POC Joint VPD Shins:
VPD visco-elastic polymer dough of the Joint VPD Shins Guards from POC is some really great stuff. It has allowed POC to create softer and more flexible body armor that nearly equal their Bone series hard shell protection. Now for supreme abrasion resistance, Bone guards are still the best, but Joint VPD Pads are lighter and slimmer to fit better under jeans or race shorts.
- Material: VPD material - kind of like taffy, bends slowly, but it stiffens right up when you drive your fist into it
- Perforated neoprene in the back helps ventilate while holding the pad in place on your leg with a snug fit
- Stretchy aramid covering makes the whole thing quite durable, yet doesn't hinder the articulation and flexElasticized Velcro straps secure the pads at the very top and bottom
- Softer and more flexible body armor
- Lighter and slimmer for under jeans or race shorts fit
