Nice armor. Very well made. It fits well and very breathable. It's much cooler than you would think. The only down side is that it's heavy and if you have really big arms, you might have trouble fitting them through the sleeves.

how do you put it on?
A shopper on Jan 2, 2017
BEST ANSWER: It's fairly straight forward. I typically undo the velcro waist belt, unclip one of the two buckles that holds the rib plate in place, and undo the zipper on the same side and slide the whole thing on over my head. If you've got the matching neck brace and wear a jersey over the top, getting the red straps over the collar bone onto the neck brace can be difficult, but it's doable. whole process is only a minute or two.

Taking it off is usually a bit harder, as by the time I'm done riding I'm sweaty and stuck to the inside of the thing like a melted chocolate bar to it's wrapper. I'll actually take the sleeves off first with the zipper around the bicep as pulling the rest off can take a bit of effort, with the arms being the most difficult part to slide off.

I don't always rezip the side zippers, depending on how hot it is when I am riding and sometimes will remove the sleeves entirely and use a smaller more open arm guard to make the whole thing less hot. These suits are hot, but it's all worth it on that once every hundred DH runs where you eat it epic hard and the suit keeps you out of the hospital.
Would this be suitable to wear while I take a 1500 mile motorcycle trip and plan on riding through the mountain passes mostly?
