A little bulky compared to soccer shinguards, but better protection by far. My son wears them as a Varsity Lax goalie under sweatpants and loves them. His coaching staff loves them, and his goalie camp coaches recommend them as well. He's taken a lot of shots to the shins before wearing them with some permanent blood vessel damage, so as a parent anything I can do to reduce or stop more permanent damage is worth it.

I have never been happier with a shin protector from ankle to just below the knee. Very strong and light weight . Excellent fit.Pros:
You don't even feel it when moving around. And comes with socks as well.Cons:
Pretty much got it right.
Overall I like themPros:
No bruising from balls.Cons:
They get really warm really quickly
Overall they look great and offer great protection! Perfect for a lacrosse goalie...Pros:
These wrap around your shin a little further than typical shinguards, which is great for a little extra protection in goal. The removable padding is great for handwashing. Also, the straps are perfect, as I hate wearing sleeves in practice.Cons:
The ankle protector portion is a little stiff, and needs to be broken in. Also, because they're molded, and wrap around pretty far, they'd be pretty tight at first on anyone with large calves. I assume they'd break in a bit eventually, though.
removable padding for easy cleaning & washing. It is comfortable and does not irritate my ankles because of the rubbing of the padding on them.Cons:
The new feature, the "straps," should be an option. I prefer not having them. I ended up cutting them since I use them with socks. I tried once using the straps, but they were too short and made it very tight.
