Thanks for the heads up. I definitely want to get them for my elbows, just not sure if getting them for the knees will be worth it. The paintball kneepads do an excellent job as it is, just wanted to see if I can get some extra support.

I normally wear it over the top of my thermals if I'm wearing them, plenty of room under by pants. I don't think you'd have much luck wearing it under a pair of knee pads but it's the only type of brace that's going actually do something.
That looks a little beefy...do you wear that while you ride? I am assuming kneepads will not fit around that thing.

I was thinking something more on the neoprene route of support.
