Comments: The Bauer Performance Chest Protector is a great pad for the beginner to intermediate level players. Getting to the advanced level though, you will begin to feel some shots, especially around the stomach. I really like the velcro compared to the buckle straps you would find on Reebok or Vaughn chest protectors. The velcro gives you a more flexible, custom fit that the buckle straps couldn't do. Another good thing about this chest protector is it rides fairly high on your collarbone, making the need for a throat protector not as high, though I still wear one. Overall, its a great, lightweight pad for an affordable price. If you are just starting out as a goalie or at the intermediate level, I recommend this chest protector.

Comments: I have used this now for about 10 games , great fit and protection for inline goaltending, and for the price! A little light in the rib areas, but again, for the pricepoint it def doesn't dissapoint. I'm 6.1 and an XL was a good fit. The ability to adjust the arms and stomach protection is also a big plus.

Comments: Bought this product to try to save money on a new chest protector that didnt smell since I had my old one for about 8 years. Unfortunately, you get what you pay for in this case. While the chest protector would be good for lower levels of ice hockey and sometimes roller hockey, I have found at higher levels of play, especially on ice, the puck penetrates the chest protector and causes a dull pain. Pros: - good collar bone / neckline protection - Adjustable arms are good for someone whose arms may be shorter/longer than the norm - Velcro-attached stomach protectors provide added lower stomach coverage Cons: - Somewhat inadequate protection in the thorax/chest/stomach area - Size Large is for someone sub 6 foot, which is not exactly clear initially
