We touched base with Indy to find out what she thought about the vest.
“It felt very comfortable, so comfortable I often forgot I was wearing it. Definitely boosted my confidence. I wasn’t afraid to tackle or be tackled. When I hit the ground I felt confident and the protection of the vest helped with the ground impact. Didn’t hinder my performance and it also wasn’t to hot to wear.”
