G-Form RPT Knee pads.

So, first day out I figured I may as well throw on some armor. I am glad I did, local hill was glare ice. Took about five good jabs to get a ski pole to bust through. Wasn't about to head home so I gave it a go for a few runs. I didn't take any serious shots but I tried a few simulated knee drops just to see how they would fare. They are made up of a foam that gets more rigid the higher the impact and from what I put them through they worked really well and should hold up to anything I could conceive happening in them. The nicest part about them is the construction. It is the soft pads laid over a lycra sleeve. Not bulky and I didn't even know I was wearing them after a few minutes. Quite breathable too, I can see using them for biking and skating come spring & summer.

Second day out, wore them over a thin base layer and still way comfy. Took one real good hit today and didn't feel it at all.Will have to see how they hold up over a full season though.

They look pretty fancy.. Do they allow you to bend your knees and get in an athletic stance comfortably?

Yes, that is probably the best thing about them. You have full freedom of movement..

Really well, no signs of wear. I have over 10 days on them now worn on the skin and over the base layer.

Yeah, it can all be ordered straight from the company site. The site also provides the sizing info as well.

After slamming on Wednesday practicing some failed 360's and spanking my knee cap on the ice.
I'm gonna try these tomorrow, my paintball knee pads. We'll see how they work, I got them for free and might as well use them since I don't paintball much anymore.

I have G-Form knee pads. The stitching and elastic are coming apart on mine and they roll up and slide down all the time. I still feel impact through them, but the pain goes away quicker than it would without knee pads.
