You want the best; you got the best. The hottest pads in the world! Redz Comfort Knee/Shin Padz! Three words: Neoprene, Velcro, and Kevlar! Put them together, and you are like a super freak in the dirt. Size small fits juniors and thin adults.
The Redz Knee / Shin Padz is newer, so it should be commonly available, both new and used.
-Only comfortable worn outside of pants.
Well.. I got these used I think they may be the 2002 model. I was too critical on these the first time around... They are nice kneepads. But, I don't think I would pay 60.00 for them. I have found they are alot more comforatable if you waer them outside of pants instead ofinside, but that means they are going to get really dirty. Now that I have them on the outside and adjuysted right I actualy like them. I would reccomend just waering them for a few hours to get used to them, they won't bother you when you play that way.
I would recomend something smaller... You really don't need the shin protection. As others have said before... Thisis somthing you should try on... Unless you find them used like I did (15.00).

Impulse with Tapeworm and CP flame drop, which runs on a 20oz CO2 anti-siphon tank and 12 volt Smoked revy. Not a lot but it does the job.
2) Offers great protection in the case of sliding and taking a knee
4) Putting on and taking off takes less than a few minutes
5) Look good
6) Work well with both shorts and pants
1) Has the occasion to come loose after a slide due to wear of velcroe(but that's overtime)
2) Make sure you get the right size
3) Has to be handwashed and hand-dried or will shink or possibly damage neoprene
These things are great and have offered superb protection for my knees and shins. If you put them on correctly, you don't even notice that they're on. Once again, make sure you get the correct size for your legs. Mine were a gift and the person who bought them purchased a size too small but they still work perfectly. If you think that pants don't offer enough protection go with these things. After using them for a while the velcroe begins to wear and cleaning sometimes can become a hassel, but overall another triumph by Redz.
P.S. If any Redz representative is reading this, please contact me and feel free to offer free stuff.
These are the best knee pads I have found. I had some softball knee pads but they kept working there way down and turning. Strap the redz on and the shin protection keeps them from sliding down. I wear them on the outside of my pants so I don't have any complaints about discomfort to my legs. I got these just before Christmas so I have been using them about 6 months and don't have any regrets. (These are not the 2002 model, but the previous model)
The price is high when compaired to non-paintball knee pads. Oh well, I guess you have to pay a premium for the best.
Love 'em. If they were less expensive they would rate a ten. But without regard to cost they are the best I have found.
The padding is very thick, especially on the knees. Full protection over the knee and shin area. Durable material. Aesthetically pleasing.
I am 6'0, 180 pounds and the straps are very uncomfortable without pants, and just too small with pants. The pads are stiff and it is difficult to kneel down without the staps digging into your leg and the top knee pad area sticking out away from your leg. The stiffness severly limits movement for running.
Knee/Shin guards seem like a good idea, but if you are not a small person then the pads will do more harm then good in limiting your movement and hurting your legs. These type of pads are also very individualistic comfort wise, so I don't reccomend ordering them on the internet; try on different types of pads at sport stores to see what works if you really need leg protection.
Renegade and RASE Knee/Shin pads. Both would rotate to one side, leaving my kneecap exposed. The Redz are much more secure.
Matrix (LED w/ pushbutton) with AA Messiah @ sub-200psi input. AA Armageddon 68ci 4500psi, no drop forward, set at 800psi.
Palmer Cocker same, except AA Vigilante @ 325psi input.
Lapco barrels (AS or BS depending on paint size). 12V Revies.
I started with the old Trace softball pads, then used the Renegade and the RASE versions. The Redz pads are the first pads that I've used that won't rotate around away from the front of your kneecap, leaving it exposed. I've finally found pads that work for me.
Great protection - for me, I find it stays up on my kneecap no problem, and the shin protection is superb.
The kevlar front is tough and doesn't abrade, but it's still not as hard as a rigid knee cup or shin guard so you'll (maybe) get a few more bounces than you would've with a rigid surface.
The velcro straps are really convenient as they allow me to remove pads on a hot day without having to remove my shoes.
The only negative thing I can think of is that the velcro straps are quite sharp and can cut into your skin behind your knees. If you wear these pads on the outside of your pants its no problem. Since I wear them on the inside, next to my skin, it can be (literally) a pain. The two straps behind the knee can leave sharp cuts.
I've found an easy solution - I use a Tensor knee wrap to protect myself from the straps. I'm not thrilled about having to put another layer on, but it's not really a big deal and I'd rather not have cuts.
The best knee/shin pads I've ever used. Great protection, doesn't rotate away from the kneecap, doesn't slip.
The only downside is if you wear these pads under your pants and next to your skin, the two straps behind the knee area may cut into your skin. You may need to wear a wrap around your knees to prevent being cut. One point off for this.
Classic AGD RT, DYE SS 10 inch, Benchmark foregrip, Benchmark 2x trigger frame, Shocktech Drop, Ricochet, Clear Warp Feed, Air America MeLee 47 3k
Looks cool, provides good protection, and doesnt slip all that much. Comfortable.d I got mine for $45, so I am pleased with the price. Tough as nails. Washes off easily. Will get an occasional bounce. Nothing worse than getting shot out by a ball that bounced along the ground, and got you by luck.
maybe not enough knee protection. They tend to stay put, yet, they don't stick to your knee, so when you kneel, your knee tends to come out of it's protection, but you don't really notice it.
Worth what I spent on them, but as for $65, I dont know. Make sure you get the size that fits you, and you shouldnt have any problems.
