Eddie M: Great chest protector from Dainese to go with my Dainese Super Speed leather and textile jackets.Mar 13, 2014
C U: initially tried the the alpinestars track jacket for back and chest protector...the back protecton on that is flimsy and the chest is soft and although the coverage is broader, just from my own inspection, you would definitely feel impacts more and this protector is more designed to protect you where you would get hit more often particularly the thorax/sternum area..just makes sense..will try and see how it goesFeb 22, 2014
Thomas J: To protect my chest... why else would I purchase a chest protector?Dec 30, 2013
Zach V: For added chest safety while riding.Dec 2, 2013
Lawrence K:The padding at the edge is about 1/4" The moulded plastic area is about 1//2". I have a medium. My chest is 42". The chest protector is a little bit flat for my chest . I hold it on with the main strap of the Dainese back protector and then a dirt track leather jacket. I also have Dainese elbow and knee guards. They all work very well. The only change I made was to replace the middle strap of the knee guard with a leather strap with D rings. The elastic strap did not hold it up on my leg. I have hit the grourd a few times, no injury at all.
William W C:I would estimate the thickness to be between 3/4" to 1.0" thick. It is very well ventilated with many openings. It is also very lightweight; and once fitted properly inside your Dainese jacket, you will forget that it's there.May 23, 2014
dan p:Yes the protector will fit. If your wearing a 54 you are in shape but probably not a giant person. The large is big and will fit people wearing 56-60 + size jacket. I have a muscular chest and shoulders and wear a sizes 65 jacket, but I purchased a size medium, but I tried on a large at a local store and it was very wide and dug into my shoulders when I was in the riding position. But get what ever size you want!Mar 30, 2014
hq227:Yes it is a single plate and sits partially in the pocket for it (there is only a pocket for it on one side and the other side sits free, but is secure when you zip up the jacket). So you would only need to buy one of these.Apr 6, 2012
MICHAEL M:Don't know about its certification but how would you certify a chest protector. It's not like the company will guarantee your complete safety with this. Yes it fits inside a Ducati jacket and a Ducati race suit. I would imagine anyone traveling at hi speeds on a race track would have this and more. You simply can never be safe enough. It's a good product rest assured I have bought a lot of Dainese products and the quality is just superb. Nov 22, 2013
Lawrence K:I don't know about the pocket in that jacket. I use this chest protector and just hold it in place with the large wrap around on the dainese back protector. It's all under heavy leather jacket. LarryNov 25, 2013
