Strengths:    Very nice looking,light.

Weaknesses:    Extremely thin pads, not for DH or FR use,Dont count them for protection.

Bottom Line:   
I bought them for protection and one week after in a small fall they got pierced and my hand also. Buy them but its better to hang the on the wall than to use them. I was very disapointed
