Forcefield Limb Tubes
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.

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!!

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.

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.

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

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.
