Rated 5 out of 5 by from "Not only for the one who kneels..." My work, lifting oil/gas platforms on sea around the world, climbing and crawling on my knees on stairs, electrical cable ladders, piping etc... in extreme harsh conditions this item is one of my PPE (personal protection equipment) which I always wear, they fit amazingly good. I highly recommend this protection equipment. Hope one of you engineers can develop a light weight gore-tex offshore jacket with reflecting stripes ,light and flexible due to working movement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great peace of mind After hitting my left knee telemark skiing last season these were a great addition to my skiing gear. They are light, easy to put on and for the most part you don't even notice them while skiing except for the peace of mind you get that you know if you do hit your knee you won't be strung up for the rest of the season. However, they don't breath especially well while skinning. I wear them under my gore pants but over my polar-tec long johns. I do keep them on when I am yo-yoing a shorter slope. But it is noticeable how my knees will be hotter and wet compared to the rest of my legs when I get to the top. If I am skinning a longer approach they stay in my pack until I get to the summit. Therefore if you are going to buy these make sure you have full side zippered pants in order to put them on easily. The few times I have worn them over top my gore outer pants they got full of snow and became bulky and almost unusable. Final though. Good product. Made in Canada. I would recommend them.

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 5 out of 5 by from Always the best With Arc'teryx you can always count on two things. The product is going to be really expensive and really good quality. No exception here. Feel great and unlike any other kneepad on the market. So glad I spent the extra money!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Very comfortable Very comfortable to wear and once put on it stayed in place. It is not bulky like other knee pads.

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.

Is the price of these knee pads (Arcteryx Kneecap) for a pair? Do they provide support for hiking or just protection? Thanks

Asked by: debs
Hiya debs, thanks for your question! The price includes a pair of kneecaps. They are mostly worn for protection but they do have some padding. Hope this helps!

- + Size Guide

Hipbelt Sizing
SIZE Small Medium Large
Men's 27 - 32" 32 - 37" 37 - 42"
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.
