How much protection does the elbow armor offer?
I’m 5’7” and 155lbs. I’ve tried the small with armor and it’s a tight but comfortable fit. Can’t really comment on on-the-bike feel.
I noticed the elbow armor doesn’t really cover as much of the forearm as most other jackets seem to do. The armor pocket seems tight and there isn’t really much space for the armor to shift elsewhere. It really just feels like the pocket isn’t deep enough to reach more than 2in past the elbow. On the other hand, the upper arm is covered almost 50%. Thoughts?
