    Quality of 661 4x4 shin and 2x4 elbow guards?

    I know there is another thread on this, but how well do they hold up? im a fairly muscular guy so im not too worried about broken bones but in an elbow/forearm guard i think that would help

    661 stuff is pretty good quality. my pressure suit works great. i have seen the shin guards too and they seem nice. get 'em.

    you need to chill out dude. you can't always get instant answers.

    hope they work out if you decide to go with them.

    I've considered getting some shin and knee protection for next season. My only concern is that no one near me sells any (that I have been able to find) so I'd not be able to try them on. I'd hate to spend the cash only to find something uncomfortable after 20 minutes on the trail.

    Actual impact resistance does not compare to many on the market, but they are my preferred leg armor. They can tear, do not provide good rock deflection, but the wrap around calf protection keeps the pedals from drawing blood. I'm on my second set...

    they're awesome

    they protect the leg from anything. My friend put them on and we kick them as hard as we could to see what would happen and he couldn't feel a thing. And the arm gear is decent but they don't cover up the arm enough for my liking, but they still get the job done.
    peace

    umm..kicking each other in the leg I don't think compares to slamming your leg some sharp rocks....but ya I use the 661 gear too. its alright. I think I'm going to order up some hard shell pads soon though

    Got both and they seem well made, haven't used the arm guards yet, but the 4x4s are holding up nicely after 2 years' use. Keep in mind they are "soft" though, so have their limitations.
