I’ve been receiving some PM’s since posting a picture of my Vaughn Ventus LT90 chest guard asking what are the differences and improvements of this chest guard vs. the 9500 Vision from 2012, so I decided to make a quick ‘review’ about the new LT90 chest.
Vaughn Ventus LT90 (White/Powder/Met Gold/Navy) vs. Vaughn 9500 (Black/Powder)
The shoulder floater shape has been redesigned to be a bit wider and more square.

The shoulder cap on the LT90 has been extended down further to cover the arm pit.

The Sternum protector has been lengthened on the new LT90.

The new LT90 has a removable cushion pillow behind the shoulder floater, like the Velocity line has.
In addition, Vaughn has also added a much needed triceps protector to the arms.

I hope that answers some of your questions. Feel free to ask here or message me with any questions. I’ll try to update this in a few weeks after some more use.
