Best knee & shin protection
March 26, 2013(Fairfield , CT)
These are seriously the best knee and shin protection guards I've tried. I find them tight under pants and especially with my chaps however I've been wearing them over all my pants and even my chaps. When I get wherever I'm going I just quickly unstrap them and store in my bag . Better than having to eat lunch with knee pads under my jeans that I can't take off without removing my boots. These are so much more convenient wearing them on the outside. Really solid guard and comfortable.

Great product for the money, does fit underneath pants if they aren't skinny pants. The straps however can cause redness on the skin if worn underneath pants from rubbing on you but I wear them on the outside so it doesn't bother me. Straps are big enough for anyone since they are cut to length. Only thing I wish this had was a third strap for the knee area so that's held down as well.
Good Protection, funky straps

Overall, I really like these. They're comfortable and they seem to fit with my Alpinestars boots pretty well. However, the straps seem backwards--the strap behind the knee is longer than the strap that goes around my calf. My calf is much bigger around than my knee, and I wind up with only the last 'section' of the calf strap Velcro attached. I've got huge calves (per my wife), and the strap still works, so maybe only a few people will be affected by this.

The biggest issue is the Velcro strap. It makes it easy to take off but it scratches the back of the leg. Fits well under or over jeans depending on the cut of the jeans. I like them and wear them whenever I plan to be on the highway.

The fit is good. My legs are narrow the pads are a little wide on my knees, but shin area is covered well. When riding, I don't notice them and they don't get to hot. They look cool and can be used for other sporting events. I wear relaxed jeans so they aren't that noticed under my jeans. I like the CE rating, but not sure if it make a difference. Nice match with my Icon Field Armor Stryker Vest.

Would be great if it was designed like the sports support eqipment with wide velcro elastic or a pull/slip on elastic.
These things are awesome!

Normally have baggy riding pants to wear over my work pants... Got these to use when it's too hot for my riding pants and couldn't ask for a better solution. Fit great and seem to have a great amount of protection.

The elastic bands they come with are meant to be cut to fit, which is convenient. They are more comfortable than you would think, I forgot about them after fifteen minutes or so. I ride a cruiser with forward controls, so they're probably more extended than they were designed to be, which speaks a lot for their comfort. They seem really heavy duty, hopefully I won't have to find out.

Unfortunately, I returned this the day it was received.
- poor fit due to bulbous knee area. It extracts like a accordion around the knee area and lacks a strap behind the upper thigh.
- doesn't fully articulate around the leg in three points
- the two straps that are there go flush against the skin as there's no material to protect the calf area. The straps rub against the skin.
I don't believe the product would protect the knee area as it should due to this design.
