About Propadz 

Players in Shoulder Pad Protection

Propadz

Propadz is a brand new proprietary padded rugby shirt vest design, developed by former Professional Rugby player Sean O'Brien.

 

Propadz offers a unique modular panel system that allows players to easily place gel pads where needed, replacing the need for daily strapping.

 

Propadz  delivers  convenience and comfort for  players, prevents overheating, and can facilitate hot/cold compression therapy options for injuries and rehabilitation.  


It features a GPS tracker panel with our secure flap design to combine padding and required gameday technology freedoms. The shape of the vest sits comfortably and under any training top.

Tested to be machine washed under 40 degrees. 

GPS Tracker not included.
