Money well-spent
Bought specifically for rib protection when taking the 2-day BMW Adventure Bike Enduro Skills class in Greer SC. I believe there is greater area of rib protection by wearing the product backwards (which also provides chest/sternum protection. My jackets already have Level 2 spine protectors). The product is equally comfortable worn in either configuration. I was tossed off 3 times in the class, and not a single injury to the ribs, plenty of bruises in other areas not protected by armor. The slight amount of discomfort due to sweating is more than surpassed by the protection. The product is quite stiff in cold conditions but becomes flexible upon wearing.

Great addition to my selection of gear
A guy recently posted to YouTube a video of him low-siding his brand new Honda Grom slipping on mud while taking a corner. He was not going fast, and the Grom is a small bike, but he still broke several ribs. It was a wakeup call for me and after much research, I ordered this rib protector. As some of the other reviewers have said, you can wear it the other way around and get chest and rib protection; this works well if you already have a CE insert in your jacket. I am 5'3", 115 lbs, 34" chest and the small is snug around my armpits but not uncomfortable.

Very good rib protection
I have a Medium and it's a true fit, 5'9 & 170 lbs. The fabric is a little stiff but still comfortable enough. It weighs 2 lbs 2 ounces and conforms under a coat so you don't look or feel inflated. I've seen pictures of it worn covering both the front and the back, Revzilla shows it worn on the back. I wear it covering my chest, it wraps around the ribs better that way. I bought it because nothing else gives good side protection and that's where I've busted bones twice, the last time gave me a week vacation in the hospital with a tube in my chest. You might want to add a back protector, or a chest protector depending on which way to wear it. In either case you will be left with something not covered. But the other gear, suits, and harnesses that covers both chest and back never adequately protect your sides, except the rodeo vests that the bull riders wear.

Great full coverage rib protection
I purchased to use this as a full chest and ribcage protector. These run large, even the small fits a bit large- I wear a 44 Euro Dainese jacket for reference. Due to it running slightly large, it is a bit uncomfortable if I bend my torso forward too much. It is very secure with the shoulder straps and the large velro strap.

Rib protection that will cover your back or chest
This was the first piece of armor I picked up. I just wanted something light and simple while I was learning how to ride. I used it as back protection at first and it was sufficient for that. Very few jackets have chest/rib protection so once I bought a jacket with built in back armor, I turned this around to cover my chest and ribs. This is the way it should be marketed. It has no problems stopping pieces of tire or any other debris that cars kick up. If you want light armor, this is what you want.

Comfortable rib and chest protection
Seems like the protection is optimized by wearing this in front with the Velcro strap in back. In this configuration your sternum and ribs are completely covered. The gear is comfortable and doesn't restrict arm movement. I ordered a small and needed to shorten the main strap by folding back on itself and running it thru the sewing machine - took 5 minutes and is reversible by removing the stitches if needed someday. This gear also works with the Leatt neck brace without needed to change the settings on the brace which is nice. I haven't crash tested this yet but it seems like this could save a person from a few broken ribs.

Awesome chest & Rib coverage!!!
Match this with the FF L2 Pro Back protector and you have a confidence inspiring turtle shell that fits well under blousey jackets, great mobility, and relatively light weight.

I run this under my Overland and find it better than the Badlands for what I want.

Rib Protector with Back Protector
Bought the rib protector after getting caught by someone pulling out in front of me on the highway and ended up with a busted rib. I also bought the ForceField Back Protector Pro L2. The combination of the two give me all around protection for my torso. I wear the Rib protector backwards and over the back protector. My jacket is the FirstGear Mesh Tex Jacket. Warning the back protector will get hot as it does not breath but a small price for added protection.

Flexable and Comfortable
I've put on around 2,000 miles while wearing this product and have had no issues. The stitching seems to be strong and the product well made. I bought this product to cover my chest and ribs and it does so quiet splendidly. (Also works on my back) I'm 5'11 and size 31 waist (thin dude) and purchased a size small.
Something to note: It does cut down on air flow substantially. I have however road through the desert in 109F (42.7C) temperatures with this product and survived. I hope to purchase a cooling vest to go under it and see how it works out, update to come.

The Best you can have
I know I have the best protection out there with this rib, back protector. I wear it with the addition of the Forcefield Shirt Protector. I removed padding from all my motorcycle jackets and use this exclusively
