    soccer?

    I used to use soccer shin guards. Great front protection and very minimal.

    You could try the 661 Racelites. They are lower profile than Roach (I have both), well-ventilated, and hard shelled. They would probably fit under jeans. That said, they don't offer near the comfort or protection (or quality) of Roach armour. They also slip like mofos, get the 661 padlocks to go with them.

    I have the Roach Rally DHs, Just like Shiver, Very good stuff, I don't strap the top straps and they are quite alright at that point. I didn't like the fox 911 or whaever they are called and thats all I've tried.

    Never!!! I had those and they just slip and slide like theres butter on your leg...

    I now use http://www.sixsixone.com/gear/pads_mxe.html with http://www.sixsixone.com/gear/support_padlock.html

    Work great, very low profile, and together are still around the price of say the roaches.

    They do, without a doubt. The padlocks are a must. What you guys are missing is that he wants to wear them UNDER jeans. Roaches and the regular 661s would be stoopid-tight under jeans, unless you were rocking some circa-1994 hefty-bag style JNCOs.

    I'm no big fan of the racelites, but they'd work for what he is looking for. Personally, I'd get softsided pads if I were going to wear them under jeans, something like the Roach Indys or lizard skins.

    Negative on 661 racelites. Too hot, straps wear out fast and boy, do they hurt your legs! I borrowed my friend's Roach and they seemes slimmer with more area covered.

    My girlfriend just got some adidas soccer shin guards and they are hard shell but not too bulky that they wouldnt fit under pants.

    I was going to mention 661 veggie shin guards but they are not exactly "hard shell" but still get the job done.

    I have a pair of Rock Garden Air Frames. Pretty comfortable, breathe very well, don't slide around much and are small enough to fit under a pair of jeans.
