Strengths: These pads look great, their light, well padded with a hard shell, super comfortable all day, don't get hot and stay in position when you need them to! Forget the rest buy these you wont regret it.

The best elbow/forearm pads I have had. The matching Knee/Shin pads are as good too! TLD sizing guide was spot on.
