Here's my latest effort to protect my knees. I have used lightweight shin pads for a few years to protect my ankles from rubbing pads and kickers and to help fill out the pads for my twiglet legs. I have had a few recent knee problems, one of which turned out to be a fracture from one of those shots that swung and crept behind the pad. So with some neoprene and stretch fabric plus some D3O knee pads from Musto, I have created these. Total cost around £30. I might make some elbow pads using the same D3O pads.
