After a lot of looking around at shin pads with Velcro and buckles I saw these which just seems perfect for everything I do from kick boxing to grappling you can have these on and do everything with out the worry of them moving out of place or hurting your opponent unintentionally. I am 6"2" and quite thin so went for a large on the recommendation of the MMA Universe peeps and they fit perfectly.
This of course is just a short term review as I have only used them about 8 times now so hopefully down the line I will be able to update this with how hard wearing they are but so far so good. If you follow the fitting guide they are easy to put on and take off without causing any stress to the seems which are triple stitched for extra strength but you don't want to risk ripping you pads now do you.
To answer the washing question you cannot was them but a quick squirt of fabreeze and they will be fine for a long time to come.
in regards to the shin guards. Can you wash these. The ones where I train smell like someone died in them and I dont want these ones sharing the same fate. does it affect the product negatively if you wash them
Outside of MMA I practise Kyokushin. For years I have hated shin pads with a passion because they never fit right, never feel right and are generally more trouble than they're worth. But, these Rogue pads! Oh my god! Outstanding. Finally, I'm converted, you can train full tilt for hours with these things and you feel NOTHING.
I tried them out before practising on a wooden dummy. Just curious. End result: it's incredible, you really feel nothing and give it 100%. Still recommend training as often as possible without guards (to improve shin condition) but if your going to wear guards, these are the ONLY guards worth buying (and believe me I've tried MANY, MANY guards).
The quality is outstanding. The fit is GREAT. They protect the shin like nothing I've ever experienced. They don't cut off the circulation, from this point forward these are the ONLY shin guards that our club will supply and allow. 10 Stars.
These were perfect. Very comfortable, at first I saw the price and i thought they were expensive, i never looked back now they are good value for money. I recommend these to everyone thinking of purchasing them.
