O.K. I am too old, my knees kill me after a few hours of crawling around in the woods. I need a good pair of knee pads. I bought a pair , but bought them too big... Now I am going to ask for you folks to help me find a nice, comfortable, non-bulky pair. If possible I would like manufacturer and rough price range... Thanks.

If you are wearing new BDU's, get the 5.11 kneepad inserts...they are great, stay in place, and are only 9 bucks or so.
If you want what military guys are wearing over in the sandbox, go here - http://www.altaindus...s/tactical.html

Use the AltaLok Strap, hands down the best kneepads you are going to find.
Shop around, I think I paid under 20 bucks for mine.

If you are really looking to go cheap, get some Franklin Volleyball kneepads, wear them under some really really baggy pants.
6-9 bucks, Wallyworld.

Take care of the knees man.

I used martial arts pads under my pants. Then I used nothing, and have been so for a year. I do very commonly bruise my knees during play, I am used to it, worst I have gotten is a shredded knee from sliding on rocks. I Have gotten some proto pants recently and use those, and they work quite well.

Go buy McDavid volleyball knee pads. They are super comfortable, very padded, durable, and inexpensive. I would never play without them.

They are around $10-12.

player paintball knee pads have served me well in the past (link in sig)


or you could just go to any local proshop and see what they have in the way of soft knee pads, personally i suggest soft knee pads, in my experience they stay in place better then hard knee pads and hard knee pads tend to slip more in the woods

I use REDZ knee pads. They're tough as hell and last forever. Mine are three years old and still in great shape. They have velcro straps that let you quickly and easily put them on or take them off and they stay in place. Some knee pads have to slide on over your feet so you have to take your boots off which in my opinion is a hassle.

Thanks All for the great info! I am checking out the brands you reccomend. I like the look of the Alta Industries Knee Pads, but am having trouble finding a place to buy the AltaLocks... Thanks Again!
