Review: As stated before in the previous reviews, this chest cover from Empire does a real good job at protecting chest, shoulder, upper arm, back area of the player. The whole set up is very lite weight and the jersey material is conformal to your body thus it wont shift/shafe like others that slide constantly.

The only issue I have had todate is the seam quality of the upper portions of the jersey body. Well, it is not the seams as much as the material of the jersey. When removing the jersey make sure to be gentle and not pull hard/strong form the top. With sweat, moisture etc, the material sticks abit and if pulled strongly it will rip the seam at the interface of the pads and the jersey. I pulled a corner of mine off a bit. I heard the rip and stoped pulling. Take your time while removing and it should be ok

Added based on PM question. Hopes it helps others:

The back protection is pretty adequate. It has one centerline tapered pad and then three or four? adjacent pads about an inch wide on either side of the center. These are ~12 inches in length. Below these there are two 6inch wide football shape pad on either side, ei one on each kidney with two horizontal pads above and below the football shape pads. The top shoulder pads come up and around the back.

My only issue has been the jersey material. It is simalar to that used in th WGP jerseys. It will take some rough gaming, just dont pull hard on them. "
Conclusion: Excellent product with great fit, comfort, very light weight and good protection. Will not shafe like other protectors.
