# Lightweight Airprene Body - The lightweight airprene body is pre-shaped to conform to the natural bend of the elbow allowing the pad to provide ultimate comfort and flexibility. # Dye microinjection logos - Micro injection logos complete the design in typical DYE fashion. # Cup Shaped EVA Foam Elbow Pad - The cup-shaped elbow pad wraps around your elbow for a more custom fit. This goes beyond the pre-shaped fit of the airprene section. The new cup-shaped design was developed to provide you with the most comfortable fit possible. # Hollowed EVA Forearm Padding - This new style of foam wraps all the way around, covering the inner arm and providing more protection. The hollowed chambers of this new foam allow more air circulation around the forearm by keeping areas of the pad away from the skin, giving the pad a lighter feel. # Vent Ports - The new vent ports and 4-way stretch air-mesh offer optimal air flow to your forearms in conjunction with the hollowed EVA foam for the maximum amount of air circulation of any elbow pad available. # Gel Shorts - The gel inserts are highly impact resistant and help absorb brute force created from intense slides and dives. # Adjustable Strap - The adjustable strap allows you to tighten the elbow pad to your liking and helps keep the pad in place. # Integrated Slider Glove - The new integrated Slider Glove acts as a glove without the extra hindrance of covering your fingers. This new comfortable design provides reinforced palm protection to help against abrasive slides, while the back of the Slider Glove features neoprene compression for added protection to the back of the hand. The placement of the Slider Glove helps to prevent the elbow pad from sliding up your arm and offers unrestricted movement allowing you to have maximum control and feel of your marker. # Elastic Finger Loop - The elastic finger loop is an optional way to secure the Slider Glove, keeping the pad in place, but without interfering with finger movement.

Run, don't walk, RUN and buy yourself a pair of these arm/elbow pads (unless you have to wear someone else's for sponsorship reasons).

These things are fantastic. They fit perfectly, have great padding, and extend down the entire arm and even cover the tops of your hands. They won't move because they have the hand thing which helps to lock them in place.

Most of the time when it's hot, I wear one of my pairs of these (I have green and black) with a short sleeve Tshirt to play in.

You can NOT go wrong with these. I am really skeptical about a lot of paintball stuff, particularly pads, but these do the job and do it well.

I highly recommend these for players of any skill level, in scenario/woodsball or speedball settings.

Wow, these elbow pads are INCREDIBLE. I have nothing bad to say about these, but I'll go over everything that's great about them for the heck of it.

These things are a nice tight fit, and because the have the built in hand pad (it's not really a glove, as it has no fingers) it will stay in place even when you're sliding into that snake. I really like the hand pad thing, because I have cheap JT gloves, which have NO padding, but are pretty conformable, and I can slide those on over this and it gives be added padding. They even have a grippy material on the elbow so that it doesn't move around in youre jersey. They're extremely breathable too. Also, the elbow pads cover so much of your forearm that if you're hit, it will most likely bounce. I've only been hit in the fore arm about 5 times with these on, but everyone was a bounce , compared to those where it hit my bicep (which this does not cover) where every one was a break.

Anyway, bottom line it, GET THESE PADS, they are so comfortable you won't know you're wearing them, and you can slide without have to worry about hurting yourself.

You will not be disappointed by these pads. DYE makes quality products, and their elbow pads are no exception. They are incredibly comfortable; I don't even notice they are there while I play. They save me discomfort after a long day of play, and they even cause a few bounces here and there. Worth every penny if you are a serious baller.

Pros: Look and feel great, awesome protection, tough
Cons: High price brand new, can hurt the hand slightly
Overall, I highly enjoy these pads. They offer great protection and coverage of your forearm, which is a must if you're getting down and dirty with slides and dives. Plus, who doesn't mind an occasionaly bounce once in a while? Coupled with a nice baggy Dye Core jersey, your going to catch some paint. Anyway, it is a great pad overall. I find that when it rides up when diving, the thumb hole can put stress on your hand and make it feel uncomfortable (but this is with any arm pad). Just shift the pads when needed, and you're good to go. The pinky holes are silly but hey, to each his own.

Dye Precision 08 Elbow Pads Great pads, stay on perfect without shifting when sliding. Fit really tight which is great, only con is that the thumbhole area can dig into my hands

I normally am very skeptical towards paying so much for DYE stuff. However, while trying on pads at my local proshop, nothing fit me except these so I gave them a try. I picked up a medium and they are by far the most comfortable pads I have ever worn. They worked great and getting hit/diving you don't feeling a thing.

Everything from the extended hand gaurd to the form and fit of the pad.

The only thing I would caution is that they run slightly small. normally I wear a medium elbow pad and I needed a Large for these.

Pros: good protection and lots of bounces
Cons: hot
The elbow/forearm pads are great overall. They are comfortable and the hand protection they offer is a nice addition. You can still easily get gloves over them even though you have the built in hand protection. They get bounces due to the padding and you really dont realize you are even wearing them during a game. The only thing I dont like about them is they dont breathe that well and they are hard to get on but once you wear them a couple times they slide on fairly easily. Although its not enough of a complaint to not get them. Id recommend these if for nothing else the bounces they produce.
