Good for low level hockey
This model is definitely aimed at the lower level of play with the greatest area of concern being in the forearm area. Certain powerful shots, at the right (or wrong) angle can lead to nasty bruising. Please be aware of your level of play.
The S27 is very light and the adjustability in the height of the chest area is easy and great. The only drawback to this function is that at certain points, the exposed velcro can be uncomfortable, depending on your under shirt.
Coming from older models of chest protection, you will definitely be please with certain aspects of this unit, but as stated, please be aware of the caliber of play you intend to use this with.
