The padding, especially the poron, offers phenomenal protection but at the same time it is thin, low profile and flexible so you can cradle, pass and shot with comfort. The Dakota arm guards also have multiple diagonal creases which increase flexibility and comfort without compromising protection. IMO Gait Dakota arm guards are up there with STX Cell2 and Brine LoPro arm guards, less flexibility but more protection than Brine LoPros, very comparable to Cell2 in protection and maybe slightly more flexible, but all 3 are great products. My only problem with these is they're ugly.Pros:
Poron protection is the best, great protection with great flexibility and comfort.Cons:
Make them look sexier, like the Dakota shoulder pads
Going from STX arm pads to this was going to be a big jump but I saw one of my friends using it, so I though I would try it out. Surely enough these pads are amazing, the gel cushion at the elbow is awesome along with the overall protection is just fantastic, you can get hit all day & be just finePros:
1) Comfortability 2) Weight 3) Design 4) It slips right on 5) Just the right protectionCons:
