Added protection for keepers who play “Dutch” style
I’ve got another idea/ alteration that I’ve done, this time based on bicep protection…
If we look at products that offer bicep protection they often come in the ice hockey style protectors (not a big fan these)
I wanted to show you lovely keepers an idea based on the “Chris Hibbert” bicep protectors
I recommend this for keepers who play a “dutch” style (no arm pads) (like me) away of having a little added protection but full arm movements
You will need OBO Cloud arm pads (the ones you buy individually not the ones that come with the Cloud Armour)
Here are the 5 stages to having your own OBO bicep protectors!!!
Stage one depending on the size of your arm, choose which part of the arm guard will fit snug on your bicep. Me being a small guy (nothing wrong with that) i use the part which is originally meant to go around your forearm as the bicep protection.
Stage 2 undo the straps and splay out
Stage 3 with your trusty Stanley knife cut off along the soft stretchy part in the middle of the arm guard and continue all the way around
Stage 4 remove the last strap remaining on the new found bicep (shown on the photo above) To get the best position i found putting the guard on the opposite arm and make sure the end part (grey part) of the arm guard is facing down your arm
This is the arm guard with the new style Robo body armour
Stage 5 Enjoy
