                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from I'm 6' 1" and 197 lbs enduro rider on mostly single track and the L/XL fits perfectly, is comfortable and not too hot. Has great protection also. When I purchased it a month ago i thought it was too heavy and would be too hot but I was surprised. Started riding and completely forgot I was even wearing it. I would recommend this product. Cheers.

                  Rated 3 out of 5 by from Great protection but HOT Have used this system for a year now and the L/XL size fits me very well (5'10 195lbs). I fall a lot and run into many trees and the chest and elbow protectors have definitely saved me from some damage. My only complaint is that I find it very hot and sweaty when doing single track. It is fine at higher speeds on two-track or roads though.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from worth money This costs more than other products but is well worth it. Torso and arms are well protected, its comfortable to wear, relatively good airflow. The forearms are a little snug which makes it a little difficult to get on. But once its on its great and everything stays in place.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from very protective Excellent protection all around. fits and feels comfy. Not as hot as some reviews said it would be stitching could be stronger. You have to put your arms in first then your head or you might rip the stitches a bit.

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent protection. Overheating I love this, it feel very protected and I can still be very agile. I overheated the first two times I wore this. I need to make adjustment in my Hearn to avoid overheating with this new suit (light socks, water to pour on me, etc). Worth it

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Perfect value 2xl, fits like a 4xl! I can't comment on the mid to smaller sizes... but if you are both tall and large (ex. 6'4"/270 lbs/60" chest), you will be glad to find this as it's unusually generous in its sizing! Recommended!

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from Can't put a price on safety I bought this for mountain sledding for overall protection and bracing for my bad back. Much more comfortable than I expected, I forget that it is on. It takes a little time to wiggle into but once it is on you're good to go. The integrated kidney belt is awesome for my lower back pain and the chest protector has saved me multiple times. Good stuff from Leatt!

                  Rated 5 out of 5 by from The best protection money can buy in this range This suit is not as bulky as people think it could be. It fit quite nicely under a jersey and a hoodie. Slightly more voluminous than some smaller suits, but I definitely feel safer wearing this than anything cheaper than this. Not hot at all when cruising on the highway or worn for trail riding. Stitching could be a little better and I do feel like the zippers connecting the detachable elbow protectors to the main piece won't last as long as I'd like them to.

                  Questions

                  Can you wear it under a jersey or jacket, or is it too bulky?

                  Asked by: Dakariano
                  This of course depends on your body size. But as an average 5'11 180 lbs man I did not find this suit to be bulky at all under a loose-fitting hoodie.

                  Hi  I am 5’10” chest 39’  Weight 145-50 lbs  Can you suggest size please 

                  Asked by: Carmel
                  I found it fits tight especially in the forearms so I ended up going up a size from what Leatt suggested.

                  Is this an over head protector? Or does it have a zipper? Just wondering for ease of putting on and taking off. Thank you.

                  Asked by: Magnum
                  Seems designed to be to used with the zipper. After a few tries, I was able to put this on in under a minute. Well worth it.
