James K. from DALLAS, TX:
Great vest. It is slightly skewed and not symmetrical. Fits ok for the most part. I'm 5'7 185lbs with a slight belly and I ordered a large. The large is too big. Order one size down. I made the mistake to order exact cause some reviews said it fits perfect. It doesn't. The chest is perfect but the waist is so big the side panels can't velcro enough to make up for it. I have been watching this site for 4 months and they haven't got any new ones in. I hope they fix that soon.

nirzwan b. from BEL AIR, MD:
I really like how this vest makes me look. I've gotten many compliments. My waist is a 34 and my chest is a 44. I'm 200-210 lbs right now and 5'11". The large fits well although the waist adjustment is completely maxed out. Its as tight as it will go. I'll also mention that the armor on here is not so great. I'm really not sure what good it will be in an accident. The little reflective bits are nice and show up and it breathes well. It is really great in hot weather. Overall, I think its pretty great. Definitely a form over function piece.

Kerry C. from FRANKLIN, NC:
The vest is great. I'm 6'2", 175lbs and ordered a medium and it fits perfect. I use it for a little extra protection for summer riding when it's to hot for my armored jacket. I wear a large in the jacket and was kind of leary on ordering the medium size vest, but it was the right call. Fits no problem over a long sleeve or t-shirt.

Excellent bang for the buck. Been looking for something like this for years! Fit was spot on, excellent quality. Could use a couple more zippered pockets and a little more venting in the front. Very comfortable and light weight.

This vest is great! It's very comfortable while I'm riding my motorcycle. I have gotten so many compliments on this vest. It feels great. It's light and breathable. I wore it on a hot day 90 degrees out side not to include the heat from my motorcycle but I was nice and cool, no sweating just comfortabl! It's great! I'm thinking about get another one because the price was great too!

Samuel C. from WOODLAND HLS, CA:
Does what it needs to do especially in the summer 100° plus heat when a full jacket even mesh is suicide from dehydration. Daily use, has not fallen apart yet. Fast delivery, i'm on the west coast around LA. Street use only really wouldn't dare on a highway. Fits well, looks good, no issues even after a month of continuous 5-6 days a week use.

Anthony H. from HAMDEN, CT:
If you wear and XL size riding jacket then a size down should work well for your vest. I got my vest in a large and it fits comfortably with a tee shirt under it, and a bit more snug but not tight with a hoodie under it. This is a good looking vest comfortable to wear and breathes well. Wish there were more color options. Since my purchase I've had a few people ask me where they can get one, and my dad asked me as well so I ordered him one for Fathers Day. Great price. My only suggestions would be more color options, maybe pockets on the sides, and a bigger armor section in the back for a patch. Me and my buddies like this vest and will likely silk screen a smaller patch/logo on the upper back armor section. This vest fits our scene better as we like in a more urban area of Connecticut (New Haven/Bridgeport). Great vest, would recommend to all.

Linda S. from Romney, WV:
A great-looking vest, and nice padding. THE ONLY THING is make sure to use the size chart to get a vest that is going to fit. Order your vest 1 size bigger than the chart size says you wear; if you plan to wear other apparel under it that is heavier, GO BIGGER! But in all...very nice vest and light weight.

Brian L. from New Hope, PA:
Great Vest. Don't work out near as much as I used to but currently I'm 6'-1" 202lbs athletic build. 45" chest / 34" waist. I ordered the Large and the fit is perfect. (The waist may be a tiny bit larger than needed but I'm sure a median would be too tight in the chest. Large worksPERFECT for me - and "on a whim" I tried the vest OVER TOP OF my ICON Mil-Spec Stryker field armor (Has chest pad and spine protector - both on top of d30 padding) and the vest still fits. Snug but not uncomfortable. Nice to know in case I ever want to go "crazy overboard" with chest protection.

Love this vest, should be perfect for the hot summers here in Tennessee fit nice, lightweight, and padding everywhere you'd want it. Fit is a bit snug but that's ok. I'm a big fella, and the 5x fits perfectly. They do run a bit small I'd say. Overall, I'd say this is a solid purchase..

Peter M. from chattanooga, TN:
Well made, high quality----I normally wear a 52 Regular suit jacket and 38-40 suit pants---however with this product you need to order one to two sizes up. I normally wear XXL or XXXL in motorcycle jacket type product. This one is too tight in the chest and shoulder area. I have plenty of room in the belly/mid to lower torso. Again well made but if you are sort of "corn-fed" better order up. YES I looked at the size chart and I own four motorcycle jackets of leather and ballistic nylon--- GOOD but SMALL

Christian S. from MIAMI, FL:
Just got this vest and well, I will say for the price, it's good. Lightweight and breatheable and down in Miami where it can get HOT that comes in handy. While protection-wise it's definitely better than nothing or a t-shirt, but when compared to my good (and far more expensive) Cortech textile jacket, you can tell the material just does not compete! As far as sizing goes, i'm 6'2" 215 lbs, i have a 44" chest and wear size 36 waist pants. I purchased the XL and while the top (from sternum to shoulders) fit me perfectly, the bottom 1/2 fit like a parachute! I guess for XL they mean bellies! The velcro straps on the sides did nothing as I had to tighten them so much, i could tie a knot behind me with the straps. However, for the price, i took it to a great tailor that I use and for $20 he tapered the entire vest in and now it fits perfectly! So my total comes out to 60 bucks which is still not bad for the little bit of extra protection in the summer and it does look pretty good too!

Trevor P. from Pleasantville, Somewhere:
Nice vest gives you that piece of mind if the worst was to happen. Fits great, yep same comments about bullet proof. The high vis yellow can only be a good thing and its not too out there in your face. Zip pockets are great for my glasses as they sit centred not over your chest. Ordered from Australia and service and delivery was top notch. Even with freight included I could not get this gear for this price here. I will be back.......

Fits pretty true to size, I wear a large t-shirt and ordered and XL vest to leave room for a hoodie under it, fits great! I am 6' 196lbs with a 44' chest. Some people are stating they wear it as a stand alone item, I would def not wear this alone, It provides impact absorbtion, not abrasion resistance. Fits great under my jacket, causes some air leaks at higher speeds, I dont wear it on colder days.

Edward C. from Somerville, MA:
Very cheap vest, padding feels like it is made out of foam for padding? and while ordering, I highly suggest that the customer should order 1 size up because its fairly small (I am 5"8 and I ordered a Medium, barely reach my waist) It is what you pay for, so enjoy.

Kenneth from OVERLAND PARK, KS:
Excellent vest, especially at the low prices of $40. I ordered one size larger since I knew I would wear clothing underneath and since it wears like any other vest which rides up a little high at the belt. I use it to keep my tshirts from flapping in the wind and it works. But it's so much better. The pads aren't going to protect you but the vest is stylish, the yellow is discreet, and the mesh is comfortable. The zipper is rugged and reliable and the breast pockets are deep and positioned just right. My riding buddies saw the vest and ordered one the same day. Since the vest is plain, I was able to apply my favourite patches to some of the panels. Highly recommended!

Britt S. from Hewitt, TX:
List price $80 bucks? I don't think so. I'm the minority here and didn't care for this vest. I ordered XL and it was true to size but didn't like the look, especially in the back. I thought I'd be ok with the yellow, but I wasn't, felt like a bumble bee with the rolls on the back. Looked good from the front yet still was not impressed with the quality. Do not buy this for protection. I sent this back and paid $49 bucks more for a full leather jacket with level 3 armor, a much better deal than this vest. I gave this vest 3 stars, should have given it two. I've liked everything else from Xelement such as gloves, two pairs of boots, Rain suit, Jackets and pants, just not this vest.

I am sold on Xelement products. While the padding isn't very solid, it will offer some protection. I chose this for hot riding days, so the protection level had to be balanced with comfort level. It also looks really nice on too, according to my wife! The pockets are nice for phone, wallet, garage door opener etc. Touch your chest, the Batcave opens, and you're off!

It's nice, but it isn't neccessarily small. I ordered my size and its kinda big. I ordered a medium, and I'm 5-8 and 180. I decided to keep the medium instead of chancing going too small with a small. Not a ton of padding or anything, and I'll probably add more reflective material to the back.

David D. from Oklahoma City, OK:
Great vest. This is my first piece of armored gear, so i have nothing to compare it to... but it's light weight. Padding is where you want it to be. Very breathable. So far i've worn it in 95* and only got hot at red lights. One note on size- I read several reviews that this fits small. I disagree. I usually wear a large, or large-tall (6'3" 205lbs). I ordered XL and it is kinda loose. I know i'm kinda skinny tho. If you're a body builder (or dont drink lite beer), maybe go ahead and order up, but i like my bike vests/jackets not too loose.

6'2" 190 lbs athletic build. I ordered an XL based on the sizing chart and suggestions to order a size up, but the vest was way too big. Too late to return, I will most likely order a medium soon...seems like a great vest, although not really convicned of the protective quality of the padding and mesh on anything over 30ish mph.
