PostSubject: EVA foam = Marine foam???   Sun Sep 05, 2010 1:27 am

Ok, I went to Lowes today. bought 4 X 48" driveway markers to make an experimental Javelin core with. While there, I decided to look for the gardeners knee pads that K'urn was talking about. He said they were the rectangular one's with two hand holds and were 1" thick and are Marine foam. All you need for stabby tips.

I've seen those before, but they didn't have any back in the gardner section, nor in the hardware section. They did have those 1" thick, One foot square, "Spongebob Squarepants" knee pads with one handhold. They were $1.49 or something like that. It says "100 % EVA" They feel like rubbery foam. So my question is, is this 100 % EVA pad the same as the more expensive knee pads and considered Marine foam, or is it a cheaper version and more like the yoga mat foam???

Also, in the hardware aisle, Lowe's carries a brand of knee pads that has an undyed leather outer covering. They are $29.00.

They are not knee pads...they are cushions for gardeners to kneel on. They only have one handle and are a greenish color. Approx. 12"x18". I don't know what 'type' of foam it is...I wish I could find out.

The one I have is yellow, about 12" by perhaps 18". (I'd have to measure when the kids are asleep. They would want them if they saw them) Yes, they have one handle. I will bring one with me when I drop off the loaner weapons. If you are there, K'urn, maybe you can give me your opinion. Yes, they are not Knee pads, but a simple pad laid on the ground to put one's 'knees' on while digging in the dirt. These are the kiddie version, so I"m not sure on the quality of the foam, though it felt good enough for me to buy two of them.
