    Dianese Rhyolite Vest

    Does anyone know if these are leatt compatible?

    Can anyone comment on the fit and sizing? What about quality?

    Not about Leatt, but quality is excellent and it is a nice compromise between protection and mobility.

    Dianese Rhyolite Vest

    I used the poc body armor last season but want something less bulky/restrictive for this season. The rhyolite looks like it fits the bill, just need to be sure my leatt will work with it.

    Doesn't look like it'll fit with your neck brace. The Dainese spine protector goes up to the base of the neck.

    Dianese Rhyolite Vest

    When I first tried it on I only had the two smallest leatt fasteners to change the diameter of the brace. I forgot there was another set of bigger ones cause I couldn't find them. I just found the biggest ones, put them on the brace and it works. No problems. Snug but it works.

    To the guys who are already using the vest, does it stretch out any after continued use? It not overly tight but it would feel better stretched out a little. I'm afraid to exchange it for a L cause I think that would be too loose.

    Hey dude - i'm in between a large and a medium. I'm 6'0 at 170lbs Not super girthy in the chest area. You have a medium and it's kind of snug? What are your dimensions?
