Things I Liked:
great protection, especially poron, really flexible
Things to Improve:
more poron, the poron padding is incredibly protective.
At $50, these shoulder pads arena incredible deal.
The Dakota shoulder pads are just as protective as STX Cell2, but they're more flexible and the shoulder pads don't get in the way as much as the Cell2 shoulder pads. The poron areas, which are the Y pad in middle of chest and the middle set of pads on the shoulder pads, are extremely awesome protection. Dakota shoulder pads are more protective for poke checks than Brine LoPro SPs and only slightly less flexible. Brine LoPros pads are shaped like waffles so they're flexible but poke checks find the creases where there's no protection. In contrast, the Dakota shoulder pads have diagonal creases for flexibility so poke checks don't line up along the creases where there's no protection.
Brine LoPro SP caps are hard plastic and less flexible than Dakota shoulder caps, which is made of flexible padding (including poron padding), that offers almost as much protection as hard plastic but with a lot more flexibility that doesn't interfere with your shot. Brine LoPro Mid Pads, which don't have a hard plastic shoulder cap, are a little bit more flexible than Gait Dakota SPs, but have much less shoulder protection.
In short, a fantastic combo of protection, flexibility, comfort. These SPs are high quality, offer great protection and durability of single piece construction, yet still provide flexibility and comfort with multiple diagonal creases which don't compromise protection for comfort.
Gait Dakota SPs look great, protect great, fit great, comfortable, flexible, do not overheat so you stay cool. IMO, these SPs are as good as any SPs out there. I love these pads. You will not regret this purchase.
