Alpinestars Bio Armor Protection Kit
bought these to upgrade the armor in an awesome older leather jacket and they do the trick, they fit into the pockets well, feel like they will offer good protection which I hope I never get to test. I think they are good for the price.

Saved my shoulder and elbow
I was lucky enough (smart enough) to be wearing these during a recent accident. I went off my bike over the bars at around 20mph and landed head/shoulder first on the pavement. It literally felt like landing on pillows when it happened. I have a bit of soreness now after a few weeks, but there was never any noticeable bruising even after the accident, and I bruise extremely easily. At this price point, it's a no brainer!
Note, these are easily sewn into, or attached by velcro, to an undershirt, so you can have that armored shirt and still wear cool vintage leather like I do.

Works great in my River Road Vise Leather Jacket
Perfect fit, very well made. Also purchased the Back Protector (http://www.revzilla.com/product/knox-tp2-ce-back-protector). It also is of very high quality.

Barely fitted my H-D jacket that needed replacements shoulder and elbow protection.
The original ones desintegrated.

Great value for a quality product. They are a definite upgrade to the armor that came with my jacket.

Nice fit and very comfortable
While I can not comment on the pads resilience during a crash (I am lucky enough to not have crashed yet) I can comment on their fit and comfort. Installing them into my motorcycle jacket was quick and easy. The pads wear easily and best of all they are not as bulky and cumbersome as some other pads I have own in the past. Many of my riding friends are surprised to learn that I am wearing protective pads at all. I am extremely pleased with my purchased.

Fits my Lookwell Airflow jacket perfectly! Protection offered is much better than original protection.

Upgraded my Winter Jacket with these
Great addition, upgrade over the regular protection that comes with non-technical jackets. Fits... Comfortable...
