I've heard nothing but good things about Simmons pads. Solid choice for sure.

I'm a fan of white based gear only because I really do enjoy the look of it once it has been pelted by a bunch of rubber. Each mark is a job done right. It's kind of a pride/ego thing really.

I don't have much experience with Bauer leg pads (only worn Reebok and Vaughn) but Bauer gloves are by far my favourite. Vaughn gloves are close, but Bauer glove desings just feel better to me.

Also, that Bauer thread on GSBB had me raise my eyebrows. I've met a coupel guys who have had pro level totalone leg pads for over a year and haven't had that damage by any stretch. Seems like a one off situation and a major bummer that Bauer didn't bite the bullet for some customer service satisfaction.

Though, Fresh, I am quite jealous. You just started tending and your pads look alot better than mine and they match!

Here is my **** mix of gear:
