Period of

Products Used:
Marker Setup: DM6 staright out of the box
Strengths: Looks kind of cool.
Very comfortable
Weaknesses: This thing is really weak. The material it is made of isn't particularly durable.
Review: I bought this vest because I was looking for some chest protectiona nd thought this would make me look like Batman. When I finally got it, I was extremely disappointed in the durability of this item. The material is very light and the cushioning is a extremely soft foam. While this is very comfortable, the foam is so soft that it doesn't feel like you're being protected anymore than just wearing a sweatshirt. The nylon body (I think nylon) is also very fragile. It is vented to keep you cool but in just pulling off the shirt I could feel how it was starting to strain. I'm actually concerned about how this vest would hold up after more than 2 or so washings.
Conclusion: I just expected more...looks great though.
5 out of 10

If the padding is "so soft," doesn't that suggest that you would have more ball bounces? I was hoping you could let us know how well the armor actually worked at protecting you.

This is meant to be worn under something like a Jersey. This review is completely WRONG

The products looks great on the web and even better in person. I saw this in the store and was very impressed with the quality of the material. It's nothing like the empire ground pounder chest protector b/c it's much better! I can't believe anyone would question the quality of this Proto product.

Considering all the good stuff this reviewer said about the product, I'm surprised the review wasn't a 7 or 8. 5 is a bit on the low side.

According to what I could tell from the review, you haven't used it for a game yet, so why question it? And, you don't have much experience yet.

Also, who would questioin the quality of a Proto product?
