Vaughn Velocity V Elite Carbon Senior Chest & Arm Protectors

Taking a proven design and tweaking it to perfection, Vaughn has kept their golden standard in chest protectors with the release of the Vaughn Pro V Elite Carbon.

Taking large inspiration from the V7 XR chest protector, the Vaughn V Elite Carbon senior goalie chest protector keeps the same huge profile and trusted protection, but adds some quality of life changes to make the chest even easier to live with. These upgrades include suspender straps on the shoulder floaters to help them from slipping down off the arms if the goalie decides to use suspenders over the chest protector.

Vaughn has also added a button system where pants are usually tied into the chest protector. By allowing for a quick attach system, goalies no longer have to struggle with untying the double-triple knot that was tied to make sure it stayed attached during the game.

While adding these new features, the Vaughn V Elite Carbon chest protector still maintains the same tall shouldered profile, and made in Canada quality that has been expected of Vaughn pro chests at this point. The chest also features Vaughn's Carbon Enhanced Performance to lighten up the chest while also maintaining the expected high level of protection.

Revamping a classic is exactly what Vaughn was trying to do with the V Elite Carbon chest protector, and they have achieved this.

Goalie Chest 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. The first step is to approximate the size using the sizing charts listed on any individual chest protector’s product page on our website; usually this is accomplished by matching an arm span or height to a given size.


After a size has been approximated, the goaltender is going to want to make sure of the following criteria to ensure an ideal fit.

  • 1) The arms end just before the wrist bone—this is important to ensure wrist straps on blockers/trappers have little interference. For growing goalies, just over the wrist bone is a good rule of thumb; this still provides ample room for the gloves while usually lasting the owner 1.5 - 2 years. Some models come with adjustable arm lengths, which is ideal for goaltenders that have longer/shorter arm proportions or are growing.
  • 2) The elbows fit securely in the pocket of the plastic protector and don’t shift too far away from them.
  • 3) The belly portion extends to the waistline if worn outside the pant and allows the goaltender to crouch comfortably. If the goalie is growing or he/she likes to tuck the chest protector into the pants this length can usually be extended by ~2” – 4”.
  • 4) The shoulder caps sit square on the wearer and wrap around the body rather than protruding upwards and interfering with the goalie’s ability to turn their head. In addition, there is a small gap between the collar and neck of the wearer; here we want to allow the head to look downwards while at the same time making sure there’s complete coverage while the goalie’s head is lowered in the ready position.

After you’ve confirmed that the chest/arm meets these criteria for the most part, it is always a good idea to see how well it integrates with your goal pants, mask and gloves. The goaltender should be able to get in and out of the crouch without excess mask/pant interference; gloves shouldn’t be pushed from the arm and a full ROM should be achieved for all save selections in addition to puck handling.


New units are usually stiff, but with time movement and overall comfort will improve. The best way to speed up the break-in process is steam, it is recommended to stay away from direct washing/excess water to prevent premature foam break down.
