This shirt does not stretch, due to the padded areas being rigid and stitched in, but for slim kids, it provided just the right protection for teaching shotgun, and made all the difference in making ear to ear smiles instead of stifled tears of pain.

These run small! They're too stretchy to be called "compression," yet the XL is too tight to be labeled as such and the XXL has the pads placed a little off for the XL wearer. C'est la vie. Overall quality seems excellent. I am not a football or rugby player; I got this to wear under my motorcycle riding suit as additional padding. Best feature: the upper pads seem to cover the collarbones fairly well. Worst feature: the rib padding coverage could use a rethink, but is much better than nothing.
