I use Troy Lee Designs KG 5450 Adult Knee / Shin Guard and love them. I can wear shorts most of the winter because the pads are warm and comfy. I have minimal problem with the pads slipping down my legs. I think knee pads, gloves and a helmet are the “least” you should wear. I wear elbow for some rides but have not found any that are comfortable or don’t get annoyingly hot. One trick I do with all my gear is that every few rides I spray pads and shoes with a little lysol spray. I also keep all my pads in a mesh laundry bag so they can easily air dry. It is great when you are camping. After a ride you can just hang your gear on your bike rack or from a tree and let it air dry. The mesh bags are super cheap and also keep your gear together.
