Elbow pads.

Hey all,

How can I tell which elbow each elbow pad goes on? neither of them have a "R" or "L" and straps latch down on both sides.

Thanks!

There should be a big flap on each that would wrap around your forearm. Those flaps should start on the outside of your arm and wrap to the inside. This is to give you a solid wall on the outside to protect against slashes and such.



Look at the elbow pad on the right only. The the side to the right (N in EASTON) should be on outside and the side to the left (E in EASTON) should be on the inside. You can tell this pad belongs on the LEFT arm since the protected side is on the left.

Thank you very much - that's how I've been wearing them! Perfect. I just wanted to double check!

No problem. I still have to take a good look at my elbow pads to make sure I'm putting them on the right way, haha.

Exactly! I had the same ones for years, they were simple, old, beat up. I knew them. I got these new, fancy ones and it's just insane to me, haha.

Glad my instincts were right though.
