A one-piece sheet of cushioning foam (padding) provides safety during torso impacts and partially absorbs impact energy. The inner mesh cover provides comfortable use and adequate ventilation. The four-point Velcro attachment allows for a comfortable fit. Easy to put on and adjustable in height and size.
