My son is 7.5 years old, but his head is big for his age. Currently his helmet is Adult Medium and close to Adult Large.
So he has Easton EQ10 shoulder pads size Youth Medium and we like those light weight pads for his home team games, but he needs bigger size such as Junior Small and 2 more reasons: his head is too big so it is not easy and painful to put it on. Second, he plays sometimes with bigger kids and here level of contact is much higher and he had some punches from others sticks etc.
So we are looking to buy Junior Small new shoulder pads. The issue is still head space.
Can you please advise which brands/models would have wider space for his head?
I will order online so want to make sure it fits well...
From brand preference: Warrior is his best choice. Bauer comes next. Reebok, CCM and Easton on third place.
Any particular models/recommendations?
I tried to google this head spacing concern related to shoulder pads and found nothing...
glad it worked out!
Yeah, the mako shoulder pads are unique, and not right for everyone. My son who has a big head, didn't like them at all. Probably because he also has big shoulders and he's broad too
Even though I'm a beginner player, my inner nerd demands I exhaustively research the gear and technology behind it. It's nice when it comes in handy helping someone
