Also came here to recommend Farrel shoulder pads. They are absolutely amazing. They breathe so well and they're so light. They look a bit goofy but they actually offer a lot of protection. I had my brother punch me in the back with the shoulder pads on and other than the push, I really didn't feel any pain. I love these and honestly think they're a bargain for $100~. I know some sites have the older model for like $120 but I bought a pair at a local hockey store for $100 even. Maybe you can try out a local store.

Also try to at least go to a local store to try a pair on, even if you do decide to buy a pair online. The sizes are a bit awkward. A lot of people say that they needed to get a size down from usual. I actually got Large which is what I usually get anyway. Medium was a lot more snug for me but it was just a little too tight for comfort so I went for the looser, large pair.
