Leatt STX Road Neck Brace
Why have I not gotten this brace before?!!!
This is one piece of rider protective equipment that every motorcyclist should have! Initially, it seemed like a lot of money since it costs more than quite a few of the helmets out there. But after doing a lot of research about neck and spinal cord injuries that can occur during a crash (some can be life altering or even threatening!) and how the Leatt neck braces significantly reduce the risk of such injuries, I was convinced that in the grand scheme of things, the STX road brace was definitely worth the money! Yes, the helmet is still the most important rider protective equipment to have, but I think a neck brace, especially one like the STX road brace (not a little foam cushion collar) is as important as a helmet.
I've only been riding with it for about two weeks now so I can't speak for its durability. But the fit is fantastic. It isn't bulky at all and the only time I notice it is when I am doing shoulder checks since the front bottom of my helmet touches the sides of the brace (not really a problem for me). And when it comes to style, I think it looks awesome!
All in all, it's a great piece of preventative equipment to have and I personally feel that much safer wearing it. Even if the yellow parts don't match the rest of your riding outfit, you won't care about that if you get into an accident (may that never happen to you!).
Seriously guys and gals, get this piece of rider protection!

Excellent build and fit. Save your neck . It may be considered overkill by some but its the opposite of the glove free , t-shirt and shorts wearing summer riders. If you prioritize safety over open to serious injury, this product is a step in the right direction. Its solid , based on science and has the light fit and has a high build quality. I am using it consistently.

Very good product but Revzilla sent me a used one !
I am so disappointed with Revzilla after realizing this item sent was already opened and used and sold as new. I am pretty sure because I bought a second one for my wife and the condition and the way it arrived was really different. Already complained and waiting to have a new on.e The product is excellent and I strongly recommend it.

Perfect Neck Brace
Perfect Neck Brace for road riders and occasional off road trail riders. Fits OVER your jacket and around your jacket collar. Works well with helmet, does no slip. Does not restrict head turning. Easy to put on/remove. Make sure you buy the size that fits OVER your protective gear-maybe 1 size larger than you think you need. Great product from Leatt!

Seems pretty cool, tiny bit heavier than I expected
So far the brace seems well made. Its definitely only about function, nothing superfluous. It is a little heavy when you first put it on but I think I will get used to it quickly. In particular I ordered it from RevZilla cuz they give free shipping to Hawaii, something few other ppl do. They shipped it the same day I ordered it and it got here super quick.

never ride without it
I bought this thinking neck protection was a good idea, not knowing how soon I was to find out the reality of this.
The third event i wore to, I high sided and landed head first... did this thing save my life? I do not honestly know, what i do know is that I did not even have a sore neck the next day... wound up with a sprained wrist and jammed thumb. I am sold, will never ride without it again.

This is a good investment that every rider should have. It is pricey but it is worth it. Now, I never ride without it knowing that my neck and spinal are protected with Leatt STX neck brace. Ride Safe!

Impossible to make it fit
The sizing chart suggested a size XXL. This was way to big. I exchanged for size LG-XL. I really tried hard to get a correct fit with the jacket I wear but found it impossible to do so, even with all the possible adjustments. The brace will not stay in place and will thus not provide proper protection. The brace itself seems sturdy but the elastic bands keeping it in place are a gimmick. Returning this for a refund. Revzilla's customer support is great. Do not expect any support from the company that makes the brace. If you have back and shoulder armor you will have fitment problems. Do not trust the provided size chart
