leather knee pad type things? 7 Years, 7 Months ago Karma: 26  
anyone ever come across any leather knee paddy type things for armour?

(i'm not keen on american football-style pads or those things my dad uses when he's doing the decorating, whatever they're called)

you can get greaves and knee pads that the police use in riots but they are hardened plastic with a foam backing. I suppose they could be worn under clothing or covered with leather. Mike used to wear a pair as dark and I think andy uses them aswell as obelisk.

just looked on ebay and there are loads of leather knee pads on there. Some, with the addition of some spiders and bling, would be perfect for you!

i have got inspired from your suggestions, those knee pads on ebay look a bit inflexible for running around in but some bicycle knee pads might do the trick. I'll keep hunting... hopefully find/get something before next thur

What do you want knee pads to accomplish?

If you are looking for something that looks like armour but makes kneeling down on the ground (presumeably for casting. . but whatevever) more comfortable then I would suggest long greaves that buckle around your calves and extend up beyond the knee perhaps with some padding on the inside in front of your knees.

Just kneepads would look a bit weird as I can't think of why you would ever wear armour on your knees but not your legs. . . .

I wear long leather boots (as per leather armour) but they don't quite come up to my knees. Most of the bruises I have seem to land in a couple of places, generally right below the knee! I would just prefer less bruising...

What about Neoprene knee supports underneath your leggings they are surprisingly good at preventing bruising from weapon blows.

or you could go for someting like -

www.barringtonsports.com/products/2/styl...ector_2009/8885/view

Still worn under your leggings would probably still look OK but provide considerably more

Probably cheaper than 2 decent neoprene knee supports as well and not as hot!
