    Let's talk knee pads

    Yep, knee pads. What brand do YOU use, why do you like 'em, and where did you get 'em.

    Paid 9.99 for mine at farm and fleet. Bucket boss brand. All foam, well built, priced well, good velcro. What's not to love?

Hence all my jeans have one knee wore out. Just not for me

    Just got these about 3 weeks ago. There a little pricey, but there as advertised. Sometimes forget I'm wearing them. And they stay put!Name:  51uiJhuBR1L._SY90_.jpg

    i get mine at home depot, 9.99 nylon with foam knee padding, light weight, wide velcro strap and they provide some water resist in wet grass, the hard shell ones are uncomfortable on long hunts these are comfortable, cheap and so far have lasted 2 years....

    I don't even know what brand mine are. I bought them at a local True-Value hardware. Hard plastic shell with padding and elastic bands that snap on and off.

    I have a garden kneeling pad that I have tied to my digging belt. I have a carabiner on the belt that I clip the pad to when I'm walking. It does a good job without binding on my legs or constantly slipping down.

    I use KneelOn knee pads from wildflower seed & tool co. They are a foam pad, light, waterproof, comfortable, and high quality. I can go for hours without having to adjust them. There is another brand that's similar named Cate's. I had originally bought a pair that looked like these but were cheap and they did not last long at all until the foam wore down and velcro did not stick well.

    Wow....Lot's of great replies! Thanks guys. Nothing I hate worse than kneeling down on a rock or stick.
    I'll be checking out some of these models soon. The "slipping-down" thing is my biggest bugbear.

    As Digger posted, you can't go wrong with military knee pads. Definitely worth the money because they are made for soldiers that are on the battlefield who have to take a quick elbow or knee to the ground!
    If I was President; I would take away welfare! I wouldn't make any bargains with foreign countries! I wouldn't take #@*& from any country! I would close the borders! I would get rid of taxes! I would make EVERYONE own at least 5 guns! I would ENFORCE Finders Keepers Law !!!!!!!!

    I use my knees and don't worry about the aggravation of knee pads.. I go as light as possible. If I can't carry it in my pocket then it don't go..

    I see guys with harnesses, pouches, knee pads and ammo belts for accessories etc and can barely walk with all the crap. I go out everyday and drop to my knees anywhere from 30 - 50 times everyday. When finished I walk back to my truck, brush off my knees and head home.


    I don't detect for the stuff I find, I detect for the stuff I haven't found.

    If I didn't find it I hope you did.

    I’m a girl therefore I have skinny little knees. Mine I got at Home Depot,they were on the smaller side,were cheap as dirt( pun intended) and they are padded and Velcro in the back.
