What community has to say
Light weight and comfortable
I like the 661 Evo suit, I had the previous hard model and went to this version, but never really felt protected. I like the ability to move freely and felt like it was designed really well but I was just looking for more protection.
Brought the suit out to a gravel pit for some 11 foot drops in 80 degree weather, when riding downhill and standing around it was extremely comfortable, but got a little warm when climbing or riding though deep sand. After a couple of drops i pulled the chest and spine protector out of it and rode a couple of miles it was no hotter than a reg t-shirt. The arm and shoulder pads stay firmly in place while riding, the chest protector could be a little beefier but it will work. In all this suit is perfect for me, it is light enough without the chest and spine to ride cross country in yet has enough protection with the chest and spine to get stupid with.
Just got the Six Six One Evo and it looks good out of the box. I havent taken a hit with it yet but it should hold up well. I can see it maybe getting hot, the shirt could use some more venting. The one thing I dont like it the arms are tight. They are hard to get all the way up my forarms.

I would highly recommend contacting SixSixOne themselves:
Low profile, decent protection, but lacks venting
I've used this (size small) for a few months now and find it gets really hot wearing it, but don it anyways up to 90F in SoCal dry desert heat. I have moderately muscular arms, but they fit well in the sleeves, though it is a pain to get it off.
The chest protector is a bit too high for my taste. I had one crash where I wish it protected a part of my just a little lower, when I went over the bars due to my front washing out in a steep turn and bruised my ribs, landing on something (elbow, bike, biker behind me running me over, I'm not sure). The bruise is right where the elastic band velcros on the front. I felt the soreness from that for at least 2 weeks and going, especially noticeable when I get up from bed, sneeze, cough, do pull-ups, sit-ups, etc.
The shoulder protection is a little lacking. It only protects the side and not the front or top. My Vapor armor protected the top and a bit of the front, but it was way too bulky. Don't go leaning around corners too close on the inside when there are trees on the inside... that happened to me before and my shoulder ached for months. It wasn't even an impact strong enough to that knock me off my bike or even off course; it just shocked me back upright and slowed me down some.
The best thing about this is that it's low profile. Some can't even tell I'm wearing armor under my jersey, which is what I was kind of after, since my vapor armor made me look like a linebacker or stormtrooper, if I wore it under my jersey, as some of my friends would say. The spine protector is a good thing too--I did a roll onto some rocks and hardly felt a thing. I just laid there on my back looking up after coming to a stop after my roll, kind of comfortable, on top of rocks.
As for venting, my 661 Vapor armor had tons of it. I kind of miss that feeling of cool air just being rammed in. The only way to get air with this is to relax my upper, and try to let my shirt and armor hang down a little, so air comes in from the neckline. Solid foam doesn't do much in terms of venting, but at least it soaks up the resulting sweat very well. I go through my water a lot faster and feel the heat strain on climbs with this on. I'd complain about the heat when it's over 90F either way, so depending on the ride, I might wear it, but wish for the lower profile arms of this with something better in front on the chest. A vapor chest guard with the rest being the same maybe?
