Strength:

Relatively cool as long as you're moving. Reasonable protection (assumed). Havn't yet hucked and tested these pads yet...it's amazing how much better you ride when you are confident you are PREPARED for a huck...

Weakness:

Can be hot, slightly restrictive, especially at the upper arm when you're jacked-sauce like me.

Like the pads. Excellent for all mountain riding in moderate temps. Should have plenty of protection, good price.

Strength:

Light, comfortable, cool, good protection

Weakness:

not meant for bashing your elbows/forearms against boulders

These pads slip on easily and stay put with only two straps. Very quick to gear up, and down. The protection is minimal, and is best suited to avoid abrasion and injuries from minor impacts. It's thin flexible plastic, not meant for smashing into rocks. I don't do a lot of that, and if/when I crash it is usually just into soft trees or skidding along dirt; these protect just fine against those types of accidents. I would recommend them as a good set of all purpose pads, or something to wear on a less intense day.

The 2X4 forearm is comfortable and reliable.The stiffness feeling goes away when you are riding.
I encourage everyone to buy these pads.

Road Warrior comments from XC riding buddies

I'm no downhill or freeride type but after my latest digger, decided to get some pads as I can't show up at the office with huge gouges in my arms. These are light and cheap for the protection they provide. I store them in my camelbak until I need them but once they're on, you hardly notice them. The mesh does breathe pretty well but will wait until summer to comment on how hot they get.
Value rating is for the sale price.

Strength:

Coverage and great flexibility

Weakness:

None

These ar the greatest pads I have had so far. As you can see I have had them for a while and still they work great. They are the only pad I have found that has no open areas to get hit yet are still totally flexible. Mine (the earlier versions) took a little while to break in but now the new ones seem flexier from the get go. And the open mesh top is makes these not really hot at all especially compared to other brands and they are alot cooler than the leg version.

Strength:

Durable, comfortable, light, rugged yet flexible + look sweet

Weakness:

could have heavier plastic inserts for more protection

These pads are really conmfortable, fit well and are nice and light, they take a little getting used to but are brilliant protection for daily freeride, they really take a beating. The wrap around system can be hot in the summer but it ensures they dont move around and are gonna protect you in a crash. Overall - Great price, top quality product!!

Strength:

Light,tough,don't slip

Weakness:

a little hot if you're having to ride up some hills,can cut off your circulation if you get the straps too tight,doesn't take all the shock out of the fall,still kind of hurts if you tumble

I love these.I'm usin'them as replacements for my old 661 races,thoes slipped all the time,no matter what size you bought.I've only fallen twice on these,but so far i'm left with just a dull pain,and not cuts and scrapes.These never slip,I love em'.They do take a few rides to break in,but after that they're comfortable.I've fallen up at Northstar with them and the first thing that hit was my arm,all it did was get them dirty and leave me with a dull pain.I'm soon gonna get a upper body suit,but these are fine for now.If you want a relible,cheap arm guard,get these.They're your best bet.

Strength:

breakes in very quick. comfortable fit and not to hot on warm days. good looks. seems to be durable so far.

Weakness:

only has single stitching needs double stitching, the velcro from your glove strap will fray the cuff of the 2x4s if they come in contact.

overall these are great pads, not the most protection you can get. but for the price,,comfort,and great looks you cant beat them.

Strength:

easy to put on and comfy. they work good. not as annoying as hard shell elbow pads. they stay in place pretty good.

Weakness:

the mesh on the non-pad side is a little weak.
(took a digger off a 9 footer and the mesh ripped a little)

they are definitely worth the $$
you don't notice them until your arms are in the dirt and then you're glad you have em.
buy them if you can.
