Manufacturer DescriptionSubscribe to Reviews on this Product - Edit this Product Listing
These comfortable, cool elbow pads feature soft moulded forearm padding and flexible elbow padding with rubber grip to keep your jersey from riding up. The inner panel is full mesh ventilation whilst the tough outer panel has ventilation holes. The adjustable velcro, elasticised bicep leash keeps the pads in place.
When wearing MacDev pads, you can jump, slide and forearm smash stuff with confidence.
Product Availability 
The MACDev Elbow Pads are older, so while they may be available used and in a few cases new, they are not commonly available anymore.

Review: Picked these up for $35. These are way better than what I was using. I wear them underneath a jersey and they feel great. Like an extra layer of clothes on your arms. They don't move even when you slide or dive. They are light and breathable. High quality materials and stitching. One thing is that the straps are kind of tight. I got the mediums and the strap at the top goes right over my biceps. Like its suppose to. But it was almost so tight my hands felt numb. It was easy to fix by stretching them.( I strap them tight to something a little bigger in diameter than my arm for a couple days) That seemed to loosen them up a lot. Now they are perfect. They also cause a lot of bounces on my forearm because of the neoprene paddling. Since only your head, marker, and forearm are exposed when you lean out of a bunker this is pretty useful. Under your jersey they don't even show.
Conclusion: For the quality and fit I give these a perfect 10. I haven't tried any of the more popular brands but I don't need to. These are perfect. The only other brand I use is REDZ, but even their pads don't compare

Review: I was in sydney over the summer and i swung by macdev headquarters to see what the place was like. While i was there i went ahead and picked up some of their new elbow pads. So far ive only used them two or three times but here is what i have experienced so far.

pro's
These pads have been very durable so far. I superman a lot and these things keep my elbows from getting all banged up. They are very breathable in the forearm area and they have straps at the top to keep them from sliding around. Even if it does slide around the surface area of the pads are so big that even if the pad was twisted half way around your arm your joints would still probably be covered. Not bad for bounces either.

con's
I paid $40 australian (about 35 american) for these at the factory. Of course most of you probably wont be going to the factory anytime soon so i cant really comment on how much you can get one from a dealer. Also they seem to be a bit big. I wear a size medium and it nearly engulfs my arm, so you might want to try them on before you buy them. The other con is that it can sometimes be difficult to get stuff from macdev. They only have a limited number of dealers in the states and actionvillage is not one of them.
Conclusion: If you can find em, buy em. They work great (so far) and dont seem like they're gonna be ripping or tearing up anytime soon.

Review: I can't say much... it does what it's suppose to do. I have got shot in the padding and it bounced off so good for that. Very breathable when there's nothing over the arm pads like a jersey.
Only kind of bad thing is breaking it in some... I just wore mines around the house for a little.
Conclusion: I'd recommend them. They do what they're intended for.
