Hey Dieter..I think MMO sells the 5.10 knee pad. The Hen House at Alpha Farms also sells the Sender kneepads (they're awesome..small company from Hueco). I cut up an old wetsuit and made some kneepads from that. They work well but aren't as good as the real ones.

Hi
Thanks for the info, those sender pads are awesome, trying to get hold of the hen house, to see if they still sell. Thanks.
Been trying to make my own from various knee gaurds, with rubber flooring stitched to it. Some work ok, but nothing like a proper one..

We took the inner tube of a car tire and cut it to the correct shape. You get several sets out of one tube and its much cheaper than buying one. I'll concede you now have to wear a ''Continental'' knee pad rather than a 5.10, but your knees won't bleed. It also gets really sweaty under one, but i'm sure its the same in any other
