Breaking in the SOLID 1X Chesty


Recommended Posts

Hi guys, just wondering if anyone here is wearing the 1X chest and has properly broken it in. I've used it about 6 times but its hard to sacrifice valuable practice time during the season fighting the awkwardness, instead of focusing on development in mid season. I remember someone saying throw it in a cotton sac and throw it in the dryer with no heat, not sure if that's the way to jumpstart the process.

Let me clarify that when I say broken in I just want the floaters and arms to soften up, I've tried every combo for the floaters and seem to be having trouble moving my head to that 90 degree angle (wearing a Bauer 960 mask), making rebound tracking and behind the net plays almost impossible to execute on. Its fits perfectly everywhere except the floaters, I've tied it down to my pants but its still an issue.

Thanks in advanced for the help!

@BMFSdesigns I think you have one of these?

Easiest way to break in a C/A is this:

Run skate lace through the arms and neck.  Tie them shut so the arms are flexed.

Run the hottest shower you can in the smallest bathroom you can, and hang your chesty using a coat hanger directly underneath your showerhead so it doesn't take any direct water contact (direct water won't hurt it but getting the unit waterlogged sucks)

Let the C/A sit in there and take in some of the moisture from the steam.  Do this a couple times, and let it dry out in between.

Basically you want to simulate usage, and steam is the best way without damaging any of the adhesive inside the chest pad.
