New Tendy here who was just able to snatch an unused one, on a scale of 1-10 how hot does it get. I'm not that big of a guy either 6'2 170, currently in an Axis 2 chest and id give it maybe a 4/10 on heat, would love to know what you think!

I don’t think it’s super hot. I also put a little peppermint oil on my chest and neck to keep cool. The rinks in Austin run a little warm in the summer, so maybe that has me conditioned to the heat.

Yes, at the pond mostly, with the occasional sub at Chap or crossover. The far side seems to be hotter.

Im so lucky man, the stars have just aligned for me since getting into this sport, while my skating still isnt great everything else is going almost too smoothly. Im lucky enough to be able to get pretty much every piece of equipment I want, im so lucky dude.

Update after first skate with the new chest:

 

Unit was a tank, and actually for me not much hotter than the Axis 2 I was using, id give it a 4-5/10 on hotness for me,I also untuck so that helps a little. Mobility and protection were great took a slapshot from one of the ACHA D2 guys here in Boulder off the ribs and didnt feel a thing, besides the pressure of the puck hitting me. Took another slapper off the upper arm again nothing but the pressure. My biggest complaint for the unit was getting my jersey on. Now I'm wearing a Game wear senior Goalie cut which i assume is close to a 58G, id assume i might wanna find a slightly bigger jersey, cause man it was a roughtime getting it on. but overall im loving this unit so much and am super happy with my purchase!

When I had mine, I did notice a little struggle getting a jersey on but it was mostly because of how the arms don't bend like the off the shelf stuff, all that thick plastic. After all, these are supposed to be NHL spec, which means smaller than what we buy in stores.

Hey Yall didnt know which forum to put this in but it does have to do with the new ABPROSPEC that CCM is releasing here soon. I emailed them a week ago or so asking when it was releasing (before i got my current chest) and the just got back to me, so heres what the said about the release window:

Sounds like a tentative launch. I'm guessing they'll sell out in a week and we'll have to wait for round 2 within the summer

Last year we received the ef6 the first week of April. Stores may get them early for a soft launch.

They didn't even mention the size and 99$ shipping!!?

Old day Ebay fuckery was to load up the Shipping and "handling" to make it seem like a deal, I guess it's still going on.
