by fromNo more bruised on my knee caps These knee pads were probably designed for telemark skiers in mind. However, I've been using them for ice climbing. There are times when you kick poorly to set your crampons into the ice and instead bang your knee into the ice; and these knee pads have protected my knee caps from those mindless mistakes. Also these knee pads protects your expensive Gore-Tex shell pants from abrasion. Usually, the knee portion of your pants where the second most worn out place. So, these knee pads protects your investments (your knee caps and your pants).

by fromExcellent design Great fit. Stay up all day with minor adjustments. I took a ski off one after the ski shot up from a snow pile - no pain at all. Keep your knees warm, too.

by fromGet the BD knee pads I have had these knee pads for several years, they are durable and comfortable. I telemark ski and I trust my knees to the pads after my buddy hit a hidden stump at alta. I posted a pic of what the stump did to the BD pad. The impact sent him head over heels, but there was no injury to his knee. Unlike other pads, these are very comfortable and stay in place.

by fromGreat Knee Protection for Ice Climbing I purchased these a couple of years ago to protect a knee cap that had been fractured when I did a knee drop on a knife edge rock. I use them for ice climbing and they have more than once saved me from banged up knees. A few of my ice climbing buddies thought they were silly until they bashed a knee.

by fromExactly what I was looking for Leaving for a 2 week ski trip and I bought these to protect my knees from further bruising if I crashed - was recovering from some serious crashes that banged up my knees and prevented me from most activities for a few weeks. I didn't want to risk aggravating the injuries but I also didn't want to give up the ski trip. I like to ski aggressively and these fit so comfortably under ski pants that I completely forget I have them on. I am at the front end of the ski trip and haven't actually 'tested' their ability to protect my knees but am confident they will do the trick.
