Snowboarder here. Today, I was clocking 42 mph down a steep blue when a wild Jerry appeared. Had to slam on the brakes with the toeside of my board. Too much speed, too steep. Succeeded in missing the Jerry, but I must have slid 100 yards down the run on my knees and elbows while digging my board into the mountain before I came to a stop.
I felt absolutely no pain, and not even much pressure on my knees. Without these pads, I'm completely certain that at least one of my knees would have been torn up good. Particularly since I have a pre-existing knee injury.
Comfort? Oh yea. Any knee pad will feel more uncomfortable than no knee pad. But I wore these for 6 hours today without removing and I'm fine. 4/5 rating only because the sizing is weird. Make sure to err on buying a larger size if you are skeptical. I'm 5'11", 165lbs. However, I pretty have solid quads and calves for my weight. I got an XL size and they feel good. The 'sleeve' of these pads fit perfectly, but I find I have to tighten down the elastic straps farther than I'd like.
But, great option here. I'm definately very happy to have picked these up. Already battle-tested and approved.
