I haven't used those but I absolutely love my R.E.D s ones and also have the Protec IPS Rail guards. I like the R.E.D s ones a lot better because they have a seperate knee and shin guard. I am assuming the Protec ones would be compareable as well though I have no experience with them. I don't think I like the idea of the big ass straps wrapping around. The R.E.D. ones have velcro straps, but they are lower profile.
