Look up the videos about Poron XRD on YouTube, where they drop a bowling ball on a pane of glass and it doesn't break. This CP has GREAT protection and is well worth the price. Gait has a winner here.Pros:
Love that it has metal clips on the straps instead of the Velcro straps that always wear out. Poron XRD is GREAT protection. Shoulder caps are removable. Slightly bulkier than CPs like the SXT Cell, but VERY protective, lightweight and comfortable.Cons:
My son is 6 feet tall and about 155 pounds, but the medium is still pretty big on him. He'll grow into it, but this isn't for very small goalies.
