    at first i was surprised how big the pair looked, but at the end it fits quite well, albeit somewhat loose, the padding feels great and it does protect greatly against blows and hits. I still feel the hits and they stink a little, but its better than just a pair of pants. They are surprisingly heavy, but i dont mind at all as they are not exceedingly so and the weight is mitigated by strapping them with the belt. They feel great and provide good protection, the only problem i find is the leather, it smells really strong and some times the smell can be a bit too much, but its something that has to fade with time and since the protection is so great i do find myself please with the gear, no smell and with smell, i would buy this again if need be.

    Very nice and high quality upper leg pads with reinforced leather knees. They also have a very authentic look to them.

    The pictures just don’t do these pads justice! That is a cupped kneepad you are seeing, not just a flat disc. I got these for the Elias legplates and with the Farald Padded Greaves, they make the legplates super comfortable. The cupped knee pads lined up with the plated ones very nicely. I recommend you get some athentic looking pants with belt loops and then get a locking slide belt to secure these since nobody can see the belt under a gambeson anyway. I tripped on my porch and landed on my knees with these leg pads plus the Elias greaves and Farald pads, and while I wasn’t happy, I eventually got back up just fine.

    The knee pads are solid as hell! Straight out of the box I was astonished at how well made they were!

    Tough as stone! Provides great protection against percussive strikes.
