I just purchased a set of Riddell EVX 18Y youth pads.....A little nervous about sizing according to other reviews, but if you follow the size chart and measure correctly, they fit great. Don't be fooled by the weight scale, my 8 year old is 87 pounds and tall......he wears an extra small according to the measurements given on the web site......Perfect fit! They are very comfortable and my son has excellent range of motion with them on, unlike the pads given out by local teams. This set of shoulder pads also has an elongated back pad for extra protection for those kids that run and throw the ball. We can't wait for the season to start.
