    Knee pads: 661 Veggie Wrap or Pro-tec Double Down?

    I'm thinking of getting some low profile knee pads just so that me knee doesn't get scratched up when I fall. Any one have experience with either of these?

    Would you pick the Pro-Tec Double Down or the 661 Veggie Wraps? Do the Double Downs have some kinda adjustable velcro behind it?

    Not sure about knee pad, but I just got the veggie wrap shin pads and they are great. Not bulky at all, feel good, do their job and were cheap.

    I don't need this. I have a huge 3 inch scar down my leg from my ACL surgery.

    Knee pads wont protect you from an ACL injury...

    i have the Protec Double Down pads and i cannot recommend them strongly enough. good padding but they fit under jeans. you can take some of the padding out for increased mobility. they don't breath very well (not at all actually).

    my knees are dead from years of riding without pads. take care of your joints, kids. you don't want to walk like a feeble old man at the age of 27 like i do.

    Knee pads are for people that are scared of getting hurt.
    I used to do cross country and my dad always made me use a helmet,elbow pads,knee pads and ect.
    But now I got into bmx and I dont have to any more,and when I crash I'm like O that hurt and get back up and keep on going.

    Maybe some people want to wear knee pads. Who cares if their "scared" of getting hurt. You go hit an 18 ft. vert ramp or do some X-Games Big Air without knee pads. Scared now?
