I was thinking about picking up a No Fear Stratos chest protector. Apparently, they are new.

Anyone use one yet? Any comments on the fit, durability, craftsmanship, etc are appreciated. Thanks!

Are they out yet? I know Travis was testing one earlier this year, but that is the last I've heard.

I just got one last week. It's pretty good. A little on the short side, but it's comfy and the shoulder protection seems pretty good (its got the 'floating' mesh under the hard plastic shoulder). The clear plastic seems to scratch pretty easy, though. Anyone else with a clear protector? Wonder if they all scratch easy. Overall quality of the buckles, etc. is excellent.

I've got a clear HRP Flash-Jak, it scratches fairly easily but it's almost 4 years old now and it still looks pretty good.

I've got one, and after adjusting the straps, find it to be quite comfortable. Pretty careless when cleaning it, and the clear plastic still looks pretty good to me. I'm not particularly tall, and the length seems fine. A friend who is over 6 feet just got one as well, and he's real happy with it. This is the first chest protector I've owned, so no comparison possible, but it fits, is comfortable, and looks fine.

I found one at a local dealer. They only had one and it happened to be my size, so I tried it on. It fits great for me (6'@135) Nice shoulder coverage. I love it, it looks awesome. I didnt get it though...:( I was there for parts for my motorcycle, and I figured a cp wont do any good if i dont have a bike to ride!:confused:
