I tried just one wrist guard first as my Six-Six-One wrist guard was pretty useless - a waist of money. This EVS product is just what I was after. Excellent protection with your choice of levels of protection. The thick velcro piece should be longer as I find it better to fit this over my glove and the velco is therefore a bit short. Fix that EVS and it is perfect. I immediately ordered the second wrist guard. Please note that you need to order qty of 2 if you want both.
