Roland Sands CE Armor - Shoulder 4.5 5 24 24
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. 1.

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 IMO, the jacket provides a reasonable degree of protection and it looks great.

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 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. December 15, 2014
Seems good to me I have all three of these pads in my Roland Sands Vandal jacket(back, shoulders, and elbows). They are easy to install and fit nicely in the pockets. These shoulder pads are really flexible and stay in place nicely. I have not tested these pads in the sense of falling off my bike (knock on wood), but they do provide me with some peace of mind and seem like they would provide some protection. December 15, 2014
Fine protection! In my opinion I wouldn't use but are necessary to protect yourself. November 15, 2014
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. October 20, 2014
Pad! There is not much much to say about this product, It fit. It has great protective qualities, though i think it shouldh ave COME with the Jacket. July 28, 2014
Hope to never know their true effectiveness Not much to say here. I got this with the back and elbow armor as well. Fits great into my RSD Tracker jacket. It is a bit of a pain to get the elbow in at first, but this is more of a jacket issue and not the armor. July 15, 2014
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. March 28, 2014
As Advertised It fits as it should in my RSD Ronin. Can't speak to durability. Some chatter in reviews that the D3o would fit and would be better overall, but I can't say. January 31, 2014

dan p: 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.

A shopper asked: 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?

RevZilla: 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. Sep 10, 2012

A shopper asked: Curious if this fits into klim traverse jacket and how it compares to the non 3do klim Ce armor from a weight perspective. Sep 7, 2012
Answer this · Send to friends Good question? Yes (0) No (0)
RevZilla: 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. Sep 10, 2012
