Since the latest update to the FIE rulebook, at foil, the entire outside of the chest protector (that is the side facing the opponent) must be covered with a soft material, in order to prevent the deflection of hits (see FIE rules, section m.25.4.c). Together with QP sport, a sportswear brand specialising in chest protectors, we have developed this soft layer, which you can attach to your current chest protector in no time by using simple Velcro dots. Made from rubber, it will keep you as cool as possible by allowing a better thermal management than comparable neoprene models.
Comes as a set with six VELCRO® Brand fastenings dots and an instruction sheet how to bring them up to your current chest protector. Please note: to be worn with a corresponding rigid chest protector, type EconoGuard (Ref. 59L). Please purchase this item separately if you're new to foil fencing and don't have a chest protector yet.
