Rated 5 out of 5 by Rhonda07 Worth the money My son plays fullback and this has helped protect his ribs and back! Love the way it's constructed and fits! My son likes better than the padded shirt! Well worth the money for peace of mind! October 10, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by DaniD1 Works well Works well for protecting my son during 6th grade tackle. October 6, 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by bjohns7778 Decent, lightweight protection, but needs more adjustability to work properly. Several kids on the team I coach have these. We have tried multiple sizes on several kids and all of them have the same problem. The vest portion that goes over the shoulders is too large and is not adjustable. The pads sit lower than they should on every kid and often overlap hip pads and do not fully protect ribs. The best solution we have found is to have someone take up about 3/4"-1" of the vest material on both the front and back to get the padding higher where it should be. If you are not willing to do this I would look for another product. Once this modification is done I am quite happy with them. August 17, 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by txmom Great protection for lower back. My son wanted a back protector because that's where he seemed to always get hit in football games. He said it's comfortable and he is not as sore after taking hits in games. So if he says it's working for him then it was a great purchase. October 24, 2014
Rated 4 out of 5 by Papabear676 youth hard shell rib vest review I am very pleased with my purchase. My son is quite a bit smaller then most of his team mates. The Schutts youth hard shell rib vest really give him the extra protection that he needs to help him on the field. It is comfortable and lightweight. He was so excited the day it arrived. And has been loving it ever since. March 10, 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Best Grandma Good Product but... I have no complaints about the rib protector but it was shipped to me with the security device still attached. Luckily, there is a Dick's store in Mooresville, so with receipt and ID in hand, I had them remove it. Totally inconvenient at the time. September 18, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by B Rib Guard I love this product... wish they came in a youth extra small though. Small was just a little too big. August 25, 2013
Rated 5 out of 5 by katkeenmama First time football player My only complaint is that the strap comes undone during practice. Much better than similar products! August 22, 2013
Rated 4 out of 5 by Youth Football Coach Great piece of sports equipment My son is a youth football player, and he was tired of getting hit in his back, and rib areas. So we tried the Schutt Youth Hard Shell Rib Vest, and it did the job. He said it was comfortable, and he didn't complain of anymore pain. Overall, great investment at a good price. November 14, 2012
Rated 5 out of 5 by FuturePanther WONDERFUL PRODUCT My child uses this for football practice and he says that the falls are much easier given his extra padding. October 22, 2012
