This Shine Armor review will cover the three different models of shin guards available from this popular brand. As with most shin guards reviewed, one problem that many users complained about was that it tends to slip off when you are performing hard work, or even walking for a long period of time. The Shine Armor is made from a tough and durable fabric. Many reviewers said that this is exactly what they were looking for – a helmet that protects as well as looks good while being comfortable to wear. Since these models come in a variety of colors, the choice is really up to you.
One of the most popular aspects of the Shine Armor is that you can choose to buy an “insured” model. This basically means that if you have an accident and the helmet were to crack or fall off during use, the manufacturer will cover the cost of replacing it. The downside to this, however, is that it means that you need to purchase an insurance policy for the helmet well in advance of any accident. If you are, for example, working in an area where insurance is not available, your helmet and gear could be at risk until you have paid the premiums. Many consumers said this was simply not a high enough price to pay.
One problem that reviewers did not like was that some of the shin guards were not actually very fit for their head size. Many people said that they were either too loose or too tight. Many models, such as the Shin Guard Complete, had to be squeezed tightly against the wearer’s head to make sure that it was snug. On the other hand, one Shin Guard Custom Fit was described as having the right fit by reviewers, but it was difficult to determine whether it was an improvement over the original.
Aesthetically, the new Shine Armor helmets look nice and are well crafted. The review participants all agreed that they were well worth the money spent on them. Some reviewers also commented about how the color of the protective visor changed with age-the shades become darker around the edges. This may not affect many riders, but those who wear dark colored helmets will want to make sure they can easily spot the visor on a bright sunny day.
As with any new helmet, it is important to do a few test rides to ensure proper fit. A helmet should feel snug without leaking. Test rides are available with all of the models sold by the company. When riding, you should be able to see your own reflection in the light from the helmet.
Overall, the Shine Armor review participants were generally pleased with their purchase. Most were even more than happy with the price, considering the quality of the product. Their only real concern was the design of the helmet-how well does it follow the model’s instructions?
