Customer Reviews for Gilbert Blitz Rugby Body Armour

  • 5 out of 5 Body Armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (19 Feb 2016)

    Brilliant product and good value for money. buy a size larger than you need as it will leave growing room. great product and nice matching colours!

  • 5 out of 5 Great product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (29 Oct 2015)

    This product was purchased for my 12 year old. It provides excellent protection and at the same time allows the body to breathe. It washes well with the protective pads retaining their shape. Overall I would give this product a 5 star rating.

  • 3 out of 5 Body Armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (29 Mar 2015)

    I bought this for my son, the only downside Is the shoulder pads very flimsy and uncomfortable Solve this and it will be a very good product.

  • 3 out of 5 Gilbert Blitz Rugby Body Armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (4 Mar 2015)

    Quite pleased with it - however on the first wash the colours did run quite badly. I bought the green and black one. Luckily it's worn underneath!

  • 5 out of 5 Smart Protection

    Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Jan 2015)

    My youngest son really likes this, which means he will use it. Looks are important with kids being so self conscious but this is well made and the padding is sown in unlike some other brands where the foam padding falls out.

  • 5 out of 5 my niece loves it

    Newitts Verified Purchase (15 Jan 2015)

    delivered quickly - just what she wanted. Your website is easy to use - thank you. Though the site might better reflect the number of girls playing rugby!

  • 5 out of 5 Fab Product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (23 Oct 2014)

    Very pleased with this body armour for my son. It's comfortable, practical and another layer of warmth with the oncoming cold weather. Great !!

  • 4 out of 5 Gilbert Blitz Rugby Body Armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (20 Oct 2014)

    This is a great product and meets with my son's approval! He is especially pleased with the ease of movement it allows him. He's able to run and pass comfortably, as well as tackle. The padding on the shoulders offer good protection without being too bulky. The garment is very light but still does a good job. A good buy.

  • 5 out of 5 Great stuff

    Newitts Verified Purchase (16 Oct 2014)

    My son loves this top and I love it because it's so easy to spot him during rugby practice (he choose the lime green version). Efficient delivery too!

  • 5 out of 5 Well fitting armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Sep 2014)

    Bought for my teenage son who reports this armour to fit well and very comfortable with padding in all the right places. I report a fantastic price and very good quality.

  • 5 out of 5 It's perfect

    Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Sep 2014)

    My 9 year old son is thrilled with it. He is quite chunky so wnet for the large. A good fit with a bit of extra space for growth. Would recommend it and great colour so won't get lost!!K

  • 4 out of 5 reg Blitz armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (7 Sep 2014)

    Fits well and offers good protection, only criticism would be that the plastic embellishments started falling off after second wash. Since the armour has to be washed up to 4 times a week, there will soon be no stickers left.

  • 4 out of 5 Great colours, snug fit.

    Newitts Verified Purchase (3 Dec 2013)

    Bought this for my skinny 11year old. After reading reveiws we went for the medium boys & it fits but is snug. My son loves the colours but would have liked a bit more padding especially on the chest. Having said that the amount of padding seems to be standard across all the makes we looked at and at least the Gilbert has arm pads too. Haven't washed it yet but so far so good.

  • 4 out of 5 Gilbert Blitz Body Armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (24 Nov 2013)

    Prompt delivery from Newitts, great colours - boys really pleased with the fit. Comfortable & easy to wear. Only downside was being handwash only - not much fun when there is loads of other kit to wash!

  • 5 out of 5 worth every penny

    Newitts Verified Purchase (2 Oct 2013)

    I bought this for my son and he loves it. I have bought under pads in the past, but none like these, they wash brilliantly and are very comfortable to wear, the pads dont bend are come out in the wash, they are definatley worth every penny

  • 5 out of 5 Gibert Blitz Rugby Body Armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (27 Sep 2013)

    Very happy with this product and the cost is reasonable in that it doubles as an "underarmour" layer also. The padding on the shoulders is not too bulky and my son feels very comfortable wearing it. I would recommend without hesitation.

  • 4 out of 5 Gilbert blitz under armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (11 Sep 2013)

    They are a very suitable padding choice for anyone at school level rugby they are highly visible so you won't lose them thus are a very good choice for purchase.
