I needed some protection for skiing, having promised my young nephews to take them to the dry slopes for lessons before a family holiday in the alps.
Having previously fractured an elbow on ice, i was keen for some elbow protection, so decided on "these" ...
God was i annoyed on opening and finding only ONE of them .. i should have read the amazon description more closely .. or maybe amazon should have made it more clear to people like me that speed read it was only 1 pad.
Anyway i was going to return it on principal, but the pad is pretty good, so i have ordered another pad to make it a PAIR !
I gave it 4* instead of 5 because there is a lack of padding on the side at the bottom of the elbow which is an obvious impact site
anyway i would recommend .. just remember if you need a pair of pads order 2 of the item
