Best Knee Pads for Work We selected these kneepads for one reason and one reason only. They work great! These are a high density knee pad, designed to provide maximum protection with the thinnest possible pad. Our knee pad is one solid piece, which means you get solid coverage all the way around the knee. Unlike some waffle-style knee pads where pebbles can poke between the pad, our knee pads provides the same level of protection over the entire surface. It's your knee and it's our job to protect it.
