I've had no luck with Pearl Izumi.

are you sure you have right size? I have Pearls and no problem. Also own Descente (yeah, old ones) and they work fine also. Or, maybe you just have tree trunks for legs.

Try this: wear the knee warmers on the inside of the shorts' legs, and fold the elastic top band down so that the elastic is rubbing against the leg of the short instead of against your leg. It solved the problem for me.

pull up your shorts as high as you can and then put on the leg warmers. pull the legs on the shorts back down over the top of the warmers. They stay just fine.
deFeet, overlap warmer-shorts about 4 inches. nmBruno

Tights instead?Kerry

I used to use leg warmers, but the only advantage of them over tights was that you could take them off without stopping (dicey at best). I find that if it's cold enough to need leg warmers, the second layer over your shorts is appreciated. Tights fold up just as compactly as a pair of leg warmers, so I find tights more effective and just as convenient. My $0.02.

At 65 degrees, or even a little cooler, it's too warm for tights to me, but I feel better and ride better with something over my knees. So, I use the kneewarmers, or (better yet) knickers! No bunching, no drooping. Good ole Euro-trash looking goofiness.
