POWLAX Best Lacrosse Shoulder Pads in 2022
In 2022, NOCSAE created a new standard for shoulder pads called ND200. It requires that all shoulder pads include a chest cap to protect the heart from commotio cordis. These chess caps can be quite large and cumbersome, so we’d like to find a shoulder pad that fits the requirement, doesn’t have too large of a chest plate, and matches our protection preference.
One of the only youth shoulder pads I could find that is ND200 certified.
Great protection for the speed of play.
Bicep pads can be removed.
Some online reviews claim that previous years models have been sent that do not have the ND200 NOCSAE patch (it’s on the back). If you receive one of these models, make sure to send it back for a current version.
