    MT Pads are all right, not great. The hook and loop aren't set in circles but straight across the pad, so they're pretty tight (uncomfortably). Thickness is okay, nothing special - about the same as Hayabusa. Durability is good though.

    The hayabusa shins looked really thin to me, could pick up knocks easy off them, unless they're deceptively padded?

    just checked out the Hayabusa shin guards, they look awesome, but much more expensive than the badboy shin guards.. i guess you get what you pay for though

    another question - the price listed is for 2 shin guards right? it only displays one, but im guessing its not 80-90$ for just 1 shin guard right? probably a stupid question yeah..but just making sure, you never know these days lol.

    It depends, they're relatively thin (the shin guards) compared to Windy, Twin, and Fairtex. All those are hook and loop shin guards that have an exceptional amount of padding. But if you have any urge to do MMA sparring, or Kickboxing along with TDs, etc you want the thinner ones that secure closely.

    The Combat Sports and Everlast MMA shin guards work well for kickboxing along with grappling. Remember, shin guards really aren't doing your partners much of a favor, they're just protecting your foot from elbow, and shin to shin contact.

    Dont own any training gear but I do own some of their clothing (long sleeve and sleeveless jerseys) and I've had no issues with them.
