Too floppy
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.

Limp, ill-fitting knee protection for a low price
I tried these out in some Scorpion Covert Jeans:

Pros:

* Flexible when walking or sitting.
* Low profile doesn't show under trousers.
* Cheap. You won't be out too much scratch if you don't like them.

Cons:

* Really thin. I question whether these pads would provide significant impact resistance.
* Asymmetric design (fat on one end, skinny on the other) provides mediocre coverage either above or below the knee. You get to pick which one to sacrifice.
* Too flexible. They fold up inside trouser pockets as you move, esp. when walking around.
* Textured side catches on mesh pocket materials. This plus the very flexible material means these things are remarkably hard to install/remove.

Bottom line: Not recommended.

Looks good, but doesn't inspire confidence
This thing bunches up every time I put it on or take off. It needs to be constantly readjusted, very annoying. I even wore Dianese gear with pockets designed for these.

The good thing is they allow your gear to keep its natural look without any bulging, pretty much invisible. But I'm not sure how well it will work in a crash.

Great bang for the buck!
The material is quite impressive, and contours to the body well. While wearing it, you won't even notice its there!

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.

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.

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.

Dainese Proshape Knee Armor
I got the knee armor to fit in to the Dainese jeans that I also bought. The armor fits well and is comfortable.

I'm not sure how much protection it will really give me in a crash, as it's fairly small. Would have preferred a much larger piece of protection.

But better than nothing, certainly. Gives me a certain sense of safety.

Better than nothing...maybe
I think you're definitely trading safety for fashion and comfort with this set-up, but that's the case with Moto jeans in general. These pads--under my Dainese Montanas--are almost invisible, pliable, and don't make me sweat anymore than the Kevlar lining already does.
The problem for me is the fit. The pockets are non-adjustable, and for me they are almost all the way above my knee (in the riding position). So what scant protection these offer may end up doing nothing at all when the rubber, uh, doesn't hit the road. That may be particular to my build, though, so I won't fault them to much for that. Overall, these are a package deal with the Montana jeans which I'm fairly pleased with. So I recommend them, but with a lot of caveats.

I like the look SS Rust and Redemption Jean style and the protection. Concerns about the knee armor being very uncomfortable so I purchased Dainese Proshape Knee Armor in hopes to up comfort and keep the protection.

hopefully this knee armor swap will work

To go in a pair of pants I bought that don't come with armor.
Elizabeth J on May 7, 2016
Hey quick question,

How do I want to position the armor when wearing to ensure max protection?

Hexagonal pattern facing me or smooth side facing me?

Thanks in advance.
JoshB on Feb 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: In case some else comes here looking for the answer, i emailed dainese and this is their answer "ProShape works in both ways. The jeans have it positioned with the hex facing the leg. However it could be used in both the positions. The trade-off is Comfort (hex facing out) vs Safety(hex facing in)"
Can the pants be washed while the armor is still in?
greg g on Sep 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I have 2 pair of the Dainese Yamato EVO Cotton Pants and own one set of these Proshape Knee Armor pads. I haven't had them long but have wondered this same question. I wash my pants in the washing machine on "hand wash/delicate" setting and then dry them on delicate too...but I just take the pads out and put them back in after the pants are dry. I guess I just look at it like I paid too much for all this stuff to risk any problems. But I really don't think it would hurt anything. Probably save some hassle of taking out and putting back in. But I have to do it anyway between the two pair of pants since I only have one set of pads. I think I just said a lot of nothing. Sorry can't answer your question. Haha.
Will these work to replace the knee pads on the dainese drake air pants or will the dainese j knee guard work better?
A shopper on Jun 30, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Pro shape knee armor will not work in drake air pants.
