about as durable as a pair of pantyhose
when i got these out of the box, they looked perfect. exactly what i wanted. full arm coverage but in a super light and breathable package. and the stretchy material that covers the inside of the arm is super light almost like a mesh. you can see right through it. awesome. i put these on, they fit great and i walked around the house. i took them off and put them on a few minutes later and there were already little rips in the stitching where the mesh part meets the more solid side material. in 2-3 spots on both pads. almost like a run in a pair of panty hose. and that's just from putting them on twice. no thank you. not sure if i got a bad pair or not, but i'm immediately returning these. too bad.
