Excellent shoulder pads
I actually bought these shoulder pads for work. I do construction work and hardscapes. So I carry a lot of lumber, railroad ties, 6x6 timbers, etc. On my shoulders. Carrying 250 pound railroad ties on my shoulder isn't so bad, but when I have to carry 50 or so from the front yard to the back because there is no access for a skid steer tractor, it can get kinda painful. I'm just starting a new job to replace 104 railroad ties with 110 6x6x8 timbers. Lots of shoulder work involved.
These shoulder pads were delivered promptly and packaged very well. I use the XXL size.
I put them on and got them buckled up to fit me very easily. Grabbed the first 125 pound timber off the truck, placed it up on the shoulder pad and headed for the back yard. About 200 feet downhill.
I instantly felt the difference of wearing the shoulder pads. It distributes the weight over the entire shoulder and prevents it from biting in. Made the timber feel half the weight. Oh what a relief it is.
I will check back after I finish this job. I know this isn't what these shoulder pads are meant for but this will be a torture test for them. If they can handle this job then they should be excellent as football shoulder pads.
