    Looking to purchase one of these two knee/shin combos, anyone have helpful personal experience with either?

    I have the Launch Pro's, I rarely notice I have them on during the ride, mounds of sweat when I take them off but can't complain since they offer great protection. Haven't bailed on them yet but have prevented tons of shin smacks from my pedals.

    Fox Launch Pro Knee/Shin vs. Lizard Skins Softcell Knee/Shin Combo

    I bought the lizard skins last season to replace tld lopes. I can't speak to the fox pads, but I've read mix things about them, mostly good stuff. The lizard skins knee/shin combo are pretty comfortable for all day lift/shuttle rides. The strap system works and they don't slide down. I crashed a couple times with them last yr at mammoth and they don't shift when they make contact with rocks or hard terrain. I was also surprised of how well they ventilate. In saying that, I wouldn't use them for pedaling around in, but strap them up to the pack and lace them up on the downs.
    I don't tend to smack my shins too often anymore, so I actually just bought some POC vpd's to replace my old Kyle straights, and even though they are $$, I could tell they are well worth it. I'll probably still turn to the lizard skins for rockier terrain, but I mostly just ride at snow summit, so no rocks
