Forcefield 4-Layer Replacement Hip Armor 4.9 5 17 17
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! November 7, 2014
Solid protection 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. November 4, 2014
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. July 7, 2014
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. April 21, 2014
Great quality 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. March 22, 2014
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. March 18, 2014
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. February 6, 2014
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. I'm impressed. October 15, 2013

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.

Rebecca C: Yes, they are sold as a pair. Once you get them they are clearly marked as to Left and Right sides. Just be sure the insert pockets on your pants are large enough to fit them. I put them into women's Rev'It pants and had to do some alterations to make them fit. Jul 8, 2014

Blake M asked: I also am trying to replace the worthless padding (bunches up) in my Joe Rocket Phoenix 3.0 pants. Could someone please post the dimensions (width x length) of these pads so we can determine if they'll fit with or without trimming? Thanks in advance... Aug 2, 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.

Ryan I: Dimensions are posted in the description, 9"x7". There's no hard plastic so they should be easy to trim. Aug 6, 2014
Reply to Ryan Good answer? Yes (1) No (0)
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

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

Daniel H: No, they do not. However, I was in the same situation for my Tourmaster Centurion. I just added some sticky back Velcro to the hip armor and it holds up fine. Mar 11, 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

John C: Not sure about the Revit pants but they fit my Airglide 3 pants with no problem. They are very comfortable.

PAUL M: They are a strange shape but it works. I use them in some BMW and tourmaster pants. They are a little thick but much more flexible than my standard pads.It is made of three waffled pads loosely sewn together so they can flex better and still offer thick protection. Sep 18, 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
