Strengths:    Cheaper than Dainese and others. Available. Fits my skinny arms well.

Weaknesses:    Zipper pulled out after 2 rides. Fixed under warrenty, but that took most of the summer.
Hot, but seems less hot than some others I have tried on but not acutally ridden with.


Bottom Line:   
Good price. Quality issues.

Date Reviewed: July 17, 2007

Strengths:    REALLY comfortable, protection where is counts for me (back), breathable. LIGHT, manuverable

Weaknesses:    Doesn't have as much protection as some other brands (dainese, thor impact rig SE)- lacks around the sides, shoulderblade and collarbone. Doesn't have detachable fore-arms like the rockgardn, but I think it's actually more comfortable.

Bottom Line:   
If you're looking for medium/light protection for fast/tech riding where manuverablility and comfort are a concern, then this is a must. If you're going for big drops and still want to stay reletively safe, then get something more heavy duty. In my experience, rockgardn, dainese (if you have the $), and the thor impact rig SE all have great protection for more extreme stuff. I do more technical singletrack stuff as opposed to drops, so this worked great for me. This is the BEST for my type of riding.
