Frankwrote a review of Race Face Flank Core Protection on August 19, 2019
Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
I've used it twice and have yet to fallen on it. For starters sizing is definitely on the European side of things and not cut for the super size me body habitus. I am 5'10" 157 and a size M fits well. The fabric breathes and wicks very well but the back D30 doesn't breath well--it's body armor I don't expect miracles. I find the fabric to be comfortable and in some way similar to under armour fabric. It's nice being to choose what elements you want in the shirt as far removing the spine/or shoulders. the length of protection is shorter than the alpine stars paragon or the Ion scrub amp but it is the same length of the back panel found in the Camelbak TORO. The sternum pad is nice. Overall pleased with it and will keep.
