Destroyer Modz Roughneck Gorget
Most HEMA clubs and tournaments require some level of trachea protection. This low-profile gorget features a hard, curved piece of plastic, backed by padding to help protect against a shot to the throat. The shape of the plastic should help prevent blades from slipping up past the gorget into the lower jaw. The Velcro strap is easy to put on and adjust and should last for years of use.
The Roughneck gorget is usually selected by those who want minimum bulk without the additional protection offered by our Simple Gorget.
This is a great low profile gorget and greatly improves range of motion when wearing a fencing jacket. My previous gorget is a Red Dragon which has a bib, and I was finding it very restricting to head movement both up and down and side to side, as well as somewhat choking me when bending my head downwards. The Destroyer Modz fixes all those issues - moving my head in all directions is no problem, and I feel much less constrained, but no less protected.
Note that I don't think this would be safe to wear without a jacket; a sword thrust could get under the plastic plate and the minimal padding underneath wouldn't protect you. I'm keeping my other gorget for drilling without a jacket.
I used a few of the simple gorgets for years before I got this one, and its is like night and day. The gorget is very easy to put on and is a low enough profile that it does not get in the way when fighting. I would highly recommend this to any one looking for a gorget to use under a jacket.
