Football Back Plates
|Your football helmet, shoulder
pads, girdle, arm pads, and leg pads keep you pretty safe when you're
putting your body on the line for the team. But let's be honest, there's
still a lot of your body exposed and in danger of serious injury when
you get hit. Take every precaution and put your body first, without
giving up performance, when you strap in a tough back plate.
Easily attachable to most shoulder pads, football back plates protect your lower back, kidneys and spine from injury by reducing the impact from hits from behind. Designed for younger players, teens, and adults, back plates are lightweight, easily removable, and not too bulky. You may never even realize its there, until you take a hit.
