Lightweight pads for hard-hitting running backs
October 16, 2011
My son is a high school running back and needed new shoulder pads to replace the early style form-fitting Rawlings Combat pads which he loved but had outgrown. We ordered the new Rawling Combat pads but they were no where near the quality of the earlier pads. We ran across these pads on Sports Unlimited and based on the similar appearance to his old pads, we decided to order. He's been quite happy with the pads. These pads are lightweight and more less contour the shoulders. These pads will not give you that exaggerated wide-shoulder look. My son is a hard-hitting running back and has played 3 games so far with these pads and has not complained of any shoulder pain. Pleased with the purchase.
