The Mako series of pads is designed with one philosophy in mind; give you the best possible freedom of movement within the pads. Even on the low-end of the scale, the Mako M3 Elbow Pads give you that freedom.
Much like the top-end Makos, the M3s have foam that better moves with your natural movements, allowing you to move your arms with ease. Pads can be very restricting but the M3s keep you moving at your pace.
The forearm is covered with molded foam, allowing for great protection from slashes.
Keep a few bills in your wallet but still get that great Mako protection.
