My 14-year old daughter is 5’7 in height, 118 lbs in weight and has a knee circumference of 13”. I bought the medium size of this knee-pad and it fit perfectly. It has ample padding (but bulkier than the Nike she had), which is really good. My daughter is not hesitant to dive when the situation calls for it. I had to remove/cut the white plastic tag though. It irritates her skin. I wish that, they will manufacture something that is tag-free. Other than that, my daughter is happy with this knee-pad.
Now, I have to buy Mizuno shorts and shoes to compliment the knee-pads.
I honestly believe that you should consider the position you're playing when you select your knee pads, though, at the end of the day, you will probably arrive at the same decision regardless the position you're playing. For me, I tend to roll my the excess fabric on the knee pads down a fold so that they are not shifting when I'm playing. I've had too many issues in the past where I've had to dive multiple times in a rally, and the knee pad gifts shifted, and on the last dive, I get a massive bruise somewhere. Whether I'm playing libero or setting, I dive a lot. The packaging suggests that you "select VOLLEYBALL KNEEPADS suited for your body's size and athletic objective," so I guess I'm on to something. ;-)
Some people like to wear knee pads that have a multitude of pads covering all sides of the knee. My main focus is on the sides, but I also use the top/middle quite a bit. I don't like to have too much going on because I have to sprint all over the court, so too much padding slows me down, causing me to have to use the knee pads even more.
Comfort: If I have to play back-to-back games, I don't feel like ripping them off in the middle of the game. They become like a second skin. The packaging states that, "wearing VOLLEYBALL KNEEPADS too tight can slow blood circulation in that location of the body," so take note, people. You might like your spandex or shirt super tight, but that is a bad idea when it comes to knee pads.
Design: The design is great. They had to have consulted with actual volleyball players before producing this one, because it's practical, and seems that everything that normally drives me crazy about knee pads is absent in these.
Support: They have supported me through quite a few rough tournaments (rough = I am running all over the court like a crazy person, and we still don't win), but again, some people might prefer even more padding, and a longer sleeve on the knee pad. If you don't need that, then it gives great support.
Colors: They come in traditional white or black, but they also come in black with highlighter yellow trim on the top and bottom, lime green with pink trim, baby blue with yellow trim, and pink with baby blue trim. While I love bright colors, I'm not a fan of bright-colored knee pads, but that's just me. I like everything to coordinate, so I guess I'm kind of preppy when it comes to my volleyball attire?
Pros: They don't roll as much as some other knee pads, so they stay in place during long matches. They also don't seem to get stinky like some other brands. (Ever been in a volleyball huddle after the game, when everyone is pulling their knee pads down? P.U.) I threw them in the washer and let them air dry, and they kept their shape and dried pretty quickly. Most importantly, they get the job done. When I dive on them, it doesn't hurt!
Cons: It's not a con for me, but some people might not like how short they are. The entire knee pad is only 6 inches. I had a difficult time thinking of anything bad to say about these knee pads. They are awesome!
TL;DR: These knee pads are awesome, if you like a shorter design and don't need massive pads. For the quality, they're reasonably priced, and come in different colors.
LPT At the end of a work day the inside will have sweat, I usually just spray it with alcohol to sanitize it until I have laundry day. Doesn't ever feel dirty. If you are break out prone sanitizing them should suffice.
