Q: Has the fabric been independently tested so I know it really works?
A: We have conducted a number of tests to determine the efficacy of our fabrics. The anti-bacterial properties were evaluated using an AATCC Test Method 100-2004 Assessment of Antibacterial Finishes on Textile Materials. This testing of the silver coated fabric showed that it prevented the growth of odor-causing bacteria and after 25 washes the odor bashing performance was unchanged, meaning it did not lose any odor bashing power.

Q: Why should I use the Silver Edge Gear shin guard pads?
A: To stop the stink from those stinky shin guards! And because they have a foam middle, they make the shin guard more comfortable. The shin guard pad wicks moisture and reduces slippage by allowing the shin guard to contour around the shin.
Q: How do the shin guard pads work?
A: We build a three-part protection into our moisture wicking shin guard pads for maximum odor control. A peelable sticky back, a foam middle and a silver coated lining. But what’s the real secret to their scent-stealing success? Pure silver for odor killing power. The pure silver in the lining bashes odor-causing bacteria. Our patent pending Advanced PE47 Technology means the silver can go on stopping the stink for the life of the shin guard. The foam middle absorbs sweat, making the shin guard more comfortable and reduces slippage by allowing the shin guard to contour around the shin. The sticky back means the shin guard can be applied to every type of shin guard – new or used.
Q: How do I apply the Silver Edge Gear shin guard pads?
A: The shin guard pad has a peelable sticky back allowing it to be applied to any new or existing shin guard. If the shin guard has been already used it is recommended that you wash and thoroughly dry the shin guards (one last time) before you apply the Silver Edge Gear pad.
- Place the Silver Edge Gear shin guard pad, silver side down, over a single serving soda/water bottle to mimic the curve of the shin.
- Place a shin guard on top of the Silver Edge Gear pad, and using a pen, outline the shape of the shin guard onto the peelable backing.
- Using scissors cut the Silver Edge Gear pad to the shape you have outlined.
- Peel off the plastic backing and apply the pad to the backside of the shin guard (the side that is placed on the shin). The pad is very sticky so be sure to correctly locate the pad onto the shin guard.
- Repeat this process for the second shin guard. Completing one shin guard at a time will prevent you from confusing the left pad with the right pad.
