Weakness:

Bulky

For the elbows, I haven't found anything I liked better. They're bulky, but I wear them over jerseys and warmers. They don't really leave anything to want. I happened to be between sizes and went for the larger size and can only complain about the long velcro straps, but can fit it easier over winter layers. They come pretty close to the wrist that they'd interfere with wrist watches, wrist braces, and lift pass bracelets.

For the Knee/Shins, it's hit or miss, depending on fit. I like my Kyle Straits a lot better, but they don't offer as much protection and require shoe take off to put on (if you want them to last). Would be more of the type you carry to the top on your pack, then put on for the descent, rather than the type you can wear full time like soft pads. I am the type that goes full time with pads, so I can't really recommend the knee/shins.

5/5 for value and overall for the Elbow pads.
