I bought this neck guard incase I ever got shot in the neck. I bought it and used it a few times and I didn't really notice it was on but I still haven't been shot in the neck yet so I don't know how it feels getting shot there.
Buy this if you want a cheaply priced, good quality neckguard

Can get hot and uncomfortable
Great product. Usually found for less than 10 bux. Black is great for all types of play because your neck doesnt become and easy target. These actaully protect the neck fairly well for being so damn thin. The holes in the material work wonders for breathability, but sometimes not enough when the going gets tough and the tough get going.
32 Degrees - Throat Deflector
* 32 Degrees is thicker, but narrower than the JT
* 32 Degrees have a much small velcro strap

That's it, that's my main marker, pistolier all the way!
- Very soft
- Wide enough to cover all of your neck
- No ugly brand logo
- Thinner than other neck protectors
It's money well spent. You don't ever want to get hit in the neck! You'll love it for the protection it gives you. You'll love it for how comfortable it is. You'll love it all the more on that once-in-a-blue-moon occasion that you do get hit in the neck.
The JT neck protector is, in my humble opinion, better than the 32 Degree version for the following reasons:
- The velcro straps on the JT neck protector is longer and wider, allowing you to fasten it on to your neck securely
- The JT neck protector is significantly wider, it'll actually cover all of your neck
- The JT neck protector does not have that annoying white and neon blue foam logo in the centre
The only weakness of the JT neck protector, relative to the 32 Degrees version, is that the neck protector itself is thinner.
Between 32 Degrees and JT, I prefer the JT neck protector.
Having said that, I must also point our that I've only ever used the JT and the 32 Degrees; I'm well aware there are numerous other neck protectors made by other companies, but alas, I haven't tried them out yet.
If you have a very fragile neck, get a second JT neck protector and fasten that one top of the other.

Hot, not thick enough
I took a glancling shot in the neck about a month ago, so I opted to get a neck protector. This one was readily available so I picked it up. Of course, I didn't get shot in the neck again for a while until last night. I'm not sure much would have done me good cuz it was a direct shot hit from about 20-30' (indoor field) and it absolutely stung the cr@p out of me. Afterwards, while cleaning off my neck I noticed that I actually had embedded paintbal shell pieces in the neoprene and my neck was cut as well. Maybe the guy was shooting a little hot? I dunno. I will say this, I can't imagine what that shot would've felt like without it, so for that I'm not going to ding it too bad. However, I think a little thicker neoprene/material would solve the problem.
Better than a bare neck shot, but not quite thick enough. I recommend it as an alternative to nothing, but do not expect it to completely protect your neck from welts, cuts, etc.

Takes a lot of the pain out when hit in the neck
Tag is itchy
Looks odd. But I'm not in it for the looks
I've had this thing for around 3 months now and I have to say that it has served its purpose many, many times. I was shot in the neck a long time ago and I decided to get some protection. So I rode up to the local Dicks Sporting Goods store and bought it. It's only 10 bucks and thats hard to beat. The first time of use took some time getting used to. But after serveral games, I got used to it. When I get to playing, sometimes I forget its there. On rare occasions, the JT tag sewed inside it itchies at times, but not all the time.
Hey, its only 10 bucks. Go out and get you one. You will be pleased at the results for the money. It just takes some time getting used to. :-)
Its nice cause if you get hit in the neck or the throat you can just keep on trucking, but it gets kinda hot and itchy, although its worth the sacrifice if you ask me. It does have small holes in it to allow a bit of cooling. Its saved my neck 5 or 6 times so far and im grateful.
Its worth the ten dollars and small amount of discomfort
Well, I got one of these because my parents over-reacted to a friend's injury... I've been hit in the neck 3 times since I've worn it; two breaks and one bounce. It still hurts, and my neck will usually still bleed if I'm within around 30 or less feet. Its good for recball because theres usually big distances involved, but its useless on speed/hyperball, because you're usually within 0-50ft of your enemy. Very annoying, too.

i have used this only a couple of times. it was to small for my neck. it can stretch but it feels like it is choking you. it is washable and it wont shrink. the padding is superb. i got shot in the neck only once with it on and i didn't feel a thing. this neck protector is well worth every penny.
this is a very good well made neck protector. i would recommend this to all young players who fear of getting tagged in the neck.
protects your neck, breaths and fits my neck perfectly
seen one come apart from use (never happened to me)
my neck is kind of long but after playing with it a while i dont even notice it and sometimes even froget it's on, I saw my friend's shread after about a year so it cant be that tough, it fit pretty tightly on his neck though, protects your neck from being sliced open so it is worth it, especially if u use a proteus like me which does not go down to your neck
a decent buy, cheap and good but I dont know how long it will last
easy to move, protects well, light weight, and fits on tight.
You will still fell little pain when you get shot on the neck.
I have a Proteus goggle system. And it has no neck protection at all. So everytime I walk on to that field, my first concern is getting shot on the neck. I never been shot on the neck when I didn't have this, but I was very afraid it would happen. So I bought this. And I started to get tripple the amount of kills in a game. And then someone snook around me and shot me on my neck point blank. It stung a little but there was no bruse or welt. The only reason I actually bought this is because my friend got shot on the neck at Operation Paintball. And then once I saw the bruse, I got really scared. So basically this neck protector both gives you more confidence in paintball, and more protection.
I highly recommend this product because it will increase you protection and confidence.
