Relatively light weight while providing ample protection compared to say the X40 and not nearly as bulky. Great for a smaller player. You can just squeeze the sides together and reduce he volume. Didn't work on the Vapors. Sometimes the "best" isn't the best for everyone!! Love the broad back strap that provides enhanced protection.
I bought these shin guards and I don't regret it! They are protective, cool looking, and comfy. The only problem is that they are a little heavy and expensive just like most hockey products. Try them, they're great!
