Anyone found some awesome knee pads they have found to work well? Outside the pants? Anyone find any that fit under pants that work well?

Or, just use whatever knee pads from Home Depot?

I've been using a gardening pad for the past few years and seems to work nicely for me.

It frees up needing to put on knee pads and walk with them on....but it's another thing to carry and placing when getting into position. Honestly - it's so part of my process I feel naked without it.

Example from Amazon

Will be tracking this post to see what others are using and recommending.

I think I'm going to give these a try

kneepads

I thought about the pad, but I don't want something else to carry around.

I went with the Scott Kelby suggestion and got mine at Lowe's. He suggested to get ones with the gel insert, that it was easier on the knee. I wear them outside of my jeans or shorts.

I found these at Wal-mart...they were only $5!

http://kneepads.com/ulv12.html

I have disabilities and I had both knees replaced and one has a rod and pins keeping it together...I have tried numerous kneepads and these are one of the best I have found for my needs!

Unlike the ones with hard plastic, these give and take as you move around and you do not lose your balance as much.

They are...Lightweight and can be worn under or over the pants and easily stored away in my pak... or just hang them from the pak with the velcro straps.

I liked them so much...I went and bought 3 more pairs to have just in case they are discontinued or whatever!


Good luck with your search!


Keep on Shootin!~

These kneepads are ~$10 at Lowe's and get creamed by the reviewers. And I would agree that they would not hold up in industrial/remod applications. But for sports shooting they do the trick: flexible, lightweight and fit underneath the pant better than any that I have owned. Think volleyball pads.

I have bought some heavier-weight plastic industrial gel pads -- and they are very protective. But they are also cumbersome and make me feel like an extra in a Transformer movie. Overkill.

I thought about getting knee pads like those but I'm a little worried about wearing them in hot conditions. I had to wear a knee brace similar to those pads a few years ago and it got uncomfortable very quickly in the heat. I think run-of-the-mill Home Depot/Lowe's knee pads would probably be better in that situation.

I have used a pair of Nailers brand for over 10 years for everything from flooring, landscaping and photography and the gel is still nice and cushioning.

Not only will these be very hot, they are likely to be too tight, making them uncomfortable. Also, they are designed for your knee to be straight most of the time as opposed to bent most of the time. That fabric in the back, behind the knee, will bunch up when you're kneeling and be very uncomfortable.

I use some like these, and they are comfortable and don't get hot.

Thanks. I have a game this weekend and will try the first pair, if they don't work, I'll try your pair

Shot a game last night with these. Kneeling on real grass up and down, up and down. They worked well. Yes, my knees were a touch sore after a few minutes of each kneeling instance, but nothing awful. It was 80 degrees and very humid and they were a little hot, but again, nothing insane.

I'd grade them a solid "B"

Positives:
Fit easily under my pants
Didn't move or shift
Gave good protection
No movement restrictions

Negatives:
Got a little hot
Didn't offer absolute comfort

I use the http://www.511tactical.com/ pants with the removable kneepads and absolutely love them, but Andy probably just cost me $202.

I've finally worn out the Craftsman knee pads I have been using the last three years (older model similar to the Craftsman Stabilizer Knee Pads on sale right now for $20). They were comfortable but didn't stay in place as well as I would have liked.

I'm going to try the similarly priced ($21.95 right now) Alta Tactical Superflex Knee Pads ACU given its good reviews.

By hap chance I started using my mt. bike knee pads for photography. They're made by G-Form and they're soft and flexible, but harden upon impact. The first time I used them was shooting on the snow (to kept my knees from freezing) and now I used them on the sidelines and swim decks.

They're pricey, but they're comfortable (6+ hours isn't a problem), not too hot, flexible, wearable under pants, and you almost forget that you're wearing them.

I have my daughter's old elbow pads from when she was a kid. Works and fit perfectly. In opinion and experience, any knee pad that use straps are no good and hurt like hell after awhile. I've tried them them for football, tiling, carpentry and other work that required me to be on my knees. I like those that have the elastics and slips up on the knee with padding (like what Lion posted in post #3) and no plastic cover. The pads that Lion posted in post #3 from Amazon are the kind I use and like.

Just One Man's Opinion.

Just going to chime in with my $.02 on these.

Absolutely, without doubt, the best pant/knee pad combo I have used. The pants are so comfortable and with the adjustments they have, the knee pads stay perfectly in place all the time. Amazing.

Yes, expensive. But I got a pair off ebay for a price easier to stomach.

Now if I could just find a set of knee pads that work as well when I am wearing shorts instead.

Best ever. Love the knee pad inserts. Lucky for me, mine were free. Used the for 7 months covering combat operations in Afghanistan. Special Forces operators recommended them and have not looked back since. Great for hunting, hiking and paintball or air soft as well.
