If the knee pads float, of what value are they in a crash ... floating all over? I am disappointed in my Overland pants for that reason... although the back pad also moves around just a bit in the jacket as well ... and it does get sticky when stopped or at slow speeds. Overall, I still give the Overland combo a thumbs up.
