Forcefield 4-Layer Replacement Hip Armor
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.

Feels like it will add much more protection than the stock armour in the pants I bought. Mould to hip well and aren't too bulky at all.

Will definitely protect your hips!
Anthony pretty much nailed the video on this one, not much else to add on top of the video. If you are looking to upgrade your hip padding in your riding pants, these are a great choice! I feel very safe wearing these! They are slightly thick so keep that in mind if your pants are a little tight around the hips.
In my opinion though, even if they do make your pants a little tight at the hips it's still definitely worth it! You are still getting an upgrade in protection! Can't put a price on that!

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.
