Body armor is very personal: you have to find the kit that fits your specific body shape and riding style. For us, this is it. We love the Forcefield ADV harness because it’s simply the best moldable, soft-armor pressure suit we’ve ever seen. There’s nothing else like it. You can wear this kit for years on both singletrack and ADV trips, crashing over and over in it, and simply spraying it off with a hose when it’s dirty.
In that brief second of awareness when you realize you’re flying over the handlebars: this is the armor you’ll be glad to have on.
Wanted to try this product out after seeing you guys using it. Price was reasonable, delivery was great, size per charts fit correctly, now I need to get out in the backcountry to try it out. If only the fires can get under control. You guys are top drawer.
Thanks Mosko Moto, you practice what you preach.
Very protective, just what I wanted
Good product. Good service.
This review is more about exceptional customer service than the Forcefield EX, although the Forcefield is an amazing product for the amount of protection it provides and how comfortable it feels while riding. I had originally ordered the incorrect size for an upcoming event and needed to make a modification to my order. I sent Mosko an email and Sarah followed up immediately. I explained that I needed a different size; she checked and verified that my original order hadn’t shipped yet fortunately. She canceled the original order, issued a refund, ordered the correct size, and asked her warehouse folks to ship the order that same day so I could receive the protective harness in time. This type of care is hard to come by these days and I can recommend doing business with Mosko without any hesitation.
If you're paranoid of breaking all your bones in a motorcycle accident, this is the armor rig to get. The biggest, baddest vest I could find. CE impact test results are 6.2, 7.0, and 16.6 kN for chest, back, and arm protectors respectively (if that matters to you).
The cool thing about this armor system is the highly customizable fit thanks to flexible armor and velcro holding everything together. Trust the sizing chart-- I wear size L t-shirts, but went with an M according to the chart and it fit me perfectly. In fact, I'm 5'9" and ~185lbs, and I'd bet you could be at least 220 before seeing fitment issues with a size M-- I've got plenty of room to spare.
I do have a few minor gripes. Firstly, all the velcro makes it a bit of a pain to take off and put on vs buckles/cinches. Also, the armor is flexible, but not nearly to the same degree as D3O. This is only really noticeable on the arms, where mobility is a tad impacted by the stiff pads, but is easily fixed by only wearing/buying the chest/back portion.
For the generally moderate dualsporting I do, this armor isn't just overkill-- It's like duck hunting with an AA gun. Ultimately though, every piece of motorcycle gear is overkill. Until, suddenly and unexpectedly, it isn't.
