The magic of KNEE PADDED PANTS
"A great deal of my time working is spent on my knees (no crude comments, please), whether it be indoors or outdoors. I got a set of kneepads for the first time a few years ago, as I noticed them gaining popularity among workmen of all trades. The first pair I got were comfortabe, and had hard plastic knee caps. Well, the first time I squatted down on a smooth troweled concrete floor, my one knee slipped out sideways due to the hard plastic cap. Picture doing a "split" on your knees. I pulled a groin muscle or something, because I sure was sore for a while. After that instance, I threw the pads out with the hard plastic caps and got a $3 pair that are just all foam rubber with a velcro strap. That's pretty much what I've been using ever since, but I've gone through several pairs. They don't last too long (maybe a year), but they are only 3 to 5 bucks a pair. I'm about due to shop for a new pair, and I thought I'd ask for recommendations. It seems like there must be a pair by now that are considered "the best" by a lot of people. They need to be non marking, for kneeling on finished flooring from time to time. Help me out. " ___________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________" Well, one of the consequencial side benefits of wearing knee pads for kneeling tasks is that the knees of your trousers don't wear out. The knee pads take all the wear and tear. I really like that unexpected benefit. " ____________________________________________________________" I also need a new pair, but my problem is different. I HATE the friction burn that most knee pads give you behind the back of the knee. If I use knee pads for an entire day, the next two days I will have this ‘sun burn’ feeling on the back of my legs. My cousin is a bricklayer and has a very nice set of leather knee pads, but when I went to go buy them I was told they don’t make them anymore. So I also would like to hear what you guys consider a good knee pad.
