Forcefield 4-Layer Replacement Hip Armor
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.

Like my spine but for the hips.
Didn't get to use them thankfully.
Takes the shape of your body after a while, you don't feel them, they look like they'd do the job.
A bit pricey but not Rev's fault

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.
