    Wearing a knee pad on the right and sometimes both when I go to a spot that has broken glass and rusted metal pieces all over. Also wear gloves.

    I've been caving for 50+ years now, and my body has been revolting about the treatment I've given it,
    even after wearing knee pads most of that time....!
    I use tactical knee pads that have a hard-shell rubber cap, over foam, etc-
    type pads, that don't slip on smooth surfaces, does pretty well on ice too...! Anyway, they save the old knee bones...!

    I usually wear them over my pants in the winter but hardly ever in the summer because they pop off my knees often and I'm always having to put them on gin taking away from my treasure hunting.

    I stopped using them because they always ride up or down as I walk. Kneeling on stones hurts, though, so I might get a gardener's kneeling pad.

    Ive never tried kneeling on my wie knee while detecting.... thanks for the tip.

    chub
    talk about swinging the detector....

    all kidding aside, that is why the trades use, and many are required to have them...I found the best are the ones for drywallers are all stretch fit with velcro, and have the hard knee cup built in.

    These are about $40.

    invest in good ones, far better than the downstream/long term costs...

    it is just good practice, and when you get older, you will thank all of us for this advice.

    No pads. Too much movement and uncomfortable. Hmm. I have been thinking of taking a pair of jeans and having pads sewn on in the right places. ╦╦Ç

    I'm 53 and have never worn knee pads. I squat to dig, as opposed to lean forward and put a knee down. If you are thin and limber, give it a try.

    For those of you that say they ride up or down try athletic knee pads. That's what I use and they stay in place. Also no straps to adjust or cut into your leg.

    A few years ago I bought some Dickies painters pants with knee pad pockets. Made my own closed cell foam pads and have loved them ever since. This year for a Cobalt trip I bought some Helly Hensen pants. Heavier fabric, outside pouch pockets for tools and finds, thigh pocket that's just perfect for small plug cutter AND the Garrett carrot. They look dorkey but out here who cares? They work great with the recommended pads. Bang down on the ground with either style and they're right where they need to be, no riding up or down, and nothing binding around my knees. So worthwhile!

    I always wear knee pads. Yes they can kinda "ride" up or down your leg and need periodic adjustment. But.....you'll feel SO much better after a long days hunt having wore them.

    WOW! Are those for real?? It seems those parts never hit the ground. If they do, I'm sure someone will call 911... I hope. ╦╦Ç
