Replaces my Vaughn 7450
Pros: Helped improve my game, Easy to use, Great value, Quality, Features, protection
Cons: all velcro straps
This chesty replaces my Vaughn 7450 which was good, but since I started facing recently retired AHL/FHL/NCAA-D1 players the 7450 protection broke down quickly. The two chesty's are constructed almost identical, but their are major differences that I will outline.
Shoulders:
7450 has 2 layers of protection, The 7600 has 4 layers of protection and 1 layer is removable so you could make it 3 layers if you choose. The 4th layer is Velcro-ed on the inside of the outer shoulder pad.
Stern plate:
7450 has 2 layers, 7600 has 3 layers
Ribs:
7450 does not have wing flaps that protect on the inside of the arm high in the rib cage area. The 7600 has removable flaps that protect in this area. (they are Velcro-ed on).
Sizing:
I am 5'10", 180lbs, arm span of 71" and the 7450 fit me very roomy/on the larger side. Even the head hole (collar area) was much larger/roomier than I would have preferred it. The arm protection was an inch too long and ran right into my glove/blocker. The 7600 has adjustable arm length and collar area allowing the 7600 chesty to fit my actual dimensions (custom fit), a feature the 7450 does not have. I'm ecstatic that the 7600 is very customizable making the chesty truly contour to my body sizing.
The only CON:
All of the 7600 adjustable straps are Velcro, including over the shoulder harness's (straps), the 7450 used adjustable standard belt straps that are more durable.
The 4/5 stars for Design was because of the all Velcro strapping system, durability in this area is questionable. I rated 5/5 stars in Durability because the 7450 materials held up exceptionally well, the issue with the 7450 was protection against the quality of shots I was facing.

Vaughn 7600 CP
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
Cons: Expensive
This is a great chest protector designed for a blocking style goaltender. While this has been designed for blocking style of play it still manages to allow very good arm mobility, but not nearlly as good as the Vaughn 9500. It has large shoulder floaters and excellent arm protection. It is very adjustable and will prolly take some time to dial in perfect.If you are blocking/positioning style goalie looking for better coverage with good arm mobility buy the 7600, If your are more of a reacting/athletic style goalie and want freedom of movement with incredible arm mobility buy the 9500. Both are tanks and are pretty much even on protection. The Difference: 7600 More coverage, less mobility. 9500 More mobility, less coverage.

Everything I hoped for
Pros: Helped improve my game, Great value, Quality, Easy to use, Features
Worth every penny. I was getting hit every time I skated so I decided to upgrade. The V4 doesn't move as freely as my old set. There are so many different ways to adjust them though, it took a little feeling out, but now I have finally got the right setup. It is still a little difficult looking over my shoulder when the pucks behind the net but the only problem with design flaws is the extended flaps for your ribs; they keep flipping inward and need to be moved back during play. I haven't got hurt once since buying this even with the sprawling shots.
