SAS-TEC Replacement Hip Armor
The best protection you can buy!
I bought this to fit the hip pockets of my Scott Dual Raid TP pants. They fit perfectly into the pants and go totally unnoticed. They are about as thick as your normal foam hip pads, but the protection is second to none.
I've never gone done on a bike, but I'm confident knowing I have the best protection money can buy.

Love This Product...
I got these to replace the Hip armor that came with my new Ranger 3 pants. The pads fit right in the pocket without even taking the original ones out, Talk about comfy! I don't even feel them but I feel better knowing that they are there providing the extra protection. I plan on replacing the hip pads on all of my pants with these.

That Additional Protection
I ordered the SAS-TEC replacement hip armor when I purchased REV'IT! Defender GTX Pants for additional protection. The only negative aspect in my view was that the armor felt slightly big and it comes at a slight sacrifice of comfort. Regardless, you should definitely get these for the additional protection. A significant improvement compared to the stock/flimsy protection that the REV'IT! Defender GTX Pants comes with.

Fits very well and feels soft. Is the same size as the bmw rally pants.

Simple upgrade, good value!
Installed these pads in REVIT riding pants to replace standard foam pads. Simple installation and completely transparent in every way in terms of fit and comfort. I hope to never find out how well they actually work........ Assuming they live up to billing I think they are a good value.

Great hip armor
I love playing with this armor. It's almost as soft as jelly when subject to day-to-day loads/strain rates. Smash this stuff with a hammer (or any sort of 'impulsive' load) while supporting the edges in a frame and you can really observe the hardening of the material in its response -- Cool!
To boot, this armor is relatively comfortable when seated on my hips. Based upon word-of-mouth and my haphazard playing around with this stuff, I venture that it'll do as good of a job protecting my hips as can be hoped in the event of a gnarly moto accident.

Hip armor employed as chest armor in my Alpinestars jacket
Alpinestar's one-size-fits-all Bionic chest pads did not fit into their size-small Frontier Jacket. Apparently the Bionic chest pads are one-size-doesn't-fit-small.
I ordered the SAS-TEC hip armor after watching Anthony's armor video and checking out sizing on SAS-TEC's website. The SAS-TEC hip armor is very close in size and shape to the useless foam inserts that come standard in the Frontier jacket's chest pad pockets. So far, this SAS-TEC hip armor is working great in the role of chest armor for my Frontier.

A great option.
Fits snuggly in my REVIT Women's Ventura Pants. Comfortable protection.
