The Sette Impact Protective Suit w/ Zip-Off Sleeves was constructed using an open mesh design that is intended to give a rider superior comfort and mobility. The vented high density foam under layer provides protection, and maintains ventilation, while a removable articulated spine protector, with multi strap kidney belt keeps everything tight and secure. Extra protection is gained with strategically placed, shoulder cups and chest plates that are injection molded for extra durability.

Strengths: Cheap! Nearest competitor is rockgardn's body armor at $150. Lighter than competitors. Zip off sleaves are cool, fairly breathable. Spine protection is a godsend.
Weaknesses: Listen in the wrong section. This is protective gear, not a jersey....But more than that, the jacket does not have as much hard armor as some competitors, but thats just fine becuase I use it for XC not downhill.
Cheap, but keep that in mind when you order it. Its no flackjacked or Fox launch suit, it does get the job done however.
