Gel filled as stated
Covers part of your palm and backhand
I tried on the Large first but it felt like a small, I couldn't even get it past my forearm. Tried the XL and it fit perfect, there's some room around my wrist and halfway up to my elbow but that's cool since the wrist strap allows you to tighten it.
The padding is AWESOME! ssoooooooooo many bounces it's CRAZY. There were a few moments where I swear they broke on my forearms but there nothing at all.
These are pretty comfortable to wear, I'm prettty sure I can use them to sleep.
Not to mention, they look nice :D
The down side is that elbow pads always make me feel hotter but that's really nothing you can control. I live on and island so I'll never play in snow here :P
The price also sucks, DYE always has expensive stuff but they're usually pretty awesome.
Bottom line, awesome product. It IS expensive but so is the sport of paintball. Reguardless though, I have no regrets at all.
