Bauer vs Warrior chesties

Recommended Posts

Oh sorry! I was specifically referencing the pro carbon one (figured most everyone here buys pro chest protectors for the most part). I personally use the LT98 orange and grey - seems that they only added shoulder suspended straps and changed the elbows to mesh.

You mean Vaughn has the most peculiar naming conventions for their gear? You don't say.

Haha. Yup. A for effort trying to deviate from the competitions but F for working. It’s definitely been a deterrence to me trying their line simply because I didn’t understand them. 

So I just checked and the brand new Ventus SLR2 Pro is $350, which is the same price as the X2.9, which is the upper limit of Senior-level chesties. 

It actually looks like a nice chestie in the pictures and similar to the others I tried  maybe I’ll try to check it out soon.

There is a Velocity VE8 Pro (non-Carbon) but its $430, which falls in a weird price range between everyone else’s Senior-level gear and Pro-level.

It’s ironic.  When I was a kid I remember always seeing the Vaughn stuff in stores and obsessing over it and dreaming to one day be decked out in full Vaughn gear.  As an adult with a job, I’ve yet to own a single piece.  Maybe one day.
