My son loves this shirt and said it was very comfortable which is great because he is fickle some some of the stuff out there.
My son is a 9 year old keeper. During winter months he tends to wear GK padded pants and cold or hot gear tops under his jersey. In summer that is just too hot. The padding on the short sleeve compression shirt is positioned well to help him feel protected and confident to dive and get into traffic. Lightweight, and not itchy as the first layer under his jersey. We have the matching long sleeve top and shorts too. We will be getting pants once the weather starts to cool again.
Bought this for my son for keeper camp this summer.. he loved it said it was perfect and had good protection.
Our son is 13 and is a GK at Eastside FC and can’t wait to be off break to wear it. He likes the padding on the shoulders and the sides for less bumps and bruises!
This shirt works well as a base layer. It's snug without being restricting, and is long enough to not come untucked. The padding, while not extensive, does provide some protection.
