Lightweight and very comfortable
After a recent spill where I ended up in the ER with some stitches I had this crazy thought - maybe padding might be a good idea!

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

In short, the EG 5550 is an excellent choice. I'm 5'7 / 155lbs, and went with the medium size. Using TLD's measurement charts, medium is the size they recommend and it's a perfect 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. However I felt it slid down when I pedaled so I ended up returning them. There are a lot of great 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 perfect 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 excellent. 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 crazy with discomfort.

PROS: Breathable, Lightweight, Non-slip, Incognizant, Fits Under Clothing

CONS: Won't Fit Over Base Layer

Works great; no discomfort
I am 39, so I like these pads for the added sense of security in case I fall. I mostly trail ride, but that includes some descents and I am getting more interested in all mountain riding. These pads are perfect. You have to get the size right, and for me the medium was the ticket: they have the right balance of snug to stay in place but not so tight my arms feel constricted. I am very comfortable wearing these for long rides. The padding is solid too. I haven't taken any spills yet, but they are plenty rugged and I know there will be a time where these will pay for themselves. I especially like how the padding extends down the forearm, which makes these ideal for those riding way more hard core than me.

PROS: Durable, Lightweight, Versatile

Awsome pads!
I bought these after a bad crash into a cactus. These are really good pads with full coverage. They feel really comfotable with great breathability. They are hard to put on, but they stay put and do not need adjustment once on.

PROS: Good comfortable fit

CONS: Hard to get on

TLD Elbow Pads
These pads are pretty comfortable to wear during a ride. The stretching fabric keeps them in place and is breathable for warmer weather.

Do the Troy Lee Designs EGL5550 Forearm/Elbow guards provide wrist support and protection or would I have to purchase the Troy Lee Designs WS5205 Wrist Support guard and Elbow Guards EG 5500 instead?
