Strengths:    Minimalist protection for side of shoulder
Excellent breathability

Weaknesses:    Hard to take off
Near useless chest protection

Bottom Line:   
I got this as a lightweight alternative to my 661 Evo Pressure Suit for XC days, mainly for the shoulder armor. I already have elbow and forearm that I planned to pair with this.

I love taking risks and that typically involves a few tumbles, especially with high speed corners and tire washouts. In those tumbles, I didn't want to bash up my shoulder, and this has good enough padding to execute a roll on one side and simply get up and get back on the bike without bothered to check your injuries.

Awesome value and awesome product.

I just find it a pain in the ass to take off by myself. I take it off from the waist up and try to flip it inside out above my head, but the waist only goes up as far as the shoulder pads. From there, you need to stretch to reach it from above, with enough grip and force to get it to flip the shoulder pads too. I haven't yet found the trick... maybe I should try to pre-flip the shoulder pads...

Strengths:    Light, wicks well. decent protection.

Weaknesses:    Hard to get on & off. It's really tight.

Bottom Line:   
I have the short sleeve subgear compression shirt. it's stupid tight. It wicks sweat well enough & dosn't stink. The shoulder pads will protect you good enough for most trail riding. I grazed a tree with mine & it didn't leave a mark. I also taken a couple of tumbles, that would have scratched my shoulder up, no marks. Once you get it on, you don't notice it. I wear mine for every ride now. It's not downhill tough but, it's plenty good for trail riding.

661 sub gear??

Anyone have experience with sub gear? I would like to try the short sleeve for a bit of shoulder protection without restricting mobility and comfort. I would use it for lift service DH as well as some AM stuff from time to time.Read More »
