I like this chest protector a lot, it helps a lot with getting hit in the back and chest. ill give you an exaple. it was one on three and who was on the one man team?... yep you guesed it... me. so im there and i get one out, and then i get hit in the arm. no big deal so im walking off, and 10 seconds later i get hit in the back i counted 23 times. yeah and the only ones to make a bruise where the ones on the back of my arms and my legs. the only thing i dont like about this thing is that it doesnt fit the greatest, and it rides up your chest and that gets annoying sometimes.
