  • these fit my small arms really well

    Good:
    sizing, comfort, can use it for the whole field
    Bad:
    A bit more pricey than the K18s for hardly any difference
    Overall:
    Great comfort, great look, gret flexibility, great fit. Great! I almost got the K18's but these fit a bit better. I'm not the biggest guy so I bought a medium and the medium assault fit better than the k18. These are so comfortable you can use them for midfield as well. I play attack and midfield with them.

    Good:
    freer arm movement, protection, streamlined profile
    Bad:
    price (ouch)
    Overall:
    These are by far the most comfortable and lightest arm guards I've worn. I was going to get the Brine King 3 arm guards coz I've had Brine for ever, but thought I'd check these out. Both have similar features like non-slip, protection, but the Assaults felt so much better on. The assualts didn't fight me when I bent my arm and they're more streamlined. The Kings just looked bulky.

    Good:
    light and flexible
    Bad:
    needs more external protection, bulky
    Overall:
    I don't know why these have such a good reputation. Sure they're flexible and really light, but the external protection isn't that great. If you're going to go for arm guards, you do that more for protection that anything else, and these aren't good in that area.

    Go for the arm pads. Similar protection without the bulk.

    Good:
    protection, non slip, no bruises!
    Bad:
    be sure to get the right size
    Overall:
    These have amazing protection. You can hardly feel any hit they protect that well. I had arm pads prior to these and I'd feel most of the checks and come out in bruises. With these, the only marks I have are where the arm guards don't cover.

    I'm over 6' and heard these are a bit small so I tried on the XL's. In the end I got the large size. The XL's were massive and kept sliding down when I gently shook my arm. Unless you have huge arms, which I don't, get the large.

  • Heaps better than arm pads, these are fantastic

    Good:
    fit, protection, don't slip, value
    Bad:
    the velcro strap hangs over the edge and catches on my jersey
    Overall:
    I was going to buy the assault arm pads, but pony'd up and bought the arm guards. They're so much better for not much more cost. The flexibility is about the same, but the protection is way better. A lot more of your arm is protected, but that's not saying the arm guards are bit and bulky. I think the arm pads don't cover enough and are too small.

    I have found over the past 2 months that the edge of the velcro strap is curing up and catching on my jersey. I just curl it back the other way and that sorts it out for a while.

    Good:
    Awesome protection, comfortable, best of the lot
    Bad:
    Wish they were a bit cheaper
    Overall:
    The Assault arm guards are the best fitting arm guards ever! They feel great, light and arecomfortable to wear. They cover most of the area of my arm where I get slashed which is the main reason I got them. Mine come down to just above my glove. It's a bonus they're so good in the other areas, coz I didn't care. Just sick of feeling the checks.

    Yeah, they're pricey, but it's worth every cent. Get them.

    Good:
    fit, comfort, protection, feel great
    Bad:
    nothing I could find
    Overall:
    These arm guards are great! I used to play midfield and then moved to the attack line. I wore STX cell defence arm pads and would get beaten up every game. They were like an advertisement to defenders to "hit here".

    I thought about getting just arm pads but after a couple of weeks of bruises I wanted something that would really protect my arms. I tried on the arm guards and was sold.

    They fit so well and don't pinch or squash my arms. There's heaps of protection on them and they fit really well. I'm a pretty stocky guy so I got the XLs. But the large's fitted ok but were a bit tight for me. In fact, these larges fitted better than all the others I tried on.

    These have got to be the best arm guard going around. They great flexibility, are sooo comfortable and the protection is out of this world. What else do you need? Do not go past these.

    Good:
    so so light, protection, keep you cool
    Bad:
    price, but it's worth it.
    Overall:
    These are great man. These are so light it's rediculous. There's so much protection too which is weird coz they're so light. They're more expensive than the ap's because there's so much more to them. Even with the extra padding, they also keep your arms cool too.

    Go with the guards if you play attack, but other positions can get away with the normal arm pads.

  • nearly as good as the K18's but not quite

    Good:
    non slip internal liner, protection
    Bad:
    a bit heavy and don't feel good on
    Overall:
    These have the new no-slip internal system which is the only difference I canse between theses and my K18 2's. Other than that, they're pretty much the same. And the K18's don't slip, so it hardly matters.

    I prefer my k18's because they're not as heavy and don't irritate me.

    Good:
    protection, lighter, durable
    Bad:
    Nothing I could find
    Overall:
    I found these to be a little slimmer and tighter than the K18's. Thisruns to form because the K18's are bulkier and the the Assaults are a fraction smaller. I liked both, but wanted something tht would have no chance of getting in the way. The assaults were the choice for me. But really, I'd have been happy with either.
