If you have done any length of military service chances are that you have seen one of Alta’s knee pad offerings. Of course being one the biggest knee pad producers means you get copied. The only real grumblings I have heard from co-workers on Alta pads ended up being clones. So at SHOT this year I popped by the booth to see what was new in the world of knee pads. I was shown the Contour knee pads and instantly liked what I saw. The pads articulate to move with you providing better coverage. Not only that but they fit over my giant legs which is nice.
