    I am about to purchase some leg protection, following a recent accident
    to my uni buddy at work ( 'Onza Bites Man' (http://tinyurl.com/4ww8k) ),
    but I am not sure which size to go with.

    I am 6ft 4, so would expect to be looking at a large/x-large, but does
    anyone have any measurements out there on which brand is the longest?
    '661 4x4's' (http://tinyurl.com/64w33) ? '661 Veggies'
    (http://tinyurl.com/58q72) ? 'Roach Indy Leg Combi'
    (http://tinyurl.com/7y4w4) ? Any others I should be looking at?

    If anyone has measurements on smaller sizes please add those too, it
    could be helpful to others on the forum looking to buy some leg

    im also 6'4, but have very skinny calves. i went ahead and ordered the
    large sixsixone 4x4s, and once they arrive i'll try them on and let you
    know how they fit.

  5. a while back i inhereted a pair of blue roach indie pads in size large.
    i am 5' 8" tall. they fit but are a little on the long side. they have
    come in handy both when i was learning and freeridding on a hard tail

    i have thick legs so most of the pads i have tried on feel a little snug
    including the large roach pads. mostly what i find is to get the
    kneecovers to fit comfortably i have to pull them down. the bottom of
    the bads dig into my foot if i dont tuck my sneeker tongue into them.

    recently though i have ordered a pair of mediums... hopefully they fit.
    if not i will have to sell one of the pairs.

    does anyone know about the arm sizing ? i figure i need medium for
