Leatt STX Jason Britton Road Neck Brace (Size 2XL Only)
easy to adjust so it fits right
this is the first time i have bought such a device. I did have a crash sometime back where in i landed on my neck and was lucky enough not to have broken it. I strongly recomend the neck brace as a protection/safety gear for those looking for one. A bit expensive though but better than breaking your neck.....

Very comfortable to wear
I was expecting it to be heavy and uncomfortable. It's light and it's easy to forget it's there until I stop, of course. The only issue is what to do with it when I stop for food, etc.

Great protection for an excellent price!
I chose Leatt because of their reputation as a leader in orthopedic spinal/neck protection. This particular model was priced right and I was confident it would fit over my KLIM Badlands Pro jacket. So far, I'm very happy. It fits well - I'm 6 foot tall and 250 pounds with a large, barrel chest. I use the largest shims of the three pairs that come with the brace to achieve proper fit. The brace does not ride up so I have not used the underarm straps that came with the brace. I also like how easy it is to take apart for easy storage in my panniers. My only concern is that in the cold weather riding (I wear a KLIM balaclava under my C3 Pro helmet) turning my head as far as I need to can be an issue. It should not be a problem when the weather warms up a bit. I highly recommend Leatt braces and a high quality helmet. They can be expensive, but as registered nurse specializing in the rehabilitation of brain and spinal cord injured people, I recommend spending money on the things you want to protect the most - head and neck are obviously most critical.

Happy with first neck brace purchase
I got this for a severely discounted price of 200. I've been eyeing them for a while for off-road and for track. Turns out they are different shapes for different applications. This is made specifically for street helmets. I used at last track day and to my surprise, I didn't notice it at all. It rested exactly where it was supposed to and didn't move. The small amount of extra weight was not noticeable. I'm going to wear all the time now.
I know these are not popular for track but I think every piece of protection that is reasonable should be used. Anything to protect against life changing accident I'm all for

Great product, works well.
I'm new to riding and wanted to get all the protective gear I could. This brace was the last piece of the puzzle. It has a good amount of adjustment, allows for a fair amount head movement and most importantly makes me feel more confident and protected on the bike. Great value for the money

More piece of mind.
I always thought of getting a neck brace, but I held off buying it because they are expensive. Then, my friend just crashed his enduro bike over New Year's and broke 2 neck vertebrae and 6 ribs.
This particular brace had a great price, good color combo and split back support blades. It was easy to adjust for fit and is barely noticeable when riding.
I use a Sena 10c communicator, which collides occasionally when I turn my head to the left, but that's expected and I got used to it.
Overall I can recommend the product and would buy it again.

Leatt STX Neck Brace
Just had a non-bike neck surgery and realized how delicate (and important) the neck and head is for just about everything. So, although I've never thought about the need for a neck brace before, following both my surgery and a couple of recent tire eating twisty trips I couldn't pass on the Sale Opp at $199. The sale price made it a no brainier to take the plunge and gear up with an important and quality product. The Revzilla review and other research gave me confidence in know it was definitely the right choice. I found that every highlighted feature was as advertised and without any surprises. Probably one of the best bike purchases I've made this year!

I've only worn it once yet on my 40mi one way commute, but it's mostly unnoticeable, just as advertised. This will be part of my standard gear from now on.
I decided to get one of these after hitting a deer last month and rolling away from it completely unharmed. Unharmed other than the bike was totaled that is. I decided that I might not be so lucky next time and that I should have all the gear and tech on my team as I can.
It only needed slight adjustment to get a good fit. It has many adjustment options. The only one I needed was to move the scapula wings in a notch.
The only time I feel limited at all is when turning my head left or right an extreme amount. I tend to really turn my head when lane checking and I do feel the helmet hit the brace when doing that. Other than that you really don't notice it.
Hopefully I will never need to report on its performance in a situation for which it was invented.
