The Easton Mako shin pads are the first new pads that I have bought since the 90's. I always thought my old Jofa's were great, till I blocked a shot with the side of my knee. After that I acquired a pair of Warrior hustler pads and they were ok but they just did not fit right. From the first time I put the Easton's on in Total Hockey they felt great and comfortable, they are light weight with out loose any protection. I Love the way Easton is going with their equipment. As for the use on the ice the Mako's are light and the fit under the Reebok edge socks is tight fitting and slim. You can go out and play to your fullest without any thoughts about the Mako's not holding up or movement. Overall I am
extremely pleased with the Easton Mako shin pads.
