d3o Shell: d3o technology is the core design element of the Bobcat d3o pad. This material is designed to be soft when "at reat", thus allowing full freedom of movement. However, it hardens instantly in the caase of impact and then provides the same protection that a classic rigid shell would provide.
Heavy Duty Fabric: Heavy duty nylon for long lasting performance. Tear-resistant mesh fabric at the back of the knee for comfort and moisture transfer.
Riding Control: Asymmetrical side pads give extra grip for when controlling the frame against inside of the knee.
Fully Adjustable: Elasticized and perforated neoprene sock gives a snug fit and silicone gripper on inside and Velcro straps make sure the stay where you want them.

Rated 2 out of 5 by Anonymous Bad fit, sloppy stitching
I bought Bluegrass Super Bobcat as I was looking for a comfy, but well protecting knee-shin pad.
Did my online search for sizing, measured my legs, was pointed to M.
Received it, very disappointed, ways too small. Totally inadequate sizing guide...
Also saw that the stitching was rather sloppy.
I ordered an L anyway, but while sizing was ok, the strap closure was already half undone... So sent both items back, rather disappointed. For such a high-price item, I'd expect top quality

Offer excellent protection and fit like a glove. They don't disturb you, even when you are padelling - could be a little longer though for protecting better your lower shin - but a definite recommendation to everyone
