Need help on elbow pads

I am looking for some elbow pads, but I'm not sure on my size. I tried some small Dye elbow pads but couldn't get my arm in them. I tried on some kids mediums, and they fit nice and snug. What size should I get? His mediums were worn and probably stretched. Also what size would I be in other brands?

Dye runs small so if you fit into DYE mediums, then you will more than likely fit very easily into any other brand in medium even if not broken in.

Ok thanks. So should I get the Dye mediums or large since the mediums were broken in?

Depends how the mediums fit. If they were still pretty snug even though they were broken in, I would go with large personally just for comfort.


I wear the DYE XXL ones and don't really have big arms at all, my backup are medium Empires just for comparison, and even after wearing them for long, I don't really feel them any more broken in than they were new.


If possible find someone with large Dye ones to compare.

I tried on a couple today (PE, Dye, Exalt) The Dye pads seemed to run the smallest. I am 6'1", by no means do I have HUGE arms, normal size. The Dye pads I tried on an XL, they fit pretty tight, the XXL fit better but still a snug fitment. I ended up buying these (best all around protection in any environment).

The Planet Eclipse, I tried on the XL, they fit about the same as the Dye, although I didn't like the elbow fitment on these pads at all.

The Exalt, I also tried on the XL, these fit very big. It was extremely stretchy material that wraps around the arm, so the XL felt sloppy. Minimal protection too, but great price point.

All in all, I ended up with the Dye pads, due to being not much more expensive, great fitment around the arm (not going to slide around while playing), and great protection whether you are sliding on turf, grass, dirt, mud, whatever, you will be good in all conditions! The padding is very thick and durable! Hope that helps!
