Protective Riding Gear

Take time to find comfortable equipment, then you're more likely to wear it.
I can't do the mx elbow pads. But the local paintball shop has elbow pads that are a lot thinner, they're basically a sleeve with about 1/4" of foam on the elbow/forearm. Not as protective as the mx pads, but these I can wear all day. And when I wear them, they do a better job in a crash than the crappy ones sitting in my closet.

Sounds like you don't wear much in the way of gear at all. Which, hey, your choice but as someone who shattered my elbow on a mild, low-speed trail ride, I can tell ya "don't need" is always a fallacy riding offroad. Always.
