what is a good elbow guard that will not give me arm pump but wont slip around

 

Elbow pads do nothing for arm pump. That is conditioning and being loose on the bars. Pads protect you from bumps and debris.

if you have a elbow guard that is to tight it will cause arm pump

 

Leatt makes a good elbow guard

I only wear them when riding rocky terrain, but I use the Bilt brand from Cycle Gear.  Very basic guard, and very cheap, but gets the job done.

I tried many different kinds, found a pair for paintball that I really like.  Just enough material there to keep the road rash off in all but the most extreme wipeouts.... and comfortable enough to wear all day.

Might also look at downhill MTB gear.
