These knee pads are great in the garden and lawns. Still a bit sore on cement or bricks. I do like that they fit right into the overalls. In the past I spent too much time repurposing old jeans by sewing on knee pad pockets. The only fault is that although the guide says the overalls can be machine washed and dried without removing the knee pads, they sometimes do get twisted up in the dryer.

Knee pads need to be wider
The pads then self are nice, downside they are to small for the knee area. They slide one side or the other so they don't stay centered over your knee and a few times they have worked them self 1/2 way out of the pocket
I would order the larger size than recommended

Saving my knees
I've been recovering from a knee injury--these have been a knee-saver. I like that they fit nicely in my B01's.

Knee pads look improved
Pads look like an improvement over the old ones and area more flexible and less of a struggle to squeeze into the pockets.

I’ve been using the knee pads 5 times a week since receiving my order. My knees are bruised, discolored, sore and in pain. I wasted my money . I would not recommend these at all.

Better not perfect
I just don’t get why the knee pad insert area has always been so long and the knee pads are so small. Either make a long shin/ knee pad insert or shorten the insert area on pants please. These are better than the previous little inserts I bought from Work World but they’re still barely going to my knees. I’m thinking of lining them up and sewing in a few spots to keep them in place

How many?
A shopper on Apr 21, 2021
BEST ANSWER: This will be one pair.
How do these hold up to heat?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2021
BEST ANSWER: I have been using the Carhart kneepads for many years, I have used them in a variety of situations. Mainly flooring and roofing, they seem to hold up to the heat on the roof in 100 degree days
I'm looking to fill the pocket as much as possible with padding to cover the sides of my knees. Can I fit a large knee pad in a size 36 Rugged Flex Steel Multi Pocket (103159-029) Pant? Would I be able to cut off individual cells to customize fit if I need too?
Michael E on Dec 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I would get the large ones and cut them if needed. I also put mine in upside down because my knees kept sliding off to one side. I did get the mediums but I would buy the large ones if I buy them again. These are not very soft. I put thicker ones (not Carhartt brand) in my pants. It makes it a little hard to get the pants down over the knees but much better cushion. I have 103335 Rugged Flex® Steel Cargo Pants.
Will these knees pads fit a size medium woman's bib overalls? If so what size do I need?
A shopper on Nov 1, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'd probably go with the mediums. If they're a little too big big and don't fit quite right, they'd be easy to trim in order to customize the fit. If in doubt, order all three, figure out which one is the closest fit, and return the ones that didn't work. Just my $.02 worth.
As a Plumber will these knee pads wear out fast or what would the lifespan be around?
Coltan on Aug 28, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Hi Coltan,
As a private shopper I bought these knee pads and trousers and I can’t say enough about them - absolutely comfortable and the pad design allows kneeing without any discomfort. I will say however that the cotton trousers I had to replace as the cotton wore-out - so I bought the tear-proof type which are perfect.

Which pants use knee pads inserts?
A shopper on Aug 18, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Here is a link for the pants and bibs. They will also have a yellow icon next to the style.

What are the dimensions of the different size knee pads? That seems like it would be useful info for deciding which to buy
A shopper on Aug 11, 2020
BEST ANSWER: All of the knee pads are 12 inches long. The small size is 5 1/4 inches wide, at the largest part. The medium size is 6 1/4 inches wide, at the largest part. The large size is 8 1/2 inches wide, at the largest part.
I bought the cargo pants with the double fronts. But the pockets are stitch into that space so my pads don't fit. Do I cut down the knee pads? B342
A shopper on Aug 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: I'd guess that if your pockets are stitched into the space for the pads, the pants have not been assembled correctly. My pockets are in no way interfering with the pads.

My problem is that as an under five-foot person, the pads are too low on my leg to be under my knees. I have pushed the pads as high as I can in their space and put a stitch below them to keep them from slipping down. This works, but I have to undo it to wash, as I want to wash in hot; and this means removing the pads.
What are they made of?
A shopper on Jun 7, 2020
BEST ANSWER: We apologize, the material is proprietary.
Is quantity 1 for 1 pair or a single pad?
A shopper on May 4, 2020
BEST ANSWER: This will be a pair for 1 order.
Are these stick on, or inserts? I was hoping to wear these on the outside of my work leggings I got because they are not compatible, and I honestly like the look.
carl5 on Apr 14, 2020
BEST ANSWER: These are designed to insert inside double-front work pants.
What size for 31x30?
A shopper on Mar 8, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Since a size 31 falls between sizes, we recommend you select the size larger. You would need a size medium.
Will the large pads fit in the size 36 -30 pants?
A shopper on Jan 16, 2020
BEST ANSWER: A size medium fits waist size 32"-36".
If I have the 36w 30seam double front pants will the large fit in them better so they won’t slip out of place?
Jay H on Jan 13, 2020
BEST ANSWER: Jay, I wear a 36w 30 in seam myself and recommend the large pad. They have made a big difference for me. Although I wore conventional buckle on pads for jobs I knew would need a lot of kneeling, I was still having knee problems. With the Carhartt pads I always have pads for even small jobs and my knee problems are much less.
Is size "small" going to fit the size 2 women's rugged flex work pants? They have the knee pad opening, but the waist measurements are still too large for me. Or are they cut to fit? Thanks.
A shopper on Dec 28, 2019
BEST ANSWER: They are not sized well for women’s size 2. You could modify them by cutting them. At $40 a pair though I returned them and made my own with some high density foam
What size knee pads for a 32 x 30 pants size?
A shopper on Oct 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Size medium fits waist size 32"-36"
What size would fit women's size 10 Crawford pant? All the sizes I see are for men's pant sizing.
Peg W on Oct 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Hi Peg,
If you go by the waist size of your pants , you can use the men’s knee pad size chart. I would guess you should use medium knee pads. If your size 10 women’s is about a 30-32 waist size then the mediums should be ok. You can also trim the pads with scissors if they are slightly too big. I like my pads to fill up the pocket they slide into for better protection of my knees , if you order the exact size for your pants the pads are slightly too small. I have a 36 waist but use the large knee pads which start at 38. Mediums go from 32”-36” waist size pants. Small is 28”-30” and the pads are very tiny for small.
I hope this helps you.
Do you have to air dry the pants with the pads or can you just put them in the dryer?
A shopper on Aug 27, 2019
BEST ANSWER: I installed the knee pads about 6 months ago.
I have washed these on average 2 times per week, and put them in the dryer on "low heat" setting .
I wouldn't hesitate to dry them on "high" if I needed quick turn around. These pads are very Thick and robust- I dont think you could hurt them if you tried- well, maybe if you took a very sharp knife to them, you migh do some damage
What is the thickness of the knee pads?
A shopper on Aug 6, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The knee pads are 5/16" thick.
Will the small kneepads fit in size 14 youth overalls?
A shopper on Jul 30, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The Kneepads were not intended for our Kid's garments. However, based on the double front size of the knee on a youth 14 the small knee pads should fit.
Are these heavier than the foam inserts?
chris s on Jul 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: no they are very comfortable only drawback is how the are inserted in the clothing and stay. It seems to small for the pants. I even purchased Carhartt pants. In short would buy again as I am used to adjusting them 2-3x a day but my knees are very comfortable and don't hurt as much
Will these work for the femals work pants? My double front work pants are size 10.
A shopper on Jul 2, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The knee pads will work women pant styles 102438, 102966, 102443, and 102323.
How easy are these to remove? I'm wondering if they will be a pain to remove for washing. They are rated for 50 wash cycles but I would like them to last longer.
A shopper on Apr 25, 2019
BEST ANSWER: You won't have to take them out to wash, you’ll only have to take them out to put them in new pants. The knees on the pants will likely wear out before these pads will. I still have a pair the “old” rectangle, foam pads that have probably been washed well over 100 times and other than being a little thin from age still have life in them. They’ve made it through probably a dozen pair of pants and these new pads appear to be of a similar quality and I expect them to last through many pair of pants as well.

I can remove both pads in under a minute if necessary…with the pants on. Putting them back in is best done with them off but even that only takes a couple minutes per knee.
Will you have more in stock soon?
A shopper on Apr 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Yes, we will be restocking more in the next few months. Please contact us at 1-800-833-3118 with the size you are interested in for further assistance.
Howdy Carhartt peeps. When will the kneepads be back in stock? I need them. I don't really need things like t-shirts with puppies on them. Hope your day is lovely.

How do I know what size to get?
A shopper on Mar 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Size small fits waist size 28"-30"; Size medium fits waist size 32"-36"; Size large fits waist size 38" and up.
Wondering what size knee pad (small or medium) would better fit a size 31 waist 32 length B01 pant?
John G on Mar 15, 2019
BEST ANSWER: For a waist size 31 and under, we would recommend a size Small. For waist sizes 32-36, we recommend Medium.
