I like the Bauer's. I stopped wearing shoulder pads during the last beer league seasons and noticed no difference in my play other than more freedom. I am also going to be playing D this next season and am looking to go back to shoulder pads and don't want anything too bulky.

The two I have for use aren't bad and I will probably be taking the knife to a certain pair just to give me chest and shoulder protection.
