I'm gonna order some knee pads tonight, I've seen a few on ebay but I'm not 100% they're gonna be comfy,

 

Can someone recommend some decent comfy ones? Preferebly multicam haha

 

Thanks.

Knee pads are always uncomfortable. If you can get trousers with them built in, that will be much more comfortable

I too looked into knee pads, thinking they would majestically give me the ability to do slides and dives. Turns out it just mildly decreases your running speed while constantly sliding out of place.

I have Bijan ones & they are the only ones I have found that stay still (well they do for me anyway)

I use a cheap pair I picked up for £10 from Halfords for mountain biking. Had no issues with them or the elbow pads that came with them.

I'd have to disagree! never had any discomfort with my Viper knee pads.. they don't always stay in place but that's another matter

I've got blackhawks and they are pretty comfortable aside from the left one which is constantly on the wander,!

I use blackhawk ones as well, velcro isn't long enough but other then that they're reasonable enough. They only fall down every now and then, usually because I've not done them up very well.

i use webtex DPM knee pads. the velcro straps are pretty good and adjustable. i wouldnt go to a game without them although they did need some attention a couple of times throughout the day but i like to roll around a bit

what kind of attention? pulling them up/adjusting them?

they dont slide up or down but they do twist round a little bit. the biggest problem i had was the knee support i was wearing underneath. that was eating the back of my knee because of all the kneeling i was doing. i get on fine with the webtex though

didnt read the rest of the thread as I just wanted to say

 

Go to the builders merchant and get pads that a slater / roofer uses..

 

im not a slater or roofer BUt I used to be a builder and im sure they are much more durable and used 10000 times more than any airsoft pads so they will ultimately be better (and more expensive)
