I don't have any, but will soon.

I saw a guy on a red scooter today with what looked to be a leather jacket with armor, full helmet, knee and shin guards, and boots.

He was ready for battle!

I thought I've seem some at CG that were somewhat shorter than normal (maybe Fox?)
My A* bionic knee protectors are definitely shorter than regular - might want to look into them.

yeah, I picked up some a*'s from patrick not too long ago. At first, I didn't like wearing them, too much of a hassle to put on under my jeans, etc, etc. Until I got used to wearing them. Then I went 2 the corner store without them one day, and I swear, I felt so VUNERABLE(sp?) without them on....

i wear the icon ones and they fit pretty good, i got fat calves so it took a while to break them in, i got me a pair of shift riding jeans with the kevlar on the knees and and they feel pretty sturdy. I never ride without any of those two things, the jeans are on sale at motorcycle-superstore

We bought some from Patrick not to long ago and I had to go with the youth size but I will say it took no time to get use to them and no matter where we go Noy and I both wear them. I looked around and found fitted jeans at Kohls that covered them pretty well. My knees looked a bit big but nothing to large. Go get some from Patrick they are well worth it!!!

90% of teh time I have them on. Im tellin ya man, broken bones will heal up, but tear up your knee and that's gonna take some time. It may never be right again.
