As in virtually every other sport, volleyball players benefit greatly from recent technological strides in the construction of synthetic materials. The volleyball knee pad is a beautiful example of the benefits of modern technology translated into practical sporting solutions. You can get a great volleyball knee pad that concentrates vital padding around your knee area without adding undesirable bulk.

A volleyball knee pad should be wide, yet thin and with plenty of bulk over the knee cap itself for cushioning. Contouring for inner and outer knee coverage are highly desirable as they add protection while making the volleyball knee pad appear as unobtrusive as possible. Nearly all models of volleyball knee pad are wrap around, as this is simply the most practical solution.

Price Range

You can get a great volleyball knee pad for under twenty dollars a pair, but if you're concerned about melting pads and you play a lot, you might be better off something at the top end of the volleyball knee pad market. Mizuno has a great model that would fit the bill. With the usual skillful contouring, this model has a greater amount of bulk at the knee for greater protection and longer life of the pads.

Like any item of sports protection wear, fit is crucial. Always try your volleyball knee pad before you buy, and make sure it fits snugly and securely, but won't slide or ride. You might consider buying two pairs so that if you lose one or break one, you'll always have a spare volleyball knee pad for protection at all times.
