i have a particularly sensitive area i have to protect from my elbow up my arm to my shoulder from falls and crashes. On regular trails i havent felt any need to wear any protection but on the narlyness we hit today, i feel it is necessary. However i havent been able to find any pads or protection that protect that part of the arm. The only thing i have found is pads that protect for the forearm. Does anyone have any suggestions?

I wear hockey referee elbow pads. they are lighter than the players pads and they extend about 4 inches past the elbow. I took a fall and landed on my forearm and shoulder. That's when I took out the pads. They are not too hot and give me a little more confidence. You might also check some football specialty catalogs too.

4 inches would be perfect

Here's the link where I got mine last year. Too bad I cant wear my pants. I could use the hip protection.;) PADS
