Besides trail running, I am also an Orienteer. Since we're mainly running off-trail, we use shin gaiters to guard against the types of things you mention - they might meet your needs as well. See:

Maybe Moeben will come out with some shin panties too! I can't remember who coined the term "arm panties" but I like it.

Actually a good idea, One time I took an alternate route through a swampy area with some thigh-high grass that cut my legs up. Owwwwch!

I like the direction you're heading with these. Dirty Girls just don't come up nearly high enough. Here's my own solution.

Soccer shin guards with some foam that holds it off the shin a bit more might work. They would need to be pretty breathable.



soccer shin guards?

Don't you think that strap would rub on your calf?...

Don't you think that strap would rub on your calf? Maybe instead of a strap, it's more like a breathable nylon or something.

Man, I could have used those. My time at RDL was 27 hours, and my shins are as sore as my hamstrings. Tim
