One potential issue
I have two pairs of the V-E1N knee guards, wear them a great deal (under riding pants), and have been pleased with the level of comfort and protection. I hoped these would be similar. (In both cases, I worry about built-in armor in jackets/pants moving around too much during a crash.)
Unfortunately, I ran into an issue with the elbow guards. My jacket sleeve is plenty large to accommodate the extra bulk of the guard...but when I go to put on the jacket, the lower end of the guard "sticks out" relative to my forearm and catches on the arm hole of the jacket. Without someone to physically unhook the two, there's no way for me to get the jacket on. Believe me, I tried.
This could be just a problem for me due to my particular build, but I think it's worth pointing out as a potential issue. Wearing these on top of the jacket is not an option for me.
Apart from that issue, I see no reason why they shouldn't perform as well as the knee guards.

Good coverage, comfortable, and good looking. Allows for air circulation. Highly recommend. Bought knee guard set also but not as good as elbow guard.

michael w:I believe these would be good for trail riding. Regarding mud - the liner can be cleaned and the outer covering can be wiped clean. These also provide good protection against tree branches, but only for the outer part of the arm and elbow. The "top" inner arm/forearm would not be protected so well, since only the straps cover that part of the arm.
I haven't tried any other elbow protectors out there, but these should be adequate for trail riding.
I just brought a pair and I like them! I have long, skinny arms and the fit is comfortable. It has a snug fit on me (measurement around my elbow - 11.5 in./29.21 cm). If you have bigger arms (over 13 in./33.20 cm), these might be too small for you. Make sure to check/look for a size chart when ordering or call with your arm measurements to make sure you get the right size.
They don't move around on me too much. I haven't crashed with them yet, but i believe these would protect me in a crash at legal speeds. I ride a 600 cc motorcycle and i mostly wear these on the outside of my clothing.
Some advice: Try these on in a store, if possible. And wear a long sleeve shirt or jersey to protect your arms from the branches, brush, etc.Jul 13, 2015
