under shirt with built in pads??

Is there an under armour style shirt that has padding built into it? I play in a non contact league and do not wear shoulder pads but a little padding might not be the worst thing.

sweet thanks. I also noticed the RBK one, do you guys know which is a looser fitting shirt between the 2? I am not sure if I want a really tight compression fit like the under armor, I have an Itech shirt now with the neck guard and it is perfect.

I wear the Farrell stuff under my hockey pants, yeah you want the shirt but I wear the 5 pad compression short.

I swear by it .... they make the compression shirt with padding in it. I am buying Farrell shoulder pads used by the pros next week too.

You can remove the armor and just wear the vest for recreational use. The armor plates are detachable, great idea and a great product.

The shirt ...

The shoulder pads .... some people have complained about the white getup getting discolored but they offer black as well ...

The compression short ... they have two kinds, ones with the velcro thigh thing to hold up your socks and the ones without. I own these and use these shorts everytime I play and swear by them.

Honestly... just wear your shoulder pads. THere's nothing quite as annoying as having to deal with somebody who doesn't take his or her shoulder pads on the ice. You always have to play softer against him or her.

I play in a "non-contact" league that encourages a little bumping here and there... as a defenceman it drives me nuts because sometimes I just have to let the jerk not wearing his pads by me (when the only option left is a little bump out of position, or a rub-out along the boards). I find those shifty stickhandlers love to do that, and it really just annoys the heck out of everybody.

That's weird. I've seen that girl players in my non-contact league draw more penalties than usual, I've seen penalties doled out according to "reputation" but I'd never expect to see one guy go to the box because he collided with somebody wearing less equipment than the other.

And I done saw just about everything when I seen an elephant fly.

I wear minimal shoulder stuff. It is a preference .... Shanahan in the NHL still uses his highschool shoulder pads which are rags and just two cups on the shoulder.

I'm buying the Farrell shouldies and will wear the full thing since they feel like you are not wearing anything. My TPS shoulder pads are huge and honestly complete overkill for the league I play in these days. they did the job years ago buit now i just need just enough protection that is mainly comfortable.
