That and the pants simply aren't the most protective. Decent protection for the price, but for me personally if I had to do it over I would have went with a top of the line Tackla. I'll see how the custom sewn in padding holds up. No more hip bruises means no reason to shell out ~$160 on a pro level pant. We'll see.

As to the One40 we'll agree to disagree. Considering they're roughly the same weight as the 5030 I feel they offer a lot more protection. If I get hit with a hard shot in the sternum, clavicle, or spine of a vertebrae with the One40's I feel like it's going to hurt. A lot. In the 5030's I think at best I'll end up spending the night in the hospital.
