I decided to add these Level 2 pads to an order I was making on a bit of a whim. I like the idea of the T.A.C. sweatshirt I got a couple of months ago, but I was not thrilled with the original stiff foam pads that came with it. The elbow pads were fine, but the shoulders were bulky and the back pad was downright uncomfortable. I took the back pad out immediately, and I usually removed the shoulders as well.
I think these Level 2 pads really solve the issues - it’s just frustrating you have to pay extra for them. They are extremely flexible and better molded. Thankfully, I can’t speak to how well they may protect during an impact vs. the original pads, but they are certainly more comfortable. They are not, however, thinner than the originals - just more form-fitting. I do not see the decrease in bulk in the shoulders that’s depicted in the pictures (still look like small football pads). The back pad is still a little uncomfortable, but the flexibility is way better than the original. Ultimately, some bulk is to be expected if you want the protection. I’d easily give these 5 stars from from a design and execution standpoint. I deducted one star because I’m not too happy that I had to pay so much extra for them on top of the T.A.C. Sweatshirt. These pads are really what should have been included with T.A.C. gear from the get-go.
