The Raven OBG neck protector is a great piece of protection. No one likes to be shot in the neck. This neck protector actually covers a larger percentage of your neck compared to others on the market. The width of the neoprene actually conforms to the curvature of your neck & provides some cover up to your clavicles. The OBG is leaps & bounds ahead of my old neck guard which was by Ronin Gear. That neck protector was utter garbage because it was so stiff. It actually felt more like a neck brace which immobilized you than protected you. Back to the OBG now. Since Raven was purchased by Kingman several years ago, the OBG neck protector isn't as easy to find as it used to be. However, if you're in the market for a well-ventilated & excellent neck protector; grab one if you can find one.
Buy it if you can find it.

Protects every inch of your neck
A little bulky
It's a neck protector. A huge neck protector. It covers my entire neck. The only drawbacks are these
(1) a little too long. My neck isn't quite that big
(2) A bit bulky. When you first put it on, it can seem a bit annoying because it's hitting under your jaw. After about 10 minutes though, I don't even know it's there.
I'd recommend it for adults. For children, you'll wrap this thing around a kids entire head. Just get ready for some adjustment.
Very comfortable, offers great protection, looks cool, only $10
Are all neck protectors built the same? I don't know. But I like this one. It's comfortable so it won't interfere with your game. It almost covers your neck completely so it offers great protection. And hey, it's only $10. I would not play without one.
Pay $10 and be cool or live with red spots on your neck for 3 days. Take your pick.

Great protection, low price
Everyone should wear a throat guard of some kind. Don't get in the macho "only wimps wear em" frame of mind. Throat shots are painful, and possibly dangerous at close ranges. Protect yourself with something.
The Raven throat guard is extremely comfortable and offers great protection. And its only $10, so its not expensive. I took a shot yesterday straight in the throat, and I am glad I had this thing on. Besides having to explain the big purple and black bruise that I would have had to my co workers, It could have caused some serious damage, the range was less than 10 feet. I felt no pain, and I'm not bruised.
Well worth the money, and offers great protection all the way around. Pick one up.

I dont beleive i making this but i'm board so. It's a neck protecter that protects your neck. It is very comfotable to wear. It even has vent slits in it. It's big or small enough for anyone. I got this because i was playing and i got hit in the neck with some shells that hurt and also twigs that hurt even more. Also i got this b/c my friend got bunkered in the neck.
Confortable, big or small enough, it stays cool when wearing it. Get it, buy it, NOW!
Most bang for the buck of any equipment you will buy.
None that I have noticed.
There is some debate among individuals out there about the benefits of a neck protector. Let me just say that wearing this neck protector has saved numerous hits. I don't know how many times you guys have been hit in the neck but me and my friends play some pretty harsh games where you play until you no longer have any rounds left or you're out of gas and then you still might get a few shots lobbed at you. SO, each round leaves us with plenty of welts. None of us are wussies, and don't mind a few reminders of the battle staying with us for a few days. But, we take safety serious and there is rarely a day after shooting a couple thousand rounds at each other that one of us doesn't have some paint on their neck protector. The great thing is that none of us have ever been hit in the neck and known it! One of us will look at the other and say, "hey, looks like you took one in the neck" Inwhich, "the other will reply, "really?!?" How cool is that? Anyway, for ten bucks it's a no-brainer plus the Raven model has great styling if that matters to you.
For the price and for the protection it is hard to see why someone would argue against one of these. Their not too uncomfortable and in between the rounds they're easy on/easy off to let you cool off. Raven styling and quality are top notch.

- Does not disrupt range of motion
- fits small necks
nothing really, just your neck gets sweaty
I really like this product. It doesn't disturb your range of motion, and is surprisingly comfortable. Also, it is only $10, and it's definately worth it. I got mine at a local paintball stoare. This particular protector may not be for you. You should always ask to try it on before purchasing. It was right for me, so that's what I'm basing this on...There's not much else to write about a neck protector, lol. It works, I love it, buy it, end of story.
It's only $10, buy it. Being hit in the neck hurts, alot at times. It is definately worth the investment. Go for it. I gaev this a 10, and it deserves it.
