Have you considered the Bauer One40 shoulder pads? I had a pretty tight budget when I bought my gear in january, and Hockey Monkey had them for cheaper than the Warriors. I had really wanted those same shoulder pads, but after trying then on, I went with the Bauers because they were lighter and less bulky (it didn't hurt that they were less expensive), and I haven't felt like I'm lacking in protection.
On the shoulder pads, I will look a them again, but I have a broad chest, I chose the Warrior's because of the size fitting with my chest better. (at least just by looking at the sizing chart)
I haven't bought anything yet, but have just been building a cart.
You've got to choose it to lose it, so let me plug it in. Robots are my next of kin.
