These shin guards are extremely light, and the U foam does stay dryer as advertised. The protection is top notch as well.
That being said, there are some flaws. In both shin guards, within a few months, something inside the knee part came loose and rattles somewhat. It doesn't affect anything, but it's annoying when you buy a top of the line product. My other issue is the the flap at the top of the pad to cover your upper leg. It's way too big, way too inflexible, and cannot be adjusted enough. After a few months I simply cut it down with a pair of scissors to the size that the flaps on most pads are.
I expect some of these issues will be addressed in later product lines, but even so, they are good shin pads, and very light.
