I play both offensive and defensive line and these pads are great. For the price I think they match up with much higher priced big names. It is a matter of taste but I really like the lower vinyl strap, it makes the pads feel much more secure than the elasticated fasteners many makers use. They have stood up well to two seasons of university play. Much of the padding is removable so it can be washed. There are a few downsides, they are not the lightest pads on the market and the are not the most breathable however they stack up well against other companies products in this price range. All in all, for the money I don't know if there are a better set of pads on the market.

I received these pads for Xmas and have been looking for the seller ever since. They came unassembled (not in the description) and when attempting to assemble them, they appeared to be parts missing. If there is some sort of guide to assembly I'd appreciate it. Until then I can't rate this product as higher than 1 star as it doesn't function as I need it.
