- Product Description
Defender Skin is a protective padded athletic tape. The light, flexible and extremely versatile second skin helps protect athletes against scrapes, cuts, bruising, and other abrasive injuries commonly associated with impact during sports. Defender Skin is a breathable adhesive that also absorbs impact and distributes it throughout tiny pieces of padded foam which acts as padding. This padded athletic tape is popular among football, basketball, lacrosse, baseball, hockey, and rugby players. Fitness enthusiasts use the protective tape to shield their knees and elbows through yoga, bootcamp workouts, tabata exercises and more. Defender skin can also be used for outdoor sports, action sports, endurance races, or any type of activity where you need skin protection. You can see some of your favorite NFL and college football players sporting Defender Skin for protection in place of traditional padding.

- I'm a soccer goalie and I'm wondering if I could use this on my hips to prevent turf burn when diving. I also hurt my shoulder a year ago, dislocating it. I'm wondering if putting this on my shoulder could soften the impact when I dive.
- Defender Tape can be used for both of those things

- what is defender skin made of? have sensitive skin
- The material composition of our Defender Skin product consists of a polyurethane tape, adhesive, and neoprene. Please refer to clinical summaries for both the tape and adhesive.
The neoprene foam is synthetic rubber based and to the best of my knowledge will not cause a reaction for those allergic to the proteins present in natural rubber latex, e.g. "Synthetic rubbers such as elastane, neoprene, and artificially synthesized polyisoprene latex do not contain the proteins from the Hevea brasiliensis tree"

Cool pads!I used the protective tape twice. The first time I placed them on my upper chest (just around the neckline), I was comfortable doing fast reps of power cleans. I believe the pads prevented some bruises that I normally get when doing similar CrossFit movements. I was sweating and the pads stayed on really well. Second time I used the pads on my knees and forearms during flag football. They were intimidating; however the pads didn't stay on very well when I made contact with the ground. I would suggest these are great for workouts but not with hard contact sports. Maybe offer different kinds of adhesive.
Works well in active joint spots if you clean then coverReturned to volleyball post acl recovery with the don joy active brace, however no knee pad would fit under it. So tried the defender active skin. After a few attempts, figured out the best way to make it stay in position on the knee. First always use a germ or alcohol wipe first and let dry, then apply and cover with a compression sleeve to make a knee pad. Don joy please make a knee pad that will work with your active brace for post knee surgery.
