Customer Reviews for Gilbert Triflex XP1 Rugby Body Armour

  • 5 out of 5 Highly rated protection

    Newitts Verified Purchase (1 Dec 2015)

    Used by my son, who fits a large boys size well (at 5'4" and 32" chest). The top is stretchy, so fits snugly under a rugby shirt, but should remain a good fit through the next growth spurt. It's reported as "boss" (very good?), and as offering a good level of protection ("can't feel any knocks"). It's well made and standing up well to 2 or 3 wearings a week and associated washings, after which it dries quickly. Altogether a very satisfactory buy that I recommend for other rugby-mad kids.

  • 4 out of 5 Body Armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (1 Nov 2015)

    Just the job for ferocious son who plays too often! Good protection, washes well and dries quickly. Size is as stated.

  • 5 out of 5 Well worth the Investment

    Newitts Verified Purchase (13 Apr 2015)

    I bought for my son who had worn pads for a couple of years as a junior. I was concerned when playing a year up for the County 17's he needed more protection. The difference is chalk and cheese between Junior pads and these. I would highly recommend and well worth the money and they don't make him look like RoboCop either. Happy all round.

  • 5 out of 5 Excellent body armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (28 Jan 2015)

    I have a large, 6ft tall, 14 year old son who I bought the large size of the blue top for. It fits really well with a little room to grow. He is very conscious of what he wears and wouldn't use it if it didn't look good. The apdding is really good, better than the Kipsta equivalents IMHO.

  • 5 out of 5 Great bit of kit

    Newitts Verified Purchase (20 Oct 2014)

    Bought for my son and he loves it. Good padding and good fit. Quick delivery too. Really great service. Thanks

  • 5 out of 5 Good kit

    Newitts Verified Purchase (15 Oct 2014)

    This is a good body armour which gives increased confidence going into a hard tackle and offers some protection from studs when on the ground. The sizing is accurate, so for a good fit don't buy over large.

  • 5 out of 5 Great Rugby Body Armour

    Newitts Verified Purchase (27 May 2014)

    Excellent under armour, fits perfectly underneath rugby shirt. Protects against injury and gives you peace of mind when going into tackles.

  • 4 out of 5 collarbone protection

    Newitts Verified Purchase (6 Mar 2014)

    Bought this product specifically to protect a long tern injury. So far the results are good. And newitts had the best range to choose from and helped when I had specific questions before I ordered.

  • 5 out of 5 Excellent product

    Newitts Verified Purchase (2 Jan 2014)

    My son is delighted. It provides excellent padding whilst being easy to wear. As a parent it provides peace of mind during tackles or scrums! As ever, Gilbert have created a well designed product and Newitts have provided excellent value & service. Thank you

  • 5 out of 5 Great!

    Newitts Verified Purchase (21 Oct 2013)

    Looks great and is a good lightweight top with nice level of padding. Cuffs on arms hold it in place well. Fast delivery.

  • 4 out of 5 great top

    Newitts Verified Purchase (2 Oct 2013)

    my son loves this body armour top especially the fact that the fabric allows good air circulation.My only issue with it is I have to hand wash it!

  • 4 out of 5 Good - but not great

    Newitts Verified Purchase (24 Jul 2013)

    You know you're always going to get a good product from Gilbert - and this is no exception. The shoulder protection is brilliant, as is the long body length, which means it doesn't ruck up too easily (good for tall players...). My problem is with the loose pads, which I didn't have on my old Gilbert body armour. They move about on the arms and don't feel as secure as the shoulder pads. Good all-round kit, though. Haven't fully put them through their paces yet, but I'm sure they'll do fine.
