Scorpion SAS-TEC Replacement Knee Armor
Lives up to it's positive reviews, but...
Upon receiving this armor I did the "strike it with a rubber hammer test" and it looks like this armor lives up to it's positive reviews. Because of my lack of height (30 inch inseam) this knee armor sat too low in the highest velcro position in the Scorpion Covert Jean's I purchased. Inserted in the jeans I had to pull the knee armor up into the correct position when sitting. I'm sure when riding that street vibration or in an actual fall they would slip back down to where the top of the knee armor would rest just below the middle of my knee cap. I am keeping the jeans for the Kevlar protection but am sadly sending back the knee armor.

Fits perfectly in the pockets on my Scorpion Jean, but the pockets keep letting the SAS-TEC armor slide downward.
Other than that good product.

Obviously works well with the scorpion jeans. However the width of the product is a little narrow, causing it to shift in the pocket.

Bought this armor to fit the jeans I bought. They are pretty good - low profile (not too bulky) and are light weight (don't weigh your pant down).

Difficult to Position But Worth the Buy
It seems like others are also having difficulty positioning these pads "just right" and I am no exception. I feel like the overall fit of the Scorpion Covert Pro Jeans will dictate how effective these pads are for you. I have a 36" inseam and fill the legs of the pants like my typical jeans. Despite my height, I need to keep the pads at their highest position and don't see how this would work if my legs were any shorter.
My primary difficulty with these pads is keeping them towards the outside of my knee. I plan to attach velcro to the pads themselves to help keep them in position.
Overall, I am glad I bought these and will keep them installed in my riding jeans. I would rather these pads be "mostly in position" during a spill than not be there at all.

Good protection, great value
Purchased these jeans to go in my new Scorpion Covert Pro jeans. They are relatively easy to install, and after a few minutes I was able to get them to fit over my knee when sitting on the bike. They seem to fit slightly on the inside of my knees while on the bike, but I haven't been able to go for a ride yet so I can't say for sure how they will sit. Like the previous review, this would be more of a problem with the jeans than the armor.
Overall a good purchase!

Did not work for me with Scorpion Covert jeans.
While they seemed in the perfect location when standing, they moved up to my quads while riding. Also since the Covert Jeans are quite loose I think there is only a slight chance that these will be in the correct position if and when you were to fall on your knee. Maybe this is more a reflection of the jean design rather than the armor, but the bottom line is I could not use them or return them since they were used.
