    Hip Protection


    I just picked up a used Revit Tarmac suit. Protection seems great except for the hips which only have very thin foam pads.

    I'm pretty sure all modern suits have similar padding in the hips.

    Is this really sufficient? I would think your hips have the highest likelihood of impact in a crash.

    Does anyone use upgraded armor in the hips? If so, what do you use?

    I have a pair of these that I normally wear under my kevlar jeans on the street but may try at Tony's this week under the one piece.

    I was considering trying the Impact Armor hip pads - they seem like a great option. I don't have their product yet (waiting for the BP and CP to arrive) but they get good reviews.

    I use these to great effect. Don't even notice under my leathers.

    I think Seacoast is a dealer for it.

    I was thinking of wearing my Mx armor shorts under my leathers. But, they seem like the won't fit. You guys really don't notice them?
