A bit disappointing.
I do have mx knee armor that I can wear underneath.
I bought size 34, which is what I wear for the Mojave pants I use on my dirtbike. It fits fine on the waist, but the knee armor isn't so great.

Also, the velcro on the bottom of the pants tends to open when I mount the bike or just from hitting the foot pegs.

From what I've read online, the knee armor design is a common gripe people have.

I tried moving the knee armor up....there are velcro pieces within the armor pocket. The problem I'm having is that there's no way to secure the bottom of the armor if I move it up.
So I can move the armor up to #1, but the bottom part is at #3 already, I can't secure the bottom--it's as high as it can go. Kinda weird. Any advice?




Did you ever figure this out? I need to move my Knee armor up and find the same problem you describe.
I thought that I could buy the "pro", thinking they were bigger. but after looking at the dimensions of the "pro" and measuring the armor in there already. They are the SAME size.
