Steaks Smackanawa Vest
Can’t seem to get through a bout without upper-body bruises?
Have no fear, the Smackanawa Vest is here!
This single-layer elastic vest with padding on the collarbone, sternum, and ribs will keep you safe — and make you feel like a superhero.
Brainchild of Trisha Smackanawa of the London Rollergirls, this vest's snug-fitting, elastic, nylon fabric keeps the impact material in the right spots and has a tight compression fit to support your muscles during performance.
The vest’s short cut just above the naval also helps to keep you from overheating.
The Steaks Vest has low profile Poron XRD impact material that protects your sternum, collarbone and ribs.
Poron XRD is soft and flexible when at rest but when stressed at a high rate or impacted quickly, the Tg of the material reaches a point where the urethane molecules momentarily “freeze”- like water into ice.
Thus, the material firms to form a comfortable protective shell that absorbs and instantly dissipates up to 90% of the impact energy again and again.
