Not too heavy and perfect pad.
I have purchased this item for my grandson and he loves this! He wears this for varsity and select basketball and it is perfect. Not too heavy but protects his thighs, hips and tailbone. He is a very defensive player and spends a lot of time under the basket and in physical situations where he sometimes ends up on the ground. He said the best part was the protection of his thighs where he gets "frogged" a lot and this has eliminated the painful bruises.
