Forcefield Airo Vest

The Forcefield Airo Vest has been designed in a way that the rider does not know they are wearing armor. The Airo Vest incorporates a highly flexible, breathable and removable CE approved chest (L1) and back (L2) protection in an ergonomically designed technical fleece vest. The vest’s shell is constructed of lightweight, breathable and comfortable Coolmax breathable fabric. Featuring hand pockets on the front and flat lock stitching throughout the Airo will provide years of comfortable service.

Features:

  • CE approved to EN1621 – 2 (Level 2) the back protector molds to the body’s natural shape when in use creating a supremely comfortable fit
  • Held firmly in place with the aid of a separate height adjustable waist strap the vest is secured at the front with a high quality zipper
  • Zipper features a “garage” to enclose the zip at its top point and stop irritation
  • Full gripper elastic is added at the hem to stop the vest lifting
  • Low profile back protector is formed from M15 Armor, a specialized polymer from Nitrile rubber that has been optimized to achieve low weight, flexibility and Repeat Performance Technology (RPT)
  • RPT ensures protection is given even after multiple impacts and can be easily removed allowing for easy care (washing) of the fleece vest

Low profile protection
I bought this back and chest protector for 2 reasons. I needed a low profile back protector for my 1 piece leather race suit, and I also wanted something to wear under my snowboarding jacket for protection since I've had a back injury in the past. I also wanted some chest protection, but I didn't want the overall package to be too big or bulky.

I also tried the Forcefield Extreme Harness Flite, and although that definitely has far more complete protection, it was far too bulky to fit under my leather suit and even a little too bulky to be comfortable snowboarding in my opinion. It was cumbersome to put on by myself, so I ordered the Airo vest instead.

The vest is generally a good piece of equipment, and the best part about is how easy it is to put on. It's just like a normal vest with a kidney belt for tightening it up, and takes 30 seconds total to get ready. It's low profile enough to fit under the leather suit, and it adds little bulk under the snow jacket as well. The only real "complaint" I have is that in my size small vest, the back protector is very, very small around the lower part of my spine. I imagine it covers "enough" of my spine, but it has nowhere near the complete protection as really any of the other Forcefield products I've seen.

The only reason I consider this enough to be a complaint is that it's priced very high for the small and simple back protection and relatively minimal chest protection. The jersey piece it fits into is nice, but I think overall this would be a much better value around the $200 mark. At $274, it's price/value ratio is not quite what I would expect. It's definitely a good piece of gear, but I would want the back protection to be a bit wider at the bottom and would appreciate a little more accessible price point considering the Flite harness is $25 more and comes with a LOT more protection and material. If you can look past those two factors, I would say it's still a good purchase and more than anything it's very comfortable.

The fit is great.
Have not used this product in the field yet. The fit is good, it feels like it is not going to be too hot in the summer. The chest protection could have gone lower. Would not have purchased this if I had known it has a "European" zipper. I think Revzilla should have advertised this. Overall it is a good product and I guess I can get used to wearing a item with a "female" zipper. The product sold is not responsible for this oversight. Would have returned it, but customer service said it was in fact the "male" version.

Awesome with One Quirk
I love everything about the vest. Obviously, I don't want to crash to test it, but I feel much safer wearing it under my jacket. I bought it because my jacket had no chest armor and a foam back pad. Now I have CE chest and back armor. It's very comfortable. The one minor drawback it the zipper is difficult to operate. I sometimes have to ask my coworkers to help me zip up. It is the worst zipper on anything I've owned. It it brakes, I will have it replaced with something heavier duty.

Couldn't pass up the price
Been shopping for sometime for a track vest and in my indecisiveness I ordered both this Forcefield and the Knox Track Vest. I ended up keeping the Forcefield and sending the Knox back (thank you Revzilla for making returns painless).
I did not like the way the Knox fit with the kidney belts only attaching to the side and not to eachother like a true belt would. This makes my dad bod belly stick out even more. Mainly I didn't like how hard it made getting my 1-piece racesuite on/off.
I did however like how it fit more like a vest where the Forcefield fits like a shirt w/o sleaves. Forcefield has a couple pockets which is nice incase you need a place to stash a ipod, or drivers license/ insurance card. Forcefield is high quality throughout. This backprotector would be awesome in my snowboard days but on a bike it doesn't flow air as well as I like and I don't like the high collar.
Non-the less I could not passup the closeout pricing and with the protection qualities of Forcefield I know I'm safe.
Unfortunately Alpinestar just came out with their redefine track vest 2, that is the one I should have purchased.

I am looking for something to wear in warm weather. What is the vest made out of? Can it be worn during hot days?
A shopper on Jun 11, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Get the new AStar vest. I live in SoCal and do hot trackdays, this vest doesn't flow as well as I would like. The new AStar looks to flow better.
I'm 6Ft - 2" tall & 190 pounds & 34" waist. What size of Airo Vest should I order?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2014
The forecfield sizing guide is not clear on the airo vest. It only seems to use the torso length as the sizing requirement.
I'm 6ft, 42" chest, 200 lbs, do you just use the torso length and not chest size for this?
A shopper on Aug 13, 2014
The picture makes it look like there's also some chest protection in this vest, but the product description doesn't mention it. Is this ONLY another option for a person wanting Forcefield spine protection, or are there also chest pads?
A shopper on Nov 5, 2014
BEST ANSWER: There are CE rated chest pads as well, the primary reason I purchased it. No complaints from my side on the item.
