I bought a pair of the armadillo's last year in Marchish. Practices every weekend, 8 events later and there is maybe a stitch coming out on the side hip pad. The zipper pull car off at some point towards the en of the season.
I play snake corner short and sorta stocky. When I land, I land HARD! No tears. I wanted to get my previous team outfitted with them.
I give the armadillos a diesel rating. Only complaints were swab pocket on back of thigh not quite deep enough, and only one front pocket.
