I went by the sizing chart off the 187 Killer website and they were WAY too small! I contacted the seller and they exchanged my knee pads for a medium. I got them and it's different from the first pair I ordered. It's good though. Because the first pair you had to take your skates off to slide on over your knee. This pair I can keep my skates on and put the knee pads on. BUT they are WAYYY to padded. It looks like I have a tumor on my knees, they are huge! they are comfortable but way to thick. I kno that's a good thing for protecting your knees but that's too much. That's my only issue with the pads. Still good looking and haven't had a problem with them yet
I bought these pads for women's roller derby. I'm a smaller skater at 125lbs, and I was looking for something to replace my Smith scabs knee pads, which are great pads but are too wide and long for my small legs. These pads fit my knees perfectly and provide just as much protection as my old, more expensive pads. They are stretching as they break in, so I'll be adding gaskets underneath to help them stay in place. In the meantime I'm taping them to make sure they don't move, and have had no issues with them slipping. Heavier skaters may want to invest in the 187 pros, but for me the flys are great. They are marked for left or right, and they are slip on (no butterfly closure).
These knee pads have been great for falls and slides in Roller Derby. I bought the extra large after finding a sizing chart online. Once these are around my knees they fit really well, but I have large calves and had to stretch the pads out for a few weeks before I could even wear them. They are especially hard to get off once practice is finished and I've been sweating. If you have large calves like me, I would advise spending the extra money to get these pads with around the back closures and not the sleeves.
