The Bauer Elite INT Chest Protector is back! Better than ever before. The new Bauer Elite comes equipped with many great features to offer everyone a great chest outside of that pro level price range. Bauer really went through all the little details with this chest and it paid off, from as little as suspender straps on the shoulder floaters all the way to the new extended belly wrap Bauer has managed to tick off at the boxes.
The Bauer Elite chest exterior is covered nearly entirely in nylons and mesh to provide great breathability and durability. It is also lined with Thermomax+ to keep you cool and fight odor and bacteria.
The internal build up of this chest is primarily the same throughout, we see Bauer using a multi layer impact form foam in the belly and a molded sternum. The chest also features a removable three piece belly extension wrap and Bauer’s Thermomax+ liner for quick drying time and good protection against odor and bacteria.
The Elite chest features a sewn-in shoulder cap, the make up of it will include hard plastic and EPP foam. This combo will result in a highly durable and protective shoulder cap.
The arms of the Bauer Elite chest are adjustable, the arms come sewn in for top level durability. Although the arms are sewn in Bauer has given a velcro strap as well to let you customize the length of the arms to get the perfect fit.
Bauer went with their three-piece segmented elbow caps on the Elite Chest Protector. The segmented caps allow for phenomenal flexibility and mobility, the elbow caps are made up of a hard plastic with foam and then lined with a nylon.
In terms of fit customization the Bauer Elite does not lack in that department. The Bauer Elite chest comes equipped with one elastic back strap to change through various tightnesses as well as a shoulder floater collar adjustment and lastly a fully adjustable shoulder, to really allow each person to find their own fit.
