Vaughn Chest & Arm Protector Fit

Between Vaughn’s two lines, Velocity and Ventus, the fit in the torsos are very similar; however, the Velocity line has longer arms than the Ventus line, size by size. When compared to their competitors, it’s the same story: torso lengths are fairly similar, but Velocity arm lengths are longer than most.

Goalie Chest & Arm Protector Sizing

Sizing a chest protector is important to ensure the goaltenders range of motion (ROM) is uninhibited, while still offering complete coverage from impact. There are steps necessary to finding the right fit in your chest protector, and the first is to know your measurements. Here at The Hockey Shop, we like to use two measurements: torso length and arm span. Once you have these two measurements, match your measurements to our sizing charts.

Sizing before Purchase

To fit your proper sized chest & arm protector, you will need a soft tape measurer, a pen and paper, and the assistance of a helper.



Arm Span
To measure your arm span, hold your arms out and measure from wrist to wrist. Start from the bottom of one forearm (you’ll see a bone where your wrist is) and measure to the other; make sure to not measure from fingertip to fingertip, as hand size is not relative to arm length.

Torso Length
    1. Have your helper locate the bony bump at the base of your neck (this is located where your shoulders meet your neck). This is your 7th cervical vertebra (C7).
    2. Place your hands on your hips, point your fingers down, and your thumbs in a horizontal position around your back, forming an imaginary line.
    3. Taking the tape measurer, have your helper measure from your C7 to the imaginary line, and you will have your torso length.

Once you have these two measurements, cross-reference them with our available sizing chart.

Sizing after Purchase

After receiving your chest & arm, you are going to want to check if your size fits the following criteria:

    1. The arms end just before your wrist. This is important because you want to ensure that the wrist portion of the arms do not interfere with your blocker and trapper—this still provides adequate growing room for the blocker and trapper, which usually last you 1 to 2 years. Depending on the model, adjustable arms may be an offered feature, which is an added bonus for goaltenders that are still growing.
    2.Your elbows fit securely in to the pocket of the elbow protection, and do not shift too far away from them. Keep in mind, arms usually have to be adjusted while putting on your chest & arm.
    3.Make sure the shoulders of the chest & arm are sitting comfortably atop, and wrapped around your shoulders. This can be seen visually by looking at the collar of the chest & arm; you want the collar

Each brand of chest & arms will have not only a different shape, but also a slightly different fit.
