Rockgardn Flak Jacket

The new Flak Jacket is Rockgards most revolutionary design yet, and its all about options and a tailored fit. The design breaks down the Flak Jacket into two distinct component parts, the Flak Vest and Flak Base.
  • The Flak Vest contains all the core torso protection for the chest, sides and back. Adjustable shoulder straps allow you to position the back and chest to your exact body shape. Available in 3 sizes, defined by the length of the back protector, you can choose the 5, 6 or 7 segment sizes to best suit your torso length. The 6 and 7 segment versions include a zip-off/zip-on kidney belt for extra support. Chest protector is made from a combination of ventilated foam, ABS plastic, and thermo-plastic rubber to allow ample protection with unrestricted range of motion and includes a tube guide for the optional Rockgardn Hydropack.
  • Included harness allows the chest protector to be detached and the harness run in its place, for hot days or rides where the chest protection is deemed unnecessary.
  • Leatt and Alpinestars neck brace compatible.
  • The Flak Base hosts the shoulder, bicep, elbow and forearm guard protection, as well as shoulder adjustment straps. "Cheater" straps between the bicep and elbow pads allow for more exact positioning of the elbow/forearm guard protection. Thumb stirrups keep the elbow/forearm guard section from sliding up in a fall. Upper chest features a cut-in of Spandex mesh for added comfort when worn directly against the skin. Available in two sizes, S/M and L/XL.
  • Lightweight, and incredibly easy to get on and off.
Sizing Help

The Flak Jacket consists of two distinct parts, the Flak Base and Flak Vest. Heres how to choose your personal sizing:
Flak Base fitment:
The dividing line between S/M and X/L is a chest measurement of about 41". Measure your chest by using a tailors tape (the soft kind), going under your armpits and over your pec muscles. If you dont have a tailors tape, use a piece of string, then measure the string length with a conventional measuring tape.
If youre at the boundry between sizes, look at your basic body shape. If you have a very "V" shaped torso, go for the S/M. If you have a straight torso, and particularly if you have wide shoulders and/or big biceps, go with L/XL.
Flak Vest fitment:
Flak Vest sizing is based on the number of segments used in the back protector:

    * 5 Segment: Total length of 19".
    * 6 Segment: Total length of 22".
    * 7 Segment: Total length of 25".

Because of the length, the side straps act to support the kidneys on the 5 Segment version. The 6 and 7 Segment versions feature a kidney belt that can be zipped on and off.
Selecting the correct size depends on torso length and rider preference. As a rule of thumb, riders under 59" are best suited in the 5 Segment. Rider 510" to about 61" should go 6 Segment, and riders at or over 62" should go with the 7 Segment. To further vailidate your sizing, have a friend measure you from the base of your neck to the top of your pants, and compare it to the chart above. For proper fitment, the bottom of the back protector should overlap the top of your pants by about 1-2.5". The back protector is connnected to the chest protector with adjustable straps, allowing for fine-tuning your personal fit.
Riders who like to run their jersey tucked into their pants, and want the Flak Vest to fit more in the mode of a conventional motocross roost guard, should consider selecting a size one segment shorter than normal.

Rockgardn Stuff works great and looks great, I would like an adjust system a littlebit simplier and chest protection panel a littebit though! another good thing about this jacket is the 2 pieces system, you can wear it as a jacket or just the vest.

Mostly improved
Delivery as always was great the only problem was that the spine protector I ordered was the 6 plate one and I got the 7 plate one. It arrived the day before I went on a trip so I didn't send it back. Fit was ok so I will keep it but I think I would have enjoyed the 6 plate one better.

PROS: Easy On Easy Off, Comfortable Fit, Highly Adjustable, Good Ventilation, Tough

CONS: Chest Plate

BEST USES: Downhill, Freeride, Mountain Biking

Good, but Broken
the armor looked great. I have a friend that owns a set and he says that it works were well and is comfortable to ride in. The only problem was that it showed up broken. In of the buckles on the chest piece would clip in but it would not say together under even a small pull. Also one of the straps that held on the elbow pads was not attached. On to of these it cost me around $20 to send it back. Overall, I'm am going to buy it but not from Jensen, I'm gonna pay the full price and get it from [@].

PROS: Everything was included, Looked great, Fit well

CONS: Expensive to Return, Arrived broken
