Smile Knee pads?

I killed my knee cap at Snow creek a couple of weeks ago. Wow, that hurt. Still hurts. I need knee pads, but SitzMart doesn't sell them. Falling at Snow creek is like falling on something harder than cement. I said I'd not go back without knee pads. (I think it psyched me from doing very well in the class, infact.) Then, I fell outside in my front yard, while practicing, and the powder is a totally different story.

It's a bit close to when I'm going back to Snow Creek to order any. The shop suggested volleyball knee pads, and then I'll order good knee pads with Kevlar in it, when I am paid. I've seen the good one's, and it's what I want. What do you use in the way of knee pads?

My gf recently made the transition form skiing to snowboarding. She fell on her knees a few times the first day and they looked bad (badly bruised and swollen). She got these and says they're all she needs:

Under Armour Rally Volleyball Knee Pads - Dick's Sporting Goods

She said that they work great... protection is certainly a concern, but kevlar may be more than you need.

Black Diamond TeleKneesis Kneepads

I'm extremely satisfied with my knee pads... they are quite minimal, comfortable and i don't notice them there... i've taken a few hard falls on them and I approve

Get some protec knee pads that skaters use. I'd get the smallest most low profile ones you can find...or just quit falling!

I use Nike articulated soft knee pads that I suppose are intended for volleyball or basketball players. They are comfortable and nonrestrictive. I don't go into the park, so I don't need armor. These are helpful for the occasions on which you deliberately kneel down, or for standard wipeouts.

I have been using these:

Amazon.com: Mizuno T10 Volleyball Kneepads: Sports & Outdoors

It's mostly for padding when you fall on your knees, and works fine for me.

I use my old paintball kneepads, they work better then volleyball or skating knee pads for me at least. and they dont slip or bunch up throughout the day.
