Love these things. Way better than the cheapies I had, but didn't break the bank. Pivots are awesome, straps comfortable and wide, good coverage, etc. Hopefully the hinges and plastic buckle clips hold up to abuse.
I use these for trail riding, have EVS braces for racing. These have lasted over a year now with now prob's, comfortable and decent protection.
I'm skinny and had to shorten the top strap a couple of inches.
