Comments: Best pair of shin guards I've ever had. Lightweight, plenty of protection, comfortable, I don't know what else to say. You won't be disappointed.
From: Rob, Santa Barbara, CA

Comments:  I love the tapered design, these are ergonomically the best shin guards on the market for me. I wear my shins behind the skate tongue so the "hinged" design at the bottom of the shin guard is a great feature. You can always tell when a piece of equipment is awesome because you don't think about it during the game. Well done Bauer.
From: Travis, VA

Comments: Great shin pad. Nice and light with plenty of protection. Normally used to wearing shins over skate tongue but enjoying the change. The narrow tapered fit allows the bottom of the shin to fit nicely behind skate tongue and doesn't interfere with movement. The strap system is ok but
could have been done a little better.
From: Jason, Australia

Comments: Best pair of shin pads I have bought to date. The strapping system feels like the equivalent of tape however is simple to strap and unstrap. The removable calf protection is also a plus. One of the most unique features is the ability to move the protection above the knee cup up or down for increased protection or increased mobility.
From: John, MA

Comments: Very high level of protection and the tapered design fit close to the leg. There are very comfortable and also stay cool during game. The con is the strap system does not make the shin pads stay one tight.
From: Kyle, Ottawa, Ontario, Canada

Comments: These shin pads are awesome. They offer great protection with the right amount of taper to fit comfortably underneath the skate tongue. The anchor strap system works great and keeps the pads in place for the whole game. I'd highly recommend these and wish I bought a pair sooner.
