The Schutt Varsity Football Back Plate adds protection to the back to help reduce impact felt from hits from behind. Featuring Schutt's Energy Block Transfer System, the Varsity Back Plate takes the force of the impact from the hit and disperses it over a much wider area than if the player was not wearing the back plate. Consequently, the player feels substantially less force from the hit. The back plate easily attaches to all Schutt varsity shoulder pads and is comfortable without being too bulky. Get the best in protection from Schutt football equipment.
