    Knee Pads?

    I gotta be honest, i'm only 30 and after two days of detecting for hours each time my knees hurt.

    How many of you all wear them?

    I wear them. They also keep your knees dry at times.

    I carry a thick foam rubber cushion to kneel on. I've been thinking about getting a pair of knee pads myself but the ones I've used for home projects in the past have dug into the back of my knee joints and felt uncomfortable. Maybe the answer is to have some sewn into shorts and/or jeans?

    It would be so hard on my knees without them. I use kneelon knee pads and they work great. For me they don't slip down and stay secure, waterproof, comfortable, and the padding hasn't wore out after a lot of use. Before I bought those, I bought a pair that looked similar but about half the price and they were junk

    Kneel down onto a sharp rock or acorn one time and you'll wear them.

    Surplus places carry some that have great coverage, wide straps that don't cut into your legs, and also are not expensive.

    I too am only 30, already had one knee pieced back together and the others not doing so well either. I'm due for a new pair and haven't been wearing any this year. I for sure feel the difference.
