Description

A chest guard for use in the sport of archery. Although lightweight, this nylon mesh guard helps to support the chest when it expands as air is drawn in in preparation for releasing the arrow. It also helps to contain any loose garments and prevent them from touching the arrow or the bow string thus ensuring the flight of the arrow is unimpeded. The guard is constructed from moulded nylon mesh with flexible platic trims and an adjustable elasticated strap. It is worn over the shoulder of the arm which holds the bow and fastens under the arm, on the side of the chest with a hook and loop panel. The straps are attached to the mesh with metal press studs and joined by a metal split ring. This example is complete with its original packaging.
