Love these
These are the most comfortable knee pads for everyday use. I have them in every pair of double front jeans I have. They are a little difficult to put in and more so to remove so I just leave them in all the time, even when washed. My first set is in their second pair of jeans.

Awesome & worth it
I actually work for Home Depot and get my Carhartt jeans through them, but I am constantly kneeling to fill the shelves so these pads are a great way to help save the knees I just wish I had done this along time ago.
Just a heads up though if you have a older washer that fills with water the pads move around and have to be repositioned. If you have to reposition the pad it is easier to fix when pants are wet, or you can turn the jeans inside out before you put in the washer this seems to fix the problem, in my case I had a few stitches put in about 1 1/2 inches above the pad to keep it in place. I do wish the pad was a little bit thicker even though I am sure comfort may why it is not thicker. Other wise don’t bother trying to buy cheaper inserts they are not as comfortable. Carhartt please make these available to retailers so we can get jeans and pads in the same place while supporting our brick and mortar stores. Also wish it was a U.S. product like the jeans.

Best Knee Pads EVER
The best! No knee pain while kneeling. I thought these would be too thin to be useful, but they are WONDERFUL.

THE knee pads for those with artificial knees
I am a heavy equipment operator. I've been in the cab for over 42 years and I'm only 61. Most people would think that it is not so bad being inside a machine and strapped to the seat all day. Have you ever seen the inside of a bulldozer? How about a motor-grader? Have you ever seen the suspension system on either of these machines? Of course not because they DON"T HAVE ANY!! I am pounded to dust every day. My arms/legs are only inches away from hard points. My hips died first about 10 years ago. The replacement surgery for these was easy. Now my knees were a WAY different story. After the replacement surgeries I learned REAL FAST how sensitive these areas had become. I was hitting them constantly on the inside of my machine and I was in agony!! Then I discovered the Carhartt knee pads that fit into the double front pants that I have worn for over 2 decades!! I always wondered why there was this little opening at the bottom of the doubled material. Now I know. I bought pairs for all my pants. Put them in and forget about them...until you hit your knee...then you will know they are worth triple the price!!!

Great kneepads!
I have knee issues and these provide excellent light duty cushion at all times. I wear size 12 women's and those need a medium size. They are just thin enough that I can wear heavy duty knee pads over them.

You can wash them in the pants but they usually get all twisted around, so take them out first.

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: I bought them for my husbands work pants and they did not fit well at all. The size small were to big for the knee pad opening in the pant.
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.
Terry on Apr 22, 2019
BEST ANSWER: We plan to restock them within the next few months. Please feel free to contact us at 1-800-833-3118 with the size you are looking for and we can assist you further.
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.
My Carhartt cargo work pants have a double front design with a hole to slip the knee pads into, but they don't seem to fit quite right due to the position of the cargo pocket. Could you list all men's pants these knee pads are compatible with?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2019
BEST ANSWER: The styles that will accommodate knee pads will be styles, B01, B136, 102802, B73, B04, 103334, 103340, 103328, 103335, 103160, 103329, and 102287.

A shopper on Feb 11, 2019

BEST ANSWER: No, this style is not compatible with our knee pads. These styles will 102438, 102966, 102443, and 102323.
When are the Carhartt Knee Pads going to be sold on Amazon?
GearFreakNY on Feb 1, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Our knee pads will only be sold on Carhartt.com and Carhartt Company stores.
Why aren't your knee pads compatible with women's work pants? I buy Carhart work pants for $80 or more a pair, and the pants have a place to insert kneepads, but no knee pads on the market will fit inside the holes, rendering the knee pad pocket useless. I would love to see a knee pad that fits in your work pants for women. Why don't these exist yet?
A shopper on Jan 24, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Some of the women's double front pants and bibs will accommodate our knee pads . Here is a list of styles that can.

-102438-Crawford Double Front Bib Overalls
-102966-Wildwood Unlined Bib Overalls
-102443-Brewster Double Front Bib Overalls
-102323-Original Fit Crawford Double-Front Pant
Do you have any jeans at all that are knee pad compatible in a 28 inch inseam?
A shopper on Jan 23, 2019
BEST ANSWER: Style B73 is offered with a 28 inch inseam in both a 30 and 32 waist.
How do you keep the knee pads in place? Mine seem to shift side to side to side, or the top of the pad ends up at the bottom of my knee.
A shopper on Jan 16, 2019
BEST ANSWER: This is my problem as well. Mine always slide to the bottom. I currently have a safety pin holding them in place (from the inside of the leg closing the opening) for now until I can get them stitched.
Do they fit exclusively carharrt pants or will they fit other double front pants?
Kevin L on Dec 9, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have not tested these in other brands.
Is there a reason size large knee pads are out of stock until 7/19?? You guys can’t be serious that’s ridiculous especially since it’s the only option you offer.
A shopper on Nov 29, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We apologize but we will have all sizes in stock.
Will large ever be back in stock?
A shopper on Nov 17, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We have received confirmation that we will not be carrying the size Large knee pad on carhartt.com. They will be available in our Carhartt-owned stores.
I want them for another brand and need dimensions for each size?
A shopper on Oct 23, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Large is 8.5 inches wide and 12 inches tall.
Medium is 6.25 inches wide and 12 inches tall.
Small is 5.25 inches wide and 12 inches tall.
What are the height and width measurements for these knee pads in inches?
art r on Oct 20, 2018
BEST ANSWER: The are all 12 inches tall. The large is 8.5 inches wide, medium 6.25 inches wide and the small is 5.25 inches wide.
Are these safe for home dryers?
A shopper on Oct 16, 2018
BEST ANSWER: Yes. We recommend that you follow the care instructions for your pants that the knee pads are inserted into. Do not exceed Machine Wash Warm; and Tumble Dry Medium. These knee pads are not suitable for industrial laundry.
I was super excited about these until I read the product features and saw “Compatible with men’s double-front pants and bibs” does this mean they aren’t compatible with my women’s double front duck bibs? If so I’m incredibly disappointed, it’s definitely not ok to make knee pads only for men. In case you didn’t realize alot of women like me buy carhartt because of its hardwearing reputation for hard workers, and we could benefit from knee pads too. Please make knee pads for women. If these will fit in women’s double front bibs and pants please list that in the features for clarity in future.
Liz B on Oct 15, 2018
BEST ANSWER: We appreciate your input. We do plan to carry knee pads fitted for women's pants/bibs in the future.
