The Franchise showcases Warrior's redesigned shin caps for 2011. The cap is lighter, better fitting, and more breathable. The Franshise is the only Warrior shin guard with the Silver Shield antimicrobial moisture-wicking and odor controlling liner. Warrior used a two-piece strap system on the Franchise. The top strap is a Sling Wrap strap and the lower calf strap is soft elastic. The neoprene Sling Wrap locks the leg in place without any pinching.

Comments: I have had these for 4 weeks, 4 games and a few practices.
Some of the stitching has already come unravelled, the top straps are stretched out and dont hold as well as they did on week one,
and the insert pads slide around during play, the small velcro strips are not enough.
BUT, the biggest issue is the pads don't protect my knees as well as I had hoped. I have taken several slap shots to the shin and
never felt a thing, but on the 2 times I fell directly on my knee cap it hurt like h**l. It's like there's nothing there, the knee cap shell
doesnt dispurse the impact.
Im I defenseman and get pretty reckless, if you're like me, these aren't the pads for you.
Comments: I like the adjustable knee "donut." Fit very well, provide excellent protection, front and
back. Wide calf strap makes it nice. Light weight, durable, and do not get tangled up in your ice pants. I highly recommend and give
them 4 1/2 out of 5 stars.
