Only bad part is that the velcro straps only lasted one season which is pretty important! We had to tape the straps down and go all the way around my son's torso with tape to hold the pads on. Other than that, these pads provided a lot of protection for 1 year in level U9.Pros:
Good protection, specially the chest/heartCons:
Velcro straps do not hold at all after one season from normal wear and tear in dry Nevada weather.
