No durability whatsoever. The first batch that was sold were all breaking very easily right above the heel. They then changed the manufacturing process to supposedly make them more durable, but that didn't work either. These things have broken just deflecting soft passes, with very mild slashes to the shinpads, and of course with heavy shooting. A lot of vendors are actually warning people NOT to buy them.

The first one we had broke 10 minutes into the first practice on a deflected pass. The second "improved" one didn't last more than one game. Easton refused to replace the second one, even though the actual on-ice usage time was less than a few hours, because they only replace them once.

I'd stay away from them. They are very light, but are fragile like fine crystal, and Easton won't stand behind them.
