We carry a wide variety of paintball knee pads from the very basic knee only all the way to the full shin and knee pad combination. A good set of knee pads help prevent a range of injuries as well as allow you to play better.

Paintball knee pads are designed to be worn under your paintball pants, offering a full range of motion so you are not slowed down. A good set of Paintball Knee Pads help you get to work or school on Monday morning!
The first choice you need to make is whether you want Knee Only or Knee/ Shin Pads. The models that cover just above to just below the knee are by far the better seller of the two. These pads are lighter weight, do not trap as much heat, and usually more comfortable. Fast moving athletic-type players who need to make fast dashes and sprints tend to use these pads more. Knee/ Shin pads protect from just above the knee down to the bottom of the shin, allowing enough room for high top shoes or boots. While a little more restrictive, these pads are very popular for promoting bounce on the lower legs as well as shielding your legs on runs, crawls and dives through very rough terrain. Knee/ Shin models are also popular to wear with shorts when playing in the summer heat.
