Here's what others have to say...

I love this camelback, the lumbar reservoir, the internal storage, the pockets and organizers, but I am a terrible mtbiker and I fall... a lot. And this poor bag has taken the brunt of potential spinal injuries. The material is meant for light-weight use, and would be great on XC or road riding, but for the stupid stuff I do I need something more rugged... So MULE NV here I come....

Backcountry.com, you rock for taking this back and price matching the Mule!!!

I've worn these now on 2 to 3 rides and have had hard falls in small falls. they suck at preventing rash, cuts, and bruises. they are good for keeping bushes from scratching you and keeping dirt out of the wounds you still get. that's it. looking for tougher stuff now.
they do breathe well. and the large fit well. they stay in place. but keep my experiences in mind.

for mountain biking and love it. I considered the octane xct, but that had much less caring capacity for essentials.

I've got two tubes, pump, multitool, first aid kit, chain links, zip ties, light, and gels, and still have room for more. all of this is in the main compartment using the organizers. the accessible side pockets are unused but can carry my phone, keys, and more food bars easily.
the pack is super comfortable,I didn't even think about it or feel it on my 1.5 hour maiden voyage today. sits on my hips well, the shoulder pads just hold it up.
if you're thinking about this pack for trail and mountain riding, buy it!

I don't like these at all for the following reasons: 1) Too thick, way too thick. Like 1-1.5 inches of padding. Hard and soft materials make up this thick shell. Sure this would be good for a massive fall with direct impact to the elbows, but this leads to my next issue 2) Not flexible. Maybe over time these would fit better and conform to the joint and allow greater range of motion, and in the 10 minutes I wore them they seemed to flex better, but I couldn't get over point number 3) There is a hole in the thinner fabric on the inside portion of the elbow guard, presumably for breathability. But during the flexing of my elbow, skin gets squeezed out through this hole and is then chaffed by the sides of the velcro straps. This hurts, is not comfortable, and I don't think would go away during break in. I have red marks on my forearm from less than 10 minutes of wear.
These may do a good job of protecting, you, but that is if you actually wear them. And for the reasons above I wouldn't wear them. Returning.

Immediately my impression was that these are very thick, like 1.5-2 inches thick off your shin when worn. No way would they fit under jeans as stated in the product description, and who rides with jeans on the trails?? They are the only shin pads (for mountain biking) I have tried on, but if they're all this thick then my review is useless.
I have no doubt these would save you from pain, carnage, and even broken bones, but I was sweating in these at room temperature within 10 minutes.
I wish the local stores carried these so I could have seen them first....
So if thickness is what you are after, then these are for you. Thin protection? Nope...
