Unknown jaw protector / combo shield

Recommended Posts

Hi!
 
About a year ago I've seen some pics of mr. Putin playing hockey with a weird jaw protector under his half shield.
 
Seems like it is less cumbersome than traditional Bauer combo (half shield + mask) and a more breathable than a full face shield like Concept III.The mounting points location is pretty interesting, too.
 
There was absolutely no info on the internet that I could find about this piece of equipment. The chin cup+strap is definetely from Bauer, but seems like it was added to the jaw protector later, cause there are no such pieces in any Bauer catalog.
 
Several weeks ago I have seen a guy in my beer league rocking the same exact piece. I asked him where did he get it, he told that his friend brought him one from his trip to Canada. He stated that this protector + half shield is much more comfortable and lighter than a combo or a full cage.
 
Maybe some of you could provide me some info about it? Manufacturer, product name, price, sizing, etc.
 
Thanks!

Avision have a new Zero Plus combo mask coming out soon, full 3" lens. It doesn't look the lightest but you will know it is rock solid in protection and the lens they use is good and the anti fog works well. http://hockeyfaceshields.com/

Interesting they don't do the full poly mask for adults anymore. Their original mask was GREAT. Their second version fogged up like crazy. And now they only have the combos. Nice to see they're increasing the shield size on the Zero Plus though. The current version is tiny. 

Still think I'll stick with a cage though.

On another note, I actually like the one Vladdy is sporting. Lets you use any shield you want or are used to, and you just add the chicklets protector in addition. It's ugly AF but may be a better option than a combo for the guys who are used to wearing just a visor.
