    IMG_7899.JPG IMG_7898.JPG Cost me $220 around 2 months ago. Anyone want to buy it for 1/2 price? I've used it 3-4 times.
    Looks almost new except for a slight Hollister Hills brown clay/mud stain on the white plastic chest protector. A scrubby will take it out. I live in Menlo Park. I can ship if you pay the shipping cost. I'm often at Hollister Hills on Saturdays.
    The reviews on this are very positive, but this is not for me. I have everything except the original packing.
    The bite valve was swapped out, but I will replace it w/ the original.

    What didn't you like about it? I've been thinking about upgrading my camelback and chest protector for something like this.

    My only real issue is that there isn't as much frontal real estate as a roost guard. This Leatt protects your rib cage and back, which is fine, but I use that extra roost guard space to hold things like my giant ass Hollister Hills volunteer radio ( it's big and heavy) w/ separate microphone, a zip pocket for quick access to frequently used tools, another pocket for snacks, etc. I often have the most complete tool kit of my usual riding companions, so the back pack is a bit tight for all extra tools, etc. A nit pick is the water bladder gives a slight chemical taste if you leave water in there over a week, but not an issue if less then 2-3 days. I have an older unit that is worn, but I've modified it enough that it suits me perfectly.
    If you search reviews, many people give this 5 out of 5 stars.
