The shoulder pads designed for youth football are engineered to withstand the rigors if playing youth football. They are not properly designed for or properly sized for an adult. It an adult were to use youth sized pads they stand a greater risk of injury.

Local parks departments often sponsor adult football activities.

Douglas most likely makes the best youth shoulder pads but they are heavy and extremely expensive. I am an ex pro football player and I used Riddell "Power" pads in college and the pros. When I researched looking for a youth comparison I found the Riddell EVX which to me looks and feels similar to my old "powers." My son loves his. So for the money pick Riddell EVX but if you are rich go with Douglas.
