These SHIN PAL guards not only offer impact protection from the front, but with their unique design which wraps around the leg calf, ...they also provide impact protection from the side. They are constructed of the same space age material used in professional football helmets.
For an insight on their safety and durability, see the testimonial from a former Semi-Pro soccer player and soccer coach in the last photo above.
Comfort is a major factor in whether a Soccer player will utilize a shin guard and the weight of the guard is one of the most important components in comfort. The lighter the shin guard the easier it will be for the player to run, kick, and compete in the play of the game. However, safety is the most important.
In testing by the Institute for Preventative Sports Medicine (IPSM), Doctors found that the SHIN PAL guards had the highest reduction of force (64.1 - 68.3%) in relationship to the lightest weight (2 oz) of all the shin guards tested.

Laid flat, the total dimensions of the guards are approximately 11 1/2" long by 6 1/2" wide, which includes the ankle protectors. The ankle protectors are attached to the lower part of the shin guard, do not protect the shin bone, and can be removed. However, for children under 12 years of age, the ankle protectors are highly recommended.
