Alta Industries AltaPRO S Knee Pads have flexible plastic cap secured with six brass grommets, padded with compression recovery foam and lined with soft brushed tricot. These tactical protective pads also feature a strong Cordura Nylon cover and double strapping with the innovative AltaLOK Easy On/Off Fastening System and original Alta Strapkeeper System to secure excess straps from flapping. Alta Industries AltaPRO S Knee Pads fit most and offer firm support, outstanding traction and skid resistance, and excellent comfort.

The best tactical pad I would recommend is the NoCry Professional knee pads. Built to withstand heavy use, the kneepads come with heavy-duty foam padding and a comfortable gel cushion, strong double straps and adjustable easy fix clips. I find it important that a good knee pad does not slide down when in use as it can become a distraction, however, the straps are wide and made out of heavy-duty materials. I love the idea of a durable knee pad that lasts, and most importantly it is easy to clean. With the NoCry knee pads I simply clean with a washcloth and lukewarm water.

As a woodworker, my work puts a lot of strain on my knees, which is why I often go for tactical knee pads such as the Thunderbolt Knee Pads to offer much needed protection and comfort. I especially like these ones as they have a thick layer of gel and are ultra comfortable with its high quality materials.

The AltaFLEX Knee Pad is my top recommendation. Made from high-quality fabric and flexible plastic shells (coyote cap). It’s durable to ensure maximum knee protection. These are lightweight, comfortable, and have adjustable straps – so they would fit most sizes.
