Comments: I've ordered these shoulder pads and used on the ice right after the delivery. Some of the protective equipments require you some break in time, but these pads don't need one.
-Fit and Customization.
To start with, It was very comfortable wearing right off the box. It's not too tight to body or too loose. I found out that there was velcro attached not only at the kidney area, but also on the second panel of the front part of this shoulder pad. This allowed me to make the pads tighter to my body and whenever I felt like playing with looser fit, than I strapped it to the velcro on the kidney area. This might be a minor thing to some people, but for me, customization in such a small area is important, and I'm pretty sure that nobody will hate the product for extra customization.
I've blocked some shots that was heading towards my upper body area, and received some hits during the game. You know what, shoulder pads did it's job very, very well. Not only the front part was very solid, but the kidney area is very well protected by vent armour foam, which Bauer is putting on their every single Supreme products, and some others. These vent armours are very protective, and I personally love the material. I don't know if the vents on it reduce weights but, these pads are also light, when you consider the protection that this pad offers.
-Range of motion.
So the Bauer Supreme totalone nxg protective line was first anounced with the term "Anatomical Fit." To be honest, I am a foreigner, and I didn't notice what it meant at the first time I heard the term. But anyways, I don't know if that anatomical fit helped it or not, I definately felt very natural when moving, or maybe comfortable moving. That means' there were no restriction towards your movement what so ever. I was not impressed at the first glance when I looked at the product. Don't get me wrong, the design was sick. But some of the pads that offers great design, sometimes lacks on the free range of motion, and I never felt any restriction, whether I was taking a wrist, snap, slapshots, and skating.
I know this review was very long. But I was very impressed with this product and I really wanted to express my feelings to those people who are hesitating to buy this product because it looks heavy, bulky, restrictive, or pricey. Believe me, the pad worth every single penny out of $149.99.
