Forcefield does not disappoint, again
After using the ForceField back protector as an upgrade for stock A-Star and Dainese jackets, I decided to give the hip protectors a shot. Once again, I am impressed, perhaps because here's a company whose entire purpose and focus is body armor.
FF armor flexes as you move and doesn't pinch or feel hot--the 'honeycomb' structure allows ventilation and seems to absorb force without losing shape or becoming damaged. Thankfully I haven't actually crashed but I have done some quick personal tests which give me some sense of confidence I am getting some good energy absorption.
I bought these because my Rev'It hip armor for the Air Wave pants just pinched my sides for some reason. The FF was an easy swap and I am much more comfortable, plus the level of protection seems higher now.

Best protection for Rev IT Airwave Pants
This is a big step up from the standard foam pads provided in the Rev IT Airwave pants. I initially upgraded from the standard foam pads to the Knox hip armor...but it clearly lacked the coverage (though protective) which the hip pocket is designed to accommodate. Luckily I haven't been down under to confirm how well it holds, but I'm sure I won't be disappointed. Full marks to Revzilla's customer service for guiding me through the details and also prompt delivery (as always). You guys simply delight.

Cushions for your hips
Your joints are the weakest part of your body and why manufacturers don't provide included hip protection is beyond me. I was looking at various hip protection solutions that fit my jeans, my budget, and were comfortable. I wear the AGV Sport Alloy jeans, which I also bought from Revzilla.

I initially bought the Icon Stryker shorts, but trying to wear them under my jeans just made it extremely uncomfortable and bulky. I then tried taking the D3O pads from the Stryker shorts and putting them in the AGV jeans to see how it was - no bueno. The pockets for the pads were too big and the D3O pads didn't sit well. Plus they're tiny; no way would they have any real protection in a fall.

Back to the catalog... protective shorts were out of the question, so I started looking for removable hip pads. I was browsing the Revzilla website for hip pads and settled on this one. The reviews and the brand reputation hooked me on the purchase.

When I received the pads, they were huge! I thought no way they'd fit in my pants. It's 4 layers of rubber, but low and behold, they fit PERFECTLY in my AGV Sport Alloy jeans. They fill the entire hip pad pocket and don't move. They're extremely comfortable and you can't even tell they're there when you look in a mirror. These pads really increased my confidence in riding on the street. You can feel them there, but they don't affect flexibility or comfort.

My only concern is that while they are hip protectors, they don't really protect your pelvis. I did some trials to simulate falling on a bike with the pads in and in some instances when I fell, my pelvis made contact with the ground. Nevertheless, these are HIP PROTECTORS and they do a really good job at protecting your hip. Hopefully I will never have to test them out in a real life situation.

Perfect for Rhok Jeans
Rhok Jeans supplies knee armor for the hip pockets in their gen3 model. ?! It's a lousy fit in the armor pockets and gives a guy "girl hips". The Forcefield 4-layer hip armor appears to be what the Rhok hip armor pockets are really designed for, as they are a perfect fit and mold well. This is my third set of Forcefield armor, having also put their back and elbow armor in a Dainese EVO jacket. It's all great stuff, very comfortable and feels like it should protect very well.

Slipped these Forcefield hip pads into 2014 Klim Dakar pants and they fit without modifying them or the pants. Covers the hip well and didn't notice them while riding last week. Vented well. The sport lite back protector insert worked well too.

For Darien Aerostich Pants
Revzilla delivered these overnight which was awesome. I also ordered the knee protectors as well. Guess you say that I've drank the Forcefield cool-aid. Have their back insert on my Klim Induction jacket as well. Anyhow, for those of you thinking about these Hip protectors on Aerostich Dariens, make your own sleeve with some fabric and sew on velcro. Once I had them configured properly, I feel much better about commuting each day. You also need some room on the pants as they'll add an inch or two on the waist. I don't find them bulky as well. Real test will be during the summer when it gets super hot. These actually feel like they'll do some protecting and hope that I never get to find out. Oh and yes they do leave that new plastic smell, which I actually like! Feels like I'm putting on a fresh new pair of pants each day!

Mine measured 6" wide by 7.25" long
Just wanted to post the measurements from the hip pads I got 3 years ago. Revzilla is listing it as 9" long, 7" wide.
Since then Forcefield might have made them larger?
The length of 7.25 includes the odd shaped tip on bottom, in the center it measures 6.5 " long/high.
I wear in Olympia airglide pants, fits very well.
after 3 years of use, they show no signs of wear. They do not flow air very well.

Solid protection
I got this armor to replace the non-ce rated hip armor in my Olympia Airglide pants. The pads fit the pockets well and put the armor directly over my greater trochanter. Can't ask for much more.

Great replacement armor
My Olympia Motoquest pants only came with EVA foam in the hips so I started doing some research to find the best replacements and ended up here. I tried D3O T5 Evo Pro and it's great armor but it was too small for the pocket and hung a bit too low. I was beginning to consider doing some mods to the pockets when I saw these. I watched the Revzilla Forcefield armor video and was impressed enough to try them out. They have an unique shape to them (they're clearly marked on the back so there's no question on how to properly orient them in your pants) and I wondered if the shape would make them twist around in the pockets so they wouldn't provide the best protection, but after a 90 minute ride they hadn't moved a bit and I didn't even notice they were there. Bang for the buck is a 4 only because you are paying $40 for some rubber pads. They're very comfortable, although the temp was around 65 for my test ride and I'm sure they'll be making me sweat a little in the summer but it's worth it for the protection. They also seem like they would hold up well in a crash. All-in-all, a great product that I would not hesitate to recommend. Ride safe!

My REV'IT Turbine pants (size 34 women's) had this awful, cheap foam padding in lieu of actual hip protection.

Tony in customer care, gladly helped me out and recommended these. Hope they fit as well as the reviews say, but considering they're all male, I'm worried that these might be too big for my pants. Looking forward to getting them.

I currently use the limb tubes from Forcefield and their awesome. However, I have some pants that just have velcro straps for the hip armor and I need to replace the hip armor in them. Do these hip replacements have velcro attachments for velcro straps in the hip area?
A shopper on Mar 11, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I wanted to know how to attach the pads before buying too. I purchased the hip pads the other week and it did NOT include velcro. Fortunatly they slid into my Klim Dakar pants existing panel without modification. You should know the smooth side with small holes go toward your body. I would guess Velcro would still stick well on the wide lattice side but did not try that.
How thick are the pads?
Peter M on Mar 7, 2014
BEST ANSWER: I measured mine at 16mm, consisting of 4 layers at 4mm each.

Hey, This hip protector comes as a pair right? Might be a silly question but i have to get it shipped overseas and id rather be sure that i do everything to one billing.

thanks :)
Varun L on Jul 6, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Yes, they are sold as a pair. Once you get them they are clearly marked as to Left and Right sides. Just be sure the insert pockets on your pants are large enough to fit them. I put them into women's Rev'It pants and had to do some alterations to make them fit.
I also am trying to replace the worthless padding (bunches up) in my Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0 pants. Could someone please post the dimensions (width x length) of these pads so we can determine if they'll fit with or without trimming? Thanks in advance...
Blake M on Aug 2, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The armor is about 6.1 inches wide and 7.3 inches high. They are about the same width and slightly shorter than the cheap foam that was in my Olympia Airglide pants. The Forcefield replacement hip armor fit very well in my Olympia pants and when I am in the riding position the pads feel like they are in the right place. They are no doubt a significant upgrade to the original hip foam which I would not even consider as pads.
Would these fit the Rev'IT Tornado pants?
Vikhyath K on Jul 30, 2015
BEST ANSWER: They will fit, but they;re bulky, I returned them and instead got the D30 hip armor from Rukka. Those are awesome, and fit in the Tornado's hip armor pockets.
Will these fit my REV'IT Enterprise Pants, size MD tall?
Jason M on Jan 16, 2014
BEST ANSWER: The material is very flexible and therefore molds to the body nicely. If they are too big you can always trim them.
Do these hip armors protect from an impact or only from abrasion and heat?
Cesar F on Jun 14, 2016
BEST ANSWER: This type of armor is specifically for impact as it hardens upon force. I don't think they'll do much for abrasion and heat. The pants that you will put them into should be your protection from abrasion and heat.
