Direct Link To This Post Topic: Padded shorts
    Posted: Sep/30/2010 at 6:56pm
So I searched and most of the threads are old and did not reach a conclusion.

I'm looking for shorts that will:
  • protect my tailbone, cheeks, and hips
  • are as thin as possible
  • machine washable
  • padding can be removed
  • fitted shorts to minimize movement of pads (especially upon impact)
After searching on my own and the previous thread, I have come up with the links below and am hoping to get the opinions of those who have tried any of these out.

Red Total Impact Shorts: $89.95 http://www.backcountry.com/red-total-impact-short-mens - Tailbone padding is too small


Demon Snow Flex Force Pro Short Body Armor: $54.95 http://www.backcountry.com/demon-snow-flex-force-pro-short-body-armor-mens - feels like a diaper

Skeletools Impact Shorts: $67.00  http://www.skeletools.com/kiteboard_impact_short_crash_pad_hip_protector_p/sk002-l.htm





Pro-tec IPS Hip Pads: $54.94 http://www.dogfunk.com/pro-tec-ips-hip-pads-mens


2010 Crash Pads Quick Dry Underwear: $64.95 http://snowboards-for-sale.com/snowboarding_pads/quick_dry_underwear/

2010 Crash Pads Snowboard Hip Pads with Tail Shield: $79.99 http://snowboards-for-sale.com/snowboarding_pads/snowboard_hip_pads_with_tail_shield/



2010 Crash Pads Padded Thermal Long Underwear: $94.99 http://snowboards-for-sale.com/snowboarding_pads/padded_thermal_long_underwear/


TPro who has 3 different ones to choose from (1 pant/2 shorts): (more than I'd care to spend) $145.00 - $219.95 http://www.motostrano.com/tpfoboar.html

Dianese has many (8) to choose from as well: $99.00 - $140.00 http://www.dainese.com/us_en/multisport-winter?destinazione_uso=40&cat=75&subcat=80
These are the ones I would consider at $120.00:


EDIT: Added the Pro-tec shorts.

you'd like like G.I. Joe or some shiz if you walked around with those bad boys. Seems like a pretty cool idea though.

have you use one? if not, don't mentioned such nonsense. it feels just like normal shorts and you can't even tell from the outershell you put on.

one thing though, don't go with the demon snow pro, because the butt padding will move around and you will feels like wearing diaper. the normal one will do the trick and have thicker padding if you see the actual thing.

all the shorts you mentioned, none of the pads are removeable but the the hard shell will, one thing about hard shell is they might cause uncomfort from impact or just wearing it around. i believe all the impact shorts are machine washable.
hmmm... Now What???

Thanks for the info, you're the second person I've seen mention the diaper feeling.  I have no desire to wear a diaper.  I posted these because they were on backcountry and available in my size.

Which ones are you referring to as the hard shells?  The skeletools pads are removable.

Bro.
Burton red also have another model which is more like a boardshort. The padding is a little less "G.I. Joe" but they are hella comfy and look like normal boardies. They will stop the crazy ball sweat tighter fitting pads will give and people won't laugh when ur getting changed in the car park!

I have a pair of ProTec impact shorts which I bought last year after almost cracking my tailbone on a geefed 180. I forget the model, but they were ~$40 on a discount and they seemed to match your criteria:
  • removable pads (held in by velcro pad pockets)
  • pads covering tailbone, hips, front and side thighs
  • thin but sturdy material w/ stitched pad pockets
  • machine-washable (a must)
  • fit is pretty good, not noticeable with pants on
I tried on the R.E.D. brand and hated them, thought they were way overpriced for a worse product with less protection. The store guy agreed with me. I also looked at impact shorts for other sports, but these seemed to be the best. They help A LOT if you are into jumps/jibbing/stupid shit.

i have the pro tec impact shorts and they work well for me. altho, it doesnt exactly meet your expectations. my pads aren't removable (at least i dont think they are) and they are definitely bulky. all of my snowboarding pants are medium but after buying the shorts i had to get a large because their bulkiness made my pants uncomfortable.
 
but as for the shorts themselves, they seem to do the trick. i took some pretty hard falls that without them i would have been in crazy pain, especially near the tailbone. i took a very hard fall to the tailbone once and after that day of riding i went home and ordered the impact shorts right away. that has to be one of the worst pains in the world.
 
goodluck!

I have the Skeletools impact shorts and the padding is great.  Each pad is about 1/2 inch thick.  Each pad is removable so you can customize the areas you want protected.  You can also move padding to other areas to double up on the padding (you can buy more too).  The shorts are very tight fitting and believe they are true to size. 

I tried the Six Six One shorts and the padding in those are very soft.  In a fall, they wouldn't have don't much to protect anything.  The Skeletools padding is much thicker and more solid without it being too restrictive.

As mentioned above, if your pants are relatively tight fitting already or you are near the top end of the size range of those pants, you might need to get larger pants to fit properly.  Although they are bulky, they are very comfortable.

I've been looking at a lot of padded shorts too and the diaper-thing seems to be tough to overcome. I'm really looking specifically for tailbone protection. Anyone have comments on Azzpadz?

I updated my post with the Pro-tec shorts, but the pads don't seem to be removable.

itr43, have you taken a spill in the Skeletools yet?  Did the padding do its job?  I wouldn't want to look like J Lo, have to buy new pants, and not have sufficient padding.

I have the red total impact shorts.  They're very comfortable and I forget I have them, but then again I'm not a guy so I don't have to worry about my boys being squished or anything.  Plus they're not bulky at all so you can't tell I have impact shorts underneath my pants nor does it restrict my movement at all.  They're pricy, but I wanted the d30 material rather than get the Protec ones which only had thin foam padding all around which when I put them on at the store felt like they would do nothing to protec me if I took a fall.  

As far as the padding, I've take a few hits on a box to the side with them and they didn't hurt at all.  I wish they had a put more padding on the back.  The d30 material is only present on the tailbone part and the side part.  On the back of those shorts are another foam padding that's kidney bean shaped, but they're pretty thin and they did nothing to protect me there when I took a fall and hit the back of my thighs on the edge of a box.  Keep in mind though I'm only falling from boxes so not like bailing on a 20footer on my tailbone or anything.

Hana's review doesn't really help much.  She is also protected by all that junk in da' trunk.

Might be a side-effect of something else...I'd have a talk with your roomates and enforce a no-roofie policy.

I've seen red shorts in store and they're pretty horrible might as well borrow you're gf's pads and stick down your shorts (I've actually had a guy at a store tell me to do that in lieu of trying to save money - his story). The padding is short and feels like it's just foam, look for the material that is in pads, I think newer ones will include some sort of gel. I have pro-tecs and they fare well nothing amazing, there was a rip at the store on a pair and got a discount so i grabbed'em

I saw this on an older post and find it hilarious - if you like  a lil sm after maybe?

I got the Crash Pads 2500s, which are great because they have a removable hard tailbone protector.  They're spendy, but after cracking my tailbone hard last season, I didn't want to risk another knock.  They're fairly comfortable too.

The Demon ones look quality.

I tried the Protec ones, and they're trash.  Useless.  The non-d30 RED impact shorts are even worse, and I've heard mixed reviews about the d30 version- that they don't have enough impact gel where you would actually hit your tailbone.

I bought the red D30 Shorts and wore them once. I thought they were terrible. Uncomfortable and they did very little in the way of protecting my tailbone.

I would greatly appreciate that if you don't mind.

In my opinion, skeletools looks like a decent pair for the dollar.  It looks protected enough and comfortable to wear.

From my research on other threads and what I have heard here, it sounds as though I should get the Skeletools.  The TPro are more than I'd like to spend and are often motorcycle pads and don't protect all the areas a snowboarder needs protected.

itr43 is going to email me some photos of the skeletools he has and I will post those here.  My only worry is that they would be too bulky.

tried padded shorts and they felt uncomfortable I must say. I prefer just a tailsaver personally, just seems to be more effective and I can adjust/remove it much easier during the day

Agreed on the overpricing but aren't all Burton products overpriced!?

Sure the boardshort type model has less protection than the hardcore type ones pictured at the top of the post, but how much padding do you need. The burton reds save ur ass from that hard slap on the ice for sure and are protective for most stuff...it all comes down to how much protection you really need and where ur opinion lies with comfort, looks, washability ect. vs protection level.

What Pro-tec ones do you like?

Boneseh--

I've got a pair of six six one bomber shorts I picked up online for under $40. The only criteria they don't meet on your list is the removable pads, but they're fully washable with the pads in. I think there may be a newer model out now, but these are what I've got:

if you can be patient, check out chainlove.com a couple times a day. they usually get a couple pairs of impacts on the site from sixsixone or troy lee for 50 to 70 percent off.

There is a product called a "tailsaver" made specifically for preventing tailbone injuries. I'm sure you can find it if you google it. They aren't pants or shorts, rather, they clip onto the inside of your boarding pants and are supposed to be basically invisible. I was thinking of picking one up as I'm riding more park these days and tailbone crashed hurt for a long time. Anyways, hope this helps!

I'm stuck between the Triple 8's, the Skeletools, and the Crash Pads.

i've got the pro-tec ones. the mesh is a little weak but it breathes pretty well. the hoops are nice to help adjust them without taking them off. I got them for $30 during a snowboard/ski show.

I own a pair Pro-tec IPS Hip Pads shorts for two seasons, now. I did my share of falling, and most of the time, I don't feel a thing. I wear it over my base layer, and I don't feel restricted at all. I would recommend getting a pair. It would definite helps you enjoy riding more.
