    Hi I have a quick question.

    Do people wear knee pads under their paintball trousers or are they that padded now there is no need?

    Sorry put in the wrong section my bad.

    I wear ones from Planet, my old GI pants the entire knee ripped out and my knee was shredded after a slide on turf, while not using kneepads.

    I wear them over the top of the pants. I mean, whats the point of spending all that money if no-one knows you're wearing them, right?

    Some people don't use knee pads while wearing paintball pants, but I'd recommend buying a good pair of them if you're planning on taking your slides and dives seriously.

    100% wear paintball knee pads under my pants, The way paintball is going these days the players want light weight everything that means removing the heavier parts of the pants (The Protection)

    Totally agree. Always wear knee pads under trousers. Depends what and where you play you would be amazed how much time you spend on your knees shooting or taking cover.

    I think wearing knee pads is well worth it, even if your trousers have padding especially if you are playing woodsball
