Mountain Bike Shorts for Kids

I'm looking for some MTB shorts for my 8 yr old son--having a hard time finding anything online that looks like it'll be small enough. Anybody have any tips? He wears a boys pants size 10 currently. Thanks!

Check this site http://www.aerotechdesigns.com/kids-bike-shorts.html

We haven't bought them yet but they seem to be a good option since Pearl Izumi seemed to cut their kids' shorts (what we got our daughter before).

Thanks! Those look great. I wonder how the sizes translate to kids' sizing? I think I'll email them and inquire....

Kind of off-subject but related. Kids' sunglasses--if you ever need them , check out Tifosi http://www.tifosioptics.com/features/kids/ We got our daughter the Wisp--3 interchangeable lens and they fit kids and women well. They're about $50-60

I actually like Tifosi's line a lot. I have the Slip and Podium XC, my dad has the Pave (which is discontinued, I believe), and my mom has the Wisp. Nice thing is they're good quality (probably the best quality of all the "budget" sunglasses I've played with), but not super expensive, so I'm more comfortable wearing them on my mountain bike than say, my Oakleys, where I'd be really pissed if I broke.
