I have always been a fan of EVS products and purchased the R4 neck brace for my 8 year old son. The brace fits him very well and he has no complaints wearing it. Easy on and off with the EVS chest protector. Great brace for the price!

It does what it's supposed to. My sons confidence doubled as soon as he put it on.
It didn't take any time at all for my 9 y/o son to get used to wearing it. We put it on the first time several months ago, and he has never had a single complaint regarding comfort or mobility since. It appears that it will do what it is intended to in a crash, and Mom is happy!
Bought for my 5 year old sonn I wanted something more beefier than a foam neck brace this works great for Him I am looking at one for me niw
My 6 year old son wears this and I'm very glad I bought it as he has been in several wrecks with other riders and also jumping accidents and has always come out on the good side.........I'm a paramedic and I can see the way the video shows how it protects from breaking callor bones is a plus.......and the brace is very affordable...
The brace is comfortable and doesn't restrict mobility. I hope that I can never respond to its overall safety value but it looks like it will do its intended job well.
