I used these:

Absolutely loved them. Fit very nicely under jeans and didn't interfere with the Sidis. The sleeve keeps them in place and the strap holds them up on the knee. They're the armadillo plating inside so they flex nicely to match riding position, but at the same time stiffen well when bending the opposite direction.

Looks like Knox has added a new, more breathable, version of them:

I have a much bigger hard set that I use will riding the 50 and 70 in parking lots. They stay on the outside of my jeans. A cautionary note: They work well for the initial impact of a fall on the outside of your jeans, but slide off the knee quickly when grabbed by the concrete. I washed the front end of the 70 in a school parking lot and the knee pad took the first hit, but I slid a ways and it got pulled off to the side just enough to let me impact a curb with unprotected leg. That velcro isn't too great for resisting friction at speed. Hopefully tucking them under jeans on the big bike will give a little extra hold time before they get pulled away. I always wince a bit when I see people wearing knee protection on the outside.

+1 They're not designed to be worn on the outside of your pants but they will protect you under jeans, to wit:

This:

Is why we wear this:
