Forcefield Limb Tubes
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.

These fit under my jeans without looking too bulky. Wore them for a week long trip on and around the Blue Ridge Parkway and forgot I even had them on. I only used the bottom velcro strap to keep them from sliding down, the top strap was unnecessary.

Comfortable knee and shin protection
These provide comfortable knee and shin protection if straps are not adjusted too tightly. They fit well under regular pants including dress pants. They are not very bulky and remain hidden for the most part unnoticeable even when sitting unless one is looking close. I find it uncomfortable if I wear it off the bike and bend my knees more than 90 degrees the straps start to dig in under my knees, but that would rarely be a riding position, so I give these a good rating.

This is the most comfortable knee armor I have found! I found the size chart to be slightly off. According to it, I would have been a medium but decided to go with the small and they fit me perfectly. I don't use the bottom strap because it digs into my bony shin. Glad I found these! :)

Fits my needs perfectly
I bought these for added protection while riding in jeans. They work perfectly for this, at least in "regular" boot cut jeans. They're comfortable and easy to strap on. I've worn them all day at work without any issue.

It's force field armor...In a spandex tube.
I commute to work when the weather allows. Now while my works dress code isn't suits and ties wearing baggy jeans to hide knee protectors and other leg armor isn't exactly going to fly.
So based on the reviews I saw on revzilla and a very unhappy experiance with some SAS armor that came with my Draggin Jeans I decided to purchase these limb tubes.
They arrived today. They look exactly like they do in the picture and fit perfectly.
But (and there is always a but#...force field armor is pretty thick, their knee protection isn't much different from their elbow protector, and while the tube fits and the armor does stay in place the armor itself is much more bulky, not very flexible, and much more noticeable than I would like when worn under a pair of straight leg jeans.
I likely end up keeping this armor to wear over my jeans #the straps don't require spandex to be there) for my trips to work until I find something that better fits my needs.

Very Confortable yet protects all the way
Very very conformable, they stay in the same place all the time. I used them inside my trousers and sometimes I forget I'm wearing them. Great materials and construction.
