This product is designed to provide protection without impeding the movement of the body against the risk of injury that could be caused by missiles thrown or skated, strikes by batons, poles or bars, kicks, punches and catapulted missiles that may be used against officers in operational or training scenarios.
Level 2 Guards have been shown to resist displacement from limbs and torso to a level beyond that required by BS 7971-4. They have been assessed for comfort when worn for extended periods of time, ease of donning and any restriction to normal movement during physical activity and have been shown to have an excellent ergonomic score for
the requirements of BS 7971-1.
Thigh Guards are in pairs. Yellow Velcro on the thigh strap signifies the right leg. Each guard is secured with two straps, one secures the guard to the leg, the other feed around the wearers belt and thus secures to the waist.
