Default Effective light weight knee pads?

I seem to be in that place again. Good pads are so hard to find.

What I know now:

1) Lizard Skins Softcell: very comfortable and non-restrictive. Unfortunately, the elastic stretches out rather quickly and they are no longer in manufacture.
2) Triple-8 Street: cheap, effective, and available. Unfortunately, the elastic stretches out very very quickly and they don't match the shape of my knees all that well. They tend to shift around even when the elastic is new and a lot more when it is stretched out.

What else is available in the way of light weight pads? They need to stay on during a high speed fall. They don't need to withstand large vertical drops. They do need to be light, cool, and minimally restrictive. I skate long distances.
