Kova Neck Guard

Recommended Posts

Very nice. First Kova I've seen with air knit on the bib.

Stiffness?

Overall it feels pretty stiff, but I haven’t used it on the ice. The segmented areas at the shoulder flex well. 

To me, this would appeal to people who like the classic Vaughn bib. I do NOT think the Maltese crowd would like this. 

This has the Zoom Bang. Not sure if the traditional one is more flexible or not

Zoombang is awesome stuff.  I'm loving my padded shirt... But in true goalie fashion I haven't taken any shots you the collarbone since getting it

Ohhhh ok

There’s 3-4 NHL guys that use this style shirt. 

Stolarz 100%, maybe Rinne too?

I have a PAW version like this and an ECO Pro Foam.  Coming off a Maltese.  And you're right, the Maltese crowd won't like something like this because I'm having a hell of a time adjusting to the PAW one.  Which is why I got the EPF.

Was pretty skeptical I’d like this. Been using the Aegis which very minimal and flexible... like a Maltese on steroids. 

Didn’t think I’d like the firm bib and it worked great. Very low profile and stayed in place 

No good shots to comment on there

Rinne and Saros. They love the Kovo stuff. Finns loving Finns.

@TheGoalNet does the 2" height interfere at all with mobility/looking down? I'm ordering a neck guard from Kova, and I'm trying to figure out height. Ideally, I'd like to maximize protection and go 2.5" in height, but I want to avoid that "too-tight necktie" feeling and maintain full movement.

Any more info on these neck guards after using them? I’m using a EPF now and it’s causing the back of my neck to break out.

Nice unit. Topi mocked one up for me a little while ago, but I haven't pulled the trigger yet. I have suspenders from him with floater straps and absolutely love them. Great, great quality and really nice guy to deal with.

What was the pricing on this spec?

usually around $165 cdn I Think.

A friend got me one for X-Mas and it's been great. Been shot a ton in the collarbone and throat area without any injuries.

Do you wash it?

I would suggest washing it with your other under things and air drying after each game. If you're breaking out, it could be for many reasons and that it's dirty.  Could not.  The neck, like the face, is usually extra oily and prone to breaking out with clogged pores.  I used to be prone to staph infections and have done as I suggested above along with other precautions for many years now.  I also wash my gear every 3-6 months (except skates and leg pads, although they get a good wipedown and Mr. Clean Magic Erasering).  Also, wash anything new before you wear it the first time.

@TheGoalNetWould you share pictures with this neck guard around your neck? Both from profile and front.

Everything Smooth JenPro Leather

All Gel Foam

5 cm (I think I should stick with 4.5 cm or make special with 4 cm but then I will order during the season)

-1 Inch clavicle

All black with orange text!

I'll be back with review.
