Dragon orthos are a solid Plastic shin guard that can be form fitted to your leg. It will also mold itself to your leg after a few uses. It offers the maximum protection possible for your entire shin. The outside is a hard shell with ventilation holes. Comes with a storage bag.
(note: illustration shows both shin pads, but not as you would wear them. One shows an ankle view, the other the top view.)
Orthos do not have straps, none are needed, they are held in place by wearing outer socks.
It is strongly suggested to wear liner socks between your leg and this pad, for comfort as well as to prevent the foam from sticking to bare sweaty skin which can lead to unnecessary wear to the foam, which is NOT replaceable. Liner socks also prevent Contact Dermatitis, a rash caused by bacteria.
The Sizing is ADULT. Before ordering, measure your leg. For proper fit, the high side is worn on the outside of the leg.
Measure along the shin bone from the ankle joint to just below the knee cap, or 1" under if preferred. Measuring with hockey shoes on may help get a more accurate length.
Large = 12" tall, wide fit (measure from ankle to below knee cap)
Medium = 11" tall, standard width (measure from ankle to below knee cap)
Small = 10.5" tall (measure from ankle to below knee cap)
THE PAD CAN BE CUSTOM FIT FOR WIDTH BY HEATING BRIEFLY WITH A HAIR DRYER.
You may return for a refund if dissatisfied and unused. (If you do return a pair of Ortho pads they will not be placed back into stock.)
FOR BEST RESULTS WEAR LINER SOCKS UNDER YOUR ORTHOS.
