snuggly like a compression shirt and doesn't look like I'm getting ready to play football. It's cool and easy to move around in. I completely forget I'm actually wearing it. There is some minor rubbing on the shoulders but nothing irritable. And the back protection doesn't quite come down as far as the POC. But, the comfort and maneuverability wins out.
PROS: Maneuverability, Comfortable, Lightweight
CONS: Minor Rubbing On Shoulder, Back Pad A Little Short
