1. Dont Suck
2. Dont use Velcro to Fasten together
3. Have Gel Inserts on the inside
4. Come in Several Colors or you can slip a cover over them
5. Come in more than 1 size.

Alta Superflex knee pads are by far the tops in my book and I've tried enough pads to know.

Do they use Velcro to secure the Pad?

I second Alta as the way to go. No velcro to secure them, just the triangular shaped buckle. They stay on in mud, they have a hard shell and enough padding to be worthwhile. Also, not too hard to clean.

To be honest, we just can't currently make a high end knee pad that would be price competitive. On top of that, our new Fusion X line of pants don't need any additional knee pads...which even further limits our potential customer base for a high end pad.

you also barely feel the shot if you get hit in the pads, and it bounced 2 out of 10 shots from 10 feet away when i was testing these out.. i can only imagine the bounces it will do when the the other player is further away.

That's what I'm thinking fourthsyde - most knee pads are designed to be worn under the pant, so color/camo pattern has no bearing. Unless you regularly take a dump in the woods, no one will ever see them on you while playing. Furthermore - if you are "deuce-ing" during a game, you have more things to worry about than camo kneepads.

The milsim type that are worn on the outside, like edtoro referenced, are available in every color/camo pattern I can think of. Yeah they can be uncomfortable (which is why i don't use them) but they fill the need for some players.

A better option if one wants knee protection is to get pants w/ integrated pads, like pretty much every paintball specific pant available. The SO Fusion line looks amazing or look into a "combat" style bdu that has the hardshell pad integrated.

Dye knee pads are sweet. Just wear them under your pants and they don't ever really slip off.
