Not As Substantial As They Appear
on December 13, 2015
Sketchy craftsmanship, low-grade materials, junk. They appear much more substantial than they are. Upon arrival you will see that the outside layer of mesh is a form of see-through mesh. The orange dots on the shell are just decor held in place by a paper backing on the inside of the shell. The pads themselves are held on by two elastic/Velcro straps. But, the materials are so loosely put together it makes for a lousy fit that just doesn't stay in place.
Regarding fit - they fit my 65 pound 7 year old son very well, with room to grow. But I don't suspect they are going to last very long for him to grow.
I got these on a $10 special. I'll let me sons trash them and toss them and maybe they will spare them from a skinned knee or elbow first.
Photos are attached for closer looks at the materials used.
