Strengths:    comfortable, fits like a glove, CE protection rated, Neck brace compatible

Weaknesses:    Can be warm, 2 newer cooler models out now.

Bottom Line:   
This product has been superseded by the 3d Airfit for a couple of years now, so on sale everywhere for $129 and with discount coupons can be found for just over $100. Its is designed for / and I've only worn it for Moto. You are supposed to wear it against your skin with a jersey over it, so Bing's complaint about abrasion resistance is a bit off the mark. Compared to traditional hard plastic armor this blow them away in terms or comfort and range of motion. This is a bit warm, in 85 degree weather with a mesh moto jersey over it and working the bike hard I have never over heated. Like I said only worn for moto so not sure if you will stay as cool at lower speeds. The level of warmth is like Underarmor or similar heat out type base layer. Plan on using it in the bike park this summer, so I will see if I overheat or not.

They make a 3d Lite version of this that sounds perfect for mtbing and even the 3d Airfit sounds better because it supposed to be cooler but this is a lot cheaper

I gave it 5 value because for the price w/ CE rating it has and the comfort level not sure it can be beat but it does run warm so not sure how good this is for mtb, for moto its definitely a 4 chili overall

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.
