Fluffy Bunnies for life!!
EvoShield - For men and women
Okay as like most players with girlfriend or significant other who want or like to play paintball the inevitable search for a chest protector to fit a woman came up.
She (the woman in question) plays and likes to play so the investment was a no brainer. Not the she is afraid of getting hurt, but as she out it,"If you ran around with your testicles on your chest you would wear a chest protector too.." Interesting analogy, but apt. SO I started searching around the internet for a solution.
Admit it paintball is a male dominated sport that is currently marketed to young males. Sad but true (maybe, maybe not) so looking for gear that is made for women is tough. There was a company that made a sports bra that had inserts that could be put in, I found their site. BK products (here) The site looked like it hadn't been updated for some time so I didn't even bother (I think it was 2007).
So I started researching products for sports that had a larger female involvement. That is when I found Evoshield, a company that specializes in protective gear for major sports.
The price is steep ($89.00), however she has played and is looking to keep playing (she is on our team). What you get is a compression racer back tee with pockets that hold the plates. Yes, plates. This is not bounce padding, these plates are actually rigid plates that form to your body when you get it. The shirt is shipped to you with the plates, the plates are in a sealed wrapper once to pierce the bag the hardening process will start. The plates are easy enough to get in the shirt and all that is required to form them is to wear the shirt with the plates in place for about 30 minutes.
Link, because I suck at embedding videos.
She loves it!! No more Mr.StayPuff chest protector shifting around when she plays. This product is also made for men, youths and just about everyone, they also offer custom designed shirts for if you have special needs (implants or surgical areas that need to be protected). The plates are rigid so it isn't bounce armor, however it is very comfortable and fits the wearer perfectly. So if your looking for a chest protector for yourself (men or women) that needs to be protective and doesn't need to be bouncy then this is for you.
I will post up some photos of it later, and some of her wearing it (if she will let me).
