REV'IT! Seesoft Hip Protectors RV01
Not flexible, returned and replaced with Forcefield hip armor
I bought these to replace the foam hip armor that came in my Rev'it! Tornado pants. These were a tight fit in the hip armor pockets, but they did fit. The problem I had was that they did not bend in the direction necessary for hip armor. It felt like I had 3/4" thick plywood stuffed in my hip armor pockets. There was no way these would work for me. I returned them and replaced them with the Forcefield hip armor. The Forcefield armor was thicker, but much more flexible.

Tight Fit on Airwave Pants
I picked these up to add to my RevIt Airwave pants. Installation was -tight-. Where there was little work in securing the hook-n-loop (velcro) fasteners.
Once on, the pads are pretty transparent and don't feel like they are in the way or obstruct any movement.

Good not great
These fit right in the Rev'It Air Wave pants, and it's nice to have some fairly flexible hip protection for a really economical price.
After riding with these a while, for some reason they kept pinching on one hip. I tried to readjust the placement a few times, so I have to admit, it might just be that I didn't get them dialed in just right. But I got impatient and placed an order on Revzilla for the Forcefield hip protectors, based on my fantastic experience with their back protectors. Frankly I like those much better (comfortable and I think better padding).
So I think the Forcefield hip pads are worth the extra money if you can spring for them but they are double the cost-- so get these if you're watching the budget closely. Better than no protection by a long shot!

High quality hip-pad for added crash protection.
Added these hip pads to the Sand 2 pant, which didn't come stock with hip protection. The quality is great, and the fit is even better. They're sized to fit the hip protector pockets in the Sand 2 in a specific alignment, so you don't even feel them while wearing the pant.
I took a couple of spills in the Sand 2 with these hip protectors and they bounced me right back. For an extra couple of bucks, to not be rubbing your hips the next morning, it's well worth the additional purchase. For hips like mine that have taken quite a few slides over the years, it's a necessary product.
If you're reading this, then take my recommendation and buy them. If you're not in the market for hip protection, then you haven't learned your lesson and you're not reading this review.

Quality product, but....
Looks like a well made product that would provide good protection if needed, but in my case, they make the pants kind of stiff and a bit uncomfortable in the hips. I'm going to attribute that to my height (or lack thereof). YMMV.

Works perfect in Airwave Pants
I bought these for my Airwave pants. They work great and fit the pockets for them perfectly, They are light and flexible and I hardly notice them when they are in. They flow air well too.

Well made, a bit stiff but they do seem to get better after some use. Pockets in the pants for them are to small.

Just what I wanted.
I had purchased the pants separately and wanted to add the hip armor. The armor arrived and was exactly as described. It installed easily, fitting the pocket in the pants as intended. The armor is virtually unnoticeable when worn. I haven't crash tested the pants/armor yet, but I feel better having the armor installed. I would recommend this armor. Cheap insurance.
