For: Hatch Centurion Knee Pads (Black)Product Information:
I ordered these kneepads and on first impression the overall construction looks and feels really solid. The solid material on the outside has a decent thickness for good protection and is SLIGHTLY (and by "slight" I mean it) pliable which is GOOD because being able to maneuver to and from cover while not sacrificing comfort and mobility is a HUGE PLUS. I've found in my experience with these kneepads that while moving you can feel the kneepads on but in stress situations they can feel lighter to you and you may forget you have kneepads on! These will actively make you want to take a knee for better position to take better shots. In terms of size (I'm about 5" 7" and big-boned fat LOL) I find these can be better for slightly bigger guys, but the velcro can be adjusted to fit just about anyone. Now being bigger weight-wise, this plays a huge role as it greatly supports your knees when you take one without injuring yourself. As if I wasn't selling this product enough, what really makes this product shine is the quick detach system when you want to pack up quickly without the fuss. The detach system is very solid and there's no wobble or play once you lock the system into your legs. I actually prefer these over hatch's XTAK kneepads. Now remember, these are kneepads after all, so you'll want to adjust them to your knees in a snug fashion otherwise you'll notice them riding downward if you're running fast, but that's expected from most kneepads anyway. However in my movement and if adjusted properly, you'll not see too much of a variance of when you first set the pads to your knees at the beginning and at the end of each game.
-Solid construction and SLIGHTLY pliable hard surface makes it easy to lean in and out of position to take your shots.
-WEIGHT-WISE nice and light.
-Quick detach system is surprisingly effective for transport and gets you in the game a lot faster when prepping.
-Soft and dense material in the inside knee gives great support.
-Ideal for bigger frame guys (I have thunder thighs and these still fit great!)
-They're Kneepads! Remember to adjust accordingly! Should be snug but not to the point of cutting circulation!
-If your body type's a bit smaller in size, you may have to adjust with the velcro to tighten to get that proper grip on your body but should fit most guys.
