I think it is a good idea especially if you get a little crazy on the trail.

I do wear kneepads every now and then but thats about it. Alot of it depends on the trail I'm on.

I wear it when I feel like it, but for the most part: no, too hot.

You just posted this exact same thing on MTBR.com.

I wear shinpads because my Wellgo plats hate me, and gloves just because I find them more comfortable, but that's it.

I'm surveying both forums, what's wrong with that?

It depends on what I am doing. Resort riding/shuttling or trail riding.
