The best part of this pad is the ekg technology. Besides that there isn’t anything special. After coming from the Rome 19, there is less padding that wraps around my sides and the bottom flap has a really awkward fit. Because if the 2 piece system, there is a very weak spot between each pad that has put me out of games. I can’t say I really recommend this pad to many people, such a shame because I’d expect the best with a $170 price tag.
