I wear Bauer One60's now and they seemed fine until a blocked shot that hit the side (still in the front plastic section but close to its edge) badly bruised my leg. It's been 2 1/2 weeks and I still have a huge welt.

Maybe this is just a freak thing that won't reoccur if I pay more attention to proper shot-blocking technique but I'm thinking about getting a better pair in case I get hit again while taking a stride or a deflection or something.

What would be good pads to get for protection value? I looked at a few at stores but none really strike me as having great padding behind the hard plastic (like how helmets have dense foam under the hard plastic layer).

Any recommendations?
