If the plug doesn't expand correctly in the ear, the function of quieting is reduced. If the plug doesn't seem to be in correctly, re-insert until you get it. The plug stays in place when I put my helmet on.

The armor seems to be dense and energy absorbing enough to offer ample protection in the case of an accident. My only criticism is that when the elbow/forearm armor is in the jacket sleeves there is little room for a heavy shirt/sweatshirt on my arms without being tight.

These are easy to insert, are comfortable, and block out a very appropriate amount of noise. However, despite following the manufacturer’s recommended installation, they frequently fall out of my ear canal while I'm riding. I can insert the plugs and walk around extensively without problems. After 5 minutes or less of riding, the plug’s fit will loosen. I have no way of reinserting the plugs while riding because I wear a full-face helmet, which means the remainder of the ride is noisy again.

Provides extra hip protection! Pretty simple product, but worth it at this price.

As Nalin said in 2012, this product is still not the same as shown in the picture. It is simply swiss-cheesed foam. There is no fabric sewn over it as shown in the picture. Still, it will probably work to give me some protection after I trim it to fit. But be warned that it is just dense but pliable foam about 8 inches long and 6.5 inches wide. Still the price is reasonable.

This belt seems to work very well. I have not had any back pain since using the belt. I do believe it is a bit expensive. I am not sure if the two side strap serve any purpose.
