Overall pretty happy with these, the breathability is outstanding and they are quite comfortable. The fit isn't as good as the knee guards which I also purchased. I found that the velcro on the lower arm couldn't quite reach its attachment point fully, leaving the rough part of the velcro rubbing/chaffing on my arm, while the top adjustment strap had to overlap a bit too far for my liking. I found they kept gradually creeping down my arm as a result. Certainly not a deal breaker for me and I will continue to use them on gnarlier trails. To be fair I have disproportionately large forearms compared to my biceps so that might affect the fit for me. I would recommend giving them a go especially in hotter climates like here in Australia as their breathability is second to none.
As regarding the size, you should follow the sizing chart of Dainese correctly. Protection is like a made to measure if you can choose your suitable size. I wear it with knee guards when riding on a road. I would buy again.
Nice ventilation. I wish they had a XS size with more narrow plastic part. With S I will need to take it in. It fits a little funny. However, I'd rather use this one on hot days than the one I currently have, which is a Troy Lee. The Troy Lee keeps sweat in on hot days.
This is my first protection gear I bought, I have tried many brands including the popular POC air. This is by far the most comfortable protection I tried. Stays up okay, I maybe adjust them a couple of times. Airy and very comfortable. You forget them after a couple of minutes. Size is quite big. If you are between, step down one size.
Worth the money! Best pads I've had in a while.
