Strengths:    Weight, protection, air flow, price

Weaknesses:    It seems a little short in the back

Bottom Line:   
The few times I have worn this protector(usually when temps are hovering around 90) it has performed just fine. It does allow noticable airflow around the torso when riding, which is welcomed relief considering the full face sauna you're wearing on your head. I've had the opportunity to smack a few trees while wearing the protector and it has held up very well (Why do the trees grow so close together up here in the Northeast?). Anyway, I prefer the pressure suit for racing, since I feel affords better overall protection than the Defender. But for general play in the woods the sixsixone defender chest protector is more than adequate.

Strengths:    Light...

Weaknesses:    None so far...

Bottom Line:   
The product already saves me from hard impacts during our weekend downhill escapades. I highly recommend this product to downhillers who are looking for a body armour at a cheap price but big in performance.
