Those are terrible

just suck it up and buy either dye, eclipse, empire

any of those will suit you well.

as for sizing, use either sizing charts or go to a local store and try them on

Anything on the sly the 2012 l/xl are perfect on the size chart but the 2011 xl don't know but 25 bucks for sly pro mercs seems like a good deal

I've heard Sly 2011 pads aren't breathable. Save up $15 more and buy Planet Eclipse pads.

They should be under your shirt or jersey so it doesn't matter. Invert pads are pretty bad too, they don't really fit and bend to your arm.

Only if they come in your size. If not it is well worth saving up all of $10 for the newer PE model.
