Great product, very well made. I purchased 4, one was a little warped/bent from shipping but it straitened out after a few uses. Comfortable to take a punch, the material might as well be a memory foam mattress on your stomach. This works great for stand up drills that include body shots also good in combination with pads. If you are doing ground work, this is good for punches or if you are kneeling on the body for submission moves it really eases the comfort of having someone kneeling right on your stomach.
The only con I saw was the belt loop size. I am a 36" and I wear the smallest setting and it is comfortable and snug where it does not move much when I get punched. One of my sparring partners is a 34" waist, this I notice slip a little bit but it still works well just a little irritating for him to adjust after I punch him for a little bit. Anyone below a 34" waist with this should have something to stuff behind the belt band to keep it tight, it just doesnt seem to be made for small fighters which I believe may be due to the size of the target area that is covered. You may find this problem with every pad you buy.
In short, this is well crafted and very protective aside from one flaw for the middleweights and below.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
