New for 2013, the Vaughn LT90 Ventus Chest & Arm Protector provides the ultimate combination of mobility and protection. Based off of the popular VP 9500 Vision Chest & Arm protector, the LT90 features several upgrades to make a great product even better.
For starters, the shoulders floaters have been made wider and more sqaure in order to cover more of the shoulder joint. Additionally, a removable cushioned pad has been placed underneath the main floater to both provide more height to the shoulder pad if needed, and also to provide more protection to this high impact area. Underneath the main floater sits two smaller HD foam shoulder caps. The middle cap has been made more oval and has also been extended downward to help provide better coverage to the arm pit and upper bicep area.
The main sternum protector is made of HD foams, and this protection has also been extended further down the belly from the previous model.
The arm padding has also been modified for 2013 to be more protective and mobile. The bicep padding is wide, and now includes an outer tricep protector to guard against those high shots that always seem to find this sensitive area. The main arm floaters are wide, they are angled at the top for better mobility, and a new oval outer elbow pad allows the floater to flex more freely while also providing more padding. The arm padding is tapered at the wrist area so as not to interfere with the gloves, and the entire arm is skinned with Vaughn's aerospacer mesh for unparalelled flexibilty and breathability.
