I have used this product several times already this season, as I recently made this purchase for the upcoming snow season. I used to go with a hard plated molded knee pad, but those ended up hurting my knees after a shock, and they were also heavy IMO. So far everything has worked out really well with these. I've tried them on 3 trips already with solid performance. These pads do not feel as restrictive as my last ones and the fabric the holds the pads are moisture wicking, so my legs and back of my knees stay dry. I also like that they have added a silicone lining around the openings of the top and bottom holes. This keeps the knee pad from moving up or down a whole lot. These pads are also much easier to store away when the day or season is over.
