When it comes to protecting your body during sport, you should never sacrifice comfort or performance. Defender Skin is the lightest, most flexible, and most versatile form of protection available to athletes today, no matter what game they play. It's a uniquely engineered, breathable adhesive second skin designed to defend the body against cuts, scrapes, burns, pain and bruising often associated with the impact and abrasion of rigorous sports.
Features & Benefits
- Impact Protection- Absorbs and cushions impact and distributes energy horizontally throughout the protective foam pads, reducing effects on the body
- Abrasion Defense- Provides a layer of protection for your skin (including rehabbing wounds and healing cuts and scrapes), whether it's against turf, dirt, rock, or your opponent
- Comfort- Stays put, breathes like skin, allows your joints to articulate fully for freedom of motion, and is virtually weightless
- Customizable- Cuts down to your desired size and shape, peels off the backing and sticks immediately to any vulnerable area of the body. (Clean the area with alcohol and/or shave the area first to keep Defender Skin on for a longer period of time.)
- Durable- 4-way stretch adhesive is sweat and water resistant, staying in place during activity and peeling off easily afterward
- Innovative Design and Construction- Outperforms traditional pads, wraps and tapes, eliminating their tendency to be rough and bulky, and inhibit movement
- Total Body Coverage- Protect knees, elbows, forearms, hands, or any areas subject to abrasion and impact
- All-Sport Usage- Team sports, outdoor sports, fitness, action sports
- Color - Available in Black only. More colors will be available in the future
- For best results, apply to clean, dry skin and 45-minutes prior to activity
- Cut Defender Skin with scissors to desired size and shape
- Peel and apply directly to skin. Avoid lifting and re-applying
- Place pressure on padded areas and corners
- Defender Skin is designed for one-time use only

- How forgiving is this product on body hair? I'm considering using this product to protect my knees from turf burn when playing lacrosse because knee sleeves can be uncomfortable or require adjustment during play. However, the skin around my knees is very hairy, and I don't want to have weird hairless patches around my knees if the adhesive rips out my leg hair or I have to shave the area that I'll be applying the product to.
- The Defender Skin is recommended for use on clean, dry, shaved skin. If an area is excessively hairy the Defender Skin may not adhere as well as desired.
