GP Plus R V3
Primary Material Leather
This garment is fitted with impact protectors for the elbows and shoulders. A pocket is provided for an aftermarket back protector. Replacing the elbow and shoulder armour with higher performing impact protectors would improve the protection levels of this garment.
There are perforated leather panels in the chest and back to allow airflow movement through the garment.
