When crawling or kneeling in rugged environments, knee pad protection can be a big advantage. However, we all have different leg length configurations so getting the correct knee pad fit is important to prevent discomfort. Our HardRock Crawl Pad features a two-level trimming adjustment method to ensure the knee pads fit correctly. Made from ultralight, hydrophobic EVA (ethylene-vinyl acetate) the knee pads weigh only 54gr / 1.9oz each. They are also fully compatible with TUSX pants featuring the HardRock Vent Pouch™ technology.
Fitting pads correctly
Firstly, before making any adjustments you will need to check how the knee pads fit when kneeling. Insert the knee pad into the opening of the HardRock Vent Pouch™ when it is unzipped. Once the knee pad is centred inside the pouch, close the zipper all the way by securing the slider into the zipper garage.
Additional trimming if required
With two levels of adjustment, the HardRock Crawl Pad allows for further tailoring. If the knee pad continues to fall short and does not adequately contact the ground, trim at ‘LEVEL 2 TRIM’. Once again test the knee pad fit and check its position when kneeling. This now represents the final level of adjustment.
