Question pads

I'm thinking about picking up the eclipse elbow pads and i was wondering how they size?
i'm like 6 foot, 190, decent shape, and i was wondering what a good size to go with would be?

then, i just saw their knee pads. are they decent for the price? i like them cuz they happen to be inexpensive(for paintball gear)

Large should fit you fine or if you find your arms are quite chubby go with the xl. It won't matter if its a bit lose because the thumbholes hold it in place when your diving.

alright, thanks.
i was thinking the large for both elbow and knee pads then.
so if large knee pads is a bad idea, chime in quick, cuz i'm gonna buy them soon(tonight, pacific time)

A lot of people like the Proto and Dye knee pads. I just use volleyball ones. Cheaper and have more padding. The downside is they restrict movement a little more.

Can't comment on the proto knee pads but i wouldn't recommend the dye 08s. Too restricting, sizes are very odd and they left me with a huge rash on my thigh.

i bought em, but if they do that, i'll return em for something else.
if they don't fit, actionvillage is good about that stuff, so i'm not worried about what i'm buying
