Our Two Cents

The articulated back pad consists of plastic plates secured to a piece of protective foam. This is the most substantial style and it most resembles the GP type armor for shoulders and elbows. Although it’s the most substantial, it is also a little thicker and heavier than the CE style. The CE style back protector is a combination of dense foam covered in a less dense foam layer which is designed to absorb impact energy. It’s light weight and comfortable to wear. Use this information from Vanson’s website for help with installation: Vanson Armor Installation.

Note about the articulated style back pads: The entire backside of the back protector is a material that acts like the “loop” Velcro material. This will stick to the Velcro pieces sewn in your jacket (“hook” type). The back protector also has two pieces of loop Velcro sewn to each top corner which you can disregard. Those are used for attaching in Vanson race suits.
