SAS-TEC Hip Armor Review
Bought these to put in my new Scorpion covert jeans. Fits in the jeans ok, not very noticeable when you have them in. Once they warm up from body heat they are very soft. Not many holes for ventilation and pretty big (think taller than a can of coke, the photos don't really show scale). Seem decently protective, much better than just hip padding.

Good hip armor. Not bulky.
I bought this armor for my Revit Poseidon pants, which have special made pockets for it. This armor is thin but effective, and is unobtrusive when wearing the pants. Good stuff.

SAS-TEC of good quality
Got the SAS-TEC replacement hip armour to fit into my REV'IT Cayenne Pro pants which only shipped with foam inserts in the hip pockets.
I must say I love the SAS-TC armour as it is really comfortable and relatively soft. Since I liked the knee armour a lot I ordered the hip armour as well and I wasn't disappointed. I hope I never have to put the durability to the test but the fitted the hip pockets perfectly and I don't feel them there any more than the foam inserts. I highly reccommend this product.

Fits Scott Dual Raid TP
Fits in easily, and stays in place. Very thin, but obviously protective.

Better than foam
I purchased this product as an upgrade on the existing foam that was suppose to protect my hip. The material is fantastic, and I cant feel it is there. It is however very small, I would like to see a bigger option to cover a greater area if needed. I know they are made for specific pocket sizes, but being rubber they can easily be cut to shape. I did this with my back protector upgrade.
Give it a try, they're cheap where hips and backs are not...

Best protection out there
Soft and flexible normally, but stiffens when an pressure is applied. Perfect!

A small price to pay for protection.
After surviving a 40 mph low-side with only a hip bruise, adding hip armor to my replacement riding pants was a top priority. This armor fit into the existing pockets of my non-REV'IT pants perfectly.
They add protection without affecting the fit and comfort of the pants. I hope that I don't have to test them but it's cheap insurance against injury if I experience another get-off.
