Comments: I purchased the total one shin guards in September and I am 100% satisfied with this purchase. Prior to the total ones I was using the bauer x40 which is equivalent to the new x7.0. I have to say the level of protection is night and day between the total ones and x40. After blocking shots 3 times and winding up back at the bench in pain missing my next 2 shifts because I thought I might have broken my leg with the x40's I decided it was time to switch to a pad with greater protection. The total one provides the maximum amount of protection completely wrapping around your calf and leaving very little space uncovered. At first these pads feel bulky but once you step on the ice you realize that is just because it is so protective. There is less bulk then the RBK line but more than the vapor line and these pads are very light and breathable. I have blocked shots and no longer have fear or step to the side when someone winds up from the point anymore. Also the anchor strap is awesome - the pads don't move of shift around at all. This pad is well worth the extra money and if you play in a league where people are taking serious slapshots don't even look at the x7.0 just get the total ones.

Comments: I decided to upgrade my shin guards (previous ones were Bauer Vapor 30's). It's funny - I walked in to our local hockey shop certain I was going to get Reebok 11K's. I knew I wanted top of the line, and everything I read online said the the 11K's were the top choice of the pros. Now, my game will never be mistaken for a pro's. So, I actually did something smart and listened to the recommendations of the store's equipment expert. Tried on the 11K's and really didn't like them - too bulky. Being familiar with Bauer (from my Vapor's), decided to try on the Total One's. That's all it took. These guards are amazing! Comfortable, all the protection you could want/need, light weight, and space-age materials. Kind of hard to describe, but when you put these on, you instantly feel maximum protection, which leads to confidence to play your best. Bottom line: Don't be afraid to buy top of the line - you'll always be happy with it. Highest recommendation!
