After reading all the bad things that can result from wearing knee braces, I've decided that since I have strong knees that don't need stabilizing, the best route to go is to just wear knee pads, as braces seem to do more harm than good for people that don't need the stability. I have had a pair of EVS knee braces for a while, and am going to get some knee pads now. I have a pair of EVS Pastrana series knee pads, and they seem very comfortable, but they're HOT HOT HOT, especially here in Florida! What is everybody using right now for knee protection? What seems to be the best for comfort/ protection?
