Cool idea but apparently, it doesn't fit BOB XL - Century, show some love for the BOB XL owners and give us a jacket for that product!
Great idea, poor design
There are 3 straps that are supposed to be looped, tightened and velcro-ed but the shape of BOBs back can only fit the bottom strap. The top buckle broke from the strap immediately upon tightening and the middle strap was collapsing and folding the "skin layer" of BOBs torso, so I had to leave it unbuckled fearing that I may damage my BOB. It appears as though the velcro fasteners are misplaced and do not fit properly because it's near impossible to reach the velcro without damaging BOB. The truth is that the idea of parrying while striking would be awesome, but it feels like they engineered this thing without an actual BOB to design from so it could fit properly. PS, I think the youtube install video (from 6 years ago) needs update because there are some details of the version jacket I received that was different. A positive of the product is that the jacket part feels tough, so if the strapping system could be fixed it could be a good product.
Next level training
It can be a little difficult to put on BOB without help from a second person, but once it’s on it’s amazing! I love having arms to work with and against in my training.
Make sure it is the right BOB
Make sure you have BOB XL before you order the arms. I ordered regular BOB (101693) and the jacket does not fit. By the time we got the new area and I was able to set him up it was too late to return the arms.
Doesn’t fit the Bob XL. Disappointed 😔 but I’ll make it work.
BOB Jacket is an excellent training aid! All my students from children to adults enjoying using it. I myself as the instructor have enjoyed it very much!
Takes Bob to another level of training. Practice blocks while hitting realistic targets. If you are training for self-defense, Bob and the jacket are must haves.
