Comfortable,but ...

  • Familiarity: I returned this product before using it

These pads are very comfortable, and the VPD material offers more protection than the 661 EVO pads I tried also. They were a great deal on sale at $65. I worried though how secure they would be with only one retention strap. I am recovering from knee surgery and want the best protection available. So I returned them and opted for the POC VPD 2.0s (at full price unfortunately). The 2.0s have straps above and below the knee. I've used these a few times already, and have no issues with the pads slipping down.
