FoilGuard has been developed by QP Sport in conjunction with the FIE to meet FIE rulebook section m.25.4.c relating to the mandatory use of a soft chest guard overlay in Foil fencing.

FoilGuard uses the highest quality materials to make it the lightest, best fitting and most comfortable soft Foil overlay available. FoilGuard is fully moulded so it fits over your plastic chest guard perfectly in a slim line look. Competing products are sewn to approximate the shape of the chest guard and look bulky in comparison. We have taken no short cuts developing this product, and the quality shows!

FoilGuard use is mandatory in FIE sanctioned Foil Fencing competition from 1 April 2018.

FoilGuard attaches to your existing men’s MasterGuard plastic chest guard by self-adhesive Velcro dot stickers supplied with FoilGuard. Apply the self-adhesive Velcro dot stickers to your chest guard, and the inside surface of the FoilGuard will stick directly to the Velcro dots. Easy!

You can apply and remove your FoilGuard many times.


Revised FIE Rule:
c) At all weapons, the use of a breast/chest protector (made of metal or some rigid material) is  compulsory for women and optional for men. At foil, this breast/chest protector must be worn below the protective plastron.
At foil, the protector will have the following characteristics: The entire outside of the chest protector (the side facing the opponent) must be covered with a soft material such as E.V.A. (Ethylene-vinyl acetate) of four mm thickness and density of 22kg/m3.
(The material can be attached to the current plastic models or incorporated into the manufacture of new chest protectors). The material must have the SEMI technical mark at the center of the upper edge
Implementation: from the 2018 J & C World Championships in April in Verona.
