The Impact pad with hexpad technology is integrated into a new low profile, form-fitting knee or elbow pad. Perfect for all levels of impact absorption.
The #6440 HexForce Knee or Elbow Pad is one of McDavid's most popular and versatile pads, featuring proprietary HexPad material in a versatile, lightweight, protective pad for the knee or elbow. Individual hex shaped pads conform to and move with your body for solid comfort and continuous protection, while compression fabric holds the pad firmly in place and keeps muscles warm to prevent pulls and fatigue. HydraVent hDc Moisture Management Technology keeps you cool and dry, as well. HydraVent hDc (1) This material results from a patented process that permanently bonds hydrophilic (water-attracting) molecules to mid-weight and heavyweight synthetic fiber surfaces, ensuring HydraVent hDc remains intact even after numerous washings. (2) As you exercise, your body produces perspiration to cool itself and this perspiration condenses on your skin and builds up heat and discomfort. (3) Moisture is pulled away from the skin by the wicking ability of HydraVent hDc, so your skin remains cooler and drier, and your body's temperature management system can do its job more effectively. (4) Once the fabric absorbs the moisture, it is spread rapidly across a broader surface area for faster evaporation, and this evaporation draws heat out of the body. (5) Finally, when moisture is one molecule thick, HydraVent hDc starts its drying process, allowing for a consistent and rapid moisture transport ability over a long use time. Hexpad Hexpad Technology is a patented padding system that permanently bonds dozens of individual athletic pads into fabrics. Because the pads are individually applied, they move with and conform to the body for continuous protection that isn't bulky or restricting. The material is machine washable. Protection Levels McDavid offers a range of sports medicine products based on protection and support levels. Each level provides soft tissue support through compression, and may promote healing through therapeutic heat.

McDavid, operating out of a basement in Bellwood, Illinois, developed what became the first widely used lateral protective knee brace in football. Today, the company manufactures more than 400 products for athletes and active people of all ages, designed to help prevent injury while enhancing performance. The company is the most recommended brand of braces among sports medical professionals, and an industry leader in sports medical products and technical performance athletic wear.

Although I'm writing this review from the perspective of a soccer player, I think my critique would be helpful for other applications: home improvement projects, automotive repair, construction, hunting, snowboarding, volleyball, among others. As my team's soccer goalie, I've cycled through several different brands of knee pads to protect myself from hard dives to the turf. What I've discovered is that each brand of knee pad presents varying trade-offs between three factors:
1) PROTECTION. If your primary concern is protecting your knees from impacts with the field, turf or hardwood playing surfaces, then you'll want to select a bulkier knee pad -- either one with very thick padding, or perhaps even one with a hard outer shell. Those types of bulky knee pads do a great job with protection, but the trade-off is that their bulk tends to affect your freedom of movement, your overall mobility.
2) COVERAGE AREA. Sometimes the impact will occur right above or below or to the side of your knee cap. Ideally, you want the knee pad to provide at least some degree of protection to the immediate area surrounding your knee cap.
3) FIT & FEEL. This is a key factor that is often overlooked. The last thing you want to be doing is readjusting the position of your knee pad after every sprint, slide tackle, or impact with the ground. And what if the play is continuing and you don't have time to readjust them? In that instance, with your knee pad askew, it won't even provide you with proper protection and coverage -- which defeats the entire purpose of wearing them!
After several practices and games using the "McDavid Hexpad" knee pads, I've found them to provide the best balance between PROTECTION, COVERAGE AREA and FIT & FEEL. Their design is unlike any I'd previously seen. They utilize several nickel-sized pads that are spaced slightly apart to allow for a better range of motion and flexibility. The rest of the fabric is 80% Nylon and 20% Spandex, which allows for excellent flexibility as well as conformity to your body. They hardly ever slip around even after hard impacts and slide tackles. In sum, these knee pads protect you, while also allowing for freedom of movement and a lot of "give."
[FYI: I am 6'1 & 185 lbs. I purchased the Size X-Large, and they fit me perfectly. Also, I should note that I've used this product exclusively for knee padding; the manufacturer says they're also functional as elbow pads.]
Previously, I'd been using the "Reusch Adult Kevlar Knee Guard," which placed a greater emphasis on protection. And although they protected my knees quite well, they were bulky and limited my movement, range of motion and kicking power. Also, they tended to slip and slide around after nearly every impact, resulting in my having to constantly readjust them mid-game.
To reiterate, I've found that the "McDavid Hexpad" knee pads provide the best balance between PROTECTION, COVERAGE AREA and FIT & FEEL. And all of this at what I believe is an excellent price point.
They make an immediate and marked difference for me. They are an excellent layer of protection - especially at races when the crawling is done on concrete or rocky ground - and a huge knee saver.
I do have to pull them down over my calfs when running, or doing other obstacles - as the mud and gravel / rock gets behind them, and they can irritate if left on too long (for example, if you wear them for a Spartan Beast length event) - but shorter 5k races they were great in place the whole time.
Finally, the stitching on them failed - after several races, and being pulled up and down a whole bunch. I had the L size, and just repurchased them in XL.

Comfort feels ok for my elbows but may return it to fit for my knees :)
I've been playing volleyball in these knee pads for about 2 months now. They have been through a fair amount of diving and contact with the court. I am disappointed to see that the pads have developed holes in the outer layer of fabric. While playing on both hardwood and plastic surfaces, the pads have slid okay but have not held up as I hoped they would. The holes started showing up after only 3-4 uses in matches and practices. I have been able to continue wearing the pads even with the holes and they still serve their purpose. They do better on hardwood but still developed holes. These pads are SUPER comfortable though. After wearing them for about 10-15 minutes, I barely even know they're there. The hex pattern of the pads makes them really flexible and they stay in position fairly well. They compression is comfortable (if fit using the sizing chart) and the pads stay in place pretty well. I would recommend them for someone who is not going to be having a ton of contact with the ground and needs lightweight and comfortable pads. For more durability and strength, I would look elsewhere.
