Not Bad

Took a crash the first time I wore it (not the worst crash, but went down hard going over an obstacle). It seems to provide protection where it is suppose to. However, still suffered some injury in the belly, because there is no protection there. Easy on and off and is comfortable on. I was worried it would be too constricting, but wearing it actually feels good in that it gives you a nice tight/protected feeling. For the price I recommend if looking for minimal upper body protection.

Great Protection

This core saver has great chest, back, and shoulder protection. It is slightly bulky, but not as bad as some. It does get a little hot in the summer months, but so does everything else you wear. It is easy to take on and off and does not impede movement.

Works Well

The core saver could use a bit more breathability. Fit is good and not too restrictive. Overall a great product and will serve its purpose.

Responded on

Agreed. Priced well also. Similar in appearance to, but far better padded than those undershirts you see kids playing football in these days. VERY light an nonrestrictive. I would do this, plus separate elbow guards over the full-length versions. Probably ideal in cooler weather, as it provides a nice layer of warmth, weather you want it or not

Protect the jelly roll.

It's not too hot when shuttling, stays in place when riding, and its easy to take off/put on. Plan on getting a neck brace ... hopping the removable plates help with a seamless integration.

Really like mine.

I purchased my core saver 3 years ago after a BMX crash that broke my collar bone, broke ribs, and punctured one of my lungs. One thing I noticed right off was that my collar bone broke right where my full face helmet touches my shoulder if I tilt my head. The foam cover over the shoulders seems to be doing it's job, as I have since taken multiple tumbles and most of the injuries have been to other areas. I did crack some ribs landing on my side, but that is the only injury to areas covered by the Core saver. As was mentioned previously, I wouldn't mind if there was some type of protection that covered further down the shoulder. Other than that I have been very happy with this purchase. Mine is starting to show some signs of wear, so I may be looking at replacing it in the near future, and would gladly buy another one.

Did not like this at all, Its annoying to put on, and just wearing it i can tell its not going to work for me. Will be sending it back ASAP.

-mesh bunches
-at the tightest setting the velcro belt isnt enough for me
-very short,
-back protector flexes way too much for comfort.

Id rather wear an old school bmx chest protector than this. This may work if you fall at slow speeds and tiny drops. But if your dropping over 10 ft, and/or racing. NO WAY is this for you!

I got this after an injury that could have been prevented from my 661 pressure suit. but because it was so hard to get on and off, I rarely used it. The Core Saver is definitely easier to get on and off and also compatible with a neck brace and has come in handy when i decided to hug a tree. But its not perfect (thus 4 stars) It would be great if the shoulder padding came down the sides of my shoulder a bit, but that is only minor

How well does this protect ribs?

Really well. Although and of course, this largely depends on your wreck. 661 has long been making some of the best protection out there. For how light is is on you, it's implaces the confidence of Robocop when you're riding. Hey, I'll take it...
