Strengths: Look nice, work well.
Weaknesses: The material wears, strapps too short.
Review: Well being a loyal fan of Flurry I thought I would pop for the pads as my old ones were getting worn and stretched out. When they arrived two things struck me...
1. They look.......kool
2. the straps are too short. Only about 1/2 inch of the Velcro will flap over at the top of my calf. The stitching for the straps is starting to pull from the pads but that is a direct result of the above problem. It was a simple hand stitch to fix, but I think the straps should be longer.

I first wore them at the California Police and Fire Games 2004 and got a lot of positive comments. I have played in 110 degree and 30 degree temps and they stay comfortable and pliable.

The material is wearing at the knees from the rocky dirt at the fields I play at, but unless you make steel knee pads that is to be expected, Clean up is a breeze, I just hang them and hit them with a hose for about a min.

Conclusion: If you dont have built in kneepads in your $100+ paints, or you play woodsball and like cammo, these are the pads to get.
