Knee protection.

silly question but does anyone here use some type of knee protection? I use a brace but more after something to protect the kneecap as I seem to have the crapiest luck and always seem to land on a rock so once again severly swollen knee and a few weeks off hunting  >:(
Just after an alternative to looking like im about to head skateboarding ;D

I use them for work a bit but chatted to a few who wear them a lot at work and said they don't slip down or catch on each other.
Not so comfy wearing shorts tho as the straps do dig in a bit

Go to Farmlands and get the neoprene knee brace. Now use them for long haul slogs on the river trout fishing or at night with Maxtoch.

Sitka hunting pants have a built in knee protection. Very tough and handy on rocky ridges for crawling into something for a shot.

Turu  work wear do Titan pants that have a "pocket" in each knee for taking knee pads.  They come up on the 1-day website occasionally,  but without the pads, for I think $30

Yeah I use knee protection for shooting the nursery. Gravel floor and built up with sheds so if I can get down onto a knee quickly I can shoot better. Definately worth while.
I use a pair that my wife gave me that she used for gardener. Brand is fuller or something like that.
Those ones that army and outdoors sell would probably be quite effective too.

The black woods protector safety had some thermatech ones. Used in volley ball. Are soft and well padded and stretchy so don’t fall down. Only about $25 I wore them working a lot in the winter and even on a days thar hunting to keep the knees warm and protected in the snow.
