In total, how much does all the protective gear in american football weigh?
My guess is between 5 and 10 pounds. Most of the weight is from the shoulder pads and helmet. There is also additional weight from the hip and rib pads which I wore when I played high school football 50 years ago. I think the equipment is a little lighter today.
I currently play American Football in England for both a local team and my University.The helmet is around 4-5 pounds and shoulder pads around 5-7 pounds. The lower pads weigh hardly anything, like a pound or two and that is it. The equipment is really not that heavy on its just a case of getting used to it.
