Yes, I searched a bit already on forum :P

Just wondering if anyone has any recommendations for knee pads that will allow me to slide even on rough terrain (ie. like my Fusion X's) and not slip, or just gouge the back of my knee with the straps.

When me and my bud go play pump we usually just say "Screw the vests" and jerseys and what-have-you and just play in shorts.

Annoying as it is that renters are terrified of you unless you also have coveralls, I like to have sliding ability since enjoying it with my Fusion X pants - especially useful for moving up against semi's/full-autos.

Suggestions? B)

Volley ball knee pads are cheap, lightweight, work amazingly well, bend with ease, and are easy to come by at any sporting goods store. Highly reccomend them.

Playing in a kilt creats the same problem. You kneed (hehehe) to protect your knees.

Personall I wear knee/shin pads.

The best recent models that I have found are the Valken ones. The padding is a closed cell gel with a double layer over the patella.
The shin protection offers great coverage during knee slides and harsh field conditions.

I either use volleyball pads or I just use roller blading ones if I am playing on a harder surface or if it hasnt rained in awhile.

Question: will the Valken type stuff hold up on gravel, etc.? Will the volleyball ones? I'm a little worried cause I seem to recall volleyball pads being 'smaller'. :huh:

Honestly depends on you. Full out knee slides in gravel are going to chew through any knee pad out there.

a normal player in gravel the Valken pads will work amazingly well. The material is thick, but it is also a neoprene and will tear on sharp stuff. But then again, most pads will tear in the same situations so they are not to be considered flimsy.

Volleyball pads typically just cover the patella, so yes they are smaller.

I always had problems with my under armor gloves in football. Maybe i was just buying the wrong kind.

As for the feet good luck.
