Compare to other Elbow Pads

“Good elbow protection and long-term durability”

The Good: don't slip, good protection

The Bad: a bit tight at first

Overall Review:

To pad or not to pad, that is the question...

For my riding style, I don't have a need for the full body suits of armor so individual pads come in handy and can be mixed and matched depending on the riding conditions du jour.

These elbow pads start out really tight and I had to keep checking to make sure I didn't accidentally order a size too small. I'm not a ripped dude either so just be fore-warned. After some rides they tend to stretch out a bit and are actually as comfortable as elbow pads like these get, which in reality is not all that comfortable, but hey that's the price of protection.

Also, despite the fact that "soft" is in the name, the protection for the elbow is a hard shell, which is nice to know that a sharp rock won't just go right through and wreck your day or season. I have a year's worth of riding out of them and expect to have a few more at the rate these are going. The cost is reasonably good so I'd say these Kali elbow pads are a smart investment.
