Noob needs help

I'm looking for a light set of knee pads for cycling. I have some 661 Veggies and they are bulky to pedal in. 661 has XC lite knee pads but I haven't been able to see them up close and personal. I would like something thats like XC knee warmers with just a little bit of padding. Does anyone know of anything like that????? Thanks for all the wonderful responses in advance.

Hahaha! Smartazz.

The EVO stuff is supposed to be the schizz; but I have no personal experience with it yet. I guess I should get a pair just so I can intelligently answer questions, huh?
