The RibSaver is the only shield that truly lives up to its name. The Rib-Saver was designed to help withstand and absorb impact. The crescent shaped second pad that lies between the ribs and the arm has a different density foam than the main shield which helps to absorb and dissipate the impact of the strongest kicks. Extremely useful for both male and female MMA practitioners. Heavy duty foam, vinyl and stitching on the bag and straps insures long term durability and use. Patent Pending. Measures 27" high, 16-1/2" wide and is 6" thick.
