If you are looking for a cheap but amazingly good shin pads for using when grappling, this are for you.
If you are looking for a shin pads for Muay Thai: why are you looking at grappling shin pads?
I practice Muay Thai 4 times a week, and I don't wear this for that, I wear a 100$ pair of shin pads designed for Muay Thai.
Of course this are less padded that a Muay Thai shin pads, because is not designed for Muay Thai practicioners.
Now, I'm getting into MMA (two times per week), and I bought this as an entry level shin pads to use on MMA training/sparring because there is a complet different sport.
This shin pads are hard to put it on, and harder to remove; just because the the idea is that they stay put as you move and roll and grappling and whatever on the floor.
Once and again, I will recommend this for everybody looking for a pair of cheap yet good pair of grappling shin pads.
That being said I have to tell that I'm a 5'11/200 lb guy and the large ones are kind of tight on me, however I have fairly bulky legs.
Regardless, I do like them. The don't twist or rotate, are light & for the most part comfortable. The biggest drawback with these neoprene sleeve types is that they tend to start to stink after some time as it's really hard to clean the insides. I've found that washing them tends to break them down, so my next pair won't be these, but my shins are stronger because of them.
Today the Contender Fight Sports MMA Grappling Shin Guards (Black) arrived and after comparing them, I see they are a much tougher foam and have a stronger coating. These offer much greater protection and I have no fears about Sparring this week with these pads.
I am 6" tall and weight 265lbs (it's all in my belly, so my legs are well muscled, but not much more than average sized for a 6" tall person). I ordered a large and they are very snug, but not uncomfortable, if I was any taller, or if my legs were any thicker an XL would have been the way to go.
As far as cleaning, rinse the neoprene every time after wearing and they wont stink. No need to put them in the washing machine.
What was not ok was that the foot strap is a thin strap instead of being a neoprene sleeve and broke after just 3 months. Im going to sew it back on, but I think this is a flaw in the design. I think my preference would be a full sleeve on the foot and straps on the calf.
