Forcefield 4-Layer Replacement Hip Armor 4.8 5 26 26
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.

Good but Big These are on the larger side as far as hip protectors go. Not only are they thicker than most but they also cover more of your hip. While more coverage is a good thing, if you don't have the extra room in your pants things may get a little tight. They fit perfectly in my Rev'It Philly jeans which have a large hip pocket. They also fit in my Scorpion Covert Pro jeans however the hip pocket was stretched to its max and they did not look very good with the cut of the pant. It looks very "womanly" with narrow waist and wide hips. I think the recommended Sas Tec hip pads would work better with this jean. August 6, 2015
Good Alternative to Seesoft These first perfect in my Rev'It Sand 2 pants. I purchased them because they Seesoft hip protectors seemed to never be in stock. The pocket is the right size, and they are comfortable both on and off the bike. August 4, 2015
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. July 27, 2015
Fits great in Klim Dakar pants I used these to replace the factory junk hip pads in my Klim Dakar pants. These breath great and slip right into the factory armor pockets. These are a bit thicker than the factory ones. Great product and great feeling wearing these. July 12, 2015
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. June 22, 2015
Decent protection for an often neglected area I put these hip protectors in my riding jeans with some easy DIY modifications to the stock pads pockets. They conform to the body and fit well, adding minimal extra bulk. Taking the original pockets as a reference, the pads are in their ideal location to protect the greater trochanter (the "bony" part of the hip) from a direct hit, but the area covered is not very large. June 8, 2015
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. January 23, 2015

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.

A shopper asked: 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? Mar 11, 2014

David C: 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. Mar 14, 2014

Mike L: 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. Aug 5, 2014

Patrick B: If it had to fit within a pocket, the pocket would have to be 7.5 inches from top to bottom, as shown in the picture, and 6.5 inches wide. They are a hair over a 0.5 inch in width. I used then over a week long ride just fitting snuggly, without being in a pocket, under my riding pants and did not have any problems or discomfort although this is not the ideal way to wear them of course.

Blake M: I did notice the dimensions in the description. In the photo, however, they appear longer than wider. I should have been more specific with my question, requesting the measurement for width and the measurement for height. Convention is width x height, but this may be a case where that is reversed (?). If they are, in fact, 7" X 9" they'll fit right in my JR Phoenix pants. Aug 8, 2014
Reply to Blake Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Keith M: Approximately 6.5" x 7.5x". If it's too big of course trimming is not difficult. Also some pants don't have armor pockets but instead have Velcro. In that case it's easy to just stick velcro on these. Aug 7, 2014

Tyler E: Sorry Jason; I am not familiar with your gear. That said, if your pants have pockets for hip pads, then these are likely to fit. To get an idea of the size of the pocket that is required, either refer to the dimensions of the product or have a look at the Forcefield ProAction Shorts, in which the hip pad pockets are clearly visible.

Bobby J: The dimensions, as depicted, are 7.25 inches tall(flat part to pointy part) and 6.25 inches wide(side to side). The whole armor pad is roughly 3/4 inch thick. I recommend removing the foam hip inserts of your pants(if equipped) and measuring them to verify fit. I use these with my tourmaster venture air pants with zero problems. Jan 16, 2014

Mike L: I bought the Forcefield Net Replacement armor for my Olympia Airglide 4 Jacket and Airglide 3 pants. The fit very well in both the jacket and pants. I think they are a little heavier than the standard foam Olympia armor but that is only noticeable when you are standing and walking, not when you are on the bike in the riding position. I forgot to order the replacement hip armor which I am doing today with the Forcefield 4 Layer Hip Armor. The Forcefield back protectors do not fit the Olympia jackets so with the help of Revzilla customer service I ordered the Rukka D30 Air Central Back Protector, which is a perfect fit in the Airglide 4 jacket. Similar to the Forcefield Net Armor the back protector is a little heavier which I don't notice when riding. All of this armor will also allow better air flow which is an added bonus over the increased protection. I recommend all of the above armor and Revzilla customer service. Jul 28, 2014
