Football Forearm Pads
You battle opponents, weather and - on some practice days - your own teammates, but one thing you don't want to have to fight is the field. With the increasing amount of turf fields popping up across the country, better equipment is required to keep your arms safe from cuts and abrasions. And there's no better way to do that than with a new forearm pad or sleeve from Sports Unlimited.
Whether you're looking for a simple shiver to get a pro-level look or you need extra padding to protect your arms from hits by linemen and linebackers, we're here to help with a wide selection of padding from top brands like Nike, Under Armour and EvoShield. Forearm pads are great accessories to prevent turf burn and help to keep you feeling fresher deep into games.
Made with high end technologies like Nike's Dri-Fit and Under Armour's HeatGear, most forearm pads are moisture wicking to keep your arms cool and dry throughout the game. Some include padding on the back that is particularly useful to running backs, who are constantly gripping the ball to prevent defenders from knocking it loose. Now, thanks to EvoShield's EvoClutch series, running backs can get a little boost to their ball carrying with a tacky, rubberized patch designed to make holding on to the ball easier.
Players on tighter budgets can get the same protection without as much flash by investing in a forearm guard from Schutt, Wilson, Bike or Martin - all trusted brands with years of experience outfitting football players.
