Dye Performance Top

Hello guys,

I've been looking at getting some sort of chest protector. I really just want something comfortable to be able to wear all day and that is thin so I don't feel like I'm wearing a life jacket. I don't need body armour but something to take out a little sting if I'm playing the snake and get bumped. I played last weekend and after 4 to the ribs and a few more to the back, I'm really considering something.

The lowest profile, more comfortable looking one that I've seen is the Dye. Does anyone use one? Is it comfortable? What is the take on this and speedball for tourneys?

Depending on the tourney (psp, nppl, etc.) there is different rules. Psp allows nothing more than a 100% cotton t-shirt under jerseys. You also can only have 2 layers on any part of the body (jersey and shirt, jersey and armpads, pants and knee pads)

Cutting the sleeves off a slightly over-sized sweatshirt would probably be the cheapest option for what you're looking for.

I have the Dyecam one and it's ok. Just be warned, they are sized VERY small. I'm 6'1", about 220 lbs and I use a XXL when I wear a L in just about anything else. Quality is ok, but if you're not careful about getting it on/off you can burst the stitching on the seams. Mine has a few spots where that happened before I figured out the trick to taking it off once it's all sweaty and gross lol...

In PSP, if you have an Unpadded Jersey you are allowed to wear your bounce armor as your under layer(5.1.1.1/5.1.4/5.1.6).
5.1.1.1. Either the jersey or the undershirt may be padded as per 5.1.4. but not both.
5.1.4. Padding in jerseys is not limited to specific areas; provided that the thickness does not exceed 5mm (0.197”) Padding material is limited to an open cell foam and must not be modified from the manufacturer's original form.
5.1.6. Any layer of clothing that is thicker than a standard 100% cotton T-shirt is padding.

Also no short sleeve or sleeveless are you out most layer
5.1.5. No short sleeve or “sleeveless” vest type jerseys can be worn as the outer most layer.

Finally I would recommend the PE Overload Padded Jersey. Those protect your sensitive rib area the best.

ahhh, gotcha. I knew someone would check the rulebook, I couldn't remember if it mattered about the padding in the jersey

I know that rule well because I had plenty of people whine about my bounce padding. So I just show them the PSP rulebook.

just to piggy back a little what about forearm padding?

Whats the best from a protection, comfortable and non-slippage perspective....

I always used Smart parts ones. I thought they are great.
