Knee/Shin Pad combo?

I have been using G-Form knee pads for 3 seasons now and have had no injuries (just gotten lucky!) but today took a good shot to shin about 1/2 inch below knee pad. Looking at getting G-Form knee/shin combo and wondering if anyone else uses them? Or if anyone likes another company. G-Form is pretty bad ass though.

POC Knee/Shin Pads

Call JB at Altitude Paddleboards in Littleton, he carries them and they are the best for SUP

Hi

I suggest you check out the forcefield line of body armour. My son wears the forcefield padded tights, I use the crash pad brand....like the forcefields better.

I have never been impressed with Poc goggles, but they also do not fit my head. Ski racers love anything with POC on them, so I assume they know how to make some good protective gear.

I ended up getting the 661 Exo Knee/shin. Lower profile and cheaper then G-Form, see how they hold up, but I am sure you pay for what you get. 661 Exo Knee/Shin II Guard

Need to check out the Forcefield gear, has to be tough if its has a line of crouch rocket pads.

I use the G-Form knee/shin guards and love them. I've taken many hits and they do a great job of keeping my legs from being shredded.
