    Protective and does not have a huge waist piece. Important because it doesn't get in the way of your pants/CA when crouching forward.

  1. Maybe it's Good F-ing Luck (figuring out what this stands for)
  2. Pretty sure the Factory Mad folks also do equipment repair - I know a lot of people really like their glove modifications, too.

    Vaughn pad sizing

    If you can wait, I think the SLR3 pads are coming out soon.
  4. 1) The underlying numbers from that article are taken directly from data from the UK government website. https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-vaccine-adverse-reactions/coronavirus-vaccine-summary-of-yellow-card-reporting 2) He contributed to the work in its infancy that eventually gave us the mRNA vaccines we have today. That doesn't make him the ultimate authority on it - and his recommendation to only give it to high-risk patients goes against the recommendation from many thousands of other doctors to give it to everyone 12+ as fast as we can. Streamlining regulatory red tape is not the same as rushing the development of the vaccine (implying that it is somehow unsafe); it still went through rigorous clinical trials with thousands of patients, and the data was reviewed (with priority) just as it would have been otherwise. Phase 3 clinical trials for the Pfizer vaccine included more than 43000 people; this compares similarly with 4000-22000 people in various clinical studies for statins (cholesterol lowering drugs that are used ubiquitously). Sources: https://www.pfizer.com/news/press-release/press-release-detail/pfizer-and-biontech-conclude-phase-3-study-covid-19-vaccine https://www.lipid.org/sites/default/files/2-_lipid_u-_landmark_clinical_trials-_brown.pdf 3) You yourself said that countries are relying on self-reported; VAERS is no different. https://vaers.hhs.gov/data/dataguide.html - anyone can submit a report saying almost anything to this database; they are not verified to be accurate in any way. Any information coming from that database (and other like it) should be taken with a hefty dose of salt.
  5. Vaccine requirements to go to school have been around for ages; another one is nothing new. If your job requires it, get it or find a new job. Better yet, get it to protect yourself and others, and then don't worry about what your job requires or doesn't require. It is also in the context of it being required for jobs in healthcare, elder care, airlines - all jobs where you come into contact with sick or vulnerable people, or many people of indeterminate status every day. Flying on a plane is not a fundamental human right. The Dr. Malone from that interview has been pushing very questionable interpretations for many years. Here is a good article about it: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2021/08/robert-malone-vaccine-inventor-vaccine-skeptic/619734/ To quote the article "He's fucking up his chance at a Nobel Prize." Please stop conflating these two things. The side effects from the AZ shot (not even an mRNA vaccine) in the article you linked were 417 cases and 72 deaths out of nearly 49,000,000 doses - that particular blood clot has a ~0.00015% chance to show up, and shows up basically exclusively in women. The rate of getting similar blood clots from birth control is ~0.065% per year (0.3% to 1% increased risk over 10 years), making it more than 400x more likely than getting it from the shot. And yet women everywhere still use hormonal birth control without a second thought. With billions of doses of mRNA vaccines administered around the world, if there was some awful side effect in any significant percentage, it would have shown up already. It is not picking your poison - it is picking between protecting yourself and others , and picking to not even care about yourself.
  6. That's not what the study says. Here is the link to the full pre-print text. https://poseidon01.ssrn.com/delivery.php?ID=887104096000094083102017026126067007027014046014006078009029107034057005125018082036021107003003031066108015074011070007013115043054002048031094030106042017013088028076055101055013064074117031108059012094054093008003124022104091097114088095007126023027107067024028093100070022024127073000110&EXT=pdf&INDEX=TRUE I would note that as a pre-print study, it has not yet been peer reviewed. Peer review could find flaws in the data or analysis that would negate the study's conclusions. However, the study does not make any conclusions about vaccinated people as a whole group. It says that for these 62 people who had breakthrough infections, their viral load (as calculated by their own, in-house formula, which may or may not be accurate) was much higher than the general viral load for a random infected person picked off the street. This would be quite good evidence that the vaccine works - they needed to be exposed to much, much more than the average amount of virus in order to generate an infection, and they all recovered uneventfully. It is also not surprising that, as health care workers, they would come into contact with higher virus concentrations than the average person.
  7. I'm about the same ftk size and I ordered a Small in the Hyperlite pads. Fits me perfectly.
  8. Those choices have very public consequences. https://defector.com/private-choices-have-public-consequences/
  9. No, the Ultrasonic arms (even beefed up) are very mobile.
  10. I currently use a Hyperlite C/A with beefed up Ultrasonic arms and I am loving it. It is very light and mobile while still being protective; haven't had a stinger yet. This chest protector also comes with a loop at the bottom of the spine, which you can attach to the back of your pants. This will help prevent the back part from riding up and pushing the shoulders up. I also wear mine untucked and haven't had any issues when using this method. I circled it on the picture below.
  11. Is this the Axis or EF5 pro palm? I didn't have any issues with protection or closure when I was using the True 20.1 Game Ready+ 580.
  12. Extra Bicep and Rib protection are included in the "Russian Spec". If you don't want the segmented shoulders, you should specify that, as they are also standard in the "Russian Spec" version. In my opinion, the segmented shoulders do help you feel a less stiff. Regular shoulders vs. Segmented: Also note above the regular bicep protection (left) vs. "Russian spec" extra bicep protection (right). I honestly don't think that shoulder lifts/extra width/raised edges is worth it. To me, the angle a shot would have to come at that a goal would be prevented by any of those mods is so rare, but the extra weight and restriction on head and shoulder/arm mobility is constant! I tried tucking vs. not tucking and still prefer wearing all my chest protectors untucked. If you're concerned about it shifting, you can request a "fight strap" be added to the bottom of the spine at the back - you can connect this to the loop at back of your pants even when untucked.
  13. Mine is incredibly protective and surprisingly mobile for its bulk, but was way too hot for the summer heat in Texas. I'll break it out again when the weather cools down some; for now I'm using a beefed up Hyperlite.
  14. The stock length of the nylon knee strap was not long enough to make it there without excessive tightness, from my experience. I had to open up the knee stack velcro and shift the position of the strap end to get it to work - ymmv.
