Knee/Shin Guards

I have messed up a few wader knees and hurt my knees by kneeling on rocks when I'm fishing small streams. I have been looking for good knee guards for quite some time. I finally found a great pair and they cover the shin too. They are made by Rothco and sold through Blue Quill for $35. I wore them this past weekend on a small brookie stream. Had to hike down a fairly substanial snowy revene and I did not even know I had them on until a knelt on rocks without feeling anything. They have 4 velcro straps and held very nicely. If you are looking for a set, I highly recommend this set.

Glad to see you finally got a set.

$35 is cheap insurance to protect an expensive pair of waders.

The Parrot video explains that he uses paintball knee and shin guards.

I've a well padded butt, so I usually sit rather then kneel, but I could see hockey shin guards as a solution.
