Knee protection under jeans?

Anyone use strap-on/slip-on knee protection that fits under jeans?
For local, low speed riding, not highways. Thanks.

If I'm just cruising around and taking it easy, I just wear normal jeans with nothing under them for protection. That said, when I go out for a real ride, I wear full leathers. I usually wear my A* Supertech R boots under my jeans, which should help prevent knee injuries, but I am definitely interested in picking up a pair of Dainese riding jeans with kevlar, etc. I've lowsided with just denim and didn't get cut up too bad, but I did bruise the crap out of my knee and hip to the point where it was painful to walk for a few days. I think it would have been prevented completely if I had full leathers on.

I use BMX knee protection that straps over the jeans. Good level of protection at any sensible street speed and because they're designed for pedalling in they're very comfortable on long rides. Don't think anything that goes under the jeans will offer adequate protection.

Oxtar touring boots look after the leg most of the way up to the knee.

I wear Bohn Armor pants. You do have to put up with wearing a pair of tights vs the strap on knee protectors, but you also get hip and thigh protection as well. I wear these for sport rides, so maybe not applicable for just riding around town. You're not going to be taking them off at the local coffee shop. You can get quite injured at low speeds, not just at higher speeds.
