Rated 5 out of 5 by from The king of knee guards! I've been using knee protectors since forever. This product is king of them all. Easy to get on (without acrobatics or getting undressed), stay in place and don't make you sweat when you're doing the miles. They are NOT very 'plush' - so if you're thinking of doing gardening, these are not the ones you need. But as an impact protection shell, they are gold. They also weigh barely anything. For me, they do double duty as a back country knee pad (great when rock scrambling or even setting up camp) and they also double up when I decide to ditch the skis and become a beginner snow boarder again.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Could be better I love Arc'teryx, but these knee caps are worth about half of what they cost. Not much padding, fit is just okay. On the upside, the Kydex is smooth and i would assume they won't catch on your pants if you wear them under your pants. For $20 I would buy them and wear them from time to time. For $58+, I can find a better item to purchase.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great low profile knee pad I am a macro/wildlife photographer who has to frequently kneel down on my knees in rough areas dealing with sharp rocks, sticks, branches, etc. I was searching for low profile knee pads to provide protection but without being bulky. I also wanted something easy to hike in as I am often in remote wilderness areas. These ArcTeryx knees pads are the same knee pads used by various military's throughout the world as part of the tactical uniform.(I actually bought the tan ones from a tactical website as the outdoors sites only had black or were out of stock on the tan.) To make the knee pad more comfortable and less binding behind the knee, the trick is to pass the upper strap under and over the bottom strap. By doing this when you squat the upper strap is lower and not bunching behind the knee.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Low profile Great tough, low profile knee pads, fit well under ski gear and barely noticeable while in use.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Needs more padding, better straps I love my Arc'Tyrex Theta shell and Atom jacket, however, these knee pads were not up to the rigor of hiking and climbing a mountain. The padding is too thin and I couldn't keep the straps properly snug.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from SAVE THE KNEES!!! I'm a photographer in the film and television industry, that often means typical 10-12 hour days (or longer) and in New Orleans, that can often mean it's 90-something degrees with 90-something percent humidity in the middle of mosquito infested, alligator hungry and snake hiding locations! So I am always searching for super comfortable, rugged, and well constructed gear! And as a photographer, I'm often on my knees under the lens of the main camera or I'm off to the side somewhere shooting from another angle and my knees have always taken a beating from rough surfaces from concrete to rocks to rough floor boards and more. I've been searching for the right knee protectors and these Arcteryx Kneecap protectors are excellent! They're easy to strap on and while they don't look like much, they do the job of saving the knees quite well. I've seen other knee protectors from construction supply places, but they're often big and bulky, and when it's hot outside, I'm looking for minimal coverage but something that still protects. These Arcteryx Kneecap protectors are all you need to protect your knees!

Women's 25 - 30" 27 - 32" 30 - 35"

How to Find Your Foot Measurements

Arc'teryx packs are sized either in 3-length options: Short (S), Regular (R) and Tall (T), or in 2-length options: Short/Regular (SR), and Regular/Tall (RT).

Sizing refers to YOUR OWN BACK LENGTH

Measure your Back:

• Measure along the spine between the 7th cervical vertebra and the level of the hip iliac crest
• Compare this measurement to the Sizing Charts
• It is possible to interchange different size shoulder strap and hipbelt components on many Arc'teryx Packs, but this will not change or affect the back-length of the pack.
