Patented ''Keyhole'' design on side for superior flexibility and open back reduces bulkiness behind the knee. The most comfortable knee pad you will ever wear.

I only wished they were more ergonomically designed as they don't really form around the shape of your knee (or elbow). It's like having a slab of foam attached to your leg. When you bend your knee the guard just folds open outwards at its sides, which i.m.o. takes away from its comfort.
I attached a photo to illustrate.
I agree with several reviewers who have recommended getting a size or two larger than you think necessary. I found several sites with size charts for this item, measured circumferences above and below my knee, and ordered accordingly. Had to return for a larger size. (for reference, I am female, 130#, and ended up with size medium)
I am very happy with the product. I actually use them for gardening/landscaping or any other task requiring time on my knees. Every kneepad I have bought that is actually designed for these purposes ends up sliding down to my ankles and being hoisted back up to the knee every time I got ready to kneel again. These stay put. Wonderful! I have also worn them for hours at a time (as in 6 to 8) with no binding or chafing. In fact, I forget they are there.
I have read criticisms that these are not durable. I, of course, am not using them for their designed purpose, but am wearing them under jeans, which may help with longevity. No data yet, just a suggestion.
My second use of these pads was on an 8-hour trip to a cave with an infamous 1200-foot crawl. These knee pads made it through (both ways) without a single rip or failure of any kind. More importantly, they protected my knees from injury. If they can handle that trip, they can probably handle just about anything.
I also like the cutout back design, it really allows you to get full knee bend without pressure behind the knee.

Weeks later had to buy a different pair that is not to bulky like this one. I used these twice.
