I had the chicken wings, they're a great product, you get 2 levels of protection- at the start of every trail your elbows are padded, by the end they've fallen down and you've got armoured wrists
I love my POC Bones. They look ridiculous tbh, proper stormtrooper... But the protection is huge and they're really cleverly articulated and stay where they're supposed to, so they don't need much strapping or wrapping- just a very lightweight "sock" and 2 loose elastic straps. So they're actually about the least warm/sweaty pads out there. Expensive though and you need to be happy with the looks.
Never found a soft pad I really liked tbh.
