Review for Redbacks Pocket Knee Pads by Afterglow Plumbing & Heating Ltd
9th November 2020

Bought these on the back of the good reviews on screwfix. To be honest I’ve only worn them once and had to take the mm out. They’ve absolutely battered my knees. I think they’re well over priced and not very comfortable at all

Review for Redbacks Pocket Knee Pads by Pavlou Plumbers
24th April 2020

Very comfortable, life saving and last about a year before the middle splitts. These pads have saved my knees on many occasions due to the design. The fact that they can go in the wash is a great however you will find little bits of black plastic flaking off from the inside of the cloth sleeve, which isn't great.

Most comfortable and sturdy knee pads on the market! A little heavier than most, which I notice if I wear them all week but they're my go to pads when I'm going to be on my knees for long durations. Fit in snickers trousers too.

Super bit of kit and the best insert type of pads you can get! Very comfy even though the honey comb doesn’t seem like it would be... Very breezy and not at all as cumbersome as the size would suggest

Review for Redbacks Pocket Knee Pads by Cliff Plumbing & Heating Limited
30th December 2019

These are by far the best knee pads I’ve used whilst being on the knees all days. The red backs are Very padded and comfortable, and give great protection...but it does have its downsides. They are very heavy, and do not fit in all trouser pockets. I’ve found they fit in snickers the best, and do not fit the slim scruff style trousers. Would recommend if your always working on your knees.

Review for Redbacks Pocket Knee Pads by HeatTech
13th February 2019

Been using these now for around a year. I've never been a massive fan of knee pads that fit into your trousers, I've never found them tonne effective enough. Thus for years I have used knee pads with straps, straps that dig into the back of your knees, straps that snap and end up slipping down your legs. I was reccomended redbacks by users of a trade based Facebook page and have never look back. They offer fantastic protection for your knees, they're water proof helpful for me as I'm a plumber and they fit every pair of trousers I've used them in. The only downside is they are quite heavy, I wear a belt though and after a few hours I didnt even realise they were in! A must have!

Review for Redbacks Pocket Knee Pads by Riverside Electrical & Property Services
15th October 2018

Been using these knee pads for about 3 years now, I will never go back to using the foam knee pads. These are more expensive initially, but when you consider the cheap foam type cost around £5 a pair, and are flattened after a few weeks, and need replacing, the £25-£30 you pay for these is not a bad price. The only downside is they make my trousers even heavier than they already are, with the weight of all the random stuff in my pockets.

Review for Redbacks Pocket Knee Pads by Waterworks Plumbing Solutions
4th January 2018

Build quality 5*- had them nearly 2 years and they are still perfectly fine, even go through the washing machine and tumble dryer. Features 5*- um they are knee pads, they have some innovative feature amount honeycomb design if I remember the packaging, seems to work! Value for money 5*- expensive but nearly 2 years in and still going strong, good enough! Ease of use 3*- now this is the hard part, they are a bit big for the trousers I originally had, which were site ones, so cut them down, however, snickers trousers probably don’t need to cut down, not the easiest things to cut either..... and the main downside, the weight, they pull your trousers down a bit which then mean your knee pads are near your shins and have to be repositioned before kneeling. Not a massive deal though. Would highly recommend.

Offer so much more protection than all the other pads I’ve had, only issue is the weight of them dragging down my trousers lol. Sometimes difficult to get them into the right position before kneeling down.

Been using Snickers floorlayers for the last 10 years but switched to these after a recommendation from a friend. Little bit awkward to get in your trousers first time round but other than that they are great. No aches and pains after a few weeks of heavy usage, highly recommend

Switched to these from foam knee pads. Support and comfort is outstanding, like kneeling on two little pillows. They are a bit heavy due to being rubber so you feel them a lot more than foam knee pads but far superior protection.

Considering the amount of time I spend with pressure on my knees as a gas man, these really help. The price is irrelevant if they save your knees a little and the cushioning is great. My knees used to throb of a night until I invested in a pair of these......

These are a chunky bit of kit. You will probably need to cut them down to get in your trousers and because they are so big they take some getting used to. But, they are super comfy and worth it.
