Paintball
Experience:
More than 5 years
Marker Setup: Proto Matrix 2006
Empire Reloader B
Powerlyte Scepter barrel kit
Strengths: Comfortable, cool, doesn't restrict your movement.
Weaknesses: No shoulder padding, side padding, or lower abdomen padding.
Review: If you're looking for lots of padding, this product is not for you. But if you're looking for some padding, full mobility, and still keeping cool, then this product may be for you.

When I put this on, I don't even remember that I'm wearing it. It fits snug, and doesn't impair my mobility in the slightest bit. The tradeoff is that there is no upper-arm/shoulder padding like you get in the GroundPounder vest.

The padding thickness is definitely sufficient protection. It's a chest protector, so it protects your chest (and back). Chest and back bounces are common.

But be aware that there is very little padding on the sides: just a small patch on the lower rib. Since your jersey is vented on your sides also, this means that your sides will probably have no protection. This is great for keeping you cool though; the breezes just blow right through the sides of your jersey and this chest protector.

Also, there is no padding in the lower abdomen. If you're wearing a harness, you don't need any there. But if you're not wearing a harness, well, this chest protector is designed for wearing a harness.

It's also super long, so you don't have to worry about it coming untucked or anything. Be aware that this is a tight-fitting product; if you have issues with that (such as an "un-athletic build") then I don't know how comfortable it will be for you.

Wash it as "delicate" and drip dry. It will last.
Conclusion: I love it. It provides great chest and back protection, yet it stays cool and it doesn't impair my mobility at all.
