Designed to fit players of all sizes, the GameFace chest protector (DMCHP) is constructed of flexible ventilated nylon panels, suspended in a lightweight mesh vest and features adjustable hooks and loop straps. Machine washable. Great for abosrbing the impact of high-velocity paintballs
The Game Face Chest Protector is older, so while it may be available used and in a few cases new, it is not commonly available anymore.
After being shot point blank in the chest the last time I paintball, my doctor said I'd better get some protection. So, I looked around and found this vest. I had to buy it online because my local store didn't carry the brand. The vest provides really good protection. I got shot up pretty bad but no pain nor welts on my body. It looks bulky but you won't have any problem moving around. The only time when I realized I was hit was when I felt a thud on my back (no pain either). Good vest.
Good product. Better than the other wimpy neoprin vests.
Covers both front and back
Purchased mine for $13.00. Vest has a mess interior and exterier which allows for good ventilation. Padding is contained inside mess and is cut into small plates that bend and conform to your body. I noticed no problem with mobility. I have noticed it takes all the sting out of being hit in those sensitive areas. But, you do know you've taken a hit. Does what it should!
It's only short coming is that it doesn't cover below the belly botton on the front and about 5 fingers above the belt in back (i'm a big guy), but you fanny pack or pod hauler should cover the open areas.
I'd buy it again, even at $34

-20oz/12oz Pure Energy CO2 tank
-Extreme Rage 200 round hopper
-J&J 16 Inch Ceramic Barrel
-Covers the right areas
-Can still breath
I've played 3 days and probably 4-5 games each day with this thing, and it sure hasn't failed to protect me. I have to say, I can barely feel anything when I get hit on the chest or back, and its suprising because the chest protector is so light.
If you hate getting hit or you need an idea to persuade your parents to let you paintball (my case), get this chest protector...it's fricken sweet/
Light, cool, easy to move around with, don't feel a thing.
I love this little thing its great for when my buddys decide to go automatic on me. My friends called me a wimp for wearing it. but when they shot me 8 times in the back and I turned around and lit them all up, they told me they had ordered one from cabelas the very next day.
Great little thing, great for woodsball, a little big for tourney play though
Tippman model 98 all stock exept for a 16" 32degrees nyte stick and 32* drop big drop W/ on/off
Breathes very well
conforms to your body
This thing is great in the summer. It is not made from a thick layer of neoprene like the other procucts. Instead it has one layer of mesh and another layer of cotton surrounding a bunch of thin plastic pannels. I only tryed it once beacuse as i mentioned im a big guy and this thing just is not big enough for me. It fits my wife and my 15 year old great. But the thing realy only comes down to just over my belly button so it realy isnt all that comfortable for me. This thing should come in sizes so big people can use them too. otherwise it just keeps riding up and you end up pulling it back down through the whole game beacuse it is pushing up on your mask
This is the best chest protector on the market. But do not buy it if you are over 200 lbs. Cuz it will not fit right.

Primary Marker: Tippmann 98 Custom, Pro Team Commando F/X kit (14 inch barrel, adjustable stock), Dark Horizon Titanium Lite Hammer, custom trigger sear spring, Cyclone Feed hopper, BossMan M16 mag kit - I've never had a ball chop in my Tippy.
It is light and flexable.
It can ride up at times. No camo option offered.
I fall into the category of "better safe than sorry" when it comes to paintball. I'm well aware of those who are of the opinion that "real" players don't wear protection and only wimps can't take a hit.
Whatever floats yer boat...
This vest is well designed. The panels are flexible and allow for good movement. The "armor plates" have holes in them to allow the vest to breath. I have only used it on one occasion so far, since I bought it. On that particular weekend it was pretty hot out. I wore the vest the whole time and while I was warm, I was not so uncomfortable that I had to take it off. I had far more irritation from fogging goggles than I did the vest.
Oddly enough, that weekend I did not get hit in the chest or back! I had all shoulder, leg, mask or marker hits. Weird!
I will update my review when I get a chance to test it out more this summer. I never thought I would find myself wishing to take a chest hit lol!
My only complaint was that it can ride up on you a little when crouched down... give it a quick tug and it is back where it belongs.
The protector does not come all the way down on the lower back, but I wear my paintball pod carrier on my waist... so that doesn't bother me. Its actually a benefit because the vest would interfere with the pod carrier if it was lower, and probably would restrict movement.
One other thing I noted, was the velcro strapping is sized more for a bigger person. I'm not skinny, 38/40 inch waistline, and I still have to pull the velcro straps almost to the very end of their length, to get the vest snug enough on my chest. Not a real big deal, better than having them too short I guess. it did not hinder the fit or function of the vest, and I don't think someone smaller than myself would have trouble wearing it.
Overall I give the Game Face Chest Protector a "go get it and wear it" recommendation. It is very well suited for woodsball, and I will wear it every time I play. It gives me a feeling of confidence and in my opinion, adds to the realism of woodsball. It gets a 9 however because it does ride up once in a while.

I love this vest. When you're playing, people do notice it, you cant really hide it under your Jersey. It takes away almost all of the sting of the paintball. Overall I think this is a great buy. I got it for 25 dollars. Not bad. And compared to other Sh***Y vests this one is great
Overall a very good product for its price, compared to some other expensive stuff. It is a little short, but your pack should cover that area mostly. It breaths great i never get hot, it doesnt restrict movement at all. The velcro straps are great for any size, and im a very big guy.

I bought this chest protecter right after i started playing because the first time i was hit it hurt like hell (i later found out i was shot with the velocity set to 450). i found that this vest took all pain out of being hit but you still felt that hit. it is very comfortable and breaths easily. the only prolem i had with it was if you lift both your sholders it will move up a bit but not to much. also when you sit some of the platings stick outand make your shirt look all pointy.
I highly recomend this chest protect to anyone who feels that they need one. i give it a
