Dainese Women's Thorax Pro Chest Protector
Fits Great, Looks Fantastic!
Aside from looking like a warrior-princess in this thing, it fits great and is comfortable. I cannot vouch for it's protection per say, but based on the durability and strength, I have faith that the product would protect when needed.
Upside: the 'form-fitting' and padding is much more comfortable for a lady than the regular 'flat' thorax protector.
Downside: It does not stay in place very well. Works great under a jacket, but the straps do not keep it in place if you want to wear it by itself.

Very rigid, straps confusing.
I recently purchased this protector for adv/touring.
The protector is extremely rigid... more than I was expecting. I was looking for some extra protection, but I'm not so sure it'll be very comfortable for a long trip:(
The other thing is the straps are kind of confusing and not the easiest to use.
I'm sure for the track this protector would be sufficient, but not for road use.
Also, I am a 32C and bought Medium...which I think is a bit big FYI.

part one...initial fit and sizing
i have never written a review on anything before but i am rushing to write this since i couldn't find anything on the web for any chest protection for women. for now this is just initial impression on fit and sizing. i will be at the track this weekend for two days so i can report back after being on the bike and spending most of the two days in it. hoping not to crash test it!
to start...decided at the end of last season that a chest protector was the next piece to add to my trackday gear. researched options for women and sadly there aren't many (read any) choices short of going custom. thank you dainese for addressing this segment of the market. i considered the knox advantage protector...a men's piece really and even the small seems like it would be too big in many ways and not...ummmm...roomy enough in others. more on that piece later...my guy ordered it and i can see if that is in fact the case when it shows up. my suspicion is it wouldn't be appropriate at all.
stats on me: 45v yrs old 5'4" 110-115lbs with an athletic build. been doing track days for about 5 years now and ride about 12 days a season. i run in the intermediate group so decent pace and am on a triumph 675. serious enthusiast i guess so i'm active on the bike hanging off and tucking in. will be wearing this under a spidi womens one piece suit size 42 that has a back protector velcro-ed in place so no shoulder straps to deal with or get in the way of the thorax pro. not to get too personal but it is important for sizing...i am a 36C bra size thanks to some after-market mods...gotta protect the investment!
i ordered both the small and medium from revzilla in order to try them on side by side. both fit but the medium feels and seems slightly better...the side rib coverage is slightly bigger too so that iced the decision for me. the side coverage is also why i opted for the pro over the regular thorax. the straps are nice too in order to hold the protector in place. i kept them on the looser side when putting the my suit on and that allows me to postion the protector as i zipped up. comfort seems great and the suit fit nicely over to hold the protector in place. while moving around here at home and bending into riding position the protector didn't ride up. have to be on the bike to make a full evaluation on that.
the quality and construction seems to be excellent. under the hard shell protection there is a nice mesh padded layer with air-pocket between the padding and the hardshell. i really thought i would feel crushed by any chest protector and this is definitely not the case with the dainese. all the edges are wrapped and covered with a nice material so nothing feels like it would dig in. the best compliment about any gear in my opinion is when you are unaware of it (same is true for my favorite dirt riding protection). besides my leather suit feeling slightly tighter and the fact that this is a new piece i'd say this will be true about the thorax pro. does make your boobs look a bit pointy under your leathers but hey some may like that!
i rated the product good for everything...i may adjust those and i'll do a follow-up after the weekend and try to post up pics. all in all seems to be a great product when there are few choices for women to even consider.
