Excellent Product - Wish back protection were better
Ownership:
I have owned this for about four months. I ride two or three times per week. I crash a LOT, and this surely kept me safe.

Fitment:
This protector fits me great. Having a waist synch really helps a fella like me who has a big torso and small waist keep the vest where it ought to be. Taking the unit off can be a little tricky, because the forearm sleeves will relentlessly stick to you, so you have to remove your arms with care, lest you tear them off. An adjustment for the shoulder pads would be greatly appreciated (although they fit me just fine where they are).

Features:
The rib protection is what made me commit to this protector. I was happy to see that it will integrate with a neck brace easily, in case if I can afford one later. I was also glad to finally have found a vest that had elbow protection integrated into the whole device. I like that this protector is very much one-piece (although the sleeves can zip off).

**wishing the back protection were better: If you check the pictures, you will see that the back paneling doesn't go all the way down the back. As humans, we have some delicate vertebra down there, where the spin curves into the pelvis, and nothing to protect it, save for a thin, think layer of skin. It would be nice to have just one more panel, where the waist band is, like some other protectors have.

Great protection - but some minor annoyances
This pressure suit definitely offers better protection than the old Fox Titan suit I used to wear. Seems to be the only one on the market that actually has protection for your rib cage. Definitely a high level of protection if you're in the habit of falling off your bike (like me).

Not bad in hot weather: vents quite well.

However, I do have some minor complaints:

1) the fabric that holds this thing together (basically some kind of stretchy spandex shirt) seems to be lacking a little in the quality. You need to be gentle pulling it on, or you'll rip it.

2) what's with the zip off sleeves at the elbow? Seems kinda cool, and maybe functional, but the zipper only goes 1/2 way around your arm ?? Feels fine when you have it on, though, so not a huge complaint.

3) running up each side of this pressure suit from the bottom (waist) upward to the arm pits, there are zippers. Easy enough to zip them up, but after 15 minutes of riding, they're more than 1/2 way down. Why can't the zippers just stay put? Not a deal breaker, as I never seemed to notice while riding...whenever I stopped though, I happened to notice the zippers were nearly undone.

All in all, it fits well, and it definitely protects better than other brands. Back, chest, ribs, shoulders and elbows are all very well protected.

Getting it on and off takes some practice. Price is a little steep, but protection costs money. I'd have no problem to recommend it, and I would buy it again. Money well spent.

Not Sure about Durability
Just received this, and out of the box, the stitching of the elastic band that's holding up the right shoulder bad was ripped. The left side was intact, but I think with little bit of tug and wear, I feel like this was going to rip as well. For the price you pay, I was surprised, and was concerned about how long this will last.
Just requested to return this product

highly recommend this product for dual sport riders.
My father taught me that if something is important, buy the best gear available, so that your results in using it match your expectations. This body protector from Leatt meets that criteria. It is made from the best materials, and when riding I don't notice that I am wearing it. Fits like a glove. I am 6 ft. and 195 lbs. and the large size fits perfect. If you are 200 lbs or heavier I would suggest an xlrg. Getting it on and off takes some getting use too but the feeling of extreme protection is worth the effort. Have not crashed yet, and hope not too, but dirt riding always provides that possibility and real insurance is that which keeps you safe.

Very well designed piece of kit
I have crashed extensively in this. I'm 5'9.5" 160lbs (fairly thin but still muscular build) and the size large fits me perfectly. I have taken very hard hits to the chest, back, shoulders, and elbows in this, with very good results (no broken bones, or even bruises for that matter). I am fairly new to riding offroad and MX so I crash quite frequently. I am old (34) so I can't afford to break myself too badly because I work for a living. This is why I invested in this setup. I look forward to using the neck brace as well, my brother has the fusion 3.0 with the neckbrace, and hes taken huge hits in that as well (knocked the wind out of him due to a huge chest impact) but was OK. 2 minor compaints, one of the aluminum screws rattled loose off the back plate, and the stretch shirt material seems like it could be tougher. Other than that, this thing has took a severe beating and has held up.

Heavy duty...
Purchased this because it is one of the few pieces of kit that is actually CE rated. There is a bit of a method to getting this thing on but it is honestly worth it. Clearly well made and thought out protection. I've washed it in the washer several times without issue.

I've crashed a few times with this thing on and it has saved me from bumps and bruises for sure...

One thing I have noticed is to leave the forearm protectors on the garment when putting it on and then zip them off when it is time to get back in the truck.

I will eventually purchase the compatible neck brace/protector as well.

very solid and offers good protection
the previous version of this product offered more adjustability. If you have thin shoulders there is no ability to tighten things in the shoulders. If you are tall and thin this is a bit of an issue. It isn't bad but would be nice if it were adjustable. Besides that it is 5 stars.

Leatt 5.5
I'm in Florida and it's hot. This product is fairly heavy and is going to add to your overall body temperature. With that said it seems well made and is fairly comfortable for what it is. It's designed to accommodate a Leatt neck brace and didn't work well with another one I had in the back area where the insert is narrow and didn't fit a two pronged brace. I ride in narrow, tight wooded trails a lot where you need protection from trees. I thought this might add to my arm fatigue because of the weight, but once I'm on my bike and riding I don't notice it all. There is a zipper on the side you can undo which helps in removal. Would probably really help if you fell and were hurt. This thing gets sweaty but I just put it in the shower or take the garden hose to it and let it hang to dry. It is holding up well so far. I also have a softer pad shirt which is less bulky but doesn't offer the hard pads and is just as hot. Overall I'm happy with this product and the protection it is offering a beginning/intermediate rider such as myself.

Does this product need to be paired with a neck brace or can it be used without one?
A shopper on Feb 6, 2015
BEST ANSWER: You don't need to use a neck brace. The good thing about the 5.5 is it integrates with the 5.5 neck brace but you can also ride with no brace.
I primarily run enduros in tight woods. It's hard to tell from the pictures, is it ventilated well or will it be hot to wear?
A shopper on Sep 7, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It's not that bad for what it is. It can be a little warm depending on how hot/humid the it will be where you are riding that day. I like it because you have the options of taking the sleeves off you don't need them. I think the 5.5 offers the best protection out there right now.
I will say this, it is a little bulky.
can this be worn on a sport bike?
connor f on May 20, 2015
BEST ANSWER: It would not serve you very well in a street type crash but it can be worn on a street bike. Your better off with impact rated equipment that exceeds the impact rating of this particular item. I think for the needs of a street bike pilot, you would want something that is less bulky, more impact resistant at high speeds and it will protect you while skidding across pavement. This will do all those things but not nearly as good as purpose built street bike gear. I do wish you the best of luck. This would serve you better on a dirt bike in the woods.
I'm 6'2" but thin (175 lbs)....I'm supposed to get the 2XL? Will it be loose on me?
A shopper on Sep 5, 2016
BEST ANSWER: I'm 6'2 and 220 and the xl fits me as I'd perfectly. Note this is a serious protective piece. It weighs quite a bit. I rode 3 hours hard enduro the first day I got it just fine but I was a lot sweater than normal. Definitely destroyed the tree branch I ran in to however????
Good heart protection ??
A shopper on Feb 26, 2016
BEST ANSWER: The Leatte 5.5 has superior chest protection. For heart protection you might want to quit smoking.
Is this compatible with the Leatt STX road neck brace?
Greg S on Aug 8, 2016
BEST ANSWER: Hi Greg, I bought Leatt 5.5 Body Protector and Leatt GPX 5.5 Neck Brace and they are compatible but I can not comment on the STX model...And I must say that I haven't used the neck brace much, because it doesnt really stays in it's place and also because here summer temperature gets to 95 -105 F and shame on me, I lack the discipline to wear all the gear all the time, If you can..my advise is to borrow one from a friend before buying it or order it under a good returnable policy and try it out soon after getting it so you can still return it if not comfortable .......Good Luck
