It takes a lot to stay safe when you are riding hard and going big and the Sixsixone Vapor protection suit provides all the safety you need. Sixsixone piled on the safety features in the Vapor suit, starting with the vented injection-molded shoulder cups and elbow/forearm guards. At the back of the Vapor suit is a CE approved articulating back plate armor that also has built-in exhaust vents. The back plate armor can be removed for maintenance or riding needs. The vented polyurethane chest plate, along with the other guards, is backed with a perforated EVA that allows the Vapor suit to breathe easy. Vented mesh main body construction continues to allow the Vapor suit to let in the fresh air and exhaust the hot air. Adjustable Velcro® straps at the shoulders and forearms keep the Vapor suit's padding in position. Sixsixone incorporated a support belt into the Vapor suit for additional protection.

"I just got this as a christmas present and I just tried it on and this thing makes me feel like a tank. The Back brace is not as stiff as I would like but overall this thing is nice no need for a chest protector. My only concern is the fit with a neck brace."
