Forcefield Race Lite Chest Protector
Good fit in dainese jacket
This protector fits great in the dainese Avro c2's chest pocket. The material becomes more pliable once your body warms it up. Hence, contouring itself to your body. I do not notice it while riding.

Fits well and doesn't really add much bulk inside my suit. Flows a lot of air, so as long as you're moving, it isn't too warm.
Gripes: The new dual strap approach sucks (and requires you are wearing a back protector - no standalone uses). One of my straps was damaged upon receipt - though Revzilla got one out to me ASAP.
I highly recommend buying the optional strap harness as this is easier to wear with less movement. Just give yourself enough time to exchange the straps if yours come damaged.

Great pair for the Forcefield Sub 4 back protector
I picked this chest protector to go with the Forcefield Sub 4 back protector, which is a great pairing. I ordered one size larger for greater protection and don't regret it. It's not too bulky and I'm glad I'm wearing it when I hit the road.

Good protection, very comfortable, except on very hot days.
I wear the chest protector with the Forcefield Chest Protector harness which holds it in place really well. You need to wear two shirts however and under shirt (vest) then the protector then your tee shirt or whatever shirt over the top. Worn as above it is virtually unnoticable. The way it is made it forms to your body and you cant even feel it on most of the time very comfortable. It's made really well and the CE qualification should protect you well when required. The down side to it temperature over say 32 C or 90 F you will sweat and the undershirt will be damp; over say 35 c or 95 F your undershirt will be wet. But I guess chest protectors in hot conditions will have this negative. I am 5' 7" 41 chest and 41''stomach and the medium fits fine. I ride a Honda Spirit (Shadow) C2 motorcycle, perhaps in the future a touring/Cruiser hybrid Honda CTX 1300.

Excellent product - hope I never test it!
Added the Race Lite chest protector to the Pro L2K back protector I already had to complete the ensemble. Construction is similar to the back protector, flows air just as well, and, most important, molds to your chest shape - you don't notice it after a few minutes riding. Fortunately, both protectors fit perfectly under my race leathers without adding excess bulk. (I am a size 42 chest and purchased the Medium protector.) Very pleased with the quality and fit & finish of Forcefield products - highly recommended.

It is what it claims
Outstanding protection at a very reasonable price. I will always buy and use Forcefield back and chest protectors.

True to size from the Forcefield Sizing chart. Bought for track use and fits well under race leathers. Tight fit but with the right sized suit it will work.

Comfortable and Sleek
As with other Forcefield products, the chest armor is very comfortable and molds to the body quiet fast. I can not comment about the protection for I have not crashed in it, but it seems that Forcefield is the leader in armour according to the ce tests. The only complaint is that it no longer comes with the harness as mentioned, so if you occasionally like to ride without stand alone back armour you need to purchase it. Also I wish the coverage was a bit more of the sides of the ribcage. As for sizing, I wear size 44 euro and choose the medium, which seems to fit well in terms of height.
