Great for commuting.
Great for city commuters where acceleration is minimal. Lightweight and easy to slip on over street or work clothes. Would not recommend for highway or high speed use.

For $13 bucks why haven't you bought this yet?
I started ice skating recently so I can learn to play hockey. After taking a few hits on the ice I realized the pavement would hurt ALOT more.. And bought these. For the price you can't go wrong. The material keeps things warm so I can't really wear these above 80f without sweating like a pig. But they're great below that. Low enough profile that they fit under my jeans also. I wear high socks with these to keep the material off my skin, less heat that way. Wintertime these r great bc they block a lot of the wind.

Bang for the Buck
These were very cheap compared to most of the other options so I impulse bought them. They really are substantial pieces of gear. You can fit them under jeans if you need to but you will look a bit lumpy.
I've worn them under scorpion covert jeans on a few rides and have found them to be pretty uncomfortable against bare skin. The velcro strap around the back of my knees got annoying quickly.
I'll probably use them over my jeans when playing around in parking lots or under my jeans for short periods of time, but no more trips of 20+ minutes.

Lightweight, durable, comfortable, just needs a strap at the top
For the price and being CE rated, you can't beat them. Bought the matching elbow guards. They both fit amazing and feel a lot safer than riding in jeans and a leather jacket. I have expensive textile overpants, but now that the summer is approaching, the heat has made it impossible to ride in them. I commute to work everyday, and minimal gear is essential since I have to carry it all around with me everywhere. These are perfect. My only complaint is there is not a strap at the top to keep them from slipping down in the event of a crash. Hopefully I never have to test them, but just in case I do, I think I am going to sew an extra strap to the top for more security. If you have ever laid your bike down, you know leg protection is a must. Lost a decent chunk of my knee in a crash a few months back.

Get a pair!
I use these for street riding under a normal pair of 501s. They fit nicely and you can barely see them. Good peace of mind knowing that my knees and shins are safe.
Note: the straps make them uncomfortable to wear by them selves on bare skin. they get very hot and itchy. I use them i conjunction with the EVS Fusion socks (also on RevZilla) and they are super comfortable!! good investment

Does the Job
Wear these everyday under jeans or chinos. Saved me a ton of money over buiyng a pair of pants with built in protection. They also cut the wind and saves my knees and shins from the cold at night.

Surprisingly Good for the Price
I needed some knee pads to fix the problems with the stock pads on the Klim Badlands Pro Pants I own, so I tried out five different ones. I was hesitant about these because they are so inexpensive; but they fit me well, they comfortable enough to wear all day, and I like that they provide protection all of the way down to my boots.
I crashed on the freeway at 65 mph, and the Klim pants were worn though at the knee. The Thor Sector Knee Guards really did a great job of keeping the pavement from shredding my left knee.
Whether I'm doing day trips on the street with my Kawasaki KLR650 or multiple day "minimalist" adventure tours with my Honda CRF230L I will always wear these knee guards.
