Those Level gloves are the best wrist guards I have found and the guard works different than most from a physio standpoint. It's good tech and your guards will last forever pretty much. All you need is one hard fall or a mistake in the trees and your season is ruined.

The wrist guard in the Level V gloves are also way more comfortable than any other guard I've tried. Don't have to fight to get the gloves over some 3rd party wrist protector either! They work seamlessly with the glove.

This was with the wrist guards?? Fuck!!
Those bones will heal in cast in no time. Without wrist guards all damage would be in the wrist - moved little bones, torn ligaments - very hard to repair. You could have wrist pain when lifting heavy items forever, and if you have a manual job could prevent you from working.

This ^

Wrist guards last a lot longer than helmet because they're not meant to protect from impact or dissipate energy...... it's ussualy plastic or metal and that lasts a long time, unless they just get broken.

The hand is a super complex structure. You break the scaffoid or ligaments and you're lucky if you are ever able to heal it (and that's after surgey). And the fracture doesnt look nearly as bad as that x ray above. In fact, sometimes a scaffoid fracture doesnt even show on an xray.
