Visco Elastic Polymer Knee Inserts?

I would love to find some visco elastic polymer double knee pant inserts. For some reason there are a million different kinds of gel knee pads that are wildly popular yet for some reason no one has thought of making a knee pad insert for double knee pants. There are plenty of crappy foam products?
Its a no brainer polymer is waaaay nicer on my knees than plain ass foam. Gel isn't some new-fangled technology its old news.
Maybe i just missed the boat on some better kind of knee protection.
I would love any help on finding the best knee pad solution!!!

Re: Visco Elastic Polymer Knee Inserts?

ive sort of been wondering why no one is using the design military has..

the tactical pants have clips right on the pants themselves that kneepads clip directly too. the knee pad is still over top of the pant and is more likely to stay in place when moving around. with the insert type if your pants droop so does the knee pad


putting down subfloor with glue and screws, well i saw dr. smith and the robot too , i had a martian burger and a sonic shake

This company has gel kneepads permanantly sewn into their pants:

I've been thinking of getting a pair to try.

Re: Visco Elastic Polymer Knee Inserts?

Great Ideas! I decided to go the custom route and bought a sheet of polymer impact gel
that i could cut and put inside inserts into my double knee pants. The only thing missing would be removable caps aka military style pants. Im thinking sewing in velcro would be pretty simple and you could add a cap when on more uneven surfaces.
I liked the kneedz a lot but i couldn't bring myself to spend $75 on a product i couldn't find any real world reviews for. if any body gets a pair id love to hear what they're like.

What kinda kneeling pad is that cole? I haven't seen that one.
thanks Guys
