Review: The Good:
Design on this is very good, easy to move. very light weight(maybe to light), cant even tell the difference betweend wearing this, t shirt or even a big shirt. like the fact that its form fitting and it breaths, so you dont keep the botty heat in or fog up your goggles. had no problems with either.

The Bad:
ok weakness, i think it should have sleeves at least quarter or little longer. although you are able to move very easy in it. the patting is still a little to weak, i have gotten shot square on both the chest and back. both still hurt pretty good, the pain is no big deal to me, that is not what i bought it for. I really bought it for because i like playing the game. but showing up at the office or to customer with welts or bruises dont really look to good. I bought it to try and prevent the welts, but that has not been accomplished by this product.
Conclusion: I am giving this a 5 becuase of the design and mobility. but for doing its actual purpose it lacks on that half of the job. oh and whats up with nobody having wash and care on any of their products.
Rating:
5 out of 10

the main purpose of some "protectors" is in fact getting bounces, such as this protector is. By using compressed padding that is softer than you are... or should be, it's more prone to catching balls instead of breaking them. Also - lack of sleeves, this is a chest protector, not a jersey, or a "chest, elbow, forearm protector"

Azmodon's right. These things are meant as a paintball version of a kevlar vest- if the ball doesn't break, you're not out.

If you're looking to prevent welts, I'd advise you go out and buy a more heavily padded Tactical vest- the sort used by outdoor players. To my knowledge, they won't bounce any paintballs, but the ref will have to tell you that you've been hit.
