The hard exterior plastic shield protects from puck impact, and the soft interior absorbs impact energy for comfort against the body.
Moulded high density plastic follows the intimate contours of the body for all angle protection.
Long lasting velcro and heavy duty elastic holds the jill in position as you make the big saves.
The main reason for the soft interior padding is impact absorption, but it also feels really comfortable against the body. Plush interior foam padding is over 1" (2.5cm) thick.
A snug fit (not tight) is how the waist and hip elastics should feel, just enough tension to keep the jill positioned.
Fit tip: It should be comfortable to wear.
The large elastic bands sit comfortably around your hips, waist and thighs.
We know you will have many years of enjoyment and protection from your equipment, and that's why we carefully choose the most durable and high quality materials.
We use elastics that maintain strong elasticity for many years, even under heavy use.
Heavy duty thread is used in all areas, and lightweight 210/420 denier nylon easily handles years of punishment.
Velcro tends to age the more you use it, and ours maintains grip even after many years.
The shield is approximately 8" (20cm) wide with a 6" (15cm) rise from the contour to the waist band.
