This chest armor is designed for jackets that specify pockets for the Double Chest 2 piece protector inserts. This armor is larger than the the Pro-Armor inserts, so they are not interchangeable in the same jacket. Please refer to the Dainese’s jacket description to know kind of chest order to buy.
Each chest protector piece measures 11 1/2” tall and 7 1/2” wide. The thickness is approximately 7.8” at the thickest point in the middle, but tapers down toward the edges.
Our Two Cents
The Dainese Double Chest 2 piece protector kit consists of two chest protectors. These protectors fit into the chest pockets provided in select Dainese jackets. The chest armor is rated CE level. 1. The protectors are made of a hard plastic layer stitched down over a dense foam material. Some people prefer a “hard shell” design like this as it ill be more protective of an impact in a very localized area (picture falling on a rock or a bike part). The hard shell will act to disperse the energy of an impact over a wider area. Compared to all the insertable chest armor we sell, this feels like the most robust.
Dainese says: Chest protector certified as per level 1 Pr-En 1621.3 standards The Double Chest Men’s version consists of an ergonomic corrugated front plate specially designed to ensure the controlled dispersion of energy. The inner core of the protector is made from Crash Absorb® that has been specially shaped for maximum energy absorption. The side in contact with the skin is made from a material known as Carezza which, along with precisely positioned padding, provides great comfort.
