Leatt 3DF AirFit Body Protector

Leatt’s top-of-the-line in soft body protection features lighter weight, more ventilation and an ultra secure strapping system. The perforated, multilayer, 3DF Airfit impact foam offers a soft and flexible fit, yet instantly transforms into a harder, energy-absorbing protector upon impact. This combination results in a comfortable fit that that forms to many body shapes and is CE certified on the chest, back, elbow and shoulder.

The Leatt 3DF AirFit Body Protector also features MoistureCool, a washable fabric that keeps the protectors in place, while wicking moisture away from the body to keep you cool. The body protector integrates perfectly with all Leatt neck braces or works equally well worn without a neck brace.

Leatt neck brace integration, great comfort, great fit, free flowing ventilation, impact tested and CE certified - all in one product.

  • Perforated, multilayer 3DF AirFit foam for a lighter, better fit and more ventilation
  • Back is impact tested and CE certified to EN1621-2, level 2
  • Chest is impact tested and CE certified to prEN1621-3, level 2
  • Elbows & shoulders are impact tested and CE certified to EN1621-1, level 1
  • MoistureCool wicking fabric helps keep you cooler
  • Elastic waist belt to give more secure protector positioning

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!

I'm a 5'6" woman 125 pounds with C cups - I mention all this because finding armor that fits women is hard. This is perfect!
Finding armonr that is respectable for a woman - meaning protection equal to the men's suits PLUS an appropriate fit instead of a Madonna costume - has been Hard. I've looked for years. This suit fits perfectly, no tight spots, no baggy spots, I can take a deep breath with no struggle (Ladies you know what I mean: my test is to zip up a jacket and take a very deep breath, If I can't I don't buy the jacket). It is definitely hot at a standstill, but true the air flows very very well while moving. I'm wearing it instead of a jacket with armor, putting my jacket sans armor or a jersey over it. I HIGHLY recommend this for a woman's form. If you have any technical questions, you'll find the folks at Leatt directly can answer them and many are women. Thanks Revzilla for carrying something of real quality that accomodates boobs appropriately. Put this in the women's section of your website too!

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

Upgraded from and older product. What an amazing difference. Just got back from and ride in Northern Thailand and Myanmar. Temperatures ranged from high 40s to high 80s. With layers (on and off), this worked perfectly.

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.

Solid armor
Overall solid piece of kit

Pros:
1. Light weight
2. Effective padding - have a few slow / mid speed falls in it and all key areas are sufficiently protected
3. Secured fit
4. Easy to put on / take off
5. Durable - have the armor for almost a year now (riding once a week all year round), with some careful cleaning / maintenance, armor is still 99.99% intact

Cons:
1. Air flow is still quite limited in summer - riding in 85F weather in the summer can be quite sweaty
2. Price is on the more "premium" side
3. Cleaning can be a slight pain if done properly (taking out and putting back all the individual padding takes some patience), perhaps widening the padding pockets and adding velcro would help

good impact protection
Good body armor and I like the kidney protectors on this too. One thing to change is to move the chest plate up 1-2 inches but not a huge deal.
Helpful Tip: when taking this off, start by grabbing the elbow pads from the inner holes on each arm and slide down towards the wrist. you'll get this off a lot easier as it is compression type material which is supposed to hug you. I typically wear this under a hoodie or jacket and the feel / fit is nice and snug and b/c of the material you don't feel like you are being suffocated, I would definitely buy this again. Just remember this is impact only and wont help as far as abrasion.

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.

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.

Solid protection
Not a bad peice of kit - It's great for summer riding where you'd typically give up most/all abrasion resistance so you can keep riding through the 40c summers you get here in Australia.

I also wear it under jackets which i felt had poor armor and it does the job well - the armor itself is quite flexible and thin so it doesn't take up loads of space under a jacket. If you want to get a fashionable jacket to wear this under you still probably would need to size up the jacket however.

I've not crashed in it, but i've no doubt it'd do it jobs well. I'm also quite tall and the back protector would provide me full coverage of my back. For reference i'm 6 foot 4.

It really only fits well if you're fairly slim - I'm not over weight, but borderline (as per BMI) and i could certainly lose a couple of kg's to improve the fit. I wouldn't recommend if you're in the overweight or above bracket unless you're in there because you're a body builder or athlete.

Size guide is pretty spot on.

Good price, needed something suitable for warmer weather.
Josh C on Apr 16, 2015
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.
Marc F on Dec 17, 2014
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.

Lightweight body armor.
David P on Mar 29, 2016
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)
Nicholas M on May 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
would the leatt adventure jacket or this be better for riding motocross and trails in the hot Georgia summer?
A shopper on Jan 15, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
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
A shopper on Nov 21, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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!
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)?
A shopper on May 13, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is this product compatible with the Leatt STX road neck brace?
Phat T on Jul 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I do not think it will feet. the back protector will not make it able since the space for the leatt to feet in.

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.
Ariel M on Apr 25, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I thought it would have some kidney protection too, but it doesn't. It is comfortable and may be worth having an auxiliary belt for that reason.
Do you put this on over your head like Jersey or does it have zippers?
don b on Apr 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: 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.
However,
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.
Is this body armor for dirt bikes only or can be use for street bikes ?
A shopper on Jun 27, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I use my body armor for both uses. You can wear it under jackets with less armor built in. You can wear it under a jersey or jacket that does not have armor. It is very comfortable armor for both bicycle and motorcycle etc.
Appears to have side rib and hip pads from the picture {although they dont show them removable}. Are these the same bio-foam as the upper pads? Hows the fit under pants? Did you have to remove pant hip armor?
phil m on Apr 5, 2015
BEST ANSWER: No conflicts with hip protectors. I wear Alpinestar pants with hip and tailbone protectors with it. No conflicts. None of the armor is removable.
How should you clean??
A shopper on Jan 4, 2015
BEST ANSWER: Remove pads. Put in bathtub with cold water and Woolite. Let soak. Swirl it in the water for a bit. Rinse with cold water. I rinse it in the shower on a hanger. Let it hang to dry. Reassemble
