The Airfit manages to do what few MX armor products can – it doesn’t make you look like a Power Ranger. At first I wasn’t sure if this was actually suitable to be used as MX armor, but based on what people are saying it seems like it will work. In fact, the CE certification on this is pretty high. In terms of the front and back armor, the ratings are as high as the standards allow, so that’s good.
It uses a special foam to decrease the weight and wicks away moisture, so the fact that it’s all one piece isn’t such a big deal. Apparently it will also work with a neck brace if you remove some of the armor.
It’s worth mentioning that this is a garment that uses 3DF material. This is a soft armor that hardens on impact, which is pretty cool and futuristic. It also makes it easier to move around in compared to hard armor.
People who have bought the AirFit also comment on the actual quality of construction, which is very good. At about 250 bucks I think this is an excellent product.
So, what can I say? I’d buy this.
