Strengths:    Does its job well

Weaknesses:    sizing

Bottom Line:   
I'ven only worn it for one race/practice day but it is much more comfortable than the Rockgarden. Not restrictive at all. Warm, but what armor isn't? I'm in between sizing , 42" chest but went with the small and it fits fine; large would be way too big.

Strengths:    Lightweight, well padded, easy to put on, not too expensive

Weaknesses:    Not enough shoulder protection, bottom Velcro strap slides up

Bottom Line:   
For the money it's hard to beat. I believe that this top combined with some elbow guards would protect just as much as the full pressure tops if not more. I wish there was better shoulder protection but hopefully I won't need it again lol. 661 is a great company that has a respectable product at a good price. Check it out, if you don't like it return the thing.

Strengths:    Low profile
Mobility while wearing it


Weaknesses:    None, really.

Bottom Line:   
So heres the deal. I hate wearing protection when it comes to DHing. I've dropped the elbow gaurds and have started to drop the knee gaurds. But the Core saver is just amazing. I can wear it under a regular shirt, and it doesn't limit my mobility at all. I seriously forget that I'm wearing it and nw I dont mind that my parents make me wear it. As for vents, I cant say. I've only ridden overcast/ rainy days so far.

Strengths:    great fit. Not too bulky. Good protection for what it is.

Weaknesses:    not bulletproof j/k

Bottom Line:   
If you need a little something that isn't as bulky as a motocross chest protector then it is perfect. It helps to protect everything in that area that I hate hurting.

this is a great bit of armour for someone who just wants to slip something on before they try to clear stairs or do a narly track. ps the price i put down is in Australian dollars, not US as it asks me to.

Date Reviewed: July 19, 2007

Strengths:    Light weight, doesn't feel bulky, stays in place very well.

Weaknesses:    The velcro strap in the front could have been designed better.

Bottom Line:   
I am new to body armor and I find this one to be a good start. It fits well, stays in place, and you barely notice it when you have it on. I would recommend something with more protection for extreme downhill but is excellent for moderate freeride. The first day I wore it I was at Mont St-Anne where I did an endo going at a good speed and my chest landed first thing on a rock. It knocked the wind out of me really good, but walked away without a scratch or cracked ribs. I was very please with its performance.

Date Reviewed: January 17, 2007

Strengths:    Very light weight, well ventilated, awesome spine protection and lower internal organs

Weaknesses:    Velcro strap rides down onto my stomach and is sometimes uncomfortable

Bottom Line:   
I have owned quite a few pressure tops in my day and most seem to sit on a hanger and collect dust. I'm definately one of the guys out there that likes to wear a t-shirt with no upper body pads most of the time. This is one pressure top that I don't mind. It's light weight and has pretty good pretection for what it is. It's not as burly as a full on pressure top with shoulders and elbows but works great for all but the gnarliest stuff. I would say that this top is perfect for sessions in the Bone Yard or Fast laps on A-line style trails. It comes up a little short when you get into the really gnarly stuff but does provide top knotch protection for your spine, kidneys and spleen.

Converting a full flak jacket to more of a core saver type vest.

Has anyone ditched the HUGE shoulder pads on the Rockgardn flak jacket? I'm really tempted to do this because the shoulder pads are really the only thing that REALLY limits mobility for me. With the new EVS neck brace I got, having all the mobility available is key. I don't like the 661 core saver ... Read More »
