Starting from the hand up there is a little bit of padding, sectioned, on the back of the hand. What isnt padded is mesh, except for the palm and lower wrist, theyre made of a thicker material. Makes since since you'll be tougher on that part anyway. It snot rubberized or anything like that so it wont help your grip like some gloves, but the material wont get wet so you wont lose grip either. Theres a pinky and thumb hole so the pad wont slid. The pinky loop could be tucked in easily if you dont want to use it. The stitching around the wrist is flared out so the mesh can run down into it and your hand has plenty of room to move. Theres an elastic band that secures the pad to your wrist. It works, but somtimes when I slid it comes undone so I just put some tape on it and its fine. Up the rest of the forearm its a mixture of stretchy material, mesh, and padding until its on the actual elbow. On the elbow the padding gets thicker and textured to help you crawl better. After wearing them some I've seemed to break them in so theyre not quite as tight, but they still fit fine. I jumped over a chain about waist high and tripped and fell on them and was just fine. I had a nasty mark on my hip, but nothing on my arms from the asphalt. That was at the CFOA Derty South open which i played in later on that day. I cannot say I had a problem with them being uncomfortable at all. Not too big, small, or hot. The only thing I wish they would've done was made the elastic band better so it wouldnt come undone so easily. 9.6/10 if I were to rate them.

I r ugly, be warned. o_o

Not a concern of mine since I don't wear gloves anyway out of preference. If you did though I could see that.

with gel inserts.... how much bounces do you get off that? I can't stand so much bounces. They need to start banning certain gear.

I have gotten bounces off my lens before, but I think that was a fluke.

I regularly get bounces off my grill. It hurts though. The grill smacks your lip, but still bounces.

They're meant to protect you. You can't do both. You're advocating banning protective gear because you might get a bounce? I get mask bounces off the soft parts, should we be going back to straight goggles?

I recently got these same pads, Awesome! I don't think they are ugly at all. You do get bounces, 2 in the first day with them but my arms came out unscathed.
