Straight out of the box I noticed a 1/2" gash where the stitching was blown. Then when I looked closer I noticed another small bulge on one of the parallel seems where the stitching just totally missed the fabric. I tried it on and it was okay... as long as I kept my arm straight! Trying to bend my arm with this pad on was like curling a 60lb weight, except it also dug into my bicep. Although in fairness the fit was a little snug. I'm normally a large, occasionally a medium and these were med/large so I thought the fit would be perfect. Not so! Also, the padding didn't seem to be anything special and I don't know what the memory foam marketing is about. It certainly couldn't remember my arm was trying to bend. Straight back in the box. A waste of shipping time. Don't bother!
