    Chest guard for a child

    I'm after a chest guard for my daughter who is 10. Baggy clothing and extra layers for winter are causing the strost to catch. Any recommendations for a 10 year old?

    I saw another archer of a similar age recently with a kind of wearable one by that I mean it was a bit like half a tight t shirt with a velcro strap. However I can't find these anywhere.

    A tight t shirt would work fine. No need for velcro straps; they just allow for growth.
    I have a long sleeved base layer undergarment which, if worn on top of baggy clothes, would keep the string away from a baggy sleeve on the bow arm, too.
    I actually use a cycling arm warmer on my bow arm to keep baggy sleeves well away from the string.

    Thanks for those links, the first one was the kind of thing I'd seen,

    I ended up ordering an XS regular type one and am crossing my fingers that it will fit OK! I was placing an order with a particular archery shop for some other bits and popped it in with the order. If it doesn't work, I'll order that one that was posted above.

    Thanks again.
