Beats the crap outta super glue!
Ya.. that's right. After taking a big crash 8 miles into a 25 mile ride and having to super glue a gash on my shin closed (really needed stitches but hey, ya use what you have) I decided to invest in some armor.
I'd give these a 4 on a 5 scale. Pluses: They are priced right and stay in place and fit well. Seems like when you wear armor you never need it.
Minuses: Still leaves a little of that lower shin exposed but all prtection is a compromise. Chicks dig scars...these prevent them.
