I just spit those out because that's what I use personally and what I have experience with. But there are a lot of similar pads out by the various hockey companies that offer a little bit more in terms of protection while giving you that range of motion.
In my experience people get all too consumed with how good the protection is they don't realize they sacrificed a lot of comfort and a lot of times it could restrict the way you move because of that. You want the shoulder pad to conform to you not the other way around and I feel that gets lost a lot of the time.
