Review: I got these pads at the NCPA Nationals event in 2008. The exterior of the pad is made of kevlar giving it strength when sliding on rough surfaces. The pad itself is made up of Memory foam that, after awhile, does start to conform to your arm. The thumb loop is nice and prevents the pad from sliding up on a dive, but I can see it bothering some people, its a matter of personal preference.
i've had trouble with the upper arm Velcro being a bit short, and there are some sharp corners that need to be cut. The pad doesn't really articulate well, especially when bending your arm. I think this is due to the Kevlar outside which doesn't allow much stretch. Also, after a year, the pads still leave black marks on my skin.
Conclusion: Rugged, durable product. More likely better for a snake player that is constantly diving on all sorts of surfaces - definitely will survive abuse. Not a back player's best friend - though I've gotten bounces off it. Overall decent product but research alternatives.
