    Skinny guy knee guards

    Any suggestion? All of the ones I've tried slide down my leg a few mins into a run. I don't mind paying for the higher end ones, but I need to make sure that they fit right. I typically wear size small pads. I've tried some XS, but they are just way too tight. The small ones seem to fit comfortably, but they all seem to slide down. I have some G-Form ones too...they bunch up behind the knee and then slide down after minimal amounts of pedaling. It's not as bad when it's warm...the sweat kinda holds them up.

    Are there pads out there that don't slide down?

    I've been looking at the IXS Dagger and 7idp Flex. Anyone have those wrapped around some bird legs?

    I'm as skinny as they come these work really well for me, and cool enough for summer heat. (they slide down but very minimal, and I forget I have them on)

    there is a thread on them in this sub-forum.

    Edit: Size Small is what I ordered - if it matters I'm 5'11.5'' - 160lbs -
