George Kittle, like many other NFL players, wears the Xtech X2 shoulder pads. The two main reasons these shoulder pads are so popular is because they’re super low-profile and offer plenty of range of motion. Players like Kittle need to be able to reach both arms up and make tough grabs over the middle so it’s important that they have a pair of shoulder pads that allow that. Xtech shoulder pads are also super customizable so players are able to get a fit that’s custom to them. They’re simply the best in the business so it’s no surprise Kittle wears them year in and year out.
You can shop all of Xtech’s shoulder pad options at xtechpads.com for $499.
