I've been using Triple 8 Coverts for the last year and a half.

Pros:
20 bucks at IW
Conforms to knees
Light
Comfortable and non-restrictive, I don't even know that they're there.
Elastic hasn't stretched at all.

Con:
Minimal protection. There is no hard plastic cap, only foam.

Even though I have yet to take my first fall with these pads, I believe that they would not slip off during a fall and would keep my skin from coming off. I also believe that I better not do a hard vertical drop on those pads because knee cap cracking prevention would be minimal.

So in light of all that, I really do think they would be the perfect choice for all those speedskaters who aren't wearing any knee pads at all.
