Knapper® 555 Broomball <BR> Knee and Shin Pads / Guards


Knapper® Deluxe 555 Broomball Knee and Shin Pads / Guards
Updated in 2022 to the black w/ red trim color scheme with Knapper acquiring D-Gel. Knapper did add back one small strap just under the knee with the calf sleeve being made of elastic mesh. Our #1 selling and recommended knee & shin guard solution. Deluxe leg guards offering strategic protection allowing for increased freedom of movement in a sprint. Offers full protection thanks to a thick foam rubber that absorbs shocks. Covered by a resistant plastic protector. Pads will be very tight but will stretch some for players with larger knees and velcro straps can be a little short on players with "thick" calves. A quick measurement shows that calve circumferences greater than 24"could be an issue. When changing sizes, the only thing that changes is the shin portion which changes 1" in length for every size. One pair of pads per order.

  • Combination knee / shin pads for serious broomball protection.
  • Polyester breathable square mesh body with embossed branding.
  • High impact 1/2" absorbent foam.
  • Covered by strong plastic shield protecting tibia and knee.
  • Foam gives additional protection on both sides of the knee.
  • Fully elasticated knee back for a perfect fit.
  • Provides excellent ankle protection.
  • Machine washable in cold water and dry on low heat cycle.
  • Made in Taiwan.

    Best Protection for Lacrosse Goalies
    These are hands down the best pads for a lacrosse goalie. I can't feel shots taken off the shins or knees, and don't get bruised. This product would've gotten 5 stars except the manufacture changed the design. Unlike the previous 3 velcro straps on the DGgel 555 Deluxe shin guard, the Knapper 555 has mesh all the way down. This makes it hard for men who wear size 13 or 14 shoe to get their feet through them.

    Best thing I have found for slowpitch pitching.
    A lot of people recommend the Mylec Mk5 for pitchers. I have tried those and these shin guards are MUCH better for softball. These are far more protective and the only possible downside to these is that you can't remove them and put them back on easily for batting. However I have no issues batting with these. They stay in place under my pants and offer protection even when you slide. Wearing these I typically lead my team in doubles, sliding with ease. They get smelly fast, but you can throw them in the washer without issue. Durability is OK. I am a few seasons in, and the surround and ankle supports are starting to rip, so I may need to get another pair soon. If you are thinking of pulling the trigger on these, and don't mind wearing guards all game long, don't hesitate. I am 6'4 and I wear the XL. My brother in law is 5'11 and the XL works for him too. Just a heads up, they will be very tight at first, but they break in well.
