Re: What Kind Of Knee Pads?


get the pants with the built in pockets. i use skillers but know of plenty other using the blakladder or duluth trading brands.

i do a lot of flooring and i find they are so much easier on the knees and are cooler so your back of the legs don't sweat.

Re: What Kind Of Knee Pads?


Best knee pads on the market by far are ProKnees. They are spendy but they are custom fit, take all of the pressure off of the knee, and have replaceable parts.

Pro Knees all the way! I've tried many and finally gave in and bought these and I'll never use anything else. I cannot speak more highly of them

I've used proknees since they came out.Go thru several sets a year but it is still cheaper and less painful than arthro surgery...

Re: What Kind Of Knee Pads?


i use the trousers with the build in pockets , Snickers are called in Eu and Skillers in US. the kneepads are thick enough to support my weight but very comfortable. sometimes i don't even realize that i'm wearing them. they never get dirty and you just remove them when washing the trousers . i hate the ones with straps that go on top of the pants.
