I have the same problem, MominGa. Jagger, do you have any buckskins that go below the knee? If so, how do they wear in the knees? I wear jeans all year for protection when I'm working, but I blow the knees out so fast, that it hurts when I kneel. I've been looking for something that wears hard in the knees. I don't like kneepads because they cut into the backs of my legs. Thanks. Good luck, MominGa! I don't know of any good solution!
