Forcefield body armour

Just bought some Forcefield body armour today. Great stuff and fits snugly to your limbs/body parts. I bought the knee armour to go under my Draggin Jeans. Highly recommend it.

Forcefield

I ordered the knee armour after seeing them (Johnson Leathers) at the Long Beach show. The only problem is if your leathers have armour that can't be removed, without cutting them out, you can't use the Forcefield in addition to. Yes there great for wearing under jeans or for my summer riding gear that does have removeable armour.
Believe me, after crashing and mildly injuring my knee, I want all the best protection I can get. It took me 2 months to fully recover and nothing was broken, just really bruised.

Picked up the Forcefield knee protectors and the armoured shorts at Motostrano while I was in San Jose last weekend. Great stuff. Snug, world class protection but comfortable. Works great under my Olympia and BMW pants after removing their respective armour. Forcefield make an armoured pant which is actually less expensive than the knee protectors and shorts separately but I thought they might get a little warm in the So Cal summers..."specially on the MV. Nice kit.

I got the knee protectors which work really well with motorcycle boots, no obstruction. They also do a knee and shin protector. Its really good kit!

I think the shirt is good. You'll probably still want another wicking layer under the shirt (even though the shirt kind of does that for you), mostly because when you do stop and take off the jacket, you'd probably want to shed the shirt as well.
