I too have the Ritual knee pads, and have been using them since the middle of May, just after the summer season started. The protection level has been great, and once I adjusted to wearing knee pads - wasn't wearing any previously - they felt great. I wound up having to rig mine with a garter to keep them in the area that I wanted, but have had no interference with my pads along the way.
That said, the problem that I've had with mine at least, is the finishing of the pads. I wear Under Armour pants, with the knee pads over top, and after only a few games, I started noticing a few loose threads. Not a big deal, but now I've noticed that on my left knee pad that the binding has torn apart from the main material covering where the bottom strap is sewn to the pad. I wouldn't expect there to be tearing that significant after only a couple of months use, and maybe being on the ice 25 times with them.
Protection is definitely a plus, but I'm not sold on the workmanship of the piece.
