Thank you for your feedback.
I play several basketball games a week and have been using this for the last 3 weeks.
Expensive to do this however; this the only way we know how to do it and these are the ones she likes the best?
Did not last as long as expected, but he definitely used the product and it was washed several times each week.

Sizing:
Much like the elbow/knee pad combo offered by McDavid, this is sized somewhat small. I think the critical part is measurement (see below).

It is not actually the overall fit of the pad that is tight, but the thin band at the top and bottom of the pad sleeve. I made the mistake of measuring too low on my quad, and the result was a somewhat tight fit. The overall length of these pads sized large (sleeve included) is 16 inches. So make sure to measure 8 inches from the center of your knee to ensure you get the right size.

Product:
I am a huge fan of these compression sleve/hex pad combos. I can move around and sweat without the chaffing caused by traditional elastic or even neoprene pads. I feel the hex gives a greater range of motion as well. The padding is quite good, with a good bit of "squish" to it. The pad itself is quite large, and great for wraparound knee protection. I feel that there is plenty of padding top to bottom/left to right. I previously bought the Nike Combat Pro slider shorts (with integrated hex), but was disappointed with the thickness and coverage of the padding. These are a much better solution for impact protection.

I can move around quite a lot and these pads stay in place. The only movement comes from it being sized a bit small, and the top part of the sleeve has a tendency to slide down a bit on my quad. I think you can comfortably order a "size up" and not worry about it going anywhere - the compression sleeve has plenty of stretch to it when putting it on, so I think there is plenty of leeway.

Durability:
I am not sure what the durability of the pads would be if exposed to dirt or any abrasion. My pads are purely for impact, and are underneath a layer of clothing. They have survived me and the washing machine!

When you get these they come two in one box so don't over order. Other then that they are an excellent product!

I play several basketball games a week and have been using this for the last 3 weeks. I've landed on them many times while diving for the loose ball.

Although advertised as compression sleeves, they don't do that part very well. If you're looking for good compression leg sleeves check out Recofit or Zoot.

BUT.

They do a FANTASTIC job as protective gear. I wear these a little higher up than the picture on the box allowing protection for both my knees and the upper half of my shins and McDavid's Hexpad tech absorbs impact like nothing else. The only possible downside is its durability when sliding on them, my falls have been mostly straight down right into the padding and I barely feel a thing however if I slid on my knees rather than fall straight down the part of the fabric that makes contact with the floor looks like it will tear.

It's true to size so just follow the sizing chart (there is one on the McDavid website).

My son is 10 and loves this for basketball. He has much more confidence and is more aggressive on defense knowing he takes a fall, it won't hurt his knees

I had purchased three sets of McDavid knee pads, white, black and orange. I only received one orange (from a different seller) and I have attached a photo of one of the black knee pads after my son wore them about 4 or 5 times playing basketball indoors, I would think they would have held up better. And he received a floor burn just above his knee.

If you have never tried on this brand, you may want to try them on in stores before purchasing. They run a little funky for size. My 12 year old, who is wearing between a youth XL and adult small in clothes wears an adult medium in these. He has super skinny legs too!

We purchased the MdDavid HexForce HexPad Extended Leg sleeves for our son (age 12) to wear during basketball games. The padding and fit are good but the durability is TERRIBLE. During his first game he dove for a ball and tore a hole in the knee. During the second game he tore a hole in the other pad. For the price I would have expected them to last more than a weekend. The fabric covering the padded area is very thin.
