Comments: Always stuck with Easton shoulder pads- but moving up from my basic pair I wanted something that was highly protective, breathable, and provided great mobility in its movement. After going back and forth between brands I was able to narrow it down to the Easton Stealth 85s vs the RBK 11k shoulder pads. In the end- Easton won. Easton won for very reasons- mainly because i felt it offered more protection and more of a snug fit, more of a shoulder pad that became a part of you. The RBK was a great fit as well and actually provided more movement in its mobility- however I felt the 85s offered more protection at that sacrifice for slightly less mobility. After wearing the 85s for a few weeks I can say with confidence that these shoulder pads are an amazing price for the quality you get. While my prior statement about its mobility vs the RBK may change your mind- trust me when I say these shoulder pads become a part of you and its so hard to realize you are wearing them. They feel thicker and have difference placements on some slight areas around the chest and collar bones in comparison to the RBK, however for me the bigger area coverage from the 85s was worth the risk and to top it off, there is no change in performance from my point of view. the 85s is a very breathable protective shoulder pad which is form fitting enough to feel natural and not too bulky when it comes to managing your view or feel in turns or when you battle on the boards The straps are snug and offer a good amount of mobility and the design makes it feel so protective I jump in to block shots without a single worry (besides it hitting my cup) In the end I would happily give these shoulder pads a solid 8.5/9 out of 10.
