Great product Love the armor it's so lightweight and comfortable that I wear the jacket even when not riding July 6, 2015
A great armor upgrade I have owned a jacket with "CE approved" armor for a few years now, but it has always bothered me greatly, what with its strange foam bits and a back protector that is as worthless as wearing an egg carton. This armor set definitely puts me more at ease, being flexible without compromising rigidity. It's a bit thicker than some of the armor I've seen, but I haven't come across an armor set that I would feel more confident about in this price ball-park. I am quite glad that I read reviews and went with the Roland Sands full kit (I got the option sized for women). I imagine this product will be with me for many years to come. June 22, 2015
Super quality!Excellent protection! Purchased for use in the Roland Sands Ronin jacket, Fit very well. Seems to be quality armor. Hope I never put it to the test though... May 20, 2015
For use with RSD Clash I swapped the shoulder & elbows for the Clash jacket and it seems to be working fine. I didn't even attempt to put the designated elbow & shoulders in their respective areas. The quality of the armor is excellent as is every RSD product. I like how the armor is three separate layers that are not completely fused together so they flex very nicely and breathe but still provide CE2 impact protection which I have not tested. May 18, 2015
Great LIghtweight Armor I used this in my RSD Clash Jacket. I can barely tell the armor is inside. I definitely needed the elbow armor. The last time I went down I hit the asphalt at about 70mph and had to get an operation to reconnect my triceps tendons to my elbow. If I damage it again I will not be able to use it. I haven't crashed with my new jacket yet. If I survive my next crash I'll leave another review. April 14, 2015
Low profile armor This armor is surprisingly low profile - especially in the shoulders. March 30, 2015
Works well for me Happily, I haven't had to use these yet but they fit well on me. I know there are other reviews that complain about the pads sliding around. I don't think that is a problem with the pad itself as the pads fit securely in the pockets of my RSD Ronin jacket. I think people are really having problems with where the pockets of the jacket line up on their bodies. I can feel the pads in the jacket when I wear it but you can hardly see them. The back protector is noticeably visible, I remove it when I'm not riding. March 30, 2015
Good product. Better than my Harley Davidson armor. These seem to have 1 additional layer of protection. February 16, 2015

Eric M: I have the RSD Rocker and was baffled why armor didn't come with the jacket originally but having said that .. i purchased a generic pad set from Amazon that cut to fit and frankly it was okay but not s great fit for my rocker jacket. the RSD armore set gave the jacket more flexibility in arm movements and quality for the armor kit. It's the finer details that perhaps is worth paying a bit more for the pads. Apr 12, 2014

Karl B asked: I bought the RSD Clash jacket and this armor kit. My question is the regarding the installation of the elbow and shoulder pads.

According to Revzilla and RSDs website: The elbow pads are larger than the shoulder pads.
The thing is the larger elbow pads don't fit very well in the elbow location.
Those bigger pads fit better in the shoulder position.
The smaller shoulder pads fit well in the elbow location.

I watched this video on youtube and in it the guy switches the locations too. Search "Roland Sands Design ForceField Armor" on youtube to watch the video.

I want to know: should I really insert the bigger elbow pads into the elbow location or are the products mislabeled or something else.
Or should I install the pads like in the youtube video?
I don't want to be unprotected because I installed the armor improperly. I also don't want to damage my new jacket.

Che C: Posted this via email link but it didn't work so you might get this message twice.

I had these installed in my Ronin.

Didn't read any instructions or videos so initially had it switched as I thought the bigger pad were the shoulder pad.

I ended up switching it back because the shoulder (smaller) pads kept sliding out of place as the elbow pockets are too big for them.

It slides when you hang the jacket, put your hands (or arms) down and even bend your elbow (it squeezes the pads to the free space towards the wrist because it is easier than bending them especially when they are brand new and hard).

You'll need to frequently re-position the pads if you had it switched else it won't surround and protect your elbow when they go out of place.

Having the elbow (larger) pads in the elbow pockets sort of solve the issue because it has less free pocket space. I still need to re-position the pads when I take the jacket off the hanger but not as much when wearing it.

The elbow pads also protects the elbow and arm better as it has more coverage. No more sliding issue when bending the elbows after the pads breaks in (only took a few days).

Highly recommand to use the pads the their designed pockets.

Mani C: You will eventually rip the mesh armor pocket in your shoulders if you squeeze elbow pads in there. Give the armor time to mold to your body. You will be surprised what a difference time makes.

A shopper asked: What is the difference between the "Men's" and the "Women's"? This will be going into a custom made jacket, so I am not at all concerned about the size of the pockets that they go into, just the safety of the product and how it will fit me. Apr 28, 2015

Che C: Both men's and women's version uses the same material. The only difference is the size.

The men's back piece (bottom of the three in the pic) is larger than the women's.

The elbow pad (in the middle) is available in the men's version only.

The shoulder pad (the top pad in the men's pic) is for men's shoulder, women's shoulder and elbow.

In terms of safety, the men's version has greater coverage if installed properly however, it may sacrifices the appearance of the jacket.

Ruth H: I can't answer your question directly, but be aware the elbow-forearm pad is pretty thick in the mens size and tightens up the whole jacket considerably by causing more pull and stress through the shoulders when you bend your arms. I ended up riding with just the back and shoulder pads for a more relaxed fit in my Rolands Sands jacket and save the elbow pads for track riding. Apr 30, 2015

Peter M asked: Comparing to the regular Forcefield armor, is the prorietary RL version lower profile or is it the same thickness? Dec 18, 2013

truong n: I'm sorry but i don't know what the force field armor is like. I can tel you it is very thin and flexible. The shoulder and elbow actually is 3 sheets giving it flexibility. I think its a very good product. Feb 5, 2014

Mani C: The rsd armor is probably lower as it's designed for more casual apparel.

The d30 armor has a lower profile and fits the RSD jackets if that helps.

Amber S asked: I read that CE rated 1621-1:1997 is for protection other than for back/spine, yet this contains a back protector. Is this just lower grade back protector then? Oct 3, 2014

Amber S: FYI
I heard back from RSD and they said the back protector is 1621-2 : 2002, shoulders & elbows are 1621-1:1997.
