    Any recommendations for some decent lightweight knee pads for use when fitting carpet?
    All I use is Alpros which I find the best pad for me so far but on carpets when you are wobbling around kicking in they just get in the way so I end up taking them off and going bare knee :rolleyes:
    Just looking for some decent 'slim line?' For use with carpets.

    Must confess I’ve never worn knee pads when fitting. I might put some on for prepping if I’m in shorts...

    Found the DeWalt ones from b&q work for me. They flatten after a time but most do. Plus they are cheap.
