    Strength:

    It protects my body. Love the spine protection, perfect size. It is very comfterable and breaths nicely.

    Weakness:

    I had to buy more Velcro in order to tighten down enough. With a full face helmet you cannot look up far enough to see the sky. I do not see this as a weakness considering I do not need to see up.

    Overall I did a lot of research and this was the best one. It breaths nicely and I do not over heat. I wear a XL jersey over the top of it because it looks better and slides nicely when you hit the ground. Other then that I feel very comfortable and my mind is free of thinking about wrecking because I know every time I do I can jump back up and continue riding. I get some crap for wearing it every once in a while but when I wreck I do not like it to ruin my whole trip.

    If you are riding hard enough I would suggest some knee/shin guards and some crash shorts from sixsixone.

    Strength:

    Fits tight, no broken bones with it

    Weakness:

    Elbows and forearms will not stay.

    I wish so bad the elbows and forearms would stay put. Every time I crash my elbow feels like I'm not wearing pads at all. I'm gonna cut em off below the shoulder pads and wear separate elbow pads. I probably would have gotten a short sleeve version.

    Strength:

    Well priced/good value, excellent arm and chest padding, breathable, adjustable

    Weakness:

    Shoulder cups take adjustment to get a good fit, spine protector a little lightweight compared to Dianese.

    Ok, so first, this is a great peice of kit for the money. Is it perfect? No. Is it good value? Yup. If you have heaps of cash and race all the time then you should look at the Dianese Saftey Jacket as well - the fit seemed to be better, it is cooler (mesh fabric), and the spine protection is definately superior.

    HOWEVER... this has top notch arm and chest armour (as good / better than Dianese)good build and ok fit...and wins hands down on the value front... especially if you are a casual user/abuser. 4 for performance but a big 5+ for value.

    And finally - dunno how many pies that other guy was eating, but the sizes seem standard. I take a medium in everything, and got a medium in this. Large was too big by far (2003 model)

    F*ckin awesome!!! buy it if you like downhill or your a really good freerider. The price difference from a dainese safety jacket to the 661 pressure suit isn't worth the extra money unless you have alot of money....go and get one!!

    Strength:

    Excellent protection, well made, fit me better than the Rockgardn (which is almost identical, but not quite).

    Weakness:

    Unbearably hot, so hot I had to buy the Azonic (not nearly as much protection, but SO much cooler) for the summer months. There just isn't any airflow through the fabric.

    A very nice jacket if cooler than 70 degrees out, definitely recommend. Would give it five flaming squirrels if it wasn't for the overheating factor.

    Strength:

    Good ventilation, nice pads, great spine protection.

    Weakness:

    Arm pads don't sit well over elbow.

    This is a great chest protector for the money. The only thing I don't like about it is that the pads don't sit well over my elbows. I have to twist the pads, therefore having to twist the mess in order to sit the pads properly. Does anyone have that same problem? or is that just me. If I don't twist them, the arm pads sit ontop of my arms and not over my elbows. Other than that, I like the product overall

    Strength:

    looks good, fits well in the arms, removable spine comfortable, breathable

    Weakness:

    too loose in the chest area, little thumb loop is annoying and uncomforable

    I am reviewing the pressure suit with the yellow trim (If there is any differance)

    A tip for getting the arms to fit better:

    Unloop the small strap that holds the elbow pad to the upper arm pad. take the forearm strap put it through the loop. wrap the small strap around the outsde of your arm and attact the large forearm strap to it. this pulls your elbow into the pads better.

    overall a prett good set of pads for the money. the fit is a little weird. the arms are small and the chest pad is too big.
    The removable spine is nice for less demanding rides or a hot day.
    I give this product a 5 for value and a 4 overall because of the weird sizing

    Strength:

    Price. Light weight, good ventilation & protection

    Weakness:

    Spine plate sits a bit too high - it can bump into the back of your helmet or neck. The body of the suit consequently seemed a little short, while the arms were easily long enough.

    ***SP-1 PRESSURE SUIT***
    A great, light & well ventilated jacket offering reasonably good protection. It has only slightly less protection than the full 661 pressure suit - ie it doesn't have a solid chest plate, and a single pad less on the upper arm.

    Good for a weekend warrior & occasional user like myself.

    Strength:

    Great protection, mobility, breathability, looks sweet!

    Weakness:

    Pushes my gloves down a bit but no big deal.

    **this review is for the 08 full pressure suit**

    Great product so far, comfortable, light, breathes well, looks good and over it just feels great.

    This gives you an instant confidence boost, my first day using it and I was going faster and trying bigger stuff. I recommend!
