Great protection, comfortable, not even noticeable when riding
This type of armor is really protective. It hardens on impact and absorbs more energy than the standard hard armor. It is very flexible and becomes more so with your body heat, so you can hardly tell it's there. I had it sewn into my race suit when I crashed and it was like a pillow in my fall. So, I bought these to sew into my street leather pants that did not come with any hip protection.
My pants did not have pockets or anywhere to insert the armor, so I had to sew it in myself. I bought ventilated sport fabric and fabric seam tape for the edges, since they'll pull apart with use. Cut the fabric into a double-sided pocket to snugly hold the armor, and sewed up 90% of the circle. Then inserted the armor. I just sewed it in permanently, but it works fine with a velcro top if you want it removable. It probably took 90 minutes from start to finish.
It made my pants fit a little tighter through the hips, but the only true effect of that is that I can't get my hand in the front pocket any more. No big deal.

Comfortable Protection
These fit my Joe Rocket Phoenix 3 pants pretty well. They're slightly smaller than the stock inserts, so they move a little bit but not enough to lose effectiveness. They're thick enough to provide good protection while remaining comfortable. As they warm to your body they seem to mold into place. I like the D30 material for this reason. Pricey, but I figure if it prevents an impact from going from just sore to hip surgery that it's worth every penny. Get 'em.

Good protection
I replaced hip pads made of terrible grey foam in my Olympia pants (why wouldn't Olympia put real protection there - for the price you think they would!). Never notice the pads - they are comfortable. Glad I replaced what I had.

Excellent fit for REV'IT! Sand 2 pants
The REV'IT! Sand 2 pants have large hip armor pockets but, didn't come with anything supplied and I really like the D3O armor and technology.
These fill the pocket completely, are low profile, and extremely comfortable.

It's late spring /early summer in New Zealand and I can report they are not hot at all.

I expect given their large size they will afford some decent protection should I ever (hopefully not) come off onto my hip area,

*** Highly recommended!

d3o - cool tech. I like my bike gear to not look like bike gear - i.e. no massive shaped pads that restrict movement and make me look like I'm going into battle

Can you tell me the dimensions in inches, (length by width), of the Rukka D3O Air Hip Pads, RevZilla Cat no 839060
A shopper on Feb 11, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Rukka D3O Air Hip Pads are 8 inches at the tallest point by 7 inches at the widest point, when placed into pants with the small U-shaped cut out facing forward.
In other words, if I select (1) one under quantity, will a "pair" be sent?
A shopper on Apr 27, 2013
BEST ANSWER: Yes, the Product Rukka D3O Air Hip Pads are sold as a pair.
Hi- Looking to replace the hip padding in my JR Phoenix 3.0 pants. I bought Klim pads (like their stuff), but they are waaaay too small and float around in the insert pocket far too much to offer any protection at all. Looking at Dainese, Rukka (same material as Klim +), and Forcefield.

The dimensions of the JR pads (and pockets) are 8" wide x 10" long. What do you recommend? Not afraid to cut if needed. I really appreciate all the useful advice I've received here in the past- thanks in advance.
A shopper on Aug 1, 2014
BEST ANSWER: They are 8.5" x 7.5" (depending on which orientation you use). They conform well after getting warmed up. The best solution to your excess pocket space is to get heavy duty velcro strips that have industrial strength glue on the outsides. Any decent fabric store (like Jo-Ann) will carry it. They are usually 3" long x 1.5" wide. Once set, they will stick to ANYthing and will keep your armor in place in the pocket, while also allowing you to adjust their location to better protect you since it'll be in the right place for your body.
Can the Rukka D3O air hip pads be trimmed an inch or so in width without compromising its integrity in a crash? Now they are too big to fit my over-pants.
Robert P on Mar 19, 2014
BEST ANSWER: Robert, if you were to trim them as much as you've indicated, you would be well inside the border into the perforations. The pad is thick -- maybe 3/8ths of an inch to 1/2 inch in the thickest part. The thing is that it doesn't wear as though they're thick. In my Rukkas these pads disappear. You could trim 3/8ths around the edges and perhaps 3/4ths of an inch in the widest part before getting into the perforated portion. The pads are thick enough I would speculate they would hold their shape, but mine is not a knowledgeable guess. As to whether they would still respond as designed in a crash, I cannot say. Good luck.
