Thick compression formed padding provides long lasting comfort and protection from bone crushing landings. Four way stretchable upper material keeps your pads on lock down so they stay where they need to be.
The Proto Elbow Pads are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.

I bought these because my elbows were hurting from diving and crawling and what not so I was gonna by the DYE pads but the guy at the store convinced me to get the protos. I put them side to side and they looked almost exactly the same and they fit the same but the protos were like $15 less.
Now field use. First game i played in these some guy was posted up on the left side of my bunker and I popped out to snap back at him and took like 4 off of the pads.
These pads have saved me countless times out on the field since i bought them. I highly recomend these.

I got these elbow pads because it seemed my worst bruises were in the arms. The pads REALLY helped. Great feel, awesome fit, could look better, but overall great. Dont have more to say, just get them. 50 word minimum- blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blah blahb albh albh

Padding, looks, fit, fairly comfortable
Can get your arms sweatier than usual
I got these proto arm pads for an obvious reason, the arms are one of the most hit spots and ive had some nasty welts on my arms. These arm pads are great. At the third day of play i used them, there was one game where i sprinted down the snake side to bunker this guy with a pev's ego. Unfortunately, one of his buddies in the back told him i was coming up and he was ready for me to run right to him. Almost every shot that hit my arms, which were about 5 or 6, didnt even hurt at all. IT was very surprising to find all these shots all over my arms. So, if it can block those shots from close range, then i think they are great. PEACE$
Very good for the money, block any hit from bruising you.
Durable, havent ripped, confortable, and is jus like the dye's. jus cheaper
None so far
I love these pads, very comfortable, have used them every time and they havent ripped yet, provides hella bounces, ive only had one ball break and about 20 bounces. These are a must have, u gotta get them, i help out at a paintball place, and everyone has them, myb not this type but they all reccomnd getting them
This is one of those things that is a must buy, even if its not this brand, u need these

These were a gift to me. These are great elbow pads. For fun I decided to crawl on a concrete floor, and I didn't feel a thing. Hands down, buy these elbow pads. You will not be disappointed. The material is very breathable and comfortable. If you want good elbow pads look no further.
You definetly want to buy these in person they will not fit everyone. I got the extra large and still had to do alittle cutting around the inside of the elbow to keep them from cutting os circulation. But once I modifiled them a little I loved them, saved on scrapes and bruises plus you will get to play alittle longer when the paintball just bounce off of them.
Buy in person Only, but if you do get some that fit you will be happy with them.

Gave me bruises in the crease of my arm
With me crawling and diving, these save my elbows from being torn up really bad. You can crawl all day with these babys on and never feel a thing.
Also you can get some major bounce with these pads.
After playing with these weekend after weekend, i found bruises from pinching(i think) that are in the inside of my elbow. You can solve this by wearing a long sleeve shirt under the pads, or just stretch them after a while. They work great with me now, since i got them fitted just right.
Stay where you put them
None that I've found
I play mid so I need good elbow pads for bounces and the occasional slide or dive. These pads are perfect for that. They are very soft on the forearm part, and hard on the elbow part. This is a great design because you protect your elbows when diving and you get bounces when you hold your gun up. The best feature about these pads I think is that they stay where you put them. Mine are a little tight once it gets half way up my forearm but that keeps them on snug. I played a game where I went crazy diving and sliding and these pads didn't move an inch. As far as breathing, they're great. I wore mine all day and my arms felt very cool, I also didn't realize I was wearing them they are that comfy.
Great product. They stay where you put them, breathe well, get bounces, and do what they're meant to do extremely well. Definately get a pair.

Little tight on the upper arm
i don't really need padding on the arms for diving or crawling or whatever - i need it mostly for bounces. i could've avoided many hits if i got these sooner. But the protective factor is still nice & useful.
i wanted to get the JT Skinz but i'd have to order them and i'd want to try them on first. These Proto elbow pads just happened to be at a store i went to recently.
These, JT Skinz or Empire's elbow pads are very similar. i'd suggest finding a place you can try any of those on before buying them.
