Dainese Knee V E1 N Guards
I ride on the more aggressive side and wanted a little more protection. These provide that and fit nicely under jeans, however, they are somewhat small.

Pretty good, better than nothing
Bought these cause I wanted something to protect my knees as I just wear kevlar jeans and wanted more protection and I seen these with the shin guard as well thought bloody oath I'll give em a go, when I got them I originally strapped on the inside of my jeans and was adjusting them a little bit through-out the ride and was rubbing a bit on my skin but I put them on the outside of my jeans and was pretty good, haven't come off yet but I'm sure these will hold up yet the side of my knee is still exposed so not too sure there but is better than not having any protection.
Give them a go doesn't hurt having extra protection
Plus you can't beat Dainese

Nice protection, excellent value
I use these under my riding pants. Putting them on takes about 30s per leg. They can be worn for hours on and off the bike without a problem and they don't hinder walking.
Unlike the typical protectors integrated to riding pants, these stay in place and cover the knee and shin in every leg configuration.
The sides of the knee are not as well covered as the front, but that seems to be the case with most knee protectors.

Great Protection without sacrificing comfort
I bought these because I had almost all the gear and the only thing missing was knee protection. These offer reliable protection while somehow keeping your lower legs cool during the summer and warm during the cooler months. I wear these underneath straight fit jeans and fit a Lil tight but after jeans stretch they fit just fine. I'm 6 feet muscular close to 200lbs and fit great. Dainese did a great job with the universal fit. At least for me...

Best I have found so far
Was skeptical at first. Need to step through the loops to get your leg in. But, only takes about 30 seconds prior to putting on jeans. Wear under Slider Kevlar jeans. Cooler than "sock type" guards and don't really notice straps once riding. Wish the guard wrapped around leg more and straps were wider for more comfort. Seem to be very well made and would provide reasonable impact protection for the money.

Great added protection
I purchased these for my work commute on a busy highway and inner city traffic. I have riding jeans with Kevlar but no impact protection and too many close calls with drivers not paying attention. I wear them under my jeans and they stick out when off the bike, but it's worth having.
I feel like the protection is decent, I can do a hard drop onto my knees without much discomfort. Obviously at speed this would be a different matter but I'm hoping not to test that. Overall a great addition to some jeans when not wearing full leathers or racing gear.

great for what they are!
So i have seen quite a few knee injuries because of accidents and decided that I wanted extra protection. For knee/shin guards these are awesome. While they may be a little more uncomfortable than normal knee pad inserts, its a trade off for safety. the only minor flaw that I can see if that the bottom most strap is quite short and really requires you to cinch it down really, really tightly. Besides that, i have no doubt that they are going to offer great protection.
