Forcefield Replacement Shoulder Armor
These were bought to replace the pads in a Speed and Strength Seven Sins medium size jacket. I measured the pockets before ordering to make sure they would fit. These pads are well built and even though they don't appear flexible at first glance, they are. I had to press the sides together to get them into the pockets. They are a definite improvement over the oem pads. I like Forcefield products.

I was expected something special when I ordered these at great expense in shipping to Australia and I'm sorry to report that I was massively let down by the hype generated by Forcefield products.
In short they offered slightly less protection than the stock inserts that came with my Icon Patrol Raiden jacket and overall they felt flimsy and weak. Yes, it has a lot of fancy honeycombing but it's really just gimmicky at best and not offering anything drastic in the way of protection.
Overall a complete waste of money and I'll probably try to resell them on eBay to someone who will appreciate them more than I will!

I have one jacket that came with armor and one jacket without armor. Got tired switching the armor back and forth so I bought these.
They fit in the pocket (Harley jacket) perfectly. Seem like they were custom molded for my shoulders.
The triangular pattern on the padding is very similar to the Harley armor but these are about twice as thick.
I will buy a set for the elbows next.

Amazing replacement for my Joe Rocket Sonic 2.0 armor
If you want a serious upgrade to any of the Joe Rocket foam armor, look no further. This is a serious upgrade to comfort and protection. Air flows through it really well and the padding on the inside conforms to your shoulder really well. The length of the armor covers more of the arm than the ones provided with the jacket. Can't go wrong with Forcefield!

Fits great and its flexible.
Bought this to replace the armor in my Scorpion HatTrick Jacket. Fits in the original armor pocket.
Doesn't feel that much different from the original foam armor, but I know it will hold up better in a crash (hopefully I never have to find out).

there are obnly two types of riders.
those that have been down, and those that will.
picked up this gear after researching what limited choices i found out there, and because i upgraded to a 2007 Kawasaki Z1000.
what i found why this product bets the rest -
1. It doesn't "reflect" hits, it absorbs impacts.
2. It works the same if you are 100 degrees or 20.
3. It can take MULTIPLE impacts to it and still be affective. <- seen a few friends wish they had this after a good roll on the street at 30+.mph.
4. solid construction.
Haven't tested the impact capabilities yet. But i thought my body is worth the upgrade for then\if i do.
Because racing is living. The rest of the time is just waiting.

The best replacement for my coat armor
I needed replacement armor for the shoulder and elbow pads in my jacket. The original pads had broken down but the jacket was in great condition. After researching the options for size compatibility and product quality/protection, the Forcefield pads seemed to be the best selection with the best ratings. I had hoped to give the idea to my family as a gift suggestion but they were not available at the time. Called Revzilla to determine availability who in tern called their distributor, while I was on the phone, to find out when I could order them. They appeared as in-stock items the beginning of February as projected and I placed an on-line order and received them two days later. The pads were exactly as desired in both quality and size. They also are better in quality and potential protection than the pads in another coat I have so anticipate switching them from coat to coat as necessary for riding. Only time will how much protection they provide but hope the need never arises.
