First things first, not a bad chest protector at all. Especially for the money you pay and being a non lacrosse brand company (if that makes sense). I purchased this chest protector bc it's the only one that comes in a XL. I used it for a masters tournament that I played in last week. It consisted of 5 games with in 5 hours or less. I read the reviews and everyones concern was the break in the pad around the belly. I figured I have enough padding there already, I should be ok. I also thought what are the chances of getting hit right at the break. Sure enough the third shot that day hit me right in the break. The pad gets most of it but it still burns. Other than that I didn't have issues with the buckles or anything breaking or velcro not holding. I feel like it's a pretty solid chest protector and I'll continue to use it.Pros:
I liked the XL size, the 4 buckles instead of 2, and the solid piece over the chest.Cons:
Maybe a flap of padding on the back side to protect the belly where the break is in the pad.
