Forcefield Net Flat Replacement Elbow/Knee Armor
Heavy but protective
This would not fit in my wife's medium jacket but did fit well in my icon overlord jacket. It's thicker and heavier than I thought but I feel it will do a better job than D3O armor.

Comfortable, quality upgrade
While I hope to never put these to the real test, I am impressed with the Forcefield shoulder, elbow and back protectors I recently bought. They fit perfectly into my Fox Creek Leather Vented Racing jacket, adding an extra level of protection without the uncomfortable stiffness of other protection options. Highly recommended.

Fit great in Klim Traverse Jacket
I hate d3o armor that comes in Klim jackets. So I went with a Traverse jacket and bought this armor with it. They are a direct fit for the elbow armor pockets. They are quite a bit larger and thinner. Much softer in all temps as well. Highly recommended for all d3o upgrades.

Haven't crashed with it, but it fits well
I have these in a pair of Scorpion Covert Jeans. The flat profile of them makes them brush up against my kneecap less than the manufacturer-recommended SAS-TEC pads when walking, but they are heavier and smellier. They curve around my knees just fine when I'm seated.

Armor... you know.
haven't needed it in a crash, and I went out on a limb ordering this, along with the CE2 shoulder and spine protection for my River Road Mesa jacket. These fit pretty well in the sewn mesh liner pockets, and will most likely do well to protect me in a crash. I haven't needed them, and hopefully won't.
No strange odor, or trimming necessary to make them fit in my jacket.
I like that they're cut to contour to the particular joint, and lay flat in the jacket, so you don't have pokey elbows like otherhard armor.
If i had to point out a downside, they're heavier than the stock foam pads that were included. With both elbows, shoulders and spine protectors installed in the jacket, it added probably 6-8 lbs to the jacket. Can't really feel it while wearing the jacket, and even if it did, I'd consider it worth it.

Armor has good flexibility to fit into knee pockets of Klim Dakar pants and fit them well. With a little bit of body warmth to loosen them up they became barely noticeable although I still think all in one armor under garments will still offer more protection at the cost of not being quite as comfortable. Feel adequately protected with this armor and the toughness of the Dakar pant. Liked how they conform around the knee when in a seated position. High quality protective gear is worth every penny. Those that ride only with a helmet ,maybe gloves can only be foolish. Ride smart!

Great knee armor upgrade
Stock pre-molded armor in my Tourmaster Venture Air pants was very uncomfortable and I ended just riding without it most of the time which defeats the purpose of having armor in the first place. The RevZilla.com staff recommended this flat armor and it has been just what I needed. Just finished a 3700 mile trip and this armor remained comfortable and pain free......can't comment on its protective abilities in a crash but the pads are solid and of good build quality! Seems like they would work well....

Great for textiles
Used these in a pair of kevlar jeans. More comfortable and less power ranger than hard armor. I didn't crash in them, but protection seems as good or better than the relatively inexpensive CE stuff it replaced.
