Upgraded to new shins pads- these pads are nice quality for the price.
pro: light, seem durable, and dry quickly.
con: the shins narrow toward the bottom. I'm used to a bulkier pad, so they took some getting used to. I'd say they are good for offense, but a defenseman may want a bigger shin. The bottom strap in a bit annoying, but then again, its new to me so may just be a user preference.
overall: good deal for a decent pad. The back covers the entire calf, which is a nice thing, esp if you've never had it.
