Just got a second set of these protectors for one of my teammates. I originally purchased the first set made by the same manufacturer three or four years ago from Tozando, and they still last. Pads are very comfortable and are good for almost all the sizes. They may seem thin, but the material is very durable and mine haven't worn down yet. Also, the fact that they are thin makes them perfect for iaido, as thick volleyball-type pads shift the body balance back, which may hamper your sitting techniques. The velcro straps are great, the velcro itself doesn't wear off at all, and it holds the straps in position perfectly. The straps themselves do not cut off blood circulation under the knees as some other knee protectors do, which means that you can use them during long training sessions or sit in seiza comfortably without any problems for your knees. Also, I'd like to thank Tozando for expeditiously resolving the issue with the shipping company, this was nice of you guys.
