Paintball Chest Protectors

Paintball chest protectors are a great piece of protective gear that guards your torso with additional padding and protection. Chest protectors not only protect you from paintball strikes, they also protect your chest and upper abdomen from falls, scratches, and other accidents during the game. Chest protectors are usually made with high-impact foam, gel, or some other cushioning agent and combined with a lightweight material to avoid adding unnecessary extra weight. Many paintballers have found that chest protectors are worth their weight in gold and have saved them from many falls, impacts, and scrapes. We highly recommend the use of chest protectors to minimize any injuries during paintball.

Empire Paintball Chest Protector & Where They DON'T Protect

HK Army Crash Chest Protector

The HK Army Crash Chest Protector is designed for high-impact performance, prioritizing comfort and flexibility. It features a contour, dual-layered pad system that effectively absorbs shock and reduces the impact of hits. Made from durable and lightweight materials, this chest protector offers fluid mobility and breathability, making it comfortable to wear. Its 4-way stretch inner lining not only increases coverage but also acts as a cooling agent on hot days. Key features include enhanced comfort and durability, high-impact padding, and a custom HK Army trim. Additionally, it has flexible lycra side panels for added mobility and fit.

Carbon SC Pro Top

The lightweight compression protective top is designed as an upper body layer for active use, made from a technical blend of 85% polyester and 15% spandex for enhanced breathability and range of motion. This long-sleeve shirt is tailored to stay in place and provide precise protection while cooling the body during extreme activities. It includes built-in dual layer elbow pads and gauntlet-style thumb/wrist loops. Key features of the garment are its 4-way stretch fabric for a natural range of motion, an extended relaxed fit torso for added comfort, and gauntlet style thumb loops to minimize movement. The shirt utilizes flat lock stitching to minimize irritation, a low-profile compression fit for a minimalist approach, and moisture-wicking, quick-dry material to keep the wearer dry and cool, which also airs out and dries quickly after play.

Tippmann Chest Protector

The Tippmann Chest Protector is designed to offer upper body protection during paintball play. It features adjustable Velcro straps for personalized comfort and is designed in a one-size-fits-most format, ensuring versatility and suitability for a wide range of players. This chest protector is essential for safety on the paintball field.
