Forcefield Net Flat Replacement Elbow/Knee Armor
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.

Perfect fit with Klim Dakar 2014 Pants
Forcefield Net Flat Armor is an exact fit for the knee pocket in the 2014 Klim Dakar pant. There is zero movement in the pocket as the armor fits as though it was tailor made for these pockets. The pocket however, being attached to the inner liner, still has slight movement.
CE Level 2 protection that is thinner and allows greater air flow than the Klim D3O armor, can't go wrong.

Very flexible. Less bulky.
Bought this for my husband to use in his TourMaster Flex pants. He was having trouble with the tight fit around the knee area. After replacing the included knee armor with these Forcefields, his pants fit great. They are very flexible and it doesn't look like there's anything in the knees.

Forcefield replacement armor is quite impressive. It's very thin, flexible, comfortable to wear and most of the replacement pieces offer level 2 CE protection. So much better than any of the generic foam I've found in my various jackets or pants. At first I was a little skeptical because it feels soft and kind of spongy. However, after doing some testing by dropping to my knees on a hard surface I can feel how it absorbs much more impact energy than typical armor. I upgraded every piece possible after this purchase, knees, elbows, shoulders, hips and back.
