Leatt’s top-of-the-line in soft body protection features lighter weight, more ventilation and an ultra secure strapping system.

Leatt 3DF AirFit Body Protector 4.8 5 12 12
great fit, fast delivery it fits like a second skin, very light with good padding June 1, 2015
Fits like it isn't there I bought a S/M that is shared by my 11 & 14 year old boys (perfect fit for the older boy, but slightly oversized for the 11 year old). I was so impressed by it that I got a L/XL for myself. This armor allows a lot of air in (cold on 65 °F rides with only an undershirt), and is so comfortable that you forget it is there. It has protection in all the right areas, but thankfully we haven't tested it's effectiveness yet. The main advantage I can see with this armor is that it is not sport specific. I can be used in motocross, mountain biking, snowmobiling, skiing, and commuting on the street bike. March 30, 2015
This product saved my life!!!! This product SAVED MY LIFE!!!! You can barely feel this while wearing and is very comfortable. I was riding at Little Sahara in Utah and was on the back side of Sand Mountain. I had been doing a figure 8 pattern though some of the bowls. I stopped to see where the group I was riding with was then decided to go through the figure 8 one last time. I followed what I thought was my previous tracks. I crested the dune going 50-55 MPH and instead of it flattening out on the top it dropped into a big sink hole. I fell 20 -30 feet down, I bent the frame ant the forks on the bike. I broke 8 ribs, my sternum, shattered my right scapula, broke my left wrist, and my C7 vertebrae. Collapsed my right lung, bruised my rt kidney and bruised my heart. I was wearing my Airfit body armor, my leatt neck brace and my helmet. I was life flighted out and spent 8 days in the ICU. Had I not been wearing my body armor or neck brace I would be six feet under. I owe my life to Leatt. The EMTs cut off my armor but as soon as I am ready to ride again I will be purchasing Leatt body armor again! February 24, 2015
Very comfortable Good product use it in the winter time for Snowbike in the Mountains, gives good protection from tree strikes. It does act like a base layer and will help keep you warm. Very easy to move around in and I am very happy with the protection. It is a snug fit I have the xxl and I am 6-2" 190 lbs. so make sure you size properly. February 17, 2015
Excellent upgrade from stock armor in jacket I own the Klim Badlands pant and jacket. Armor in the jacket is excellent, but will move around too much in a wreck. Coming from road racing and wearing leathers I like my protection to stay put in the event of an accident. Removed stock pads from Klim jacket, put the AirFit on, put jacket back on and I am good to go. Quality seems excellent. Comfort is great. Recommend. November 17, 2014
Light, flexible and cool upper body protector The protector was purchased in the attempt to save luggage weight/space during my dirt biking trip to Ouray, CO. Compared to hard shells, the protector is super light, very flexible and the airflow is absolutely awesome. In fact it is so light and comfortable that 3 or 4 times during the rides when jumping off the slopes or negotiating trails on the edge of my capabilities I had to force myself to calm down and remember that I was wearing the protector. A must have in the long enduro adventures September 16, 2014
good for keeping your style Feels great once you're on the bike, it really conforms to your body. Buy larger than you expect I'm 6'1" 180 lbs and the xxl fits me perfectly.normally I'm a medium. Great for long rides but kind of a pain if you plan on stopping a bunch cause you'll want to take it Off and store it.great for adding armor to your favorite jackets but offers no abrasion resistance of its own. Overall it feels great and adds piece of mind for those wrist case moments. June 16, 2014
good stuff! had 2 rides wearing this body armor so far. both in high 70F low 80F. it's very comfortable and I don't even feel it when riding. I put motocross jersey on top and nothing underneath it. I would say it vents OK, i don't feel overly hot in it. packaging should include better care instructions.. Note on the box says don't wash it. well...how do I keep it clean than? I had few small get offs wearing it and it did it's job just fine. I am 5'7 155 and small size fits rather tight.. but I guess it needs to be tight to stay in place if you crash. overall, this is not a cheap armor but I tried many other brands and types and decided to spend my $$ on this one. I do not regret it. it's lightweight, comfort and solid protection makes it worth the $$. i marked it at 4 stars for durability..just what my gut says..but 2 rides in so far and it's like brand new.

RevZilla Store asked: Why did you choose this?
zack h: Texas weather. Jul 18, 2015
Adam K: Not as bulky as regular chest protector and adds extra protection for elbows Apr 25, 2015
Josh C: Good price, needed something suitable for warmer weather. Apr 16, 2015
Marc F: The reviews on this product were very strong. After trying on several lesser expensive products in my area I felt this vest might be just the ticket. I have broad shoulders and an athletic build ie no beer gut, it was important to me that the armor sit tight to my body for proper protection. You cant expect everything to fit perfectly but this piece fits great! The pads are situated correctly and that was my top concern.

Time will tell as to how it holds up but it seems promising.

michael b: I purchased this for protection and comfort. I wear it under a Roland Sands leather jacket to compensate for the badly fitting armor. I feel really protected wearing this vest, it protects every part of the upper body, from shoulders, elbows, back area and chest. It also feels very comfortable, and is great in both warm and cold days. I would highly recommend this product. Great price and great protection, and easy to get into. I am almost 6 feet, 170ilbs and a large fits me well. Nov 6, 2014

Nicholas M asked: I want to get a lightweight alternative for short 5-10 min highway (45-60mph). Is this jacket abrasion resistant in a crash on asphalt? Also should I wear a shirt underneath? ( I've heard Kevlar can be like sand paper in a crash and is recommended to wear something underneath) May 13, 2014

Mathew M: In my opinion this jacket is absolutely NOT suitable as an exterior layer in any amount of street riding at any speed. This isn't a fault of the jacket, as it was never intended to be used for this purpose. It is not abrasion resistant at all, I am not sure where you got the kevlar part. It is made of "stretchy" breathable fabric material to that most surely restricts its purpose to under-layer impact protection only. That being said it is fantastic, super comfortable and lightweight, I hardly notice I am wearing it. I wear an alpinestars textile air jacket with the pads removed and it fits just perfect. No more worries about moving pads when you go down and very discrete, goodbye football shoulder pad jacket look.Two thumbs up but absolutely not as your street exterior layer. Jun 11, 2014

terry w: I have the 3DF airfit body protector and the fit and comfort is quite good, no big get-offs yet so I can't comment on the protection. To compare against Leatt's adventure jacket I can't as I don't have one, but riding trails especially tight single line stuff here in Australia in summer is always hot work which is why we have road bikes and water sports.

A shopper asked: I looking for a lightweight option for short highway trips around town and I don't feel like wearing my heavy dainese jacket for the summer for 5-10 min rides. Is this item abrasion resistant at a crash on asphalt at about 50mph? Should I wear a t-shirt underneath (I know some kevlar shirts can be like sandpaper if a t-shirt isn't worn underneath)?

Jude T: I ride an adventure toutring bike (XT1200Z) and I bought this body protector for my dirt road rides in the warm season. I live north of Montreal and the warm weather does not last very long, I mean warm enough so that my Alpine Stars Long Range 2 jacket becomes too hot at low speed. I have never considered the 3DF as a replacement to my usual gear, I knew for the start that it meant compromising on protection to gain on ventilation and comfort. As I said, I use it for riding the backroads and I stick with my Long Range suit for longer rides and my commute.

I wear a shirt underneath and a dirt bike type of jersey on top.

P.S. Never crashed yet with it or with any other piece of equipement and I hope to never put it to the test.

Ariel M asked: Hi, this one looks much more comfortable than the "hard material" Leatt Adventure Body Protector and the Leatt 5.5. Body Protector. However, would I need a kidney belt to go with it or does it have some kidney protection? Thanks. Apr 25, 2015

Brent F: It has small pads protecting the kidneys from impact, but it is not a compression fit like a kidney belt would be (i.e. no protection from jarring, so the kidneys are free to move around in the body). Apr 26, 2015

don b asked: Do you put this on over your head like Jersey or does it have zippers? Apr 7, 2015
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
art k: It has a small toothed zipper from bottom to top along the left side of chest. I prefer this to a central zipper which presents a weak spot on sternum protection IMHO.
I like the idea and intention of this item.
1. Leatt does not sell the shirt separately to facilitate changing on multi-day road trips. This would have been a deal breaker for me, had I first thought to ask.
2. The zipper broke after wearing it on 5 occasions. It separated and would not unzip. I fiddled and fiddled and mended it eventually without having to replace the zipper or entire unit.
I'd like to give 3DF a more positive review but these two issues are very limiting.
I will not buy another until these two issues are addressed.
Good idea, poorly implemented - marketed wrt no shirts available without the protection. Fresh gear and bulk in luggage are the issues for me.

A shopper asked: Hi, I live in Hawaii so thinking this would be good in the heat for trail riding. I'm kinda skinny 6'2", 175 lbs & long arms, what size would you recommend? Thanks Nov 21, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Jude T: Hi, I am 6'3", 180 lbs and I bought a 2XL. It fits just fine and I believe this should be your size. These are made for athletic shape, it works in compression, therefore no room for extra weight. I wear a second skin type of underneath and a meshed jersey on top.

I look at my friends with their jackets on warm days and I feel for them!

Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
William D: I've got a long torso but more of a medium shirt size (size 40 jacket) so I bought the medium AirFit to ensure that it fit snugly and that my shoulders were covered properly. With that there is about a hand's width, say 5 inches, from the bottom of the pad to the waist. So it sounds like it would be short by your standards. I have to say though that it fits well. I would have liked the pad to be wider at the scapulae (the L size is wider apparently) but then the rest of the suit would most likely have been too large. Haven't tried it out yet in test conditions. It seems that all of these sorts of items come with some compromise since body types vary. I plan to wear it under a jacket anyway so I can supplement the back pad. Sep 11, 2014
Reply to William Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Nicholas C: It comes down to about the top of motocross pants. It works well for trail riding as you are not having it push up. Lower back protectors would always ride up when they bumped the seat and I hated that. This is a great piece of gear. I hardly notice that I have it on.

Rajeev P: This protector is NOT abrasion resistant. The MoistureCool material is as thin as t-shirt (but way more comfortable). I wear 3DF protector as a base layer underneath a Motoport mesh kevlar jacket, and I am super comfortable even in 85 degree weather. May 29, 2014
Reply to Rajeev Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Tory C: This has no abrasion resistance at all…. At 50mph it would peal right off you, that’s not what it’s designed for. It’s purpose is to hold the padding close to the body and keep it in place. Great product, that’s comfortable to wear for long off road rides, but not as a complete line of defense against a road off… May 30, 2014

MARIO M: Hi Fred,

it would probably take 1 size up if using with a jacket due to all the armor provided.

Reply to MARIO Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
Mathew M: The Leatt is very low profile, soft armor and when sized properly the suit fits very well and tight, but not uncomfortably so. With the stretch material it's almost like it was custom molded for me, and I would almost dare say you can fit into the same size motorcycle jacket with the jacket pads removed. The chest protector sits about 3/4 of an inch thick, the shoulders about 1/2 inch, the forearm and elbow pad is hefty for probably 3/4 of an inch thickest to 1/2 inch mostly, the back protector an inch thick maybe an inch and a quarter. All in all extremely low profile, MUCH thinner than my velocity juggernaut hard armor suit where I had to size up significantly. If your current jacket is skin tight and has no removable stock padding you may need to size up but I dare say this Leatt airfit changed my thinner build to a more slightly athletic "muscular" type build with no reason to size up my jacket due to the such low profile of the armor and due to me removing my jacket armor. Check out the video review and you can see just how slim it is. May 5, 2014
