All of the tags just say "Joe Rocket", there is no model name or number. Yes, it has a pad on the back. I should clarify that the elbows and shoulders are padded also, not hard plastic.
As for shipping, I will have to send you another message. We do not have it in a box yet. Since we live in California (93405), the shipping should not be too bad.
I will send you a quote tomorrow.
