Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great product The fit is a little tight. Im size 36 pants xl fits thight. Im 5 7 180 pounds. It it not very restrictive and i feel very safe wearing this. It will save you in the case of a fall. Leather pants dont fit me so i pair this with knee protectors for my street bike when im out for a "sporty" ride.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from additional protection always good I purchased these armoured shorts along with the A* Vapor knee guards to wear under some kevlar jeans. PROS: feels a LOT more protective than just jeans. The mesh/lycra breaths very well and is cool in warm weather. The hard armour is substantial and feels very protective. CONS: wish there was an actual waist band - instead its some kind of elastic tube/string which tends to slide down. It looks bulky, especially if you have big thighs. Must be careful pulling on/off - already ripped it a bit. Overall - great product and excellent protection. Recommend to all that prefer to ride in the comfort of jeans.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Must have for MX Sizing fit just as the chart said it would. Great protection and didn't even notice I was wearing it. Even the tailbone protector was unnoticeable when I was sitting. Only improvement I could suggest is making the upper hip pads plastic like the thigh pads. I would consider this to be a very good product that gives extra protection to a high impact area. This is the only padded short I could find that used hard plastic CE rated guards instead of just foam pads.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good plastic protection has a tail bone protector as well. Also not as visible under normal pants as I assumed.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fantastic shorts These feel incredibly safe. I have not had to test them in a crash *knock on wood* however the build quality is great. They fit VERY Small though! I am 190lbs 6'0 and I have an extra large. They fit quite well. I initially ordered mediums and could barely get them on!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Saved My Son's Life! I bought this pair of shorts for my son's month ago. He loved them. Two days ago he failed to make a turn coming off the highway ramp and crashed his Ninja 300 into the guardrail. Fortunately he was wearing full gear. His Dot certified helmet cracked but saved his head. His Alpinestars jacket with Icon CE level 2 D30 protectors saved his shoulder as he flipped and landed on it. His Alpinestars boots saved his left foot that was squashed between the bike and the guardrail. And this pair of shorts was badly scratched but saved his hip and tail bone.
