So far its a good product and really beefy. My son moved in to the MLB position this year and his old pads just were not helping blunt all the blows he was taking being there, so we were looking for a little more protection, and these pads seem to be doing the job. Just dont expect to be a wide receiver in these pads because they are kind of bulky.

Excellent Service!

When we decide to order something there is nothing better than next day delivery without paying for next day air. Son plays jr high football, fullback, linebacker and qb, loves the pads, much nicer than the school offers. Thanks.

A huge upgrade from the shoulder pads issued by our league. My son plays center and these pads are protective yet allow great flexibilty and movement. Double straps are nice too.

I really like these shoulder pads because when you hit you can't even feel the impact and they feel are also comfortable to wear, I strongly recommend them.

MUCH better than the pads my son was issued by the league. My son loves these. Size can be tricky...my experience was the pads ran smaller than advertised. We sent the first pair back - no issues. Great company to do business with.

EVX45y Pads Small
August 12, 2012
No opinion yet on the effectiveness of the shoulder pads, but they do seem to be high quality and extremely protective. My comment has to do with the style/fit. I bought these for my 9 year old as he fit the size chart description. Unfortunately, he couldn't even lift his arms up over his head. They pads looked much larger and had more padding than previous pads. Maybe we will try again next year to see if things work better. Just wanted to share....perhaps trying these on in person first would be the way to go if you're not familiar with them.

Perfect Youth to Adult Transition pads

Good Quality Youth Pad that in the larger size is a better fit than moving to a larger Adult Small. My son loves the comfort and general fit. Light weight with excellent padding. Go for it!

Bought these for my son who is 11. The pads fit great and they're a great value for the money - this is the same pad as the adult version for twice the money!

'Hitter" Good name for these pads. Third time was the charm, my grandson doesn't even wear his padded underarmour with them.

Good Pads
August 20, 2011
These are good quality and offer more shock absorption than cheaper pads. One thing buyers should know: the vinyl straps should NOT be secured tightly (I ended up cutting them off). If they are too tight, and because they do not stretch, your player will not be able to breathe properly. The elastic straps are more than enough to secure the pads, so I'm not sure why the vinyl strap/buckle is designed in. I do recommend these if you have an aggressive player. My son has not had a stinger since we got these.

Excellent Shoulder Pad
August 15, 2011
Got these for our hard hitting 10 year old lineman son. Most youth shoulder pads are so flimsy that they don't offer the big kids (130+lbs) much protection. These pads are different. Excellent fit and excellent protection all around. Love the extra chest belt to hold the pads in place.

Riddell Hitter
August 14, 2011
My son is 11 and playing his last year of travel football before he starts playing for the middle school. He is a linebacker/tight end. These shoulder pads are a little larger than those the league provided, but have a lot more padding under the chest and delts, but they do not restrict movement. After his scrimmage last night he said he didn't event feel it when he hit kids flush. Great belted closure system. I will buy more of these as he grows.
