The Vaughn VP 7260 Chest and Arm Protector features standard INTERMEDIATE sizing, and it is designed for the upper beginner to intermediate level goaltender. Sizing is optimized for a goaltender who has intermediate height but not as much shoulder width or body weight.
The shoulders feature large floaters with high-density foam inserts, as well as larger HD foam and plastic shoulder cap protection which covers the shoulder caps and upper bicep area. A large, articulating sternum plate sits between the floaters for maximum protection and shock absorbtion. The chest and belly feature anatomically correct body pads with angled protective blocks for flexibility. A lower belly flap provides protection, and it also moves to help keep the main unit in place as the goaltender bends at the waist.
The arms are constructed with a flexible base material with molded arm caps. Elbow padding is made of plastic and soft foams for comfort, and it features a four-point adjustment system for a custom fit. Large main arm floaters add protection and allow for improved puck deflection. Nylon lining on the interior prevents water gain and allows for fast drying.
