RockGardn Flak Jacket Body Armor: Two components for protection options.
The RockGardn Flak Jacket body armor is made of two components: The Flak Jacket and the Flak Vest. The Flak vest protects your chest, sides and back, and includes a removable kidney strap. The chest pad is removable when deemed unnecessary, and replaced by an included halter strap. The Flak Jacket offers hard shell shoulder, bicep, elbow, and forearm protection, and is not lacking for adjustment straps. Worn separately or combined, the Flak offers mountain bike and bmx riders, and ski/snowboarders, professional-grade protection with lots of options for fit and function.

Fit Notes If your chest measurement is on the dividing line (41 inches/ 104 cm), look at your basic body shape. Do you have a "V" shaped torso? Go for the S/M. If you have a straighter torso, especially with wide shoulders and/or big biceps, go with the L/XL. The 6-segment back protector, offered here, is intended for those with a height between 5'9" to 6'1" (179 cm to 186 cm). Total length of the 6-segment back protector is 22 inches/ 56 cm.
