Strengths:    Fairly light. It weighs about 4 pounds. Almost as heavy as my Raceface hardshell protector. Soft armor padding allows for better movement and fit. There is as much protection as I wanted, and not too much that would make me not want to wear the protector. The fabric feels good on the skin and vents very well

Weaknesses:    Just fairly light, I really thought it would be lighter. The weight is only there when you lift it. I might be just my mind as it's hard to imagine a shirt weighing as much just looking at it draped on a chair. The fabric looks like it will tear easy on a crash. I havent crashed it yet, but I already busted a seam just putting it on. The armor itself is covered with the same fabric that touches your skin. I have not doubt that it will tear on the simplest crash. Having been made with so many panels, you'd think they'd use tougher material like cordura on elbows and forearms.

Bottom Line:   
I like wearing it, havent crashed it yet. I think the value is just so so as it looks like the fabric will shred even in a mild crash. Will be wearing inside my jersey to protect the protector.
