Roland Sands CE Armor Kit
Too small for large jacket
I bought this kit for my Ronin, thinking it would work well considering it is the set specifically designed for my jacket. Unfortunately I've replaced or plan on replacing every item in the kit. I found that on my large size jacket, the elbow pads would ride too far forward and stop covering the pointy part of my elbow, and the shoulder pads would sit too low and only cover the meat of my shoulder rather than the bones that need the coverage. I replaced the shoulders and elbow armor with the Forcefield replacement armor and it works way better! It stays in place and provides significantly better coverage for the areas that need protection. I would even say that it is less visible under the jacket.
I'm also finding the back armor is surprisingly rigid and almost sticks up along the edges. Even when I'm standing upright and relaxed, it leaves a weird fold just below my neck. I'm planning on getting the Icon d30 back protector and trimming it to shape as a replacement. I'm hoping the more flexible d30 will work better with the line of the jacket.

Great with Roland Sands Jacket
Fits easily and well into the RS Tracker jacket. Creates a snug, still stylish fit when in, particularly in the shoulders and sleeves. As a woman, found they helped full out the jacket so it fit really well and still looked great.

Thankfully I don't have to review this armor from the viewpoint of going down in an accident. I bought this to fit in my (size medium) Roland Sands Ronin Leather Jacket and it just fits perfectly for my body size.
It fits in the pockets snugly and discretely and doesn't weigh the jacket down.

Decent moderate protecting pad
I bought this after a couple of months wearing just the jacket without any padding. Adding it in does affect how it feels and looks, not as form fitting as before. It still felt comfortable though, although I still somewhat concerned about how good it'll protect compare to the conventional molded-padding.

This product fit the jacket perfectly.
The armor looks as though it will work well. I hope I will never have to test it.

If you own a RSD Jacket buy this armor
I own three RSD jackets and this armor is in all of them. They do add some weight to the jackets, but are soft and bend with your body. I had gone down on a low side and the elbow and shoulder parts did their job. One good thing is that they are removable, so you have a jacket that can be worn out on the town. Only complaint I have the elbow and shoulder pieces are a little difficult to get in place and can move around, but not much. Roland Sands make stylish gear, that doesn't sacrifice safety. If your looking to purchase one of his jackets go all in. It is a little costly but worth every penny.

Nice lightweight armor. Doesn't add much bulk or weight.
I bought my first Motorcyle leather jacket from RevZ(Ronin - RSD) comboed with this armor. And they go together well. The armor is well constructed, functional, light and doesnt make the jacket look too bulky/funky. Definetly worth the money for the added protection.
