Lightweight protection for your upper body, the Optimum Velocity Top Rugby Body Armour gives players the confidence to go into any challenge. Offering high impact resistance protection at all major points of contact, 10mm padding over the shoulders is joined by 5mm across the biceps, sternum, ribs and kidneys. Designed to be tight fitting so as to stay securely in place and provide optimum protection, this also allows for other layers to be worn atop such as your rugby shirt or training kit. The foam padding can also be easily removed to leave you feeling fresh and ready for any action. Black can be a rather dull affair, even if it is practical, but with purple and pink on colourful display this brightens the whole look to inspire your play. For added confidence, this body armour has been approved by the IRB.
