Weaknesses: Runs small
Review: I've played and reffed with these for a few weeks now and I can say that they are pretty good pads. Very thick, cushy padding made of memory and EVA foam that keeps its cushion after hours of diving, sliding and kneeling. These pads also don't move. They have two velcro straps on the top and two straps on the bottom of each pad.

The big downside of these pads is that they are very small. I am very skinny (thigh measures 14.5 inches just above the knee) and the medium size pads are very tight on me. The pads are actually tight enough that I don't have to tighten the velcro straps at all. This is probably because of the small size, but the cutout in the back of the knee pinched my skin a bit when I was kneeling. Other knee pads irritated my skin much more however, so I'm not complaining much.

Also, JT advertises them as knee or elbow pads, but you would be stupid to use these as elbow pads. They are definitely made to be knee pads. If you want good elbow pads, go buy some eclipse or empire.
Conclusion: Overall, great pads. Especially for the $15 i paid for them. Just make sure you get a size or two larger than what you think you need. These get a 9 from me, not quite perfect, but pretty darn good.
