#6 -- Duke University -- Defensive Midfielder
Why I Use JackalJaw:
- "This will be my 3rd season wearing Jackal."
- "When we first got them, I thought it was just another chinstrap, but it's a lot more comfortable, it fits your face very well and with safety becoming a big part of the game, I just feel more safe and more secure wearing this chinstrap."
- "The chinstrap really hasn't been upgraded and it's a big improvement over the last one."
- "While I'm playing, it's formed to my face, so as a defensive midfielder, if I give him a hard jam or lean my head into his shoulder, I feel like my face is super steady, I'm not really moving around compared to the old chinstrap I felt like it was a little loose, and my head had some wiggle."
- "At the start, I wasn't sure about this extra pad right here, but once you put it on, you don't even notice it at all."
- "The material on the chinstrap is so much softer that you'll never scratched up like you do with some of the old ones."
- "If you look at a helmet from the 1970's, everything else has been modified, except the chinstrap and I think there was room for innovation and Jackal Jaw did a really good job hitting on all those main points."
