The Vaughn Velocity VE8 XFP Goalie Chest and Arm Protector is the newest installation of the XFP line brought to you by Vaughn Hockey and Pure Goalie. After the continued success of the original velocity XFP chest protector, the new VE8 XFP chest protector has been updated and improved to bring you the best mid-price point chest protector on the market.
The Pro Carbon family of chest and arm protectors form Vaughn has long been one of our top selling pro chest protectors and we at Pure Goalie thought why not bring that fit and feel to a mid-price point senior, intermediate, and junior sized chest protector. The results are fantastic. After closely working with Vaughn the new VE8 XFP chest and arm protector is one of the most mobile, lightweight and adjustable in its class. A Pure Goalie exclusive fit and feel, the VE8 XFP chest and arm is the easiest break-in for goalies of all ages.
The Vaughn Velocity VE8 XFP chest and arm protector is based off the VE8 pro in shape and adjustment. One of the biggest struggles goalies have with equipment is finding a chest protector that fits properly without restricting movement. The VE8 XFP chest protector is designed with full back pad adjustment over the shoulder area that allows the unit to move up and down the chest to give a snug feel around the goalies’ collarbone. This dual Velcro adjustment over the shoulders that is typically only featured on the senior sized models is found on the senior, intermediate, and junior models of the VE8 XFP chest protector.
The chest and shoulder protection on the Vaughn Velocity VE8 chest and arm protector consists of an HD molded shoulder cap, adjustable shoulder floaters, mesh arms with HD foam arm floaters and a tapered forearm protector with wrist straps. The rest of the Ve8 XFP chest and arm protector uses a HD foam and plastic inserts on the belly pad, bicep pads, side rib protection. The strapping on the VE8 XFP chest protector features adjustment in the wrist, elbows, shoulder floaters and the over-the-shoulder Velcro adjustment, as well as the waist buckle which adjusts on both sides and buckles on one with covered protection for the buckle. The VE8 XFP features a custom colorway that is exclusive to Pure Goalie. Overall the Vaughn Velocity VE8 XFP chest and arm protector is the best value in terms of fit, adjustment, and mobility available.
