Uses: It's use is fairly obvious, extra protection goes a long way. It shouldn't encumber you a whole lot, since it's only on a relatively small part of your body. I doubt it'd deflect a shot very well, but against zombies it might be useful. Unless they're going for ridiculously accurate zombie bites, I'd say just a percentage increase to not get bit would be enough.

Advantages:
-
Extra protection. With busted knees you're not going to be able to move around a whole lot..
- Fairly common in sporting goods stores.

Disadvantages:
- Other than sporting goods stores, you're pretty limited on where you're going to find them.
- Only covers a very small portion of your body.

Yes (a million times)

I like the idea of that, but make them specifically a non-military style... say some bicycling knee pads, elbow pads, etc.



Police Elbow/Knee Pads


Hockey Knee Pads


MotoCross Knee Pads


Paintball Elbow Pads




I am sure this could slightly be expanded on by a couple different masks/helmets, maybe some additional hockey pads, etc.

@DemoCar82

Yeah, that's basically what I had in mind, only sporting equipment. It's rare to find any kind of sporting goods in survival games, even though they provide protection without slowing you down a whole lot (Excluding giant hockey pads and such.)

Although military grade stuff like this wouldn't be too OP or anything.

I like it but I think you should include shin and forearm protection as well you can find them in the same places and there just as useful in covering important body parts'

I think it would be cool if these where added, on top of this it would be cool if you could like put big nails through them to give you that apocalyptic feeling, also if you have spikes coming out of the elbow pads you could use it to stab a zombie if it comes from behind to help you get away form it.
