I've been using my empire knee pads since 2005 and they're in excellent shape, I can't really say anything about the new line though. Get yourself some pants with nice padded knees and then get some gel knee pads for underneath, I'm a heavier guy and my knees get a pounding when I play, this setup has worked pretty well for me.

I can't say enough about the PE Overload 2011 Knee pads. Very durable, don't slip, excellent cushioning, and pretty breathable.

Praise the sun!
A really good slide short is Empire's 2011 ZE Slide Shorts, I wear underarmor shorts beneath them, basketball shorts and dye c10 pants on top. The hip/butt and partial crotch padding is very comfortable and absorbs most of the impact when sliding. I forget I'm wearing them every time I play.

wookie in a mask
i wear a pair of empire slider pants under my older style proto knee pads then my pants.. lately the uber rare bob long pants or empire.. if you want to try to do it with cheap knee pads find a pair of jt teams by far the most padding in the knees or a pair of reds envy pants were pretty good too

I have bad knees from years of brazilian jiujitsu. I've found that any good neoprene pads with decent compression also provide good lateral support. You may want to get something that offers good lateral support in addition to standard padding.
I started playing in 1988 when I was 18 and quit in 1990. I returned to playing earlier this year, after a 22 year hiatus. I've been forced to adjust my style of play as well, since my body cannot keep up with my formerly aggressive play style.
I have to pick and choose my moments now, vs being able to go hard from start to finish. I tend to start slow now and finish hard when I can. A congenital heart condition and bad knees tend to dictate my options now, but that won't stop me from playing.
