Today, thigh pads in football are made out of plastic. They used to be made out of quilted materials dating back to the 1890's.

Hockey pads have been an important part of safety at all levels of the game, even for those who play just for fun. The first time a player donned pads was in the 1880s.

Plastic & foam If you're talking name brand pads then the Power/Riddell pads are probably the most widely used shoulder pads in College and Professional football. Riddell and Schutt are the most used helmet brands though a small number of other companies are being used right now but with very little success and usage. Companies like Adams and Xenith would be the helmets that come to mind.
