    i was wondering if any one could recommend a quality pair of knee pads, as the company i work for only provide rubbish thin foam ones, so i went and bought some gel ones from b and q but these are still not providing sufficient support.

    suggestions would be great :)

    I was going to recommend gel ones but you don't seem to think they're any good, what exactly don't you like about them?

    i use these snickers kneepads Snickers Non-Slip Knee Pads Pair | Screwfix.com

    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 use the snickers pads in the trousers, nice and comfy and in the right place. Had a pair of Irwin gel ones that were really comfy for 15 minutes and then the fastenings would dig into the back of my knees.

    Two nappies tucked into the knee slot of your work trousers. The tabs don't slip. Plus if you use Pampers and you kneel on a wet floor, no problem.

    If it's good enough for my daughters bum, it's good enough for me.
