i like this c/a but why is this happening?

I swear i have bad luck with c/a's the first time out with my brand new Vector one of the quick releases broke and if I remember correctly the neck on that one started fraying too.

Thanks guys for the replies. I think I will try to patch it. I guess it is just a bad wear spot. Also was thinking the chin of mask could be causing it.  i always wear a neck gaurd/bib. Have a pretty good one that I replaced the old one with. It's a little bulky but I feel safer in it. 

 

Thanks

I was asking if maybe the neck guard was rubbing on it. 
 

What neck guard do you use?

Where did you obtain this c/a?  I got a small one off sideline swap and it had the same issue and was repaired terribly.  I saw another on sideline that had the same issue.  The material itself seems robust so it's either a terrible stitch job or someone with severe stubble is burning through these things and selling them off lol.

I have a Vaughn that has finally fallen to this same wear.  Noticed it a few weeks ago.  I know that the pad saw a fair amount of use before I bought it, and I got a couple years of part-time use.


Talked to my local gear repair specialist, and he says he sees this a lot.  Will be getting mine repaired in the next month or so hopefully, to extend its lifespan, as I love the protection and fit.

It is usualy form mask chin or dangler. Found similar one (smaller) on my bauer chest few days ago. Sometimes when you change neck guard, chest sits little higher and mask starts to slowly rubbing it. You don´t notice it in the game, because it is not in every move...it happens over time. In my opinion - just sew/patch it it and it is ok.

Sorry for the delay I couldn't find the pic of it but this is the one I use now. Getting more use to it. At first it felt too restrictive. 

 

And dreadlocked1, hi I can't remember now what hockey shop I found this one at but it was brand new and got it because of all the.good reviews and it was my size [the c/a]

Do you have exposed velcro on the chin cup strap in your helmet?  Looks like velcro burn to me.

This looks like it imo, and it's on one side, which would make sense. If so, then cut a opposing velcro part to match it up to the exposed part
