Verified Customer Reviews for Knox Action Pro Shirt
I bought this armoured shirt as I wanted motorcycle protection that was more comfortable, flexible and versatile. The action pro shirt definitely ticks that box for me.
The armour feels like it's in exactly the right place. It feels reassuringly secure without being restrictive. Another plus point for me is that it can be easily worn under other jackets. Layering up makes more sense for me rather than trying to find one jacket that is protective, warm in winter, cool in summer, waterproof and looks good. With this, you have a good level of protection and you can added additional layers that suit the weather and time of year.
The only slight negative for me is that the thumb loops feel like they're slightly in the wrong place so they stretch quite a bit at an awkward angle. It's a minor point though and after a while you don't notice them.
I did try the urbane pro before this as I wanted a AA rated jacket ideally but I found that one restrictive, so went for this one instead. It's A rated but that suits most of the riding I do and I will always have another jacket over the top.
Good shirt feel comfortable in it and I love the belt loops that keep it in place, for the British summer so far it's actually too cold to wear on its own so I just stick my normal jacket on top for warmth and extra protection with no problem. Only issue is the thumb loops are a bit too tight for my longer arms.
I ride a modern classic motorcycle and like to wear attire which matches that of the same theme. This can be difficult but after making this purchase I can now wear what I like over the top! The Knox Action Pro Shirt is absolutely fantastic for what I need (especially as I only ever travel at slower speeds on mentioned motorcycle).
Anyone riding a modern classic wanting to look dapper in the DGR would benefit from the under protection this provides.
Would definitely recommend sizing up (as fit is snug as per purpose of garment).
Sportsbikeshop gave amazing service as usual with quality product.
Lightweight, comfortable garment which is well constructed which enables different layers dependent on the weather and type of road trip
This is just what I wanted, I wear it under a aramid hoodie and it works perfectly. It's very well made and really comfortable. Order a size up if you don't like a snug fit!
This review is about SportsBikeshop's service: very helpful on the phone with advice and posted immediately, so the jacket arrived in time for an unplanned trip. Excellent and thank you.
Excellent product - very comfortable under any clothing works well for me under Knox Dual Jacket - will be very good in the summer under lighter clothing when on sports bike
Feels so supple and comfortable especially on elbows. Not like other body armour. Really good fit and flexible, only been on one ride for about 4 hours. Makes you feel secure and protected. Top class product and top class service from the guys at Boston sportsbikeshop.
Another great product from Knox. An upgrade for my Urbane pro jacket. Excellent product, great price from Sportsbikeshop. Great customer service from the Harlow store. Thank you.
When they make this product AA rated it will be on the only product you need!
At only A rated, personally I couple the armour with a motorcycle hoodie and take our the armour.
Fits true to size (is meant to fit like a base layer). Over the old action shirt, this is just as comfortable but the new slimmer armour makes a difference and is well worth the upgrade.
If you want to summer ride with AA then the Knox Urbane Pro is still worth while but for comfort the action shirt is in another class.
Good quality product from knox. Well made Jacket . Good protection from abrasion and top quality bodyarmour . Lightweight but strong material. Knox products are the best.
I purchased this mainly for the summer so I can ride with just putting a bomber jacket over the top.
Very light, but you now can really feel the outer abrasive protection, really nice to wear when warm or with my sweatshirt over it when cool

Armoured shirts are at the heart of Knox protective apparel. They were first invented by the brand in the 1990s. They've been a signature style ever since. Wearing a close-fitting armoured shirt is the best way to protect a rider. It ensures the armour is comfortably held in the right places, rather than it moving around in a loose jacket. With Knox, motorcycling is rendered Seasonless. There is no spring, summer, autumn, or winter wear. Instead, riders have one hard-working, layered outfit. This is built with an armoured shirt at its core. It can then be adapted to suit all weather conditions by either adding or subtracting layers. Discreet body armour can be found in the Action Pro armoured shirt. This armour sits in a super stretchy shirt. This has been designed to all types of motorcycle riders, and it offers superior abrasion and impact resistance. The Arction Pro shirt isn't just for motorcyclists. It's also suitable for other adrenaline sports including eBike, MTB and Off Road riders as well as those doing Snowsports, all looking for valuable protection. The shoulders and elbows are approved to EN 1621-1:2012 L1 and Level 2 back protector is approved to EN 1621-2: 2014 L2 CB. These Micro-Lock protectors are guaranteed for five years when registered. In the Action pro shirt, abrasion resistance comes in a package that is form-fitting, lightweight and breathable. Athleisure aesthetic and performance wear meet in this shirt to give the wearer optimum protection with optimum comfort. This is thanks to its construction. Being made with sustainable Sorona® Agile, an eco-efficient fibre which is partially made with plant-based polymers from Dupont, this fabric has a subtle piquet texture, yet has high levels of strength, stretch, and stain resistance. This makes it a perfect fit for the hard-working Action Pro. Armour in the back, shoulders and elbows can easily be removed for washing the shirt. The Action Pro is CE approved to EN 17092 - 4:2020 for road use with a Class A certification. It can be worn on its own for warm weather riding, or when it turns cool or wet, the wearer can simply add a warm or waterproof layer from the Knox Seasonless Collection.

Questions and Answers
Does this jacket have good enough abrasion resistance to wear on its own or with a normal hoodie. Would it offer the same protection as a textile jacket? Many thanks JamesJanuary 19, 2023
Unfortunately, this is a personal choice. Whilst the armour shoulder/elbow is level 1, back protector level 2 , chest protector available separately, you will find higher level of abrasion resistant with some textile jackets with this armour.
