Like one of the other reviewers, I came to these from a pair of POC VPD 2.0s, and had the same experience with those (stretched out to the point where they won't stay in place). The Slayers don't have that problem; I've used them for over 8 months now, and while they do stretch a bit over time, they fit like new again after a washer/dryer cycle (and hey, how nice is it that you can actually do that with them!).

They're the goldilocks pad - just enough to protect, but also comfortable even when it's hot out, and don't get in the way pedaling.

The only issue I have with them (and hence the 4, rather than 5 star review) is that they are a little fragile. Seams are holding up ok, but the light fabric around the sides and back has developed some tears from what should have been minor snags. I'm OK with that as the price for how comfortable these are.

Familiarity: I've used it several times

So far they're great. These are a big step up, protection wise, from pads like the Fox Enduros (which don't have the gel pads), but they're just as comfy for pedaling. Less of a pain to get on and off than the G-Forms, and way sturdier (those tend to rip after snagging on stuff). The only gripe I have is that the silicon grippers are almost too effective for hairy legs.

I'm coming off a pair of POC VPD 2.0s, which protection wise are more along the lines of the slightly beefier Hellion (got a pair of those as well). I loved those pads, but they started stretching out and not staying in place. The Slayers are great for all around trail riding; I use the Hellions when I ride rowdier stuff (they're great as well - bit warmer, bit less unobtrusive, but pretty bombproof on the protection end of things).

Well made, comfy, doing their job. Only have about 30-ish hours riding in them yet, so too early to tell about durability.
