Schutt Varsity Back Plate - Men's Designed to provide player with additional back protection, the Schutt Varsity Back Plate fits all models of Schutt Varsity Shoulder Pads. Features an Energy Block Transfer System so that when a player is hit, the vented blocks disperse the force over a wider area. This causes much less force to actually be felt by the player. Raised corrugation gives this plate extra strength. 5mm vent holes help circulate air.
