They make you look like you are wearing shoulder pads
You might be wearing shoulder pads, but you don't want to look like you are. I got these to go in the RSD Ronin jacket. They fit in the jacket, but if your shoulders are broad they will stick out when you wear the jacket. If you are going for an on or off the bike look with your RSD jacket, these pads ruin the look. I still wear the elbow and back protector pads, but these shoulder pads were cramping my style, literally.

Fits the Ronin without issue
A little struggle to get the armor into the Ronin, but once in there, it fits great, and doesn't change the fit of the jacket.

Revzilla tag covers up the instructions, so a bit of work required to figure out which side goes toward the body and which goes toward the jacket.

Light, as shoulder armor goes, but an excellent fit
I've learned a couple of things about jackets and armor over the years.

1. Every jacket that (comes with back armor) has grossly inadequate back armor, and;

2) Armor is frequently interchangeable and will fit jackets for which it wasn't necessarily designed.

Roland Sands jackets do *not* come with any armor. I'm fine with this because I like to make my own armor choices.

I've come to believe that SAS-TEC makes the best armor, thus I installed SAS-TEC shoulder armor on my Roland Sands jacket. Although it is more substantial and would almost surely provide more protection, and although I could get it to fit in the jacket pockets, it made the jacket fit terribly and reduced comfort, both of which are strengths of the Roland Sands line. In this case - SAS-TEC out.

The Roland Sands jacket looks great only when it fits properly. Thus here is an example in which only the Roland Sands shoulder armor worked well in the shoulders and I recommend it.

However, I was able to easily fit SAS-TEC armor of the kind one would find in a high-end Rev'it jacket in the elbows without affecting comfort or fit, while providing more protection than the Roland Sands armor.

For the back, I used an Icon D30 back pad salvaged from another jacket. I've become adept at using a box cutter, and it took about five minutes to obtain a nearly perfect fit. (I need to add an important caveat. The icon D30 back armor is only rated at level 1. I am unable to find the rating on the Roland Sands back armor but if it's level 2, I'd go with that.)

I recommend absolutely adding armor to any Roland Sands jacket. However, it generally accepts only lighter armor - I assume because the jacket is designed as much to look good, on and off the bike, as to provide protection in a fall.

IMO, the jacket provides a reasonable degree of protection and it looks great. I have no qualms about walking around off the bike in the fully armored jacket. I perhaps should note that while I think the jacket, which is gray, looks great, my wife claims it is ugly. However, her view needs to be put in the context that she doesn't find any of my (now five) motorcycle jackets attractive.

Come to think of it, she doesn't think either of my motorcycle

Come to think of it, she doesn't think either of my motorcycles look good either and one is a KTM 990 SMT, one of the most gorgeous bikes on the planet, so her opinion should probably be dismissed.

Finally, since my Roland Sands jacket is gray, probably the hardest color to see, I do wear a florescent yellow vest when riding.

Light, flexible
I use this shoulder protector in my Maven lather jacket in addition to the back protection. It's super light and flexible - I hardly even notice it's there. I hope to never find out how well it does on protection, but it makes me feel safer having it there.

As advertised
I bought these for my RS Ronin jacket. For the price of the jacket, would be nice if the armor inserts were included, but eh. C'est la vie. Wish Revzilla had had the combo available, but I had to buy all 3 inserts separately (elbow, shoulder, and back). Costs a few extra more dollars, so I can see why Revzilla would be interested in this (it is a business, afterall).

Anyway, the armor fits perfectly in the pocket it was designed to go in. It is 3 ~.25in absorbant rubber pads attached to each other. It flexes where needed and I have faith it will help protect me when I crash.

I have the Ronin Jacket and was worried this armor would look too obtrusive inside the jacket so I held off on getting it for a while. A friend has this armor though and I put in it my jacket and its very stealth. Very non-obvious. Very cool. I like it

I routinely upgrade not just the back armor in motorcycle jackets, but the elbow and shoulder armor as well. I was able to fit SAS-TEC shoulder armor into my Roland Sands jacket and while it no doubt provided more protection it badly screwed up the fit. Since Roland Sands is as much, or more, about style as safety, I put SAS-TEC in the elbows, D30 in the back, but only the Forcefield armor designed for the jacket fit properly in the shoulders.

Wanted armor just for safety. Harley is a bit more sluggish in response than most bikes I have been on.
S T on May 29, 2015
from what I read rsd partnered up with forcefield to create protection for their lines and forcefield is one of the best. This should fit all rsd jackets very well its made for it

Anyone used these in either a mesh or leather Harley jacket?
Phillip S on May 8, 2016
Which side faces out (faces the leather), and which side faces your shoulder?
Yong B on Nov 18, 2013
BEST ANSWER: I have these installed with the tag facing out, like in the picture. But it doesn't really matter because this soft armor is more of a cushion than hard armor which has a hard, abrasion resistant side.
Also I used these pads as an upgraded knee pad for my Dainese Kevlar jeans, the pads that came with the jeans where a very thin sheet of rubber, there pads where exactly the same shape, but thicker of course.
I've read elswhere that this is made by Forcefield. How does it compare to their own Forcefield branded armor? It looks a little different -- lighter maybe?

Also, could either the RSD elbow or shoulder pieces substitute for knee armor inserts?
A shopper on Sep 9, 2012
BEST ANSWER: That is correct Forcefield does in fact make the Roland Sands armor inserts. You could try substituting them, however that is not their intended design. They will be too small and most likely feel awkward.
Curious if this fits into klim traverse jacket and how it compares to the non 3do klim Ce armor from a weight perspective.
A shopper on Sep 7, 2012
BEST ANSWER: It is possible to use the Roland Sands CE Armor in a Traverse Jacket, however the D30 is recommended. The weight of D30 when compared to the Roland Sands CE Armor is very similar.
