The bee's knees.
It's not well known, but Louis Garneau's Knee Warmers 2 are the most popular item for folks who split their time between beekeeping and road cycling. Why? Because they strike an effective balance between providing the insulation you need at the knee and limiting the amount of gear you need (though we should note that they don't protect well against knee stings).
The Knee Warmers 2 are made of Garneau's Heatmaxx fabric, a polyester and elastane blend with a brushed fleece back to retain body heat. A silicone gripper at the thigh keeps each knee warmer from sliding down and bunching at the knee, and flatlock seams ensure minimal friction against your skin. A reflective logo on the shin adds some extra visibility, and these knee warmers also have a UPF/SPF rating of 50.

Keeps the knees warm
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
Very happy with these knee warmers. Does what its suppose to do and keeps the knees warm. While on the bike, didn't feel any movement and felt very secure on the knees.
Hard to beat for the price
- Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer
- Fit: True to size
- Size Bought: large
I'm very satisfied with these knee warmers, especially considering how reasonably they're priced. The material on your skin feels soft but not overly so, and the added compression on the knees is pleasurable. The biggest thing I would change would be widening the silicone gripper, but all in all I'm very happy with this product.
