    knee warmer question

    Can someone tell me how to size knee warmers? When I look at the sizing charts for Pearl Izumi or at Perfomarnce.com it does not give a sizing chart for knee warmers. Any ideas?
    If anyone knows how to size legs warmers please pass that along too.

    Thank you!

    If you can't try some on at a LBS, I would suggest you look at what size you would need in tights and then go with the same size in warmers. For instance, if you wear medium in tights, then go with that size.

    Who makes best fitting ones?

    I have PZs that drives me betty because they slide down... no they are not too big for me as they fit rather tight at my thigh...

    I've heard Sportful make great fitting warmers but where do you buy them though?

    PZs are not that great because they do not have gripper stuff at the top (where they need it). I am a Single Speeder so keeping the knees warm is a must!! I have tried all brands and the ones I leke the best are..... Biemme, Giessegi, and Castelli (all have grippers top and bottom). I use large shorts and large leg warmers. My sister uses medium shorts and medium leg warmers. Hope this helps..

    I'd highly recommend DeFeet Kneekers. One size fits all. They don't move once they're on, and they're pretty warm.

    Do you put them under your shorts or over it? I've never had a problem with any sliding down... but i put them under the shorts
