Been using it for three months. Ride a Trek Stache 8 29er hard tail. Hard pack single track with lots small trees and lots of turns. I tend to crash a lot and have blown up both my sholders. Two main ways is from clipping trees with a sholder or doing face plant belly flop landings where the collar bone and top of sholder drive into the turf.
Impact protection is excellent with for tree clips and ribs. Fore those face down sholder plants not very good. The top of the sholder pad provides very little protection for the top outside area where the collar bone and sholder meet. This knobby bone area will take a hard shot every time. Both my sholders have been repeatedly injured because the pads did not provide adequite protection with that type of fall impact.
Otherwise excellent quality construction and durability. After numerous hard crashes no excessive wear or tear. Construction and materials are solid. Sad part is it is dang hard to sleep with beat up sholders.
