roadcrafter 3 and tf5 pad questions

Is it possible to use the tf5 pads in the roadcrafter 3 shoulders, elbows and knees(I see its possible with the hip and back)? Would be a bad idea over the tf3 pads for any reason?

On the website they have a pocket set that says tf5 and mentions r3 but I think its a typo as the pockets are square and wouldn't fit the tf5 pads. They only seem to have adapter pads for the darien.

Also a bit unrelated, is the chest pad something that can be left in without affecting entry/exit?

Prolly best to call Aerostich and ask them directly. Their customer service folks are knowledgable, friendly, and quite helpful.

Yes, you can order them directly as replacements/upgrades for the TF3's in the R3 suits, it was a nominal upcharge, I did it on my R3.

They are.....smaller. The coverage area is significantly smaller than the TF3 pads. I have no doubt they offer better protection in the areas they do cover. The velcro strips allow some variation on where they are placed, so it may take a bit of fussing to get them in the right spots.
