if your not on to much of a budget then its got to be Brute Neoprene as they are designer thin but padded enough for any work out.
PM me some more info ( leg size etc ) and I will sort you a price out mate
I find two pampers simply dry work better.

never heard of the Brute stuff? is it wrestling gear?
they come very highly reccomended
quite expensive and hard to find in the uk though

nice one mate! I'll either get these or the Fumetsu ones

Now i dont think ive hurt/damaged my knee internally as i can still do everything i could before the this apart from kneeling pressure.
Anyway, just wondering if anyone had used the Brute ones? Or has anyone tried the Throw Down ones that rrp is around 50 quid? Or do neither of these offer as much protection as the Fumetsu ones and its just down to breaking down the foam over a period of a year and a half that they dont offer the same protection?
Thanks in advance
First things first ~ go see the doctor if its always happening as you might off done damage to your knee.
if its ok and its just lack of padding then do what i do
1. Thai Cream the knee area
2. 16 foot surgical style bandage ( about 6" width )
3. knee support with double velcro strapes to stop it moving ( one that has padding around the knee area ) ~ Blitz Sports do a great one
I had Major Knee Surgery in 2009 and my knee is still not 100% but i do find that doing this helps and allows me to train ( not heavy - but i am an old fart now as well )
all knee pads are great when new but do break down very quickly, so a good bandage and something to cover it is cheaper and does a better job
Thanks for that, its only happened twice so far and a year and a half since some minor surgery ive had (1/3 of the miniscus tissue removed to right knee, so think its just down to losing some of this natural padding).
I hear what your saying over the route you described as is no doubt a better route than the slip on padding, however, i wouldnt have enough time to be able to do this all the time hence the question over the 'slip-ons' - yeah i know, another one being offered probably sound advice that being ignored
Another one is the new Venum ones as they look like they offer more padding but has anyone used them or the other ones ive mentioned?
