great guards saved my knees a bunch of times, overall great just make sure you tighten them up because if they are just a little loose they do start to slip after a few runs, but i do have to mention that these guards can take a hit.
I love these guards, with one exeption - they are very bulky and it was hard to get used to.
My first impression was fantastic since they have plastic plus air padding... Eventually, after trying them on underneath my snowboard pants they felt very uncomfortable and too stiff. When I stood up the flex did not change... They were still a bit bent just like on this picture which eventually would crate a pressure point on my legs. Overall, the guard is way too big. From my point of view, I think they would be the best for beginners and people who like rails. Though, I definitely don't recommend if you're planning to shred all over the mountain...
These pads are alright. They offer good protection and saved my knees quite a few times. But they don't tend to stay in place and like to slide down to the point where the knee pads are slightly below my knees. I tried tightening them to get them to stay in place but all that seemed to do was chafe my legs. I would probably purchase different pads if I got another chance but these are better than nothing.
