Rugby is a rough sport and your body is subjected to a fair amount of abuse, whether on the training ground or during a match. Thankfully, body armour goes a long way to alleviating the stresses and impact caused upon your upper body, providing effective support and protection where it matters most.
Leading names in rugby, including Canterbury, Optimum, Kooga and Gilbert, have all leant their expertise to creating a selection of body armour for all sizes and ages. Designed to be worn under rugby clothing, body armour fits close to the skin whilst ensuring freedom of movement and breathability during the heat of activity.
From strategically placed pads, as featured on the Gilbert Virtuo body armour, to the Optimum Pulse Top which uses OPT-HEX protection to absorb impact and spread it across a wider surface area. The emphasis is always on protection and comfort with body armour, giving you confidence when tackling your opponents.
