For players looking for a combination of protection and flexibility, the perfect choice can be found in the Warrior Evo Hitlyte Shoulder Pads.

This piece of equipment combines extremely protective material with an ingenious array of padding placement. Together, the pads are able to create a system capable of flexing and moving with your body, allowing you to be comfortable.

On top of that the Two-Timer strap system utilized by the pads gives an easily adjustable and consistently secure grasp to your body.

Any lacrosse athlete can understand the various ways our bodies contort and move while performing. One of the more annoying drawbacks of our padding can be the feeling of a restricted range of motion.

If you're not comfortable in your gear, you're not going to be competing as well as you can, it's as simple as that. However, this issue was addressed and solved completely with the Warrior Evo Hitlyte Shoulder Pads.

Padding

The main point of protective gear is of course to protect you, and you definitely get that with these pads.

The Evo Hitlytes use the new D30 aero impact foam in the chest and shoulder areas. This particular type of foam was developed to be lightweight, soft, and flexible.

However it was also developed to give supreme protection with its adaptive intelligent shock absorption. Essentially the more force applied to it, the greater the resistance.

The padding is spread out in all the typical areas of the upper torso, with the main focus areas being the sternum, rib cage and collar bone.

Shoulder caps

The shoulder cap areas of these pads have been designed for a low profile type of feel, and thus have been somewhat molded in with the collarbone area.

This design choice is very popular in players who are more concerned with mobility in the shoulder area. So if you are looking for that extra bit of range of motion, you're going to definitely find it here.

However while you are getting that extra bit of motion in the shoulder area, there's little need to be concerned about being protected there. The collar bone padding combined with the upper arm sections will offer a very fair amount of protection, especially given the highly functional foam padding used inside these areas.

Chest/sternum/back protection

If you simply look at the chest area of these pads, it's easy to understand what they're purposed for. The chest, sternum, and back areas take use of the new Cage FLX bib system, and as such you'll be getting a lightweight durable pad, that's able to contort just as you do.

Upper arm protection

With a lot of upper arm pads on shoulder pads, you'll find that either they do their job and work, or are just too lacking in one or more areas.

The main purpose of this section of padding is to block from slashes to the upper arm, and if it is able to do this while staying in place and being comfortable, then it's a great pad.

The Evo Hitlyte definitely works in this area, the piece is paneled so that it can wrap around any arm easily, and the straps are fully adjustable to your liking.

Comfort

When you're talking about comfort, the Evo Hitlyte is simply unrivaled. In every aspect of design, these pads were made to be super comfortable while playing.

These pads go above and beyond just not being bulky and cumbersome; they address every issue related to how the pads will feel when worn. Issues from flexibility, to unwanted shifting, and even restricted movement are all solved with this set of shoulder pads.

Summary

The Warrior Evo Hitlyte Shoulder Pads are a premium piece of equipment, and will undoubtedly give you an edge on the field. These pads hold a lot of consideration in their design, every aspect and detail serves a purpose.

With the main focus being comfortable protection, they've integrated new technology and methods in the making of this piece of equipment, which has resulted in a new standard for comfortable gear.

These pads come with a 30 day warranty from the original date of purchase.
