Great buy.
Extremely cheap, durable and lightweight. I couldn't even tell I had it on 100% of the time. Used it for two seasons of football and only got a small scratch on the plastic parts that attach to the pads. No changes in functionality.
ProsLightweight, durable, cheap, can't even tell it's there.

Does the job and you do not now it is there
This thing works well, does its job, the screws are a bit long (unless i'm doing it wrong) but they will stay and it doesn't seem like they would harm you.
ProsLight weight Protects well

Product Q & A
4 Questions | 5 Answers
Jay from Las Vegas, Nevada asked:
What are the dimensions?
Customer Service: This backplate is 12.5" W x 7" H

juan from NYC asked:
Will this fit on the mid flex pads?
Customer Service: the Schutt Varsity Back Plate should fit on all Schutt shoulder pad models.

sophia mayne from Brooklyn, New York asked:
Will this fit on Schutt Y Flex All Purpose Youth Football Shoulder Pads ?
Customer Service: No. This back plate is for adult shoulder pads. You will want the Schutt Youth Football back plate.

alex: actually yes it would i have the same shoulder pads with the varsity backplate and it fits on perfect

Shane from Sturgeon Bay, WI asked:
Would the hole pattern on this match the hole pattern on the Gear Pro-Tec Z-cool Adult QB/WR shoulder pads I have already purchased?
Customer Service: Yes, the holes will match up fine. You might want to trim some of the excess strap on the backplate to get the right fit, depending on how far down you want the backplate to be. The Schutt Varsity backplate is probably the most universal one we carry.
