Bought this chest protector and returned it. It is very good quality and would definitely provide great protection, but it is very bulky and cumbersome. When you have it on with or without the bicep guards, it is difficult to maneuver your arms around to adjust the straps and to get your shirt on. The bicep guards hang on the side of your arms and not on your biceps because of the placement of the buckle that connects the guards to the chest protector. I'm 6'0" with long arms, and the bicep guards went all the way down to my elbows. If you don't have a loose shirt, they will stick out of the bottom of your sleeves. The reviews on this chest protector were very intriguing, which prompted me to buy it, but I'm returning it for the reasons above. I'd suggest you find one to try on and test out before you buy it.
