Kneepads are worn in many recreational and sporting activities such as cycling, rollerskating, skateboarding, cricket, volleyball, handball, basketball, American football, polo, dancing, etc. In polo, kneepads serve primarily to protect the rider's knee when "riding off" an opponent.
In trades and military use
Kneepads are also used in various trades such as for the home handyman, for the police SWAT teams, and they are also incorporated into military uniforms such as the Army Combat Uniform and the Marine Corps Combat Utility Uniform. These kneepads are generally designed differently than the general all round high impact kneepads made for sports.
