I'm a stout fellow, so I prefer the Arcem jacket for its wide outer collar; it frees up my mobility, not needing to layer neck protection, a thick jacket collar, and a mask bib tight to my neck. For a long time I thought that this big collar would replace neck protection for me, but after enough testing, I found there is the occasional possibility of a thrust from a high angle glancing down off the mask and over the edge of the collar. Fortunately this gorget is available. I ordered it and found it low-profile enough that I feel no additional thickness around my neck/shoulders. It bends well with my neck and doesn't "dig" anywhere, though some friends have said it looks like it might. It's comfortable, hard protection for the neck that doesnt get in the way. Can't beat that.

Solid light weight gorget. Quick to pop on and off. The default sizing works surprisingly well for my relatively thin neck (~38cm circ) with a little bit of breathing room. The liner feels it might be prone to damage in the long term, but it's easily replaceable.

I have not out it too the ultimate test yet, but it fits well is comfortable (for a gorget) and looks like it will do what it is supposed to do.
