This product is the brainchild of Trisha Smackanawa of the London Rollergirls. It’s snug-fitting, elastic, nylon fabric keeps the impact material in the right spots and has a tight compression fit to support your muscles during performance. The vest’s short cut just above the naval also helps to keep you from overheating.

I took this one when in pain on my shoulder joints, making hitting people a bit more difficult for me. This vest protects the collarbone area in addition to what the pro top covers. So it helped me have a better control over the position of my shoulders when hitting or trying to move people out of my jammer’s path.
It looks really nice on its own too !

By dint of blocking too much backward and the on same side, my right collarbone has gradually collapsed. In addition, I also block too much with the sides of my body and so, I often have pain in the ribs. I do not put this top at every training but when I feel a weakness, it is very useful 🙂

Lo recomiendo 100%. Lo uso para competir en Roller Derby. Como blocker muchas veces recibes golpes de jammers y blockers en las costillas que pueden desestabilizarte o quitarte el aliento. Este chaleco amortigua muchísimo ese tipo de golpes donde están los pads de protección. Me puedo mover libremente y no me ha agregado calor excesivo al usarlo debajo de la camiseta. La tabla de talles me ha resultado muy clara y precisa.
