If I had tried these on at the store I wouldn't have purchased them, they are extremely uncomfortable. There is a rubber like donut for your elbow that feels great, but the hard pad that your elbow hits underneath the donut hurts. The bicep is mounted in 2 places so you lose the mobility most other high end elbows give, and the u foam that is so visibly apparent in the shoulder pads is surprisingly absent from the elbows. Instead there is a rough gray fabric everywhere. I asked my daughter to slash me on the arm a couple of times and if it hurts when she hits me i cant imagine its gonna feel good when a 200 lb defender decides to chop me down! I love the shoulder pads, I thought I would love the elbow pads...I think there are better ways to spend 100 bucks.
