Bohn armor should be just what you need.

I'm sure that it would be okay, I wouldn't mind it. I plan on doing a long ride, which will involve a at least 10 hrs ride a day, and will wear the protector.

Off the bike, I have worn it for 3 hrs or so, strolling in a shopping mall waiting for my bike being serviced at a local shop.

I live in a tropical country, in Jakarta, Indonesia. It's hot and humid here all year long, and there's no discomfort wearing the protector. I wear it every day when commuting and every time I ride my bike... I had two accidents riding my bike, both times it was my knees that took the punishment. So after the second one I bought knee protector (Komine and then Forcefiled) and never leave home without it.

Thanks for the help, Bob.

See you on the road (well, probably not in Indonesia!)

Would that be a reasonable assumption?
Opposite of my experience. But the only "tube type" knee armor I've used is Forcefield which I find incredibly uncomfortable. I have their shorts. Would have got their pants instead if I liked the knee armor.

Can you try before you buy?
