shin guards

So im wanting to get some knee/shin pads. I've only played a few games and just started sliding into cover. Really bruised my self up. Any advice on pads that wont break my bank?

I used knee/shin guards for 2 years and they were okay gets extremely hot and hard to take off at the end of the day I would just prefer you to get knee pads some dye or planet eclipse ones. They work and you won't bang your knees up if diving. I usually play snake and knee pads have been fine for the last few seasons.

Knee pads are an absolute necessity, I don't think shin guards/pads are necessary at all.

Empire makes a very solid set, planet eclipse always makes quality products.

Ultimately if you want something paintball specific you will pay $$$.

You can certainly make due with homedepot knee pads for a while though if you want to hold off.

I play in the woods and paintball pants with built in knee to shin pads do everything I need for shin protection.

For knee pads, PE makes and great set, really cushioned. The issue I have with them are the Velcro straps. Like most paintball knee pads, if they are not tightened perfectly they will rub you raw.

Volleyball knee pads are about as cushioned as paintball ones, and on the plus side are spandex and 1/2 the price.

Compression with individual hex pads (McDavid) are extremely comfortable but do not have as much cushion as the two above. You will be a little sore at the end of the day with your play style.
