Forcefield Zeus Knee Protectors
Comfortable and stays in place
I ordered these knee protectors because I don't like the ones that come in any riding pants. The knee pockets are always in not quite the right place, and they aren't held in place near the knee, so who knows whether they will protect me or not.. The Zeus knee protectors stay in place, fit well under jeans, and are as comfortable as knee pads can be. Add a pair of kevlar armored shorts, and you can wear regular denim jeans ans still maintain a decent level of protection.

Forcefield Knee Protectors
Returned the Large for a Medium. Large size is a bit too big, plus most stretchy things get looser over time and repeated wear.
The rubble rondle logo sewn on the kneecap interfered with pulling on riding pants so they were removed with a razor.
The product was comfortable on a recent all day dual sport ride on 130 miles of USF roads. Knee protectors were warn over MX stockings and under Klim Mohave mesh riding pants.
Superior comfort in comparison to rigid knee/shin protectors, kinetic performance yet to be tested.

Top line protection and very good comfort!
I am a dual sport rider and needed to replace my older knee pads. Since I wear MC boots no need for a shin guard but I wanted a good slide on/strap on design to ensure the pads stay in place. Hot riding also calls for good ventilation.
These fit well and I find them comfortable, and they stay in place. I measured at the upper edge of "medium" size and the fit is perfect. In almost all other gear...I would be a 'large" - measure and buy per the size chart.
About 90% of the time they are under MC specific riding pants but these are low profile enough to wear under loose leg jeans for the times I ride a bit in street pants. I did remove the knee cap rubber logo so the pants "slide" over the knee area easier - carefully cut stitches with a razor blade.
Quality of construction/workmanship and materials all are top line. This is a higher price point than my previous pads and I can feel and see the difference. I wear these with KLIM combat undershorts normally and the combination provides IMO a good level of protection with good comfort when wearing mesh MX pants.
After 90 days of use...I am glad I bought them and fully recommend.

Bought some KLIM Dakar pants recently and the CE pads I bought for them moved around way too much to be safe. The cut around the knee area was too generous to hold a slip in pad in one place without shifting all over. This is a perfect fix for that problem. These knee pads are light, have great armor, and I like the honeycomb design of the armor which vent a bit. They are not perfect against your skin so I cut the toe out of a couple of tube socks and pull them up over my knee to wear under these pads. Other than that, no complaints.

top of the line
If you're looking for protection minus the pants, this is it. Top of the line protection, adjustable, and comfortable. More than I wanted to spend but the ability to wear with anything in my closet makes up for that.

Comfortable (so far)
I bought these due to a "spare tire" negating any chance at all to fit into remotely armored leather motorcycle pants. I'll be wearing them under a pair of "jean fit" thick cowhide leathers.
Measured my knees per the sizing chart and was in the upper range of medium. They fit juuust right. There was no sign of rough seams or anything that would irritate the skin.
Due to it still being Winter, on the first day of Spring, I have only worn them around the house for a few hours. I had to adjust them once due to repeated sitting/standing.

Hit after hit, total protection. Great low profile protection.
Hit after hit, total protection. Great low profile protection. Knees feel fresh after 20 takes (Although the muscles might be sore by then! )

Overall a good buy
-Well fixed on knee
-Side panels for added protection
-Useless ruber logos sowed that add to bulkness
