    Yeah they need improvement. The padding and concept of the protective material is great but the fit and positioning needs work.

    Dewalt £7.99 inserts for me at the moment no complaints the only trouble I find with all knee pads is you have to put them in the right place as you kneel down

    there not the cheapest, but i have'nt found anything better.
    the redbacks shown above are also good kneepads, but i found them a shade on the heavy side.
    I had these and really liked them but a wayward blow lamp put paid to them melted small hole so polystyrene balls leaked

    Red backs okay but too heavy & bulky

    Snickers carpet layer ones comfy but too bulky & cause the trousers to cut into the back of your legs!

    I don't wear knee pads anymore & Use kneeling mats where I'm working!
    We cannot help non gsr's with technical gas or boiler questions. If we do Croppie gets upset and gives us chinese burns......

    Got redbacks, find them good, but you really need top loading knne pouches on your trousers to use them
