This throat guard is not too bad, it has its ups and downs. its a very tall guard which makes it good for surface area protection and it is very durable, but the shape of the design is what brings it down. when looking from side to side it gets caught up on my chest protector and occasionally gets turned vertically from the ice. it obstructs the view when i have to try to look through it and the rattle it makes when in that position is annoying. when it gets stuck vertically it opens up my neck which takes away the protection
overall its a good bang for your buck and protective, but when i have to look from side to side it gets caught up on my chest protector a lot.
