Want to add my own armor!
I have not been happy with any of the knee armor in any of the pants or suits I have. I feel it would be fine if some how you land directly on your knee cap but I figure if I go down I'm landing on the sides of my leg/knees. If you compare the stuff in racing suits to the street stuff there is no real protection.
So, has anyone changed their pads in thier pants / elbows? What would be easiest way, I don't plan on sewing thru the hard plastic or thick padding. I know aerostich velcros their stuff in but I have an Olympia suit and I guess I could sew Velcro on and then stick to pads.
Any ideas? Being a hockey player, I am use to a little more protection and the off road stuff is a lot better than stock street stuff.
