Forcefield 4-Layer Replacement Hip Armor
A must have upgrade
I bought these to replace the foam hip pads in my Rev'it! tornado pants. They fit with no trimming. As typical forcefield armor goes, it's stiff when you first put your pants on but after it warms up and contours to your hips you barely even know they're there. The only downside for some is that,depending on your riding position, the new pads might make it a little uncomfortable to have anything in your front pant pockets. For any safety conscious rider out there this is a must buy!

This armor feels like it will provide much more protection than the standard armor fitted in my gear. It's also more comfortable.

Comfortable, lightweight great protection.
The outstanding feature of this product, is it's flexibility and light weight. They also are cut in an interesting way which I believe helps with there overall comfort. The hip area is a vulnerable impact zone. I found that Most hip armor on the market is either to flimsy or to stiff and bulky. These hip protectors are incredibly comfortable and appear to give significant protection. Once I inserted them into my riding pants the first thing I noticed was how unobtrusive they were. Could not feel that they were there. I am very much concerned about my hip armor because of an injury I sustained during a get off. I would strongly recommend these hip pads

Big improvement over thin foam typically found in racing suits
This armor appears to be quite dense and firm. However, as it warms up next to my body, it conforms to my hips and is comfortable to wear. I have been wearing the armor under compression shorts. The pads stay correctly positioned and don't cause my suit to be significantly tighter through the hips and seat. I hope I never find out personally, but it appears that this armor should reduce hip injury by absorbing and distributing the energy of impact during a fall.

I bought these as replacement armor for my temperfoam hip pads in my compression shorts. These armor pads have substance and actually feel like they might do something in a crash. I haven't had any comfort issues, and forget that they are there as I'm riding -- which is exactly what I want.

Replaced factory original
While a bit bulkier as compared to SAS-Tech, and certainly the factory original foam that shipped with my Rev'It Gear pant, the increased protection afforded may well offset the increased bulk and non-exact OEM fit.
