OK, follow along with us here, the Rockgardn Flak Jacket Base body armor is one of those cool, clever finds that work fantastic, but are hard to explain. The Flak Jacket Base is a very lightweight, breathable, comfortable base layer with hard elbow elbow and shoulder guards. This piece can be easily worn under your jersey, and combined with your favorite chest / back protector over it.
By separating these two pieces, you get 10x more ventilation, stretch, freedom of movement, and comfort, and FULL Leatt compatibility
- without sacrificing protection. It sounds confusing, but it works absolutely terrific.
The Base hosts the shoulder, bicep, elbow and forearm guard protection, as well as shoulder adjustment straps. Cheater straps between the bicep and elbow pads allow for more exact positioning of the elbow/forearm guard protection. Upper chest features a cut-in of Spandex mesh for added comfort when worn directly against the skin. Adjustable shoulder straps allow you to position the back and chest to your exact body shape.
Our favorite combo is to wear the Rockgardn base under the jersey, with the Leatt Adventure Body Vest Lite
over it. The protection offered by this combo is as good as any body armor, yet it feels lighter, more breathable, and more comfortable. The difference is huge. The concept of us pushing these two items is a marketing train wreck, but the result is outstanding.
