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.
With many of the newer pads, most people do not have complaints about mobility.
