You need to figure out the neck brace arrangement with your high roller jacket.

I did. I just need to use the long middle pieces.

I did for the one weekend I have used the Airfit. I have not had too many washings yet, but the pads to come out.

I read your review and just got one. I tried it on and feels really light. I'll probably put a wool layer underneath and layer up on top if I need to. My old one is a Acerbis Koerta. It is bulky and I put 25 lbs since I got that one. I can not wear anything on it. It restricts my movement. So this review came in the best time.
Thanks Aaron.

TravelToad- The front and back pads are three layers of material. Are these permanently bonded into one piece or can you use two or just one in order to adjust the bulkiness? I want armor for downhill skiing and don't need super padding (I hope) but everything else I've looked at was too thick and bulky to fit under a ski jacket.

And I've busted ribs a few times and really want the best pads there. This doesn't look like they put the pads in the right place for ribs, they look too low, like they cover the top of your hips but not the ribs. If you fell on your elbow (which I seem to do all the time) would these pads protect your ribs? BTW- falling on your elbow is underrated: yeah you might break ribs but you don't break your collarbone.

This pic of the suit on the mannequin shows the side really well and those aren't rib pads, they look like hip bone pads.

Thanks for the detailed write up.

The pictures show the difference:

Every retail site shows things a little different so you can look at some others until you see it clearly. The 3DF doesn't say CE Level 2 rating and the Air does. And the Air has a pad where the Leatt brace will sit on your chest.

The 3DF does say CE Level 2 on chest and back, just not on the elbows where the air fit does have Level 1.

But is the 3DF smaller and does it fit the body better? or is the size and the weight the same one both? for me, it looks like the 3DF fits better and is smaller than the airfit, but is that true?

Hey Aaron,

I dont know who to sue now, you or Leatt. I got mine right after reading your review. It looked pretty good. Light weight but protective and lots of air flow.
I was down in Baja last weekend and had a chance to try it on. It was almost perfect. Very light, I didnt even knew it was on, great air flow and very very comfortable.
But the only time I went down on deep sand, guess what happened??? My handlebar struck me right on the top chest area, where there is "NO" protection at all. It hurts like m... f...
Worst part is I am still trying to recover a severe flu so I am constantly coughing. And when I cough, my chest feels like it's going to rip apart.
I went down quite a bit but never hit that part of my body before. Now when I think about it, it is pretty much the only spot with no protection. I think they should definitely put some armor up there as well. That small patch of neoprene looking piece is useless. If I had a real armor there, it wouldn't hurt that much.
Well.... It's still great to have a light weight armor that I can use year around. I just need a way to fix that upper chest issue.

Ersin,

Any plans to get a neck brace? I saw that pic of you flying through the air on your 990.

Dudeeeee..... Dont put it on my mind. I dont like neck braces. I know i know they are for safety, etc. but I try not to go that fast to need it.
My chest still hurts btw... :(

Well, definitely sue Aaron then.

I've had good luck with my Airfit so far but it's still a little chilly out. I'm probably a little better protected with bulkier/warmer armor and gear (duh) but this is the compromise I've been looking for in warmer weather. It's made to compliment a Leatt brace, but I'm lacking in that department as well. I wonder if the coverage of the brace would have helped in your get off?
