I'm using the Gear 2000 QB version of this pads, they are seriously great! No issues whatsoever while throwing, nor catching the ball. Might wanna add some ribs' protection or backplate to it, to avoid getting hurt when you get sacked, lol! Still awesome product! Looking forward to buy it!
Pros:
Excessively comfortable regarding arm motion range.
Cons:
Needs to attach extra ribs protection. A lot of it!

Good pads, light, and protect my son's upper shoulders from side hits. This is his second pair of Z-cools. Both my youth football players wear them.

Son likes the arm pads separate padding. He feel they keep him cooler then other he had. Build very well. Will take a couple more seconds to take off but worth it.

Q.
Jay from Chicago, Illinois asked:
Does these pads interfere with the movement of a helmet?

Q.
ACA from Indiana asked:
I am interested in the Gear Pro-Tech Z-Cool shoulder pads. My son has 17 inch shoulders and a 39 inch chest so he is in between sizes so I am not sure if I should get him the 2xl or 3xl shoulder pads. What would you recommend?
 
A.
Customer Service: When there is a discrepancy between sizes based on measurements, go with the size indicated by the shoulder measurement. It is best so use the measurement for the body part that is meant to be protected by the pads.
