i am going to buy some new knee pads soon. Federal ACL Knee Gaskets have been around for a while, but i think they have been discontinued.


Protec makes some decent-looking pads called the Double Down pads. (knees on the left, the right ones are the elbow pads.)


i can get either pretty cheap. since the DD's are pretty new and so few readers wear pads these days, i am having a hard time finding any info on them.

which should i get?

edit- i went ahead and bought the Protec pads for about $25 last night. thanks.

I think Protec just because they've been doing it for longer and they know what they're doing, not like Federal.

I dont normally run pads like that as such, i used a tubular bandage a piece of tyre wrapped in na bandage and thats it. But by the looks of things, the federals look like it would be more comfortable, but the y both look fine

i'd go with Protec as they've been making protective gear for quite some time and it looks to be really comfy and does its job

The federals do look a lil slimmer. But ya protec has been round for longer in that area, and double D's are always a bonus.

I have the Federal and they are perfect, Ive fall on them a couple and no problems and I like the slimness of them. Also you cant beat the price. Only recommendation on them if you get the Federals is get a size bigger than you think you need
