Hey there, I recently was wondering where I could get some nice pads for my knees to make sure I don't bust my knees in a game. I know my cousin forgot them one day he went with me. Made a bad slide and realized once he was home that his shin was busted open. I was taking a look at the Nike Advantage Knee / Shin Sliding Pads and Im not sure if they are good enough. I want to be able to get these items locally so no paintball intended pads please.

Go to your local sporting goods store and get some volleyball knee pads. I have a pair of Bike knee pads and am quite happy with them.

They were $12

Going to play with some friends again soon, just ordered stuff from ansgear and don't want my mother to go through the process again ("The hole your buying stuff just so that you can go around with guns and shoot people!" Thing.) Also paintball is generally illegal where I live, markers must have barrels taken out, hoppers out, and tanks out when in Yonkers. (So no Pro Shops around)

Oh if only politics weren't disallowed on this forum...
Anyway, volleyball kneepads are the way to go. Hell, I often find myself using the $5 pair I got at Walmart over the paintball PE pads I own. The only issue I have with the volleyball pads is that, since they're only supported with spandex, they'll occasionally slip down during more extreme slides and dives. Other than that, they work wonderfully.

If you have a sports authority close by, check there. I got the valken knee/shin combos for about $8 or $10.

Sports Authority carries Valken pads?! I might actually have to check there today to see if mine carries them and what the prices are.

Got some cheap volleyball kneepads, they slide down a little but the experience was amazing, I could slide about 4 feet with ease. Thanks for all the information.
