So I made some leather pauldrons (well, spaulders to be exact), three pieces with straps for articulation and strapped across the chest above and around the arm below. But trying them out on the field, I noticed I suddenly had this hard surface right next to my neck which also sticks a bit outside my shoulders. While it looks pretty nice (pictures to come), I find myself concerned that a hard hit from the side, somebody crashing into me, or falling on that should would push the pauldrons into my neck in a harmful manner. What have y'all done to prevent this problem, if indeed it is a problem? A shorter top piece so it doesn't stick out so far? A gorget? A turned-up edge next to the neck? Other things?

I'm having some trouble visualizing it. Do you have pics posted somewhere?
