The Warrior Burn Hitman shoulder pads weigh in as on of the lightest advanced midde and defensive pads on the market. The big story here is the 2 piece, low profile shoulder cap folds into itself to give a serious range of motion. Once you slip these pads on you will barely notice them after you start playing. Most guys detach the upper arm pad section which leaves them with a minimalist pads that actually deflects blows off the shoulder really well. The advanced collegiate and high school guys love this pad.
