Default Full length impact pants

Just wondering if anyone has any opinions on these? I am thinking of getting some soon - my intention being that they will replace having to wear base-layer pants, impact shorts and knee pads.

All I have found so far are these Forcefield Pro Pants | Forcefield Body Armour

Has anyone used these or any others? I would like to know if they offer good tailbone & knee protection, as well as being warm enough to replace base layers on very cold days (say -10c and below)

Cheers

Cheers! The Demon Flex D30 ones look pretty good. Between them and the Forcefield ones.

It's difficult to tell but the Forcefield ones look like they might be the warmer of the two.

Go with something that uses a hard shell. The RPT foam isn't very helpful on big impacts. Fine for the average fall but anything serious and you will want the fuller protection.

I ordered the Demon Flex Force long's a week or so ago. I'm sure they'll be good, I have the flex force jacket and like it a lot.

Only issue for me is I sweat like a pig in the stuff. I have NEVER been cold since starting to wear armour!

Hi Poutanen. Would you be able to post up your opinions once your Demon Pants have arrived? I'm happy enough without hard shell protection - I'm not in the park that much so don't envisage any major hard landings! And the warmer the better for me

+1 on that, Can you tell me how the knee pads are. IDK about your knees but mine are horrible and I am in need of some serious knee protection this year

Sure I'll report back once I've tried it. I slipped and smashed my knee once last year, hurt for about a month. And I hit a few small trees here and there. I think they'll be worth the $65 or so I paid!
