Held up great on the fwy....when i crashed.
Last Saturday i was rear ended on the fwy by another rider supposedly avoiding a car. We both went down. Limping, scratched (other rider. Not i. He was in a tank; i was in leathers), bumped n bruised. Hobbled off the fwy and began assessing the damage. Never even occurred to me to look at my knees, as they didn't hurt. Turns out...my left knee took a banging, but another rider had to point it out. Eventually a bruised formed, but nothing mayor. We crashed @ approximately 30 mph. If it wasn't for these guards, my left knee would have been in serious trouble.These guards absorbed the impact so well, i didn't even know i had landed on my left knee. The guards stayed in place too. I'm 5'3, 115 and was wearing a medium. Good job forcefield. Good job indeed. Will buy again.

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!

If you ride in jeans...get knee armour.
First...sizing...here are my "sexy leg" measurements.
Mid to lower thigh area: 46cm
Knee joint(over knee cap): 37cm
Widest part of my calf: 37.5cm
I have a medium and it fits perfect. The fit is on the tighter side(that's how I wanted it), where the stretch fabric of the tube is just stretching around my calf and thigh. If your measurements are close but smaller, then mine, get a medium. If your any large than 2-3cm, I would get a large. You can use your own judgement.
Ok, the goods... solid CE protection, fits awesome, comfortable, barely detectable under kevlar jeans when standing and walking. In the tuck, the soft stretch is super comfy and the flex of the armour is unrestricting. The best part is, when on the bike and my knees are pressed against the tank you still get a great contact feel with the bike.
If you ride in jeans...get knee protection.

Saved my knee.
I recently had a rather violent and high speed high-side.

To give you an idea of the impact forces: I went down face, shoulder and knee first on my right hand side. I ended up with a concussion, and a torn shoulder ligament (the shoulder slider on my Dainese jacket was pretty much obliterated).

Damage to my knee? Zilch. Not even a tiny bruise to show for it!

These aren't the most comfortable armor, it took me a while to get used to riding with them as they can restrict your movement. They do however flow enough air, and seem to deal with sweat well enough.

The minor trade-off in comfort was well, well worth it though.

Not really for everyday use
I'm a daily commuter, and Ive been working at losing weight, so I bought these hoping to save some cash until my weight stabilizers, and I can get into some Kevlar jeans. I have mixed feelings. On the plus side, they're easy to get on, fit easily under my baggy jeans and flow air just fine. On the negative, the velcro sticks to anything it touches and is fraying the material badly - I don't think they'll hold together for another 3 months. Also, they have a tendency to move around quite a bit during city riding (constant gear changes, seat adjustments, etc) so I don't feel confident they'd stay in place if I come off the bike.

All in all, probably OK for occasional use, and it's better to have them than not, but I might try something else next time.

Bang for the buck just isn't there for me
These are comfortable enough under my riding pants when riding and did the job when a friend high sided in rocks wearing them. The protection is excellent if they are in the right place when you go down. Unfortunately, I find the pre-shaped pad uncomfortable standing or off the bike and the tubes don't stay in place well. Therefore, to me, they are not worth anything like what they cost. I don't doubt the Forcefield armor is good. But the reason my friend was wearing them is that I went back inexpensive MX knee guards because they are more comfortable on and off the bike, have better coverage and stay in place better. I am disappointed in these primarily because of the very high price when my knee armor costing half as much works better for the dual sport riding I do. Armor doesn't work unless you are wearing it and I find these to be more trouble than they are worth for the very high price relative to other types and brands. They are hardly perfect as the advertisement says.

Nice Concept
Getting dressed in harmony with the character of retro bikes is not an easy task, if you also care about protection. There are lots of motorcycle garments with various degrees of nostalgic touch in their design but nostalgia and contemporary protection do not mix easily. Very protective garments are also too technical for riders of retro bikes.

These limb tubes address to this dilemma quite successfully. Since they can be worn under motorcycle jeans (or any pants w/o knee armor), they are not visible. Therefore, there is no concern on how they look, provided that the pants in question are not particularly tight at the legs. As for how protective they are; they seem to be as protective as invisible armor can be. I would not like to depend on them for racing but even professional racers of a few decades ago would probably prefer them to what was integrated to their racing suits, then. The armor itself is serious stuff and the way it stays put seems to be firm enough. IMHO, they would not twist or slide so easily during a crash.

They are more comfortable than I was expecting them to be. I can even forget them during long rides. They remind me of themselves once I am off the bike but this is not an annoyance, provided that I sit down. When I stand upright or walk, their lower edges slightly press on my lower leg bones. I wouldn’t describe this as pain but just as nuisance. In fact, I never felt the need to remove them, even for long hours off the bike, when I knew that I would ride again the same day. I reckon this slight pressure when upright is a small price to pay against the protection they seem to provide during the ride.

They are well ventilated. I normally sweat like a pig but under my motorcycle jeans, they didn’t annoy even me. My knees probably would sweat if I had leather pants or chaps on them but in this case, the blame would be on leather.

I never put my leg on my bike w/o them since I got them last month and I never will. After about 2000 km (1250 miles) with them, I feel they are comfortable and they seem to be reasonably protective. In my book, they do fit the bill.

Better Protection For The Joints
Good: These limb tubes do not slide or budge from their position, so when you fall you can expect that they will keep protecting that joint. I have a set for the knees and elbows and wear them under blue jeans and pseudo leather jackets. They breathe pretty well, i don't seem to sweat in them at all unless i am standing still in the sun. They don't bulge out of any of my clothes except when i wear slightly tighter jeans. very good if u don't wanna look funny wearing pads around a mall.

Bad: For wearing on the knees, the bottom of the pad digs into the shin when standing strait and walking. (totally fine and comfortable when riding because the knees are bent).

The tube itself is kinda cheap. It is like spandex. I can totally see it ripping to shreds in the washing machine someday or only surviving one nasty fall. If you're handy, i suggest buying the pads and making your own sleeve.

Sizing: I bought 1 medium for the knees and 1 small for the elbow. I use the small on the knee and fabricated my own tube for the elbow and slipped in the pad. Look carefully at the sizing chart and remember to get a tight fit! not a perfect fit! Keep in mind that the tube material is like spandex and stretches. Like buying socks, they have it for sizes 5-10 and 10-14. if you're a size 10 you might want the 5-10 so they don't slide.

Pads for the small and the medium are the same size, the difference is with the tube/sleeve.

Good Knee Protection
I wear these under my jeans everytime I ride. They are pretty comfortable and I feel safer having some knee protection when I ride. The tube is pretty adjustable with velcro straps. They have good CE knee protection but no protection on the side of the knee. I could also see using these while snow boarding. Good product.

No More Naked Knees!
Nothing compares to riding with a proper pair of armored leather riding pants - but there are times when I just want to throw on a pair of riding jeans to head to work or bop around town. I never felt like the foam inserts that slip into the knee pockets of my riding jeans were going to help much - they move around way too much.

So I decided to give these Forcefield Limb Tubes a shot. They are designed to be worn directly on your legs / under your riding pants. I wore them this past Sunday during almost 5 hours of riding. I also left them on as I walked around the car show for an hour. After 5 minutes on the bike you barely know they're on your legs. They stay securely in place and flow plenty of air (they weren't even sweaty at the end of the day). I was surprised at how comfortable they are. Best of all, I feel confident having Forcefield technology on my knees.

Sizing - I'm 5'11" / 175, size Medium fits perfectly. I originally got Large by mistake (easy return! :) ) and they were huge.

I have creaky knees and had several surgeries on left one. I have an old (perfectly decent) set of knox knee protectors but they're at least 10 yrs old and straps don't always hold. I want to put on knee protectors under my pants and these will fork for that.
xxxxxx on Nov 25, 2015
These things are great peace of mind and I am sure they protect well, the problem is taking the time to put them on under your jeans. For guys its not that big of a deal, but my girl can only wear certain types of jeans that are loose. Overall great for safety, but we honestly do no take the time to put them on every time.

JD D on Sep 10, 2015
Needed something for under my normal clothes, and these look like they'll do the job!
Chipster on Sep 7, 2015
I chose this because it forces the protection to stay in one place. Unlike a jacket or pants, the pads don't move left and right so you know that when you hit the ground (hopefully not) they will be directly over the joints you need them to be over. I recommend going for a small fit because this elastic material inst very tight. I use a size small on the knees and am about 5'7" 170lb slim not skinny.

My Forcefield pro pants are great but you have to take your overpants off to put them on/ take them off. These limb tubes are great for commuting to work as I can just slip them on/off at my desk and provide a great level of knee/shin impact protection.
F S on Jun 25, 2015
being 5'5" 34w I am yet to have found a pair of riding pant that fit , so I turned to these , my friend swear by them , so I took his recommendation , I also followed the recommended sizing ,ordered a large which is too big, am retuning to get a medium , i wish i read more reviews so i would order it medium to begin with.

Because I need further protection than my Kevlar reinforced motorcycle jeans can offer but I do not want to use exterior knee armors. The stealth nature of these limb tubes seem to be just the right compromise for me between looks and protection.

Michael f on Sep 21, 2014
I purchased a pair of Rokker Revolution pants, and while they do include armor I wasn't happy with the placement of the knee armor. The armor included with the Rokker's are in perfect position when on the bike in riding position, but would likely slide down and provide shin protection, rather than knee protection, in a get-off. So these seemed to fit the gap in protection I was looking for, as well as the warm weather comfort I wanted also.

merc16 on Dec 10, 2015
How long are these? I'm wondering approximately how much of the shin they will cover.
A shopper on Aug 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Is it possible to wear over your pants if you wear very tight pants? I wear kevlar skinny jeans when riding.
Esther C on Feb 3, 2014
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does large size has a knee specific shape and small size is elbow specific? What if I want to order small size for knee: will I get the elbow limb tubes which I should fit to my knees?
Alexander K on Feb 26, 2014
BEST ANSWER: No they are not specific to knees or elbows but over time the mold to your body shape and fit nicely.
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.

Thank,
MD
A shopper on Feb 10, 2012
BEST ANSWER: 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.
Does this come as a pair, or a single tube?
Samuel F on Mar 22, 2014
BEST ANSWER: These come as a pair. Light and comfortable to wear.
Hello,

Can these be worn over jeans/pants? Or are these meant to be worn under them?
A shopper on Jun 24, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I think trying to hold down the jeans' leg while simultaneously pulling up the limb tube sounds like an exercise in frustration.

These fit very tightly on me and seems like the jeans material, bunched up under the tubes, would become very uncomfortable very quickly, especially if you're sitting instead of standing. And if the tubes aren't tight enough to bunch up the jean fabric, I would wonder how well they'd stay in place in a crash.

I do use these for trials and love them for that.
Can these be used for mx?
A S on Jul 23, 2015
BEST ANSWER: I don't recommend you to use that without an articulated knee brace! If you want to use them below, that will be just fine!
