“Fit under jeans well & works....”

The Good: Low profile, durable, fit under jeans well & definitely saved me a time or two.

The Bad: Like to slide a little after a while. Straps stretch easily, had to fold sew them a few times to keep them tight.

Overall Review:

Worth the price but could use a little remodeling to help them stay tight longer....

“good all around pads”

The Good: Lightweight, soft, somewhat breathable in hot weather, easy to carry or strap to a pack, good for trail use

The Bad: Straps and velcro can work loose during a ride, and it takes a LONG time to break these in to your shape. It took me a few weeks of good riding until they really felt confortable. You have to take your shoes off to put them on or remove them.

Overall Review: I ride a lot of XC in rocky NH ( the granite state!) and wnated something to protect me on some really technical rocky stuff after a skiing injury left spme big scars on my knees. After the break in period, they are soft and confortable enough to wear for a few hour XC/trail ride even in the summer. Once in a while the velcro strap will catch on something and come loose, but the pads do stay in place well. If you are willing to invest the time to break them in, you will be rewarded with a light knee pad that could save your keens from some rock damage!

“What it says on the tin”

The Good: Cheaper than a lot of the alternatives, doesn't rub, stays in place, comfortable and doesn't get too hot ....oh yeah, and I've still got knees after crashing

The Bad: Takes a while to get them bedded in and if you don't wear them for a bit (weeks) they take a little bit of time to soften up, I personally find that velcro strip for converting them into knee and shin guards annoying as it catches on clothes (depending on the material), the main biggie is no side protection, but thats kinda obvious from picking them up

Overall Review: Not as good as some of the other things on the market but its not trying to be, if this is what you want then go for it as it doesn't seem to have any hang ups
