“Ever since I became a stunt performer, Xion Pg has been my go-to protective gear! All their items are low profile, the most discrete of any protective pads I have come across, which is great when you have limited space in your film costume. Their D30 technology allows me to move and mould the shape of the pads so that I am comfortable but when an impact happens, they instantly harden and protect me from injury.
One of my favourite items is the shortsleeve Jacket Pro! I use this for everything from fight scenes in films to stair falls and even car knockdowns, all of which I have walked away unscathed, ready to go again”.
Thank You Xion for having me as one of the family and keeping me safe.
