Strength:

Decent materials used, Protect much of your leg.

Weakness:

Sizing is ridiculous, these run extremely large. To lump together 4 sizes in 2 seems to me, to be a major over site. (S/M & L/XL)

I bought these Sette Impact's in the L/XL size, as my 661's in a size large were a perfect fit for me (I am 5'11, with a stocky build). Boy was I wrong about the size, these were gynormous in every way. Really really long, but I guess protection all the way to the ankle and beyond could have been a good thing. The velcro straps are about 4" too long as well, and I found the mesh/webbing to be annoying and unnecessary. Traded them in for another pair of 661 Comps in size L, they fit me perfect, and I've never looked back.

Strength:

Protective bits seem solid

Weakness:

Fit is terrible, they come in 2 sizes I bought the smallest one (S/M), and the straps are way too long. I'm 5'11 and have medium sized legs according to other pad manufacturers. All the straps are really stretchy and the pads slip out of position. Luckily they are long enough that they can't slip past my feet. I can double wrap the top strap around my leg, but that is a bit too tight. Also they don't flex much at the knee They are also not comfortable or easy to take on and off besides not having to remove the shoes. I like most of the Sette products I have bought but these suck. If you buy them get the S/M unless you have tree trunk legs.

I'm buying something else

Strength:

good protection

Weakness:

not very comfortable, fit isn't great

These pads straps that are too long for a "medium" fit. They tend to ride down throughout the day, leaving the fit worse. On top of that, the straps behind the knee get uncomfortable after a few hours.

This would be a good product if you are on a serious budget or if you were only gonna wear them for like an hour at a time. Otherwise, there are definitely better products out there.

Strength:

Fit me well, comfortable, vent ok, stay in place, give enough clearance at ankle, cost

Weakness:

none yet, but its an early review

Im strapped for cash so I got these. I figured something is better than nothing when it comes to losing skin. I used these downhilling at the local ski mountain and had a couple spills with them.
While riding I never knew they were on
While crashing they stayed in place and did what they are supposed to- protect my @ss!
They got a little hot while standing still, but vented well when riding down the trails. For the money, a good investment. Now I just have to see how they hold up. Gonna give 4 hot turds for these.

Strength:

protects your knee and shins

Weakness:

the back of knee net mesh strap is loose. the straps could have more velcro so that you can make tighter.

it works, feels comfortable, doesnt slip down, doesnt restrict leg movement. the behind leg strap kinda weak so i might just rip it off. overal i think its good investment to protect my self.
