Shift Enforcer Elbow Guards
Decent protection for the price
I wanted something I could throw on with the vest that I purchased and be able to wear any hoodie or jacket that I may feel like throwing on that day. I wonder about the criss-cross design and how well they'll stay put in a fall but just wearing them they feel pretty secure.
They look pretty good and cover everything that they intend to. If you don't want to spend a lot and need something to throw on under a jacket, or even w/o, then these are a good choice.

Great product at a great price
I purchased this product as an addition to my chest and shoulder protection. The fit is good overall. They have not been put to the test yet in a crash but I have confidence they will provide the protection I need.

Pretty good elbow protectors for a great price
I bought these because the ones that came with my Icon jacket move around so I removed them and bought these Shift Enforcer protectors. These stay on my elbow under my jacket or under my jersey. They are adjustable and are staying in place. I think these provide decent protection for the price you are buying them for.
They only get hot if you are not moving so I recommend putting them on just before you go for a ride and take them off right after. They aren't even noticeable under my jacket and I occasionally forget that I even have them on. I don't use these every ride, only on longer trips. I do like feeling more protected just in case.

Love em. Cheap, compact, worth it.
I don't always want to wear my Dainese jacket. These are great under sweatshirts or casual jackets. Goes on and off quicker than my gloves. Stows small inside backpack. Handy for quick short runs around town or if a pillion doesn't have moto jacket. It's not your #1 protection gear but it's an inexpensive backup and works really well.
I tightened down the straps all the way. They are elastic so the tighter they are, the less likely to shift around during impact.

Good for the price, and work great
I've unfortunately already had a chance to test these in a get off. Went down on a hard, rocky trail, at medium speed (well medium for a trail). Foot, shin, knee, and elbows hit a few big rocks. These elbow guards performed their job well and I got up with nothing but a bruised ego.
They fit well, are comfortable, and I barely notice them.

Comfortable, Easy On/Off, Better than Nothing
As far as value, this is a decent product. They are nothing over the top, but I do feel that wearing these is at least better than wearing nothing.
The strap makes for a quick slide on or off the arm, and they are compact enough to wear under the elbow armor in my jacket comfortably (the jacket armor probably wouldn't stay in place, but I don't see a reason to remove it).
They don't belong on the track, but for casual rides or newbies these are probably adequate. I will probably upgrade to something a little more substantial as I become a more aggressive rider.

exactly what I wanted
Great product, very satisfied with how it fits and the adjustable cross straps. I was looking for protection I can throw on real quick for my commute to school/work, these are simple and don't have Velcro that will stick to everything once you toss it in a backpack.
