Customer Questions & Answers for
Warrior Ritual Chest and Arm 2013

The Ritual Chest & Arm for 2013 takes many of it's design cues from the Ritual Pro model, but the protection is geared towards those at a Senior Pro level. Intermediate/Sr. Pro level goalies who are looking for a more traditional chest & arm design will appreciate the protection, mobility, and it's many unique features.For starters, the unit feature large, flexible HD faom shoulder floaters that extend farther down the torso than most other units. Sandwiched between these two floaters is an equally large HD foam sternum plate, and HD foam blocks sit beneath the floaters and sternum protection for an even greater level of protection. Beneath the shoulder floaters sit two additional HD foam plates which provide elite level coverage to the shoulder cap and armpit areas. The belly protection of the pad has attached LD foam protection sewn in to adequately cover the ribs and sides of the belly. The belly flap is hinged at the waist which allows it to expand slightly when crouching in the goalie's stance.Arm protection consists of HD foam pads up and down the arms, with large, hinged HD foam protection over the elbow joint. Large oval shaped HD foam pads cover the hinge in the arm floater for even more protection. The tapered arms fit nicely inside any goalie glove, and the rubber tabs at the end of the velcro adjustment straps make the straps easy to grab and adjust. Molded elbow caps provide excellent protection and comfort.Like the Ritual Pro, adjustable fit options on the Ritual include customization of the shoulder floater fit on the chest, Adjustable Chest Height straps on the spine plate, and adjustable arm lacing. The entire unit is made of Air mesh material for better mobility, and for faster drying.

Question
Size and amount of padding
Is there a difference in size and amount of padding between the Intermediate L/XL and the Senior S? I am 5'7" so I fall into the middle of both sizes' height range.

Not really, The intermediate might not have as much protection coverage as the seniors on you because it is a bigger size and if you are planning on wearing it for a while i would go with the senior so you can get more use out of it and not have to buy a new one when the intermediate gets too small.

Yes - padding will be slightly thinner on the INT L/XL, and the fit will be slightly thinner as well. At your age and skill level, I'd go with the Senior Small.

Size and padding?
I am 5'5" and I don't know what size to get. Also, how is the padding on this chesty? I have a vaughn vision and I am constantly getting the wind knocked out of me when I take a shot to the chest and stomach.

I'm 6'1", 185lbs and take the Senior Large size of this Warrior C&A. Fits me perfectly. You would probably be better off in a medium. This unit is super-adjustable in every way, so once you find the right size, you will be able to easily adjust it to fit you perfectly.

I have never had the wind knocked out of me with this unit. Very good protection all over - but especially with the wing pads and sternum plate.

Protection on this unit is good for the price, you aren't getting the protection level of the Pro unit but you retain good mobility and it has more then enough protection for your average goaltender.

I would probably recommend the medium for someone 5'5" and still growing. The arms are adjustable so you can tighten them up if they are too long right away.

Nice bruise !

The Warrior Ritual SR chest guard would be a great option for you. I find the Ritual SR offers a great balance of protection and mobility while having tons of adjustments for a perfect fit.

arm padding
what is the amount of arm padding on these chest pads? I have some really old ones and I have been getting a serious stinger or two about every time I play. I was just wondering if these can hold up to hard slapshots?

The Ritual SR chest guard has great protection for the price point. If you are playing pickup a couple times a week than this is a great chest guard for you.

Sizing Question
I'm interested in these pads for my son. I'm not sure if I should be looking at a Jr Large or an Int Sm/Med.

My Son is a bit under 5' tall. He has a 60" wing span. Pretty average athletic build.

any thoughts?

These units tend to run somewhat small in the belly, so my feeling is that a JR would be too short for someone who is 5' tall. Additionally, the padding in the JR was made for younger, smaller shooters. If your son is playing at an advanced level then you'll get better protection in the INT size.

Question
Attaching C/A to Pants
I like to tie my chest protector to my pants via the little loop that's in front of the C/A; is there a way to do that with this chest protector? I don't see the little loop on the front which my Vaughn protector has.

Thanks.

I would recommend tightening the straps as much as possible that still allows for a comfortable feel. This should stabilize the unit while in motion.

Midsection Size
I am 5'10" tall but I have a bit of a gut going on these days. Will the Large adjust enough in the midsection or should I go with the Extra large? We unfortunately do not have a place that sells gear anywhere near me to try stuff out.

Typically, the Warrior chest guards run long on the belly but shorter on the arms. As an example, I'm 5'7", and I could fit in either a Small or Medium according to the size chart. I found the small to fit perfectly in the arms, but short on the belly.

For you, I'd recommend that you go with the Large and then shorten the arms up as much as you can. I would recommend against going with the XL as it will probably be too big for your torso.

Hope that helps!
