Forcefield Limb Tubes 4.4 5 52 52
Slightly Large Great quality, extremely confortable, easy to wash I bought them large and felt the fit slighly large, but medium was too small :s. Maybe I had this sizing issue because I'm a woman. They stay in place while riding and are not extremely bulky. I was able to use them under my pants, but they were noticeable. However, my husband tried them on and you coudn't tell he was using them.

Very Good product I've owned for a couple of months and can I say It´s a great product. you barely notice and is always in its place. Very comfortable. I Strongly recommend it. January 27, 2014
Saved My Knees & Skin! While commuting on the highway this past week I was hit by an SUV changing lanes. I was going 65mph at the time, hit the ground hard and slid for quite a while. THESE KNEE GUARDS SAVED MY LEGS. The front of my 600d cordura pants (especially in the knees) were torn to shreds, but my knees were not even bruised. I got these to replace the slip-in knox knee armor in my textile pants. There's little doubt in my mind that the slip-ins that were replaced would not have done half as good a job. The forcefield's tube design and adjustable velcro straps make them very secure. The best part of these are their compact size. My other strap-on knee guards (icon field armor) are too long and go quite a few inches into my riding boots. These stop just abouve the boot and while they do take a second to put on under or over pants, they are very comfortable. Remember, the best gear is the gear that you'll actually wear!

Awesome knee pads!!! These knee pads are just awesome! Very easy to put on and breath really well in the hot weather under some pants. They don't slip or fall down when standing or riding. You feel very protected while having these on. Sometimes I don't even feel like they are on when riding! I've had them for at least a couple of months and they are very durable so far. It's now starting to get colder and they definitely help with the wind in the morning because I don't feel any kind of chill going to my knees. This is a great product and very satisfied with this product!! October 24, 2013
Good choice for daily commuters and people just tooling around town These are cool. The fit well, much better than anything else I have tried. The Velcro does get fuzzy after about 10 uses but these are still good knee protection. They are not hard plastic so they flex when you bend your knees and they stay put when riding (no slipping down your leg). I would not recommend them for high speed riding or track days. I think you would need something harder. I think the price could be a bit better but over all I feel they are the best choice for knee protection for me so far. September 30, 2013
Meh. Not bad in a pinch Honestly not that big a fan, here. The overall protection is adequate, but after riding for a couple of hours, the material absorbs some moisture behind the knee and begins to bind. I find it very breathable and comfortable for the first 2 hours, but after that it is really distracting. Good for a quick ride, if you're not forgoing safety and not wearing riding pants. Fits fairly well under a pair of jeans. The universal fit (not left or right fitted) is convenient in a rush, but not as comfy for long rides. I bought these knee pads as a novice, and now have a pair of Drake Air Textile pants from Dianese. September 1, 2013
Great companion with kevlar jeans... I initially did not care for these when I first received them. I expected the shell to be harder, however I think it goes well with my slider jeans. Pros: Great knee coverage. Pulls over the knee with adjustable velcro straps. Doesnt obstruct movement. Better than not having anything at all. Price point. Cons: Armor is a bit flimsy August 29, 2013
Two words: they work I was looking for knee protection that I can wear during the sizzling Florida summers. I have had them for almost a month now, and I can't vouche for their protection as of yet. They are so comfortable under my corduroys, I almost forget to take them off when I get to work. They have superb ventilation. With the velcro straps, they are slightly adjustable. Sadly, I am at the small end of "medium" or maybe the large end of "small", so they tend to slide down a little over time, even with the velcro as tight as I can make it. I don't think I could trust them for more than in-town riding. August 8, 2013

A shopper asked: How long are these? I'm wondering approximately how much of the shin they will cover. Aug 11, 2013

Mike D: The armor measuring from the center of my knee cap up protects 41/2 in. From the same point of the center of my knee cap down it protects 7 in down my shin. So about half your upper shin is protected. I wear my old Supertech race boots with these under my jeans so they cover the rest. I've tried other protectors that cover more of the shin and found they are uncomfortable, and found myself not wearing them as often as I should have so it's a trade off...comfort over some areas of protection. Aug 12, 2013

Paul D: I wear 36" length jeans and I measure 10.5" from the ankle to the bottom of the protector as being exposed, and 7.5" from the center of the knee cap to the bottom of the protector as being covered.
The limb tubes are slightly longer than other soft-armor brands I own (S&S-TECH) and not as long as hard-armor that comes in track suit.
They are very comfortable and work great under Kevlar jeans.

Stephen L: The limb tubes cover about 5 inches of shin. They are compact enough to wear under regular jeans (not skinny jeans though). I also have the Forcefield Extreme Harness Flite which again is a lower profile armor than my normal riding suit. I also wear the Harness Flite when horseback riding. Forcefield products are well constructed. Aug 16, 2013

A s: I have a set, size medium. They're approximately 13" in length total. They armor measures approximately 10.5" in length. When worn, they cover about 1/3rd to 1/2 of my shin. Essentially they cover the unprotected area left by my race boots Aug 12, 2013

Min Hee K: i am 5'5 & bought the S. i would say my forcefields cover 3/4 of the leg area from my knee down. measuring, there is 5 inches of unshielded shin area between my ankle bone & the bottom of the forcefield. Aug 13, 2013

Esther C asked: Is it possible to wear over your pants if you wear very tight pants? I wear kevlar skinny jeans when riding. Feb 3, 2014
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
Min Hee K: I usually wear these under a particular pair of riding pants & they are comfortable. As for wearing over your skinny jeans, sure, it can be done, but perhaps go up a size since you have to slide these babies on & when bending the knee, you have to take into account the slight bunch created by your pants. You don't want to ride around with a rubber band tightness about your knees especially if you ride longer distances. If I were you, I would opt for Dainese or Fox brand knee & shin armor that goes on with a few straps (versus sliding on) for a better fit over jeans. Feb 3, 2014

Stephen L: Yes. The backside of the tubes are made of very flexible fabric material which should allow you to wear them over close fitting clothing. The tubes are secured by elastic straps fastened with velcro both above and below the knee. Feb 3, 2014
Reply to Stephen Good answer? Yes (0) No (0)
Cy S: It is certainly possible. You would probably find it easier to slide them up the pant legs BEFORE you put the pants on though... and then adjust them into place. Otherwise, the elastic will bunch the pants up at the bottom... Feb 3, 2014

Luis N: Yes!. But I usually wear them (under the pants). It will be somehow difficult to get them over the pants but very possible. Feb 3, 2014

A shopper asked: The sizing chart for the "Limb Tubes" doesn't really help with picking the right size. They come in 3 sizes but the chart just says arms and legs sizes. How can i size my knee area to get the right size.

Floyd: These are "one size fits all," with a lycra/cordura material allowing them to stretch to different size arms and legs. While there are different sizes listed for purchase, the sizing is for different applications, not generally for different people. If using for elbows, buy small; if using for knees, buy large. Medium is for the elbows of large humans and the knees of tiny humans. You'll know who you are if you need to buy mediums. I am 5'11'' 160 and the large works well for me on knee and shin - I can't imagine a medium fitting other than youth or very petite women. Apr 15, 2012

RevZilla: While Forcefield does supply a size chart for the Limb Tubes, we do not find it to be the most accurate reference and prefer to go by the standards of "average", "above average" and "below average." The limb tubes have a good deal of adjustment to fit a wide variety of knees and elbows. Jun 7, 2012

EPrider: I'm a 5'3" female, and the mediums fit my knees snugly. (I'm a cyclist though, so I have muscley legs.) Since you're a guy, I'd probably go with the Large for knees, unless you're a string bean. Apr 3, 2012
