I've been using them for two seasons -I'm in San Diego, so they don't get a whole lot of use- and they are fine. My only basis for comparison are my Defeet arm warmers. The Defeet seem to be a bit softer and more comfy. Overall, the Perf leg warmers work and they are a good value.

I use 'em along with their arm warmers. Work fine and no complaints.

They are pretty warm and they are polypropylene, which is a great fabric if you sweat or it rains-probably the best fabric, and its not very high tech.

I have used the Performance leg warmers for two winters now, and they work great. Some people have complained about leg warmers sliding down, but these stay in place. They also are very warm. I also have the Performance microfleece tights, which I got on sale for $25, and they really keep you warm in colder temperatures but aren't too hot if it warms up. (In colder temps, below 40, the leg warmers will keep your legs warm, but your crotch and thighs get cold.) I also have the DeFeet ArmSkins and they are a great product, but I haven't tried their Kneekers -- I don't know why they don't just make them full length to cover your whole lower leg.
Have you looked Defeet Kneekers?Sintesi

$20 at Excel. They're a really good product. Here's a link.
Also, you can where them lower than the picture shows.
