Jon (United Kingdom) Used for 1 week or less
I ordered the medium size being 5ft 6in with 38 inch chest. The jacket was rather tight on the chest. I used it with the DSH 100 Adult - Black M shorts for a snowboarding holiday. The website says they are designed to be worn together, however I found that the lower back protection of the jacket clashed with the coccyx protector of the shorts pushing the shorts down and the jacket up. I did have a small fall whist scooting my snowboard toward a chair lift, I fell over doing about walking pace and landed on my chest, the jacket offered very little protection, if any at all and I still damaged a rib (possible fracture). The pads in the chest protection rub your chest when sitting, getting up and lowering which you do a lot on a snowboard, it also chafed around the arm holes. The hook and loop fastening waste strap is a pain as it just stuck to the inside of my boarding pants. Overall I would not advise anyone to buy this product.
