Padded Shirts/Neck Guard Shirts

Padded shirts/vests provide coverage for exposed areas vulnerable to injury.
Chest, sternum, ribs, upper arms, back and shoulders benefit from fitted jerseys providing protection without being bulky. 
Jerseys are extremely light and don't restrict movement.
Upper body padding is popular with officials doing higher level hockey as protection from pucks, sticks and risks involved in breaking up fights.
Neck guard shirts have built-in BNQ & CE certified neck protection to protect against neck cuts/abrasions.
