Dainese Thorax Pro Chest Protector
Great chest protector
This is exactly what I was looking for in a chest protector. It has great airflow and seems to have great protection, according to the manufacturer CE level 2. Very easy to put on and after riding a couple of minutes it really isn't noticeable. I'm 5'9'' and the medium fit very well.

Lightweight chest armor
I especially like the extra rib protection that comes with this protector. I tried this on today I am satisfied with the fit. I ordered the large, I am about 5'9 185lbs. this fit just right.

Can you go wrong with Dainese
You can buy this cheaper on Ebay, but then again....how important is your chest during impact? Pay full price and ride with confidence. It's very lightweight and worth every penny you spend. You wear it under your jacket and could even wear it under your shirt with no issue. Think of it as your man bra!

Can never have enough protection
You can never go with anything that says Dainese on it.
I have a check 38, 5'9". I wear a Dainese Alien Perforated Jacket in size 46. It has a upgraded back protector as well.
I got this in size small, it fits very well. Under the jacket its a tight fit with a polo shirt, fleece and back protector. Its doable thanks to the Alien jacket. Its a snug fit with everything and that what you want.
You can never have enough protection, don't be a SQUID

Nice product, good investment for added safety for your chest
I was looking for chest protector for some time and I found this. It was a great buy. This fits nice and I do not notice much it is there while I am riding. The only time I notice is when I reach the front pocket of my jacket but not an issue. Rode a few times under hot CA weather and I might have felt tad more heat in the chest area but not really much to notice. I am 5' 7", 140lbs and size small fits perfect. Great investment for more safety.

Great product, just what you'd expect from Dainese.
I originally bought just the disc protector, like the GP riders wear, but it wouldn't stay in place when I wore it under my jacket (instead of my race suit) on shorter rides so I returned it and bought this one. Great move! I got a little extra protection for my ribs, and the adjustable elastic cross-back harness keeps it in place perfectly without any kind of binding or discomfort, plus I don't have to find a place to set it down when I stop or unzip my jacket. The fit is perfect, the ventilation is great, and I don't even notice the harness or extra padding around my ribs. I'm 5'10" and 190lbs and the medium fits better than the large on me, little more room to lean off the bike and move around, and like I said, I hardly notice it's there. The price seems reasonable, at least when compared to other chest protectors, and if you need it in a crash it becomes priceless of course. For my money it was worth it. Great product!

This will protect your ribs
It makes you look a lot fatter/bigger than you are, but it's worth it. I've had my handlebars hit me in the side and this chest protector prevented any injury - just slight bruising. And you won't realize you're wearing it. It's made well and is easy to put on. Might not be the coolest looking thing, but most protective gear isn't.
