Review: I bought these after I tried sliding one day without knee pads. I got the smallest pad at the pro shop, an M/L.

I played almost ever weekend for the past three summer months. I've always worn them under Proto pants or Dye C6 pants. The padding is excellent. I did not feel the ground at all when on my knees, and felt totally protected when sliding.

For the first 1-2 months, they were really tight. In warm weather, my knees felt very hot.

After 2 months, they felt great, but eventually one knee pad would keep working it's way down, and I had to keep pulling it up.

At the 3 month mark, I slid on my knees into a bunker, and they both came off my knees.
Conclusion: I don't recommend this product for someone who plays aggressive airball and plays as frequently as once a week in warm weather.

However, for rec or woods ballers, the padding on this product was awesome. My knees felt totally protected and helped me focus more on my game than on the pain of kneeling on rocks or hard dirt.

i have a tip, just use some medical tape, or the sports tape you use to wrap up an ankle or something, so you can continue the use them if you haven't gotten new ones already
