“If you’re like me and simply hate wearing a body protector then this is the one for you – you quickly forget you’ve got it on!
“As the manufacturer says it is ultra lightweight and even in the warmest of weather I found I stayed cool when wearing it which really impressed me. I’ve also worn this under a lightweight-riding jacket and it was hard to tell I had it on. It doesn’t look bulky or unflattering.
"This is the first body protector I’ve had that zips up, which is great. The zip front makes it easy to do up and it’s also easily adjustable if you need to make any tweaks to the fit.
"All the features Racesafe have added for flexibility really do the job as it’s easy to move in and super comfy. There’s really no excuse not to wear it. I can’t fault it!”
