    What shinpads/guards to buy?

    Like the title says, I need your input. NONE of the local bike stores carry these (i know).

    I need good quality pads, that actually protect the back of my leg too. All of the pads I've seen on the net usually have straps and the like that go around the back of the leg, but I want a full wrap. Airflow isn't as important as protection for me.

    A kneepad combo would be a bonus.

    I have the 661s and they do offer some protection on the back of the leg - that's the thing I like about them but not sure I would buy them again. They tend to slide down just enough to mean you get little protection on the top of your knee. Also they are so hot it's not funny.

    Sizing runs pretty large - mine are actually kinda big for me, but it took a few rides to work that out, so err on the smaller side if in doubt.
