What to wear with a hoodie?Most tradespeople will spend a lot or a little time working on their knees. From kneeling to fit floors, bending and standing several times a day, you need to be comfortable in your workwear and also have the kneepad protection to prevent damaging your knees long term.
You need to find the perfect fit for you, and things to consider when looking for suitable knee pads can include:
- If you have to pull or rearrange your trouser leg to move the kneepad into the right position.
- When buying new workwear trousers, make sure to test them standing and bending, to make sure everything lines up!
- Make sure the knee pads are right for the trousers!
Of course, not everyone is the same, not every trade or indeed project is the same either. That’s why you will find that not every knee pad has been designed to be the same.
For example, do you work inside most of the time and only kneel down occasionally? In these instances, flexible and light kneepad would be the best choice. Something that won’t bother you while you work but offers you some level of protection when you kneel down.
Or maybe you bend down more than occasionally but still not all the time? Here we would recommend a general all-rounder kneepad. Offering great protection and flexibility, but again not designed for heavy use.
Then finally, those that are on their knees for long periods of time, heavy duty knee pads are definitely the way to go. Providing the ultimate in impact protection, make sure to look for kneepads with shock absorbing qualities, as well as a kneepad that will stay in place all day, offering little movement and maximum cushioning.

Looking after your knee pads
To help improve the lifespan of your knee pads and to keep the level of protection they offer high:
- Don’t wash your knee pads while they are still inside your trousers!
- Don’t use strong detergents or very hot water when washing – handwashing is the best option if possible.
- Replace your kneepads when they’re flat or when they aren’t offering you the same level of protection anymore. Those with cracks, tears or those that don’t spring back into shape should be replaced as soon as possible.
Snickers Workwear offers attention to detail as well as protection and versatility for any craft.
