Forcefield Extreme Harness Flite 4.8 5 24 24
Needed protection I could easily switch between different gear. I recently had open-heart surgery, and while I had a backprotector I could remove from the various pockets of jackets and suits, it obviously didn't protect my chest, and was a minor pain to switch from garmet to garmet. The Forcefield Extreme Harness Flite remedied all of my issues in one fell swoop...this is what I should have done to start with. Now I have much better track and street protection, I never even have to remove it when stopped for lunch. It's hard to overemphasize how comfortable it is...it conforms to your body. While this may be rare, I didn't have to adjust any straps, it fit me perfectly out of the box. It does however have a wide range of adjustment. I spoke with a Revzilla rep who helped select the proper size, though the sizing chart ended up being right on the money. The only two minor cons are: it does restrict airflow a lilttle, but not a huge amount. I haven't ridden with it on a 100° day yet, but I don't expect it to be a big problem. The only other issue is coughing up $300. That being said, for me, it's $300 well spent and I highly recommend this product to anyone who wants both front and rear CE torso protection.

Fantastic product I bought the Forcefield Extreme Harness Flite after much online research, specifically for a long trip on my dual sport. After 8,100 miles in two months, I am very satisfied with this product. The initial setup to make it fit my 6'4" 205lbs body was very simple and easy. At first it feels like the harness might be very uncomfortable, but this is not the case. I wear the harness over a wicking under shirt and under an outer wicking long sleeve shirt and my dual sport outer jacket. The fit is surprisingly comfortable. I had no chaffing or rubbing or discomfort in over 8,000 miles. Breathability is excellent. The harness actually helped cool me off in that if I bend my back forward a little, it creates a gap between my body and the harness that lets air get to places it normally would not. But even sitting in my normal position, the airflow was excellent. I rode in temperatures ranging from 27F in Keystone SD to 112F in Page AZ, and the harness was totally comfortable. I fell on Ophir Pass CO onto hard, sharp rock. I struck the ground flat on my back. My dual sport jacket has a thin back protector. The outer material of the jacket had several small perforations and sharp marks where the rock made contact, right along my spine. I never felt a thing through the harness. Without a doubt those rocks would have hurt me had I not been wearing the harness. Another great benefit is that built in kidney belt. It's not a real kidney belt, but it performs the function of one pretty well. This is probably one of the best purchases I have made for riding. I would buy this harness again, and I would recommend this product to anyone riding a motorcycle, with on or off road. It really is a superb product. November 17, 2014
Near Perfect Under Jacket Armor I've put about 500 miles on this armor piece now and can say that it offers great protection while greatly sacrificing comfort. Depending on your priorities, this could be the perfect buy for you or a one wear then return. This armor has little to no air flow and can get a little tight in the stomach and shoulders during a long ride. However, protection trumps comfort in my book making this a must buy product. Pros: wide area of protection, option to upgrade to sleeve armor (just get a jacket with snug shoulder & elbow armor), easy on/off, can adjust to nearly any size Cons: little to no air flow (your shirt will have a sweat outline around this piece), can get a little tight on long rides (but not too bad), takes a while to initially set up (not that big of a deal) 4 stars mainly due to the lack of comfort but can hardly beat this level of protection August 12, 2014
Gladiator good looks Love this product. Feels like a gladiator riding on my 1200 GS. This product fits and wrap around my body well, and it's lightweight. It's a little challenging to fit in the beginning fiddling though all the straps but once you set it, it's all good. I bought this to train on the dirt trails and the protection from forcefield will certainly increase my confidence. July 26, 2014
Excellent protection fit and finish I really love this product, it makes protection simple and interchangeable with jackets of many brands.. This is an indispensable piece of gear. December 23, 2013
Excellent quality, great design and flexible fit The quality of the Forcefield harness is excellent. It takes a few minutes to adjust all the velco tabs but that only needs to be done once. The comfort under a jacket is great and as a bonus the harness provides a good bit of back and kidney support. I've not had any spills yet so I can't comment on the protection but the thought in the design shows that the harness will stay in place during a crash. October 28, 2013
Won't leave the house without it I was getting back protectors with jackets and now I have a great back and chest protector that can go under any jacket. I will not leave my house with out anymore. It's very comfortable, airflow is good, but not great in summer days when it's 90+ between 70-85 is very good and below 70 is great to about 60. I think that during colder days between 45-60 it will actually keep you warmer which is great. Features are great you can adjust as needed including shoulders once on the bike you won't notice it's on. Best back & chest protector on the market that can be used independent of jackets. Get it you won't be disappointed. August 16, 2013
Excellent when setup properly I use this vest for daily riding and it is very comfortable even in the summer. However, you must initially set up the straps perfectly (snug rib adjustment, relaxed lumbar, relaxed shoulder strap). If you set it up this way, when you ride you get a pocket of air when it billows out, making it very nice in the summer. I bought it to use under my leathers and also use it for off-road purposes and it fit the bill. It can be used for track riding as well, but I really think something more form fitting and lower profile in the shoulders (as other have said, it has thick shoulder straps) like Forcefield's Pro Shirt is the way to go. As for fit both the small and medium fit me pretty well, the major difference is the strap lengths. I went with a small because I have a slim build. It looks pretty cool standalone, but obviously wear an abrasion piece over it! August 12, 2013

Curtis S: Hi,

I would say MD. I am 6' 205 with 45" chest. The large fits me well with much adjustment. It may be to big for you. I would call Revzilla. The gear geeks know their stuff. They will be better at guiding your decision. Good luck

Jang K: I'm 5'11'', 170 lbs, 40" chest. This page suggested a MD and it fits well with plenty of coverage. I was concerned that, with 40" on the lower end of the MD range (40" to 44"), I may run out of velcro when snugging it up, if that makes sense. No issues at all. There was a review from someone that tried on both the MD and LG and went with the MD because there was just a bit too much coverage with the LG. May be worth your time flipping through them again. Either way, exchanges should be pretty painless at RevZilla. Mar 9, 2014

Maurice H: I would get the Medium. I have a 36 inch chest, 5'9" tall, 155 pounds. The medium was too large for my size - I had overlap at the velcro connections. Even with the large fit, I did not have full coverage to my tailbone. Mar 9, 2014

Matthew V asked: I have Dainese pants and jacket that mate with a 360 zipper. The waist in both pairs df pants that I own are pretty snug already and I'm concerned that I would not be able to zip up and snap my pants while wearing this protector since it looks like the back piece extends below the waistline.

How bulky is the protector at or below the waistline? Anyone have problems putting on their pants with this product?

Apr 10, 2014

Cottar M: Can't speak to the fit inside a Dainese jacket. However the fit is in my opinion very snug and close fitting while providing really superior protection. I seriously feel like I could go into combat with this vest. Very well engineered compromise between ergonomics and protection without sacrificing a whole lot of either. As far as the fit past the waistline: in front it shouldn't really be an issue because the chest protector doesn't come down too far (the black part in front is the heavy duty Velcro waistband which FYI is very secure and well designed) and in back there is good kidney protection with a small tail area which drops down to protect the tailbone, I think. In conjunction with a normal pair of jeans it just slightly (only by a Couple of inches) protrudes out from under my jacket and over the belt of my jeans. Nothing too major and by itself is really good protection. Unless the pants in question come up really high I can't imagine it would be a hindrance. I would personally be more concerned about the way it fits under a race style jacket simply because those jackets are snug to begin with. I've tried to wear this under my cafe jacket while commuting, for example, and while it feels as rugged as body armor, it is definitely not a super comfortable proposition. I think this vest was designed to be worn under normal street clothes and in that role it is fantastic. Hope this helped. Apr 11, 2014

Owen O: Yes. It was a problem for me. I bought a zip together jacket and pants to cover street riding and some track days. It wasn't the bulk of the protector that was the problem. Every time I bent over the bottom of the back protector would pop up over the belt line then try to push my pants down in the back when I stood back up. The zipper connection had some elasticity so it would try to sag down along with my underwear. Was very annoying. I ended up buying a one piece suit and life is much better. I did not want to give up the tailbone protection at the track so I accommodated the back protector instead of the other way around. I will say in the end I bought another brand entirely. I went with the tryonic feel 3.7. The forcefield seems to have very good protection from punctures but It did not feel like it would help cushion the blow of a highside. It is thick but sits very flat against the body. The tryonic feels like it has more of a crumple zone and would be a bit softer to land on. This is all theory as I have not crash tested either. Hope this helps! Apr 10, 2014

Ron C: If your pants are snug already, with a 360 zipper, I would guess you are going to have a problem. This does extend below the waistline to protect the coccyx bone. To me, that is one of its main attractions, as this area tends to be one of the first to hit the ground in a fall, and it hits repeatedly. I wear it over my pants and under my jacket without a 360 zipper. When I zip my pants to my jacket, I don't wear it. Instead I wear pants with a special pocket for a pad to protect the coccyx area. Some BMW pants, and other brands, come with this pocket. For those that don't, I just sew one in. It's not hard, and you can buy good D30 pads for this purpose. Don't forget the hip protection. This is usually the first area to hit the ground in a fall. I don't call what is a "fall," a "get off." That's just silly. But, in a true "get off," your hips will hit first almost every time.

Rory N: Back piece indeed extends a bit below the waistline, mine about covers my coccyx. I wear jeans and a belt over it sometimes to keep it snug and inplace, almost always pops out and over my pants while riding. usually from crouching over at speed. But if its inside a jacket that zips shut to your pants it might stay in? honestly i want to sell this so i can just get an expensive jacket with a nice backprotector. its quite bulky but does make me feel like i could slide a mile on my back when under my alpine star jacket.

Donald T: From your question your basically asking if the harness fits under a one piece suit. I would say it would not if the suit is tight. I order all my gear in a larger size to accomodate the harness. I ride with this on everyday for the last 12 months and I love it. The back of the harness does cover your tail bone so if your jacket and pants zip together that could be an issue.

The great thing is revzilla will let you return for free so get it and give it a try. It is really great added protection.

Ernest A: I own and luv the forcefield extreme harness flite...it is bulky in most places except the material that covers the tailbone. It's probably half the thickness of the back protector for 3 inches down, and less than that the remainder of the way. I have never had a problem with the pant I use: Dainese Talos Goretex pant size 52 mated with the Jacket size 52. but then again the pants have a reasonable amount of room around the waistline, and I do not use the zipper to mate.

A shopper asked: Do the shoulder straps offer any level of protection or are they too thin to provide protection. Most armor lacks colar bone protection, does this design offer any protection? Feb 6, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Stephan A: My Forcefield Extreme Harness Flite rides just at my collar bone. So does not quite cover my collar bones completely.
The white section that you see outlining the soft armor plate in front makes up the entire front and back of the vest. It is a very thick shock absorbing material and this material appears to stop at the shoulder straps. I say appears because the straps themselves are a very thick and dense shock absorbing material themselves but perhaps lack one layer used in the white mesh main body. However I believe I am correct in saying that most collar bone fractures are caused when your shoulder (from the side) or elbow is slammed into the ground and not a blow directly to the collar bone. Therefore it is the very thick elbow armor in a race suit or high quality street jacket that prevents a lot of broken clavicles.
The Forcefield EHF is the only combination chest/back protector I've tried but I am very satisfied with it.

Aldo W: The shoulder straps just help with securing the harness in place. Properly adjusted it should protect the collar bone but it would depend on your body shape. I have developed shrugs so the harness seats nice and high. If your collar bone is your #1 priority, you should look into apparel made by icon for stunt bikers. Those cover the shoulder and collar bone area better. Hope this helps. Feb 6, 2014
Reply to Aldo Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Andrew D: The shoulder pieces are fairly robust... they are much more than simple straps. Because they consist of several layers of material, they're nearly an inch thick and on the stiff side. However, it is very clear that they are not designed to offer impact protection.The neck opening does not cover the collarbone to any great extent. Feb 6, 2014
Reply to Andrew Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Ron C: I would say the shoulder straps do offer some protection for the collar bones. It is not like a dedicated collar bone protector, but certainly more than just fabric or leather. They are fairly thick straps. That is one reason I bought this product. It is pretty beefy all around. Feb 7, 2014
Reply to Ron Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Chris G: Yes. The straps over the shoulders are the same padded material that forms the underlying framework for the protector. They are about 1/4 inch thick so when the front and back are overlapped you end up with about a 1/2 inch of material over the area between your shoulder and neck. Feb 6, 2014

Gary V: I wear long-sleeved wicking t-shirts under my Harness Flite.

The long-sleeves t-shirts make it easier to get my one-piece track leathers on an off.

Even with the wicking features of the t-shirts there's not much evaporation while wearing the vest. The rubber/plastic material is so dense and provides so much coverage that there simply isn't much airflow while wearing it. Now between sessions when I can take the vest off, the evaporation is much better.

The only problem I've had is the Velcro across the stomach area catches on the front of my t-shirts and contributes to snags/pilling. No matter how carefully I match up the ends of the straps there's still some portion of the Velcro that catches on the t-shirt material.

I've used Under-Armor non-compression t-shirts and those have worked fine. I've also used the MSR compression t-shirts and like those better.

Andrew D: Yes, a wicking base layer is perfect. I'd recommend long sleeves. Leathers are hot and you will sweat even if you wear nothing. Because of this, you'll stick to your suit if you don't cover your skin. Long, wicking lightweight underwear - top and bottom - will make getting the suit on and off much easier and keep it cleaner. You can buy moto-specific stuff, but you really don't need to. Jun 30, 2014

A shopper asked: Would you recommend this extreme harness flite or the pro sub-4 with the chest protector added onto it? I only ask in terms of ease to put on and the inherent protection they offer. I'm by no means a racer; I'm just starting to get into track days, so I'm starting at the very bottom, but at the same time, I've been down before, and it wasn't pretty, so I want the best protection possible because it only takes 1 incident to change your life forever. But with that said, I also want it to be comfortable because if it's not, I'm not going to want to wear it, so how does this harness with the L2 back protector built into the harness compare to the sub-4 with the chest protector added to it?

VstromBob: From Vstrom Bob

i would definitely purchase the Forcefield extreme harness flite if it came mated with a Pro Sub4 and happily pay more for it.
I thought that the combined protection value of the front and back protector (Extreme Harness Flite) tied together with its excellent fastening system outweighed only having upgraded Prosub4 by itself.
I thinks its value is best realized when used in addition with a quality riding jacket used over it to afford the added protection of the jacket and their usual , hopefully good CE elbow and shoulder armor as well as the rubber back insert that goes in most jackets.
The harness is very comfortable , not stiff feeling at all. You almost forget your wearing it.
Hope this helps you in your selection process
P.S. I use this under a Joe Rocket Phoenix mesh riding jacket and when colder a Firstgear Kilimanjaro riding jacket.

Stevan P: They will both offer CE Level 2 back and CE Level 1 Chest protection and hold up equally in a crash. The harness is very easy to put on and take off and is very comfortable. The wider shoulder support straps are contoured to flow with the natural shape of the neck and shoulder area allowing a more ergonomic fit as opposed to combining the Sub 4 and Chest Protector.

Blonderhanz: i have the Sub-4 back protector, and love it. I am very happy with it and wouldn't want another back protector. Based on this back protector, I would add the chest protector to it. I wouldn't want a lesser back protector. Sep 28, 2011

VstromBob: From VstromBob
It was explained to me by the Revzillo staff that the Forcefield Extreme Harness Flite is married to the Forcefield Pro L2 protector. For me , I liked the idea of the combined type of protection that a front and back type of armor would afford , as is protecting the whole torso as a unit. I had read on some forums of the value of armor that does not shift position on impact which could happen to armor that is not well secured and fastened to ones body. This unit seemed to tie the front and rear protectors together so they would not shift around. I also felt it could/would afford some protection against over articulation/movement of ones torso section during an accident.
The Pro Sub 4 back protector looked like and is rate slightly better as a back protector on a stand alone basis versus the Pro L2 but I thought the combined protection value of the chest and back protector of. the Extreme Harness Flite afforded one better total protection from all the various different forces that could happen in an accident situation/scenario.
If the Extreme Harness Flite had come in a more upscale model with the Pro Sub4 mated to it I would have happily paid more for it.
All said I think this unit affords excellent protection especially when used in conjunction with a good quality riding jacket with its own elbow and shoulder protection.
Hope this helps with your decision, VstromBob

Blonderhanz: I can't totally answer your question since you ask about a comparison. I have the Sub-4, the "tailbone" part actually covers 2/3 to 3/4 of the sacrum, not the tailbone (coccyx) itself. If it covered the tailbone you would be sitting on it, and you aren't sitting on it. I figure, if something is going to hit the deck, it will be my sacrum back there. First time I noticed the back protector reaching below my belt line I realized the manufacturer was really thinking about this piece of equipment. Sep 28, 2011

Chris K: The Forcefield Extreme Harness Adventure without the arms is the same thing as the Extreme Harness Flite, so yes they would be able to attach. Apr 15, 2011

A shopper asked: Hi there- does anyone know if the sizing on this product has anything to do with the size of the chest protector itself? Both my torso length and chest size fall right in the middle of the Medium size. I bought a Medium and wore it on a 360 mile dual sport ride yesterday. The back protector fit nicely, but I felt that the chest part impeded my movement slightly. I'm wondering if a Small would also have a smaller chest protector and thus not get in my way quite as much. Anyone know? Thanks! Apr 9, 2014

Chris G: The small size does have a smaller chest piece allowing better movement of the arms. It is also smaller around the neck though. As this was a concern to me I kept my medium and still had to modify the neck opening. Apr 9, 2014
