Tend to slide down your arm

One thing about pads is that it is hard to find a good fit. At first I thought I solved this issue with the EG 5550's, they seemed to fit perfectly and stayed in place, but after extended use they now slide down constantly, several buddies experienced the same problem. It seems that the elastic breaks down overtime and then they start to slide. The design is good and I do like them, they are super light, not overly breathable but also not so bulky that they smother your arms, I just wish they have a velcro strap to keep them in place.
