Leg Warmers with Silicone Gripper?

I have a pair of Gore Bike Wear arm warmers, and they have the silicone grippers on the top part so that they don't fall down the arm.

I got a pair of Novara Leg Warmers, but they didn't have the silicone grippers, and they kept falling down my leg. I went to go check out the Pearl Izumi ones, and they don't have silicone grippers, and neither does the Gore Bike Wear Leg warmers.

Are there any leg warmers with silicone grippers out on the market?

I always make sure my leg warmers have some grip. Louis Garneau and Sugoi both have grippers on most of their leg warmers.

capo and specialized both have silicon grippers. I have specialized arm warmers and capo knee warmers. I think the capo has a nicer product.

DeMarchi

I have PI, Assos, Nalini, and DeMarchi warmers. DeMarchi warmers are the nicest and the only ones to have silicon grippers on both ends. I was shocked that Assos warmers didn't have silicon grippers! What would be the concept behind no silicon grippers?
