|No excuse to not wear knee guards at this price|
First impression: Elastic bands are nice and wide, Velcro closure is on the guard instead of behind the knee. Looks to be stitched and padded well. Not much protection beyond top of knee. The Velcro placement should be reversed, the course Velcro on the guard and the softer Velcro on the strap. Knee cap pocket not very deep or well formed. Post 2.5 hour ride evaluation: No cutting or chaffing from the elastic or Velcro closure. Did not have to adjust at all during ride. Protected me very well from branch hits to the knee and upper shin. Little to no protection to lower thigh right above knee. Knee caps are a little tender from poor pocket, may break in over time. These knee guards kick the crap out of the Fly Flex II knee guards Looked at retail of the MSR Gravity knee guards and was shocked at the reasonable price. Buy the MSR Gravity knee guards and still have money left for one craft beer or 5 PBR pounders! Comparing to the fly flex II knee guards. Awesome price point knee guards, would highly recommend.
