Dainese Proshape Knee Armor
Comfortable, Light, Barely Noticeable, but thin and questionable
I really like these knee pads for light, city, slow riding. They are thin, very flexible, perforated, and quite innovative. The actual protection is provide by hexagonal knobs that collapse and absorb impact. Very nice and fit great.
The downside is that in the trade off between comfort and protection, the latter loses out. I feel these would do just fine if your knee hit the ground at slow, less than 45mph speeds, and help a little. But, they provide nowhere near the level of protection that some of the other manufacturers provide. I would've liked to see them just a little thicker. maybe with a full layer of padding on the back side, under the hex knobs.

knee pads for Montana 4D
Bough the knee pads for my Montana 4d jeans.
Fit well and did not move. When riding they adjusted very well to the contour of the knee. Good airflow and did not move around in the knee slot from the denim. Would recommend for added protection to this jeans. a bit pricey but would protect the knee better in case of a slide.

This armor is so floppy that every time I put on my jeans I need to spend 5 minutes flattening out the knee armor in my jeans. The problem is that they simply have no structure at all and they just sit in the little Dainese jeans knee armor envelope. I have thought about sewing the armor in to the pocket on all sides so it will stay in place, but this is a lot of trouble. I think I am going to put a more structured armor insert into the jeans when I get a free moment.

These pads offer very minimal protection. I am using them in a pair of Dainese heavy cotton riding pants, for casual riding.
They offer minimal protection, better than just pants alone, but for aggressive riding, you would want something much more substantial.

Comfortable and better than no protection
They are very comfortable and you would hardly know they are there. However while I believe they would assist in the slide they would be of no help in an impact. They are however exactly what I expected so I am happy.

Soft and Comfortable
They go perfectly with the hip guards and my Yamato Evo pants.
