Product Review: Forcefield Action shorts

Forcefield Action shorts, £89.99

Tester: Andy Davidson

Time tested: 400 miles/seven months

What’s good? The more I practise off-road the faster I go; the faster I go, the harder I crash. I bruised my hip and upper thigh badly after a heavy landing. Enter Forcefield Action Shorts. They come with CE-approved armour to protect the hips, thighs, buttocks and coccyx. I expected a bulky feel but they are perfectly comfortable and are noticeably high quality. The armour is conveniently removable so the shorts are machine washable. They can be worn straight on the skin, are breathable, fast-drying and there’s no itching.

What’s not? They cost £89.99, which is pretty expensive. But this is really down to personal opinion and how much you value protection.
