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 🙂

Your protection material: Poron XRD®

Our impact material is called Poron XRD®. It is soft and flexible when at rest, while above the glass transition temperatures (Tg) of the urethane molecules. When stressed at a high rate or impacted quickly, the Tg of the material reaches a point where the urethane molecules momentarily “freeze”- like water into ice. Thus, the material firms to form a comfortable protective shell that absorbs and instantly dissipates up to 90% of the impact energy again and again.

Further benefits:
  • Low-profile: Poron XRD® is extremely thin, 4.8 mm / 1.9 inches to be exact. This is why the material can conform with movement, allowing you to move normally, but protecting you when needed.
  • Longevity: Our impact material is treated with Microban® Antimicrobial Protection that helps prevent the growth of bacteria and repels odours and stains, allowing you to simply rinse your contact wear product (after training) a few times before having to actually wash it and thereby strain the material.
  • Breathability: The XRD® Technology is open cell and breathable, offering protection without plastic or other materials that will increase a heightened body temperature.
