Too floppy
This armor is so floppy that every time I put on my jeans I need to spend 5 minutes flattening out the knee armor in my jeans. The problem is that they simply have no structure at all and they just sit in the little Dainese jeans knee armor envelope. I have thought about sewing the armor in to the pocket on all sides so it will stay in place, but this is a lot of trouble. I think I am going to put a more structured armor insert into the jeans when I get a free moment.

Limp, ill-fitting knee protection for a low price
I tried these out in some Scorpion Covert Jeans:

Pros:

* Flexible when walking or sitting.
* Low profile doesn't show under trousers.
* Cheap. You won't be out too much scratch if you don't like them.

Cons:

* Really thin. I question whether these pads would provide significant impact resistance.
* Asymmetric design (fat on one end, skinny on the other) provides mediocre coverage either above or below the knee. You get to pick which one to sacrifice.
* Too flexible. They fold up inside trouser pockets as you move, esp. when walking around.
* Textured side catches on mesh pocket materials. This plus the very flexible material means these things are remarkably hard to install/remove.

Bottom line: Not recommended.

Comfortable, Light, Barely Noticeable, but thin and questionable
I really like these knee pads for light, city, slow riding. They are thin, very flexible, perforated, and quite innovative. The actual protection is provide by hexagonal knobs that collapse and absorb impact. Very nice and fit great.

The downside is that in the trade off between comfort and protection, the latter loses out. I feel these would do just fine if your knee hit the ground at slow, less than 45mph speeds, and help a little. But, they provide nowhere near the level of protection that some of the other manufacturers provide. I would've liked to see them just a little thicker. maybe with a full layer of padding on the back side, under the hex knobs.

Comfortable and better than no protection
They are very comfortable and you would hardly know they are there. However while I believe they would assist in the slide they would be of no help in an impact. They are however exactly what I expected so I am happy.

Better than nothing...maybe
I think you're definitely trading safety for fashion and comfort with this set-up, but that's the case with Moto jeans in general. These pads--under my Dainese Montanas--are almost invisible, pliable, and don't make me sweat anymore than the Kevlar lining already does.
The problem for me is the fit. The pockets are non-adjustable, and for me they are almost all the way above my knee (in the riding position). So what scant protection these offer may end up doing nothing at all when the rubber, uh, doesn't hit the road. That may be particular to my build, though, so I won't fault them to much for that. Overall, these are a package deal with the Montana jeans which I'm fairly pleased with. So I recommend them, but with a lot of caveats.

minimal protection
These pads offer very minimal protection. I am using them in a pair of Dainese heavy cotton riding pants, for casual riding.
They offer minimal protection, better than just pants alone, but for aggressive riding, you would want something much more substantial.

Looks good, but doesn't inspire confidence
This thing bunches up every time I put it on or take off. It needs to be constantly readjusted, very annoying. I even wore Dianese gear with pockets designed for these.

The good thing is they allow your gear to keep its natural look without any bulging, pretty much invisible. But I'm not sure how well it will work in a crash.

Great all around armor
The Proshape armor is simply fantastic and once you have it you'll never want anything else! Some people complain about it being too floppy, EXTREMELY SIMPLE SOLUTION: get some adhesive backed velcro and stick it to the flat side of the armor (the flat side faces outwards) and chances are you have the other side of the velcro already sewn into your pants, so now the armor stays in place.

Great armor that offers great protection and flexibility. Looks like you don't even have armor when your off the bike, so great style there. The armor also is perforated so that some air will flow through it.

I talk briefly about it on my YouTube channel.

Great bang for the buck!
The material is quite impressive, and contours to the body well. While wearing it, you won't even notice its there!
