    Knee/Shin Guards for skinny legs DH/FR

    Hi all! Im fairly new to the mountain biking thing (I'm a rock climber mostly). I've been having loads of fun on my newly acquired DH rig, but at the cost of my bruised and bloody shins/knees. I've been looking for some knee/shin guards, but all the LBS's in my area are more catered to the road & trail riding crews.
    I'm about 5'7" ish (maybe a little taller) and 120lbs. I wear a 28 waist with 32 inseam. Sooooo my legs are fairly skinny seeing as most of my previous exercise has been upper body focused .

    Does anyone have any recommendations for some knee/shin guards? I want something that:
    1.) fits
    2.) can be put on without removing shoes
    3.) hopefully is breathable

    I am not against wearing a ladies fit if thats what it takes to protect my legs, just so long as they aren't flower power or pretty pink or weird stuff like that
