    Lightweight, no-slip, and very comfortable, Development 24, 2013
    After a recent spill where I finished up in the ER with some stitches I had this idiotic thought – maybe padding might be a excellent thought!

    After reading a lot of reviews on Amazon, JensonUSA.com, and BackCountry.com, I chose to go with the TLD EG 5550 elbow/forearm guards and the KG 5450 knee/shin guard.

    In small, the EG 5550 is an exceptional choice. I’m 5’7 / 155lbs, and went with the ordinary size. Using TLD’s measurement charts, ordinary is the size they recommend and it’s a exact fit.

    Key benefits:

    - Lightweight
    - Very breathable
    - You honestly forget you’re wearing them
    - They will not slip

    The only con for these is that because there are no adjustable straps, the measurement needs to be spot on. Likewise, you’ll have difficulty in cold weather trying to slip a thermal base layer sleeve underneath these.

    On the knee/shin guard side of things, I went with extra small (according to the sizing chart – that’s what matched), and it was a snug fit. But I felt it slid down when I pedaled so I finished up returning them. There are a lot of fantastic reviews for the KG 5450 so I wouldn’t count it out on my part, but again with no straps it needs to be a dead exact fit.

    Although protection is the top priority when it comes to protective armor, comfort is up there too, and the material that TLD uses is exceptional. Because if you’re going to be wearing pads for hours in hot weather, you’re going to want something that isn’t going to drive you idiotic with discomfort.

    Small Grom Knee Pads, September 26, 2012

    This review is from: Troy Lee Designs EG 5550 Adult Elbow/Forearm Guard MX/Off-Road/Dirt Bike Dirt bike Body Armor – X-Small
    I really bought these for my toddler to use as knee/shin pads. We bought the XS size. He is two and these fit his legs like they were made for them. He has used them with his balance bike to ride a small DH at Highland Bike park and some riding at a local skim park. So far the pads fit exceptional. They do not slide down or go out of the way when he wrecks. The pads are holding up well to his manipulate with plenty of scrapes and before a live audience with no signs of hurt. He doesn’t notice them at all once he starts riding. Once he gets a small larger they can transition into elbow guards for him as an added bonus.

    The only downside is that they are a small pricy, but you get what you pay for in this case. For me that means having a kid that has taken a few excellent cascade with no injuries to keep him out of the game, a product that has not fallen apart and also looks cool. Money well spent in my book.

    Only for light usage, Development 11, 2015

    Very comfortable to wear, allows you to pedal straightforwardly and offer excellent protection for light usage. BUT since you have to pull them on and off they widen over time and start moving (mainly the knee guards). At my first serious blow the pad took most of the impact but then it just went sideways, the cloth ripped apart and my elbow got peeled. But it protected it well against the impact which might have broken the elbow.
    Bottomline: If you ride aggressively go for something sturdier
