BonesDT Posted June 22, 2019 Share Posted June 22, 2019 This is a comparison between the Warrior Ritual G4 Sr (2018) and Ritual GT2 Sr (2019) chest protectors. These chesties are identical in design but the GT2 is clearly much beefier, specifically everywhere in the arms, the shoulder floaters, and the sternum pad. The G4 is $270 and the GT2 is $320. The G4 weighs 5.81 lbs and the GT2 6.64 lbs. The shoulder floaters seem to be similar size and design but the GT2’s are thicker. The GT2 has more breaks, but the G4 is just as flexible due to the thinner material. Yes, that is an upside down “R/GT2” permanently sewn into the shoulder floaters and a manufacturing flaw. The elbow floaters are identical but the GT2 has an additional flap pad on top making it much beefier. The added flap also adds a half inch in width for blocking surface. The bicep area above the elbow floater and the wrist area below are significantly different. The G4 has a broader but rounder shape but it is very thin and flexible plastic. The GT2 is square and solidly thick plastic (I can’t pinch it). There’s reinforced fabric right at the wrist strap on the GT2. The sternum pad is thicker on the GT2 and thick consistency through. The G4 is very thin and then thickens in the middle. The entire backsides seem to be identical. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
