New for 2018 is the Velocity VE8 Pro Carbon chest and arm protector form Vaughn. This unit includes a lot of the same high-end features on the last two iterations from Vaughn but with some updated ones that make this one of the beat chest protectors money can buy.
Starting with some of the carry over features, this chest protector has the same light weight performance that you have come to expect from Vaughn. This lightweight is due to the signature carbon enhanced performance that has become synonymous with Vaughn’s high-end offerings. The replacement of carbon fiber protection throughout this unit, combined with aero-spacer materials, HD foam inserts and Kevlar ballistic style internals make this chest extremely lightweight while still offereing pro level protection.
Some of the updates and newer features on this chest and arm can be seen in appearance with wider shoulder floaters and an updated graphic. Another new feature is the snap on suspender holders on the shoulders to keep your suspenders in place when worn over the chest protector.
There are multiple points of adjustment to give you the best possible fit. Two waist strap adjustments, one fixed and one clipped, and the clip covered by HD foams. Velcro adjustable wrist straps. HD molded elbow pads with 4 points of adjustment. Shoulder floater adjustments for proper feel and less inference with your mask. On the back there is the dual adjusting Velcro on the shoulders for a perfect fit around the collarbone and chest.
