If you are a player looking for the best bang for your buck, Warrior's Dynasty HD3 focuses on a superior level of protection, comfortable fit and very important odor management properties; these no-nonsense pads are all substance, and will provide the necessary protection you need to play your game.
The most important factor in choosing a shoulder pad is no doubt going to be the fit, as it is with all pieces of equipment. Warrior has designed their Dynasty series to be a more anatomical or "tailored" fit to your body, they call this Axy-Sym fit. This was used in their previous Dynasty models and promotes great mobility without sacrificing protection. Besides using lightweight foams, a unique strapping system called 2-Timer features heavy duty velcro straps that are adjustable from the front and back sides to give you the most desirable fit.
With the protection aspect of the pad it all starts with the caps. The HD3's feature a multi-layered design including a comfort liner and a molded plastic cap all topped with a layer of mid density foam. The sternum guard is composed of mid density foam and is "floating" to help increase your mobility and dexterity while still protecting incredibly important vitals in the body. Mid density foams can be found throughout this pad, including the spine guard and kidney guards. The bicep guards are also made with mid density foams and large plastic reinforcements and are height adjustable. Meanwhile, the entire performance jacket (the base of the shoulder pad) is made of very lightweight single density foam.
To wrap it all up, the HD3 is lined in Warrior's signature yellow liner called Wartech FnC. This liner keeps you dry and cool by promoting quick evaporation of sweat. Lastly, Warrior treats their liner with Polygiene. This is a process that inhibits the growth of odor causing bacteria in fabric, using this effective and permanent treatment creates an odor free effect that lasts the lifetime of your equipment. Plenty of us could benefit from gear that doesn't stink! We are sure you, your parents, and your girlfriend would really appreciate this feature!
