GEL-TO-Shell Technology

EvoShield Protective Gear designed with signature Gel-to-Shell Technology™ is thinner, lighter, yet stronger gear designed to make athletes faster while protecting them better. Unlike foam and plastic protection that tends to be stiff and bulky, EvoShield is a patented light-weight, ultra-thin composite material that custom forms to the contours of each athlete’s body as it hardens.

Engineered to withstand high impact under the toughest conditions, the easy custom-molding process creates a unique protective layer that disperses impact to protect better than traditional protective gear. Mold your own one-of-a-kind, lightweight battle armor in minutes with our patented Gel-to-Shell Technology™.


Traditional foam and plastic gear absorb. We disperse. With EvoShield’s Dispersion Technology (DSP)™, the impact force is diffused across the ultrathin layers of our patented composite material. And, as the force is dispersed across layers, it is further dispersed across the entire surface area – the entire Shield, minimizing the felt force at the point of impact.

EvoShield's protective Shields are comprised of multiple ultra-thin protective layers that disperse the force of impact rather than absorb it. Dispersion Technology™ allows EvoShield to minimize the bulkiness of traditional padding while providing greater protection. Freedom to be faster. Confidence to be unstoppable.

Rushing to mold after opening foil pack

The product is great, but in my hurry to open the foil pack, put the pads in my son's shirt and finallly put the shirt on him so the pads could be molded, I did not realize the pads were marked 'L'(left) and 'R'(Right). so of course I put them on the wrong side. It doesn't really matter to me but when I am not around, my son will question that. Any way to remind customers on your packaging to identify the pads first before putting them in would be great. The pads have already been a success as my son got them in time for his first scrimmage and he said they definitely made a difference without getting in his way like the traditional rib protection does. Nice product but hopefully your pricing can come down, especially for the youth items. Tried to pitch them to my other parents and price clearly scared them of.

I bought EvoShield Rib shirt about a week ago and tried on last Friday's basketball game. First of all, the recommend size is little small. I measured my chest (39 inches) before ordered the shirt. Based on the recommendation from EvoShield, I ordered a medium sized shirt (36 to 40 inches), which turned out to be too tight for me. It became even worse after one and half hour basketball game -- it was so hard to get it off when the shirt is all wet. So I would recommend that you buy one size larger than recommended by EvoShield. Now I am worried I might tear the shirt up soon because it is so hard to get it off after the game (I already noticed some loose knit around armpit). I wish I had ordered a larger shirt. Maybe the shirt will become loosen after a while. I will update my review if things get better...

I love it!

I am always pleased with the Evo-shield product. My son is able to play baseball because of Evo-Shield!!! Due to a tumor is in his chest he had to have 5 ribs removed. These products provide the protection necessary and allows for comfort of movement. This order I was helped by Kane Kanavage. He was very helpful in helping to determine what product we needed. Thought we were going to have to special make a shirt but Kane found us an easier solution. The adult small fits perfect. Thank You!

The sizing chart you use is way off, A complete struggle to fit a Med shirt although my chest size is 38. Customer service sent a large out and I returned the Med, Waiting to try out the Large as soon as it arrives, Reveiwed poor until I have a chance to try out the correct size,

Thought the product was excellent but it is exceeded by the customer service. Ordered Chest and Rib Protector on December 21st. Made wrong entry and received wrong product. Made contact with customer on Christmas Eve and got replacement product just after Christmas. Quick replacement with no questions asked. Gotta love this company.


Rib protectors work great!

The rib protectors i bought for lacrosse, they take alot of the stress off your body and they absorb the shock from getting slashed or checked. Harden in about 30min. Very comfortable as well as light weight. almost as if you werent even wearing them. the only down side i have to them if getting the shirt on and off with the plates already in them.

This product has been great for my boy's in football. The only thing I would like to see is on the youth rib protection shirts, I wish they had the extra shoulder padding on them like the adult shirts do. Other than that these things are awesome.
