Strength:

REALLY comfortable, protection where is counts for me (back), breathable. LIGHT, manuverable

Weakness:

Doesn't have as much protection as some other brands (dainese, thor impact rig SE)- lacks around the sides, shoulderblade and collarbone. Doesn't have detachable fore-arms like the rockgardn, but I think it's actually more comfortable.

If you're looking for medium/light protection for fast/tech riding where manuverablility and comfort are a concern, then this is a must. If you're going for big drops and still want to stay reletively safe, then get something more heavy duty. In my experience, rockgardn, dainese (if you have the $), and the thor impact rig SE all have great protection for more extreme stuff. I do more technical singletrack stuff as opposed to drops, so this worked great for me. This is the BEST for my type of riding.

Similar Products Used: tried out dainese, thor impact rig and rockgardn - Tried on 661 - pretty weak protection wise; didn't ever use.

Strength:

Cheaper than Dainese and others. Available. Fits my skinny arms well.

Weakness:

Zipper pulled out after 2 rides. Fixed under warrenty, but that took most of the summer.
Hot, but seems less hot than some others I have tried on but not acutally ridden with.

Good price. Quality issues.
