Roland Sands CE Armor - Elbow
This armor fits the RSD Ronin pockets fairly well. The pockets on this jacket are a bit higher on the arm than many other jackets but the armor still covers the elbow. I think it works best with the widest end installed farthest away from the body. The armor is flexible enough that it is not really visible and it's comfortable.

Forcefield armor is legendary in its protectiveness and their collaboration with Roland Sands doesn't disappoint. The armor sits where it's supposed to sit and does a good job being unobtrusive. I have the elbow, shoulder and back armor in my Tracker Jacket and you can hardly tell there's armor in there at all.

When I ordered these, I was thinking only in protection, almost sure they would feel awkward inside the jacket. I couldn't have been more wrong. It feels great, won't limit your movements, and you really feel protected. Of the whole package I bought, this is for sure the best. Definitely recommended.

I got these to fit in the shoulders and elbows of an older First Gear Kilimanjaro jacket. They are the exact same size and shape as the original temper foam. (Which was just thin foam).
The Roland Sands armor has three inter-locking layers and is extremely light weight. Looks very well made. Over all very satisfied.

Best protectors for casual riding
Great designed armor to use in stylish motorcycle clothes.
Nestle comfortable around your elbow and is nearly not noticeable from outside.

I cannot fault the quality of this CE rated body armor. Great value for money and fits my Roland Sands Design Mission leather jacket perfectly.

Best armour I have used yet! Don't even know it is in the jacket. Really flexible and has already survived a crash. Thinking about buying more to put into other jackets I have.

Awesome add on protection
I bought these protectors to placed them in addition to tht built in protection in my Dainese carbon jacket. I placed Velcro inside the jacket and the Roland Sands armor for them not to move. The fit was great! Initially on my right arm they were tight but it only took a couple of rides for the jacket to give in. I wear them all the time since I didn't feel that the protection that the jacket provided was enough. Haven't tested them yet in a fall ( hopefully never) but having a full CE rated protector was very important for me. The main reason I chose this armor was by a recommendation on a video that Anthony with Revzilla provided. They are slim but they are very protective.
As far as breath ability since the plastic is against my skin I wear long sleeves ( no pocket provided in the Carbon jacket) and after a 2 hr ride yesterday at approx. 82 degrees they were fine no issues. I do reccommend them for this application.
