Ya, I know, they're pads and some people think wearing pads is lame. I just started snowboarding after mountain biking for years and I use these while riding my bike. I decided to try them as I learned snowboarding recently and they were flawless. They're low profile and squishy like neoprene (think wetsuits) when you're moving around but on an impact they stiffen up as hard as plastic to take the fall. The change from soft to hard is almost instantaneous so its hard to tell just by touching them. Google 'd3o' for videos of people with them on being hit by shovels and not feeling it!

I bought the DAKINE Ridge pack to use with the Camera Block for my Canon XTi package. I only own 3 lenses and none of them are huge zooms (EF-S 10-22, EF 50 f1.4 and EF 75-300 which is not very big) My biggest complaint for my application its too big. I can fill it up if I lay all my lenses down but then they bobble everywhere since there's almost 2 inches of space between the lens and the top-flap. If I stand the lenses upright they fit nice and snug but I only fill half the block and my backpack is filled up with padded empty space. I wish it was about 3 inches shorter and and inch or two shallower. However I know that people who have a full package fill it to the brim so it definitely does its job. I also wish it came with more padded dividers, another 2 would have been perfect. The only other downfall for me is when you buy the DAKINE Sequence backpack the block has hook-and-loop strips on the side to mate with the backpack. The separate Block doesn't have this hook-and-loop. Not a really big deal but I would have liked it since I was planning to add hook-and-loop into my Ridge pack. Oh well, still one of the best camera systems around :)
