# 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.

After using these for a while now I can say that these are the best pads I have owned. I have never had a problem sliding and using my elbows and hands to help. These fit perfectly under your jersey and provide you lots of protection.

Only con that I have found is that the logos near the hand have fallen off. I have had these for over 6 months and the dye logo has just come off. This affects the performance in no way. I would recommend these to anyone.

Hands down the best pads I have ever used. Every time I bought a new set, I always ended up going back to my Dye core elbow pads just because they were so much more comfortable. the half glove pretty much makes it.

Pros: Excellent padding, relatively cool
Cons: Can get warm
Historically I have rarely worn elbow pads. Besides the fact they won't stay in place on my scrawny arms, they would make me feel over-heated in no time.

Fortunately these are a nice exception. They go from bicep to palm, so they stay in place even while sliding. A large part of the under arm is mesh, so they breath fairly well. On hot and humid days they will still seem warm, but more bearable than anything else I've worn. The padding is second to none. Whether it's promoting bounces or taking all the impact of bad slide on your elbow, these things are amazing.

I am tall and thin (6'3" @ 170lbs) with smaller than average arms. The mediums were too small for me; I could barely get my hand in and out of the cuff. Larges are almost perfect; a little big around the upper forearm, but just right every where else.

These are probably one of the best elbow pads out on the market. There's a reason why they haven't changed the design in so long.

Sizing does run small. I got a Large originally because my old PE elbow pads were a Large but had to end up getting an X-Large in the Dye pads.

I bought a pair of these used and absolutely love them. The coverage on my arms and top of my hand is perfect, and it definitely makes a big difference on those unpleasant hand hits. My only complaint is that it's designed for a man's arm . . . so it's a little tough to fit on mine (womens arms tend to be smaller in the forcep and larger in the bicep) but it's worn in nicely.
