Note: Forcefield Rib Protector sizing is based on height. The size Large is intended for individuals 6'4" and taller.
Bought specifically for rib protection when taking the 2-day BMW Adventure Bike Enduro Skills class in Greer SC. I believe there is greater area of rib protection by wearing the product backwards (which also provides chest/sternum protection. My jackets already have Level 2 spine protectors). The product is equally comfortable worn in either configuration. I was tossed off 3 times in the class, and not a single injury to the ribs, plenty of bruises in other areas not protected by armor. The slight amount of discomfort due to sweating is more than surpassed by the protection. The product is quite stiff in cold conditions but becomes flexible upon wearing.

Great full coverage rib protection
I purchased to use this as a full chest and ribcage protector. These run large, even the small fits a bit large- I wear a 44 Euro Dainese jacket for reference. Due to it running slightly large, it is a bit uncomfortable if I bend my torso forward too much. It is very secure with the shoulder straps and the large velro strap.

Very good rib protection
I have a Medium and it's a true fit, 5'9 & 170 lbs. The fabric is a little stiff but still comfortable enough. It weighs 2 lbs 2 ounces and conforms under a coat so you don't look or feel inflated. I've seen pictures of it worn covering both the front and the back, Revzilla shows it worn on the back. I wear it covering my chest, it wraps around the ribs better that way. I bought it because nothing else gives good side protection and that's where I've busted bones twice, the last time gave me a week vacation in the hospital with a tube in my chest. You might want to add a back protector, or a chest protector depending on which way to wear it. In either case you will be left with something not covered. But the other gear, suits, and harnesses that covers both chest and back never adequately protect your sides, except the rodeo vests that the bull riders wear.
