HK Army have been making elbow and knee pads for about 10 years now, and this is their 3rd set.

I have not historically I haven’t been a big fan of HK’s soft good, things like packs, pads, and pants. Over the past few years though, their products have improved and the quality has ticked up just a bit. While it’s great to see HK products made better, this is a trend that we are seeing across the industry, which is even better.

Overall I like the HK Army CTX elbow pads, they are built well, padding is great, sizing is good and they are breathable.
