Arc’teryx Kneecaps Now in Grey Green

Wednesday, June 4th, 2008

Arc’teryx has updated their successful Knee Cap pads by offering them in Grey Green. This new color complements the ACU quite well as you can see in the photos. Originally designed as telemark kneepads the Knee Cap soon saw interest from troops who wanted a lightweight, highly breathable pad primarily for urban operations. They weigh in at just over 5 ounces and in order to adequately protect the knee at such a low weight, the cap is made from Kydex. In the photos you can see the simple, yet effective camlock buckle that holds the straps in place. The upper strap is elastic and the lower strap is a lightweight nylon tape.
