Review: Well i got these pads after researching knee/shin pads for awhile cause i was tired of tearin' the crap out of my lower extremities. i got them and i have to tell you i thought they looked good and were nice and lite. now i am a 5'9" 215lb guy who is cocked d and my style of play is kind of in the dirt so i guess i put these pads through some rigorous use. these pads are lite as mentioned above and don't hinder movement much, as far as the straps well they are relatively secure, i mean the pads will move on you a little bit when you make a slide but i think thats kind of expected and it didn't bother me too much. after playing with these for about 5 months i made a slide one sunny afternoon and caused a huge tear up the side of one on these pads. now of course i was disappointed in this but when put in perspective i not sure that this should not have been expected, i mean how much abuse can pads take..right. i now have raven knee/shin pads and i tell you what these pads are holding up well and they are a hundred times more comfortable than the flurry pads, although i think a little discomfort while ballin' is necessary so i'm not sure if thats a good thing. all in all i think they are decent pads but not the best i would go with the raven pads over these
Conclusion: All in all i think they are decent pads but not the best i would go with the raven pads over these i give them just a passing grade
