Alta was awesome for a few months then they ripped and became a failure. Very sad... I loved these pads!

These knee pads are excellent! I use them for work, for shooting, and for anything that requires my bony knees to touch the hard ground. They are super adjustable and don't slip down or up. They don't slip even if you are performing fast vigorous maneuvers. Here's a photo of how they look after about two months of painting, shooting, and hardcore 10-12 hour use. Don't buy Arc Teryx, don't buy the other expensive brands.... I've bought them all and Alta makes the real goods.
UPDATE!!!: So, bad news about my fave knee pads. I owned these from July to October 6th when I'm writing this update, and they just ripped in the same spot on the inside of the pads on both pads. I will show the pictures. This is very depressing since I can't return them, however I am going to contact Alta and see if they think this is a defect. For the amount of time I used these pads which has been maybe a hundred hours or a little more of kneeling while working and painting and also doing some shooting training, I am surprised that they are ripping in this area. In any area at all it surprises me. So that's the update, maybe I'll a different model that doesn't have the "fast" snaps, though that's one of my favorite features of these pads.... disappointing. Seems you can't use anything very hard without it ripping or degrading nowadays.
