Is the Forcefield Harness Adventure the same as the Harness Elite?
Can the sleeves on the Harness Adventure be removed to make it the same product as the Harness Elite? I see it is $100 more and wanted to know if it is basically the same vest but also includes the shoulder & arm protection. I want to know if I can use the Adventure without the sleeves.
You can wear it as a Chest/Back protector only if you want. Just undo the velcro straps of the shoulder pads and it's converted to a vest only configuration.
I wear mine 90% of the time it really is very comfortable armor on the bike. Warm on hot days though.
Just a word of advice, it does "Fill" up the jacket fit quite a bit. That is,, If you own or wear a "European" cut type of jacket the Forcefield gear may make the jackets sizing too small. My Firstgear Teton XL is almost too small when wearing the Forcefield armor. Especially in the sleeves when wearing the elbow/arm protection.
I have taken a couple of slow speed falls in rocky, mountain, riding, and I came up without a bruise. This stuff works as advertised.
I think for the $350 I invested,, it was well worth every penny. I think it's a better value than the "Elite" as you get the shoulder and elbow pads also. I don't use the armor that came in my Latitude since I have the Forcefield gear now.
