FoilGuard uses the highest quality materials to make it the lightest, best fitting and most comfortable soft Foil overlay available. FoilGuard is fully moulded so it fits over your plastic chest guard perfectly in a slim line look. Competing products are sewn to approximate the shape of the chest guard and look bulky in comparison. We have taken no short cuts developing this product, and the quality shows! Sleek textured fabric, soft touch no scratch velcro, perfect fit for ultimate comfort.
Why we built this
FoilGuard has been developed by QP Sport in conjunction with the FIE to meet FIE rulebook section m.25.4.c relating to the mandatory use of a soft chest guard overlay in Foil fencing.
FoilGuard use is mandatory in FIE sanctioned Foil Fencing competition from 1 April 2018. As Chest Protection is compulsory for women, use of FoilGuard is also compulsory for women.
How it works
FoilGuard attaches to your existing Econoguard plastic chest protector by self-adhesive Velcro dot stickers supplied with FoilGuard. Apply the self-adhesive Velcro dot stickers to your chest guard, and the inside surface of the FoilGuard will stick directly to the Velcro dots. Easy!
You can apply and remove your FoilGuard many times, making it easy to wash or replace.
FoilGuard for women is available in 9 sizes to match QP Sport EconoGuard for women.
