I need an elbow pad recommendation

My old ones are falling apart (25 yrs old) and I need to get new ones but all of the newer ones seem to me to be a bit too bulky and cumbersome. Is this the only choice one has these days in elbow pads or is anyone still making some smaller, less bulky elbow pads?

Sher-Wood has their "Tradition" line of gear, which is usually less bulky than modern stuff.

(WTF Amazon has hockey gear?)

Easton makes good ones. I have a pair of mid level stealths and they're great. Snug and not bulky. RBK is also pretty popular, they're based on the old Jofa designs.

I'm happy with my CCM V06's. Not fancy or bulky by any means but they certainly get the job done.

Jofa 5044 by far one of the best elbow pads ever made.

Don't miss out on your opportunity to own your own pair so you can skate like the pros, and elbow with impunity!

I own a pair of the 5044s but changed to the 06 RBK 8K because I took a crack on the wrist that hurt so bad I almost puked.

Last year's 6K. Super comfy, super protective, on clearance.

if your main concern is mobility, definitely look into the graf g500 elbows. the lightest, most mobile i've ever tried on...and this goes back to elbows from the late '80's. i don't use them because i just bought a new pair about 6 months ago(ccm V06) and no one near me had them at the time. but now that i've had a chance to try'em on, i'm seriously thinking of picking up a pair.

I dont know if you want a hard shell or a foam shell but i love the foam less bulky and move movement. these are what i use now and i love them. i hate having a big bulky pad on my elbow.

I have always used the basic Cooper elbows but i saw a pair of Mission 70's for like 20$. They are actually pretty comfy.

I went with Bauer One55's...not the smallest elbows, but unobtrusive. Unfortunately, I have Popeye forearms so the biceps are way loose, but they were cheap and don't move around as much as most.

Completely happy with my Warrior Hitman elbows. I think they are on clearance at total hockey too.
