They are comfortable, lightweight and provide a good amount of protection. I wouldn't call them minimalist but without the straps and Velcro they don't have a lot of weight and bulk and they don't get caught on my shorts. Once I've got them on I forget they are there. And surprisingly even without straps they stay glued in place by the stick rubbery ribs inside.
The only cons I could think of are the sizing. You have to get the sizing right because there are no straps to adjust them. And they get stinky but they machine wash easy.
These pads have saved my knees a few times already. I wouldn't recommend them for full on DH, but for the extra level of insurance in my everyday riding I can't beat 'em.
Gonna get the knee/shin next.
