The descriptions seem to imply people do wear them underneath. Most of my pants are relatively baggy, so it might work. Worth giving a shot I think. Rather spend $100 and come out relatively unhurt, than spend that many more times recovering from some knee injury.

I bought them at Pro Caliber b/c I wanted to try them on and walk around before buying. And, while there, I found out that their Costco purchasing program for motorcycles also has benefits for accessories. I think it was 15% discount from Pro Caliber, so they were $15 cheaper than Revzilla.

I've used the Costco membership discount there, but one of my friends is a sales guy there and said that it looks like they'll cancel it. I'll check it out anyway, because trying it on is always better, plus supporting a local store is a good thing. I need to think of the local places before clicking RevZilla :002:

Thanks for the hints Halbie! Just left pro caliber with those Leatt dual axis knee and shin guards. They had my size and they fit well under my riding jeans. Have to get used to the things grabbing my leg all the time, but so far so good!

Don't forget the hip armour too, folks-after 2 new hips i always pay attention to that; after a recent low ie stationary fall in my ktm as it stalled at zero pace and my foot got twisted under the engine-broken heel bone. Absolutely not a mark or bruise anywhere else!

Yeah, hip armor in the riding jeans. I'm using the D3O CE level 2 ones. Hope I'll never have to test their quality.
