Price is right and cheaper than local sports stores with shipping.

Does what it should do as far as pads go. price is right. My kids used these playing WR/TE/and RB If your kids are in football though and playing these positions... I would highly recommend and even perhaps insist that one purchase the additional back plate available for around 15 bucks...and/or the rib protector kit. it protects your kids back from injury from "cheap illegal shots in the back with the (NOT INCLUDED) back plate. We found this out the hard way. But get the back plate it will save you headaches and tears and agony from your kid having to nurse a bruised back and possibly miss games sitting on the sideline. Two kids missed the season on our team from week 2 because they did not have the extra back plate protector and got clipped in their backs. One kid suffered a ruptured disk and was going to have to have surgery. so get the back plate and you wont be sorry you did when your kid comes up and thanks you.... (laughing) that he was properly protected and that "big hit" really didn't hurt so bad. I modified one rib protector for my 14 year old because he was so tall the small back plate(remember this is not included in the pad package you have to buy it extra)did not give him proper coverage over his back... so we drilled out a spot on the rib-cage protector and it worked fine for C.Y.A. <=cover your a@@! See a video review and fit on kids on youtube under schmeggmann...since Azon is such a pain in the A to upload videos to this is easier to do it this way.
