Ok this is a great knee pad for the price. I bought mine on ebay and they where very reasonable. When I first open the package I thought that the pads look awesome, however they also looked like they would be a little hot do to the materials they were made from, but this I could not tell till it came to the field test.
When I wore these pads for the first time I was amazed at how well they morphed to my Knee, offering awesome protection and a comfortable fit. Talk about protection!!! I dove all over my friends field and never had any problems with small rocks or anything, and for someone that has not the best knees thats important. The only thing I noticed out of the hold day was that the top band was a little tight, but livable with.
So over all these pads are great for the money if your looking for an all around good knee pad that wont empty you wallet
Before I start, Mantis Kneepads are advertised as "one size fits all," and I wear a size large in sized knee pads
When they came through ups yesterday, I opened the package and they look as it they would serve the purpose. Then after getting back from running errands, i decided to try them on, they fit like a SIZE SMALL compared to sized knee pads. Before one was 3/4 of the way onto my calves the material ripped down the side and became useless.
I would not recommend these knee pads to anyone
Spend the extra $15-$20 for proto or dye pads and you thank yourself
