Klim D3O T5 EVO Pro XT Replacement Shoulder Pads
Hoping I never have to find out just how good these are....
I fit them in the shoulders of my Joe Rocket mesh jacket without difficulty, just measured the original foam armor that came with the jacket.
Although the overall weight of the jacket is increased ( I also put in D3O elbows and a SAS-Tac back - see my SAS-Tac back review if you want) I do not notice it except as as side note when putting on or taking off the jacket.

I am retofiting an Olympia Mesh jacket with all new protection. P3
The Shoulder Pads are exact fits for the jacket pockets int he jacket. As the D3o material heats up it conforms to your contours, which took a little getting used to. The pads don't catch and spin in their pockets like the OEM pads did.
Really the piece of mind is all that matters.

Why skimp on less than Klim quality for shoulder pads?
Funny how the Turtle-brand body armor in my Speed and Strength Twist of Fate mesh jacket disintegrated over a few years. As both the elbow and shoulder pads are usually not visible, it was a real surprise to recently discover that they had all cracked and/or crumbled. In considering replacements, the Klim T5 Pro D3O Shoulder Pads seemed like a significant upgrade from the original ones. They fit great, although, honestly, I don’t notice them being lighter or more comfortable than the original pads. As they can potentially make such a huge difference in the event of a crash, though, the reasonable price I paid for the superior level of protection they provide was a no-brainer investment.

These are great replacement armour. I bought the elbow and shoulder sets. They are bigger than my old armour but you can definitely tell these will do a better job in case you fall.
I had to bring them to my tailor to have pockets made with Velcro on the back so that they can be used in my old jackets. I wish they would sell that as an option.
Very happy with this purchase.

Excellent product, better than the original
I ordered the shoulder pads to replace the pads that had deteriorated in my Dri Rider jacket. They have made the jacket slightly heavier but the new Klim pads are more robust and give me a greater feeling of protection. I would recommend them as the way to go for replacement pads.

Get this stuff!!!
I purchased these to replace my existing padding in my Dririder jacket. The fit is amazing, so comfortable. As the vids online show I curved it over my fingers and went off with a hammer. I really laid into the padding way hard enough to smash my hand flat. Sure there was pressure but it was Massively reduced. I also did this with the existing foam padding in the jacket and just hurt myself. Get this stuff its amazing!!!
