Anyone got any recommendations for tactical kneepads? I'm already anticipating being immobilised by arthritis in my knees by the time I hit 40, but it would be nice to add a few more years life to my knees.

Phase 1B in the RMR, so c. week 18/19 in regs. We're allowed to start wearing them now apparently.

Ah ok, didn't realise you were RMR as in regulars we got issued knee pads at the start of Phase 2.

Just have a look on Amazon and see what reviews look good, that's how I normally judge stuff.

They are part of the Virtus system. Personally I don't particularly like them but they do the job. Do you get Virtus in the RMR?

We don't get issued any, but have been told we're allowed to buy them.
