Frequently Asked Questions about sizing:

How Important is Sizing?

Because SQUISH® are installed permanently, it is important that you order your exact measured inseam size. We utilize a scientific formula to determine the placement of the pad. If you over or under compensate, the pad performance will not be maximized. If you are unsure of your measured inseam size, take a tailor's measuring tape and measure from the crotch to the ankle bone to determine your inseam.

Is It Normal to Feel The Pads Moving When I Walk?

For many years, workers have been accustomed to wearing external kneepads to protect their knees. We agree, SQUISH® are different and are an entirely new way to protect knees. SQUISH® do not replace the performance characteristics of work pants, they replace the performance characteristics of external strap kneepads. Having 5 ounces of added weight in each pant leg does feel different at first. This effect goes away rather quickly as the user gets used to this feeling. Having the pads in the pants will become second nature and will hardly be noticed. Again, the trade-off is full-time kneepad protection that will always be there when it's needed.

The Pads Are Positioned Lower Than My Knees. Is This Normal?

YES- we utilize a scientific calculation to determine the correct placement of each pad within the pants based on the human anatomy. When you stand idle, the pads will be slightly lower than your knees and yes, this is different than what you are accustomed to with wearing strap kneepads. SQUISH® will automatically align themselves into their proper place when you bend down to take a knee. The fabric of the pant will actually guide the pads to the correct position to protect and cushion the lower patella and upper tibia bone; the most vulnerable areas that come in contact with the ground or floor. It is recommended that a belt or suspenders be worn to keep trousers in position.

Really like the fit of these jeans! The pockets are a little difficult to get used to, but all in all a good pair of pants.

These pants are pretty good and heavier for colder temps. I would recommend a solid metal button instead of sewn on button. Us fat guys bust buttons to quick. Also the gel knee pads could be larger and have more padding. If the elephant ear pockets could be wider and have more pant side pockets to put screw drivers in like the blakklader pants that would be nice too.

Good pants and fit is ok, I would order up a size in inseam as they seem to shrink a bit in length after a wash. This may move the kneepad location a bit, but otherwise they would also double as short pants.

comfortable, light weight and the gel knee gaurds are decent
Posted by: Floyd from Bryson, Tx
Outstanding! The knee pads and pockets separate these pants from any others that I have tried.
