Review: Leatt 4.5 Chest Protector

2 years ago

A product the Transmoto team has tried, tested and would recommend to a mate.

WHAT IS IT?

It’s the top-of-the-line, CE-certified upper body armour from protection equipment specialist, Leatt. It’s available in white or black in sizes Large to 2XL.

WHY WE RATE IT?

Leatt’s high-density polyethylene hardshell is designed to offer broader torso protection than most chest protectors. Combine that with the shell’s cleverly designed articulating panels, the 3DF foam’s extra padding, and the adjustable shoulder and waist straps, and you’re left with one of the most protective, comfortable, non-restrictive and versatile armours on the market. And to allow it to be worn under or over your jersey and still remain compatible with your Leatt neckbrace, there’s a nifty removable front and rear plate, too. The next-level impact protection offered by this chest protector means it is a little heavier and offers less airflow than some of its rivals. But if you’re serious about getting premium protection, you’ll be happy to pay the premium price Leatt asks for this product.

PRICE

You can grab yourself one of these Leatt body armours for $229.95 from the Cassons website.
