Forcefield 4-Layer Replacement Hip Armor
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!

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.

Replacement armor in Revit Tornado Pants
Great alternative armor to the OEM foam and even the seasoft RevIt alternative. The forcefield armor only just fits in the Revit pants, but does provide an added feeling of protection with the size. Recommend.

Repeat Impact Protection
When replacing all my armor after my last accident, I was looking to not have to do that the next time. This stuff looks and feels like it will stand up to the manufacturer's claim.

It feels good in the hand. Looks like it would be easy to cut, but I didn't have to do it. They fit in my Alpinestars pants.

Flexible, good coverage
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.

Great product. I purchased it for my Rev It Tornado pants.
The pads are well made, thick, and the design seems good. They run a little larger and thicker than the pads that came with the Tornado pants. You can expect a slight loss of comfort because of this and the rigidity of the pads but its no big deal. I like the peace of mind and I know a guy who broke his hip in a simple low sider because he was not protected.

I'm astonished that these fit!
Before I buy anything, I always check out reviews, to see what I'm getting into.
I was recommended these by CS rep Tony, as I sorely needed a replacement to the foam "armor" in the hip pockets of my REV'IT Turbine pants (sz 34).
Tony said these were awesome, with is what the other reviewers said. Good start. However, the sizing was a tight fit. Me being a petite woman, had much difficulty fitting these bad boys into my slim hip pockets. Overall, they were snug but really comfortable.
