I've been riding with these for about 6 months now. I used to ride with full leg protection only when I went to Northstar or something. Because I climb everything I come down, the full legs were WAY too hot. These rock! I ride with them everysingle time I ride now. They are extremely comfortable. I would advise you to try them on first though, after reading a ton of different reviews about different pads, I finally decided just to go down to the store and try them all on, man was I glad I did. You won't know what brand or type fits you right until you actually try them on...and you won't wear them if they don't fit you right!
