    Azonic Z5, Z6 armor users?

    Just purchased Azonic Z-6 body armor. Seems like it will keep me cool and comfortable but the material is so stretchy I wonder , in crash, the shoulder pads feel like they will push right off, no straps there either ? Anyone else notice this ? I have a RG Flack Jacket, also, and the material has no give, hotter and less comfortable.

    I have found that the armour is one size too big....if you have not worn the thing yet then I would try one size down....normally i wear an XXL and now i have an XL, but I think I can fit into a Large (who knows)....make sure you wear a shirt over the armour...it helps hold the armour in place

    Same with 661....order one size smaller. I actually like how snug RG feels but I agree it's definately hotter.

    I did just that - I originally ordered an XL but returned it for a large. Just seems like the shoulder pads need a strap placed around the arm pad. The L/XL RG jacket is super snug but rides up after every run which can be annoying. I want to try the Azonic but worry the shoulders pads will slip in a crash.

    The upper body part of the Z-6 runs large for sure. Maybe they're building armor to fit weight lifters? Get a snug fitting size and it feels much much better. Plus it's still way light and cool. The sizing is the reason I've got a brand new large I'd like to unload(see sig). The medium fits me great.

    just run a shirt/jersey over the top and the shoulder pads stay in place during a crash
