tippmann a-5 response trigger, no name hpa tank (still good), empire tank cover
good padding, BOUNCES!!, comfy, see review
ok lets start out with the bad news, they are a little pricy, ($45), after you take them off they feel a little weird, atleast if you played for about 2 hours straight..., and they can slide down a little (they dont have the little sticky things like the new empire ones have, not 2 bad though.
the good, the very first game i played i got hit in the arm, didnt feel a thing, also got a bounce, through out the day i diddnt have a break on my arm once. like a said they have great padding, a good way to test is that you put them on, then then slam your arm into anying you see (a wall, table, etc...) and if they are good you dont fell a thing. also they have great mobility, they take a little to break in, but after you do that you cant even feel them.
ps. watever you do DO NOT after you wash them hang them by the thumb hole i made that mistake and now the hole is twice the size it should be
Over all i recomend thees pads to anyone who plays paintball

Thumb Loop Design, Balance of Protection and Flexibility
Padding is thinner than some may like or want
Well being on a eclipse team i switched out my dye elbow pads for some Eclipse ones and so far have been very happy with them. I love the thumb loop design and when they are fitted properly they dont move at all. they are very flexible and easy to move around in. A+
Great Elbow Pads for the money. Also come in a handy storage bag.
Decked out one of Species Intimidator, and a Rapper.
Have good padding , thumb holes, style
Stiching is weak
Over all they are pretty nice and not to expensive. Have good style to them their like storm trooper gear or something. I bought size medium and they are kind of tight but defintly do not move around. Which is the problem I was having with my Jt's. They would slide over when you dove and everyday I'd come home with bleeding elbows from practice. Also the sleeves would slide down and my wrist would get scraped up as well. The thumb loop on these makes that impossible to happen and the snug fit insures they don't move around. So, I came home pretty happy that day and hopefully everyday from now on. The only down side I saw right off is the stiching is pretty weak the right arm had loose threads on the inside that could be pulled out. I was able to pull the stiching around the wrist out and some around the upper arm which I did not like at all. Hopefully it will not be a problem in the future. Other than that I wish it had padding on the inside elbow area which is kind of sensative and tender.
These are some nice arm pads worth every penny. Keep an eye out for the loose threads though.
