This padded knee sleeve is great for impact protection and/or kneeling. Definitely not as protective as a hard shell knee guard, but it's great as a super low profile pad for basketball, football and even the workplace. The sleeve also keeps my knee(s) warm --- half of my job is working in a giant walk-in refrigerator. I wear them for sports activities, but majority of the time I wear them under my work pants. Absorbs the blow when you accidentally bang your knee on something. I also wear them out during cold slippery conditions. (Part of my vigilante attire too!) Nike's unique foam is just better than the basic foam that most of the other brands use. 4/5 because the only negative is I feel like the pad should be wider and wrap around the knee more. Scheels was the only place I saw that sold Nike Men's Hyperstrong knee sleeve. Got them quickly and were brand new. Worth the money IMO.
