These pads have many of the same high tech features as Epochs high school and collegiate Integra padding line, but at a fraction of the cost. Epoch made an absolutely HUGE splash with the introduction of their elite level shaft technology, and now they are following suit with the best value play in lacrosse in this ID padding line.The Epoch ID arm pads offers one of the only 4 way, free floating spandex padding systems in the game. Basically these pads are so comfortable, your kid will forget they are wearing them. These pads are sleek and low profile but offer offensive and defensive protection on both sides of the field.
