When it comes to protecting your arms, there are many options to choose from, each fitting different needs and preferences. Arm Guards are commonly a slightly larger, more protective, version of an arm pad. Arm Pads offer protection for the elbow and some of the forearm and tricep. They are what is most commonly seen on the field, but do not offer as much protection as an arm guard does. Elbow Pads are just that, they offer protection to the elbow, and typically not much to the rest of your arm. These are most commonly used by skilled defensive players.
