Best knee pads for racing?

It's not that I'm getting old.... I just notice the bruises I come home with after racing more than I used to.

Currently I have a rather crappy sports pair of knee pads that suffice, but are slip-on and thus very difficult to put on and take off with the constant layering that goes on in PNW sailling.

Any suggestions for knee pads for racing? They should be able to be put on without removing boots, comfortable, and preferably not huge and bulky.

If a dirty bottom slows you down what do you think it does to your boat

Volleyball knee pads under everything are what I prefer...they slip on like socks and dont have any stupid straps to mess with...you can slip them down to the top of your boots for comfort when you don't need them.

I use Gill knee pads:

Gill North America: Sailing footwear, Dinghy Gear, neoprene knee pads

A bit pricey but have last two seasons of heavy use and look like new, and are very comfortable, easy to put them on and take them out.
