to everyones negative review;
i've been snowboarding a long time. my park is always icy. smashing my ass off the ground after a jump used to suck so bad and end my day. i fell last week off a 40 foot kicker while spinning a 720, and i bounced right back up. normally that would leave me sitting there and i would be pissed. they are SO nice and you don't even notice they're on you. these pads definately work, and everyone who rides in the park and hit their ass should get a pair.
Better than nothing
I liked the idea of having padded shorts to protect again stupid hip bruising etc from skiing east coast snow and doing rails, so I picked these up. I am 6', 185 lbs with very large quads (34x34 pants0 and these fit well around the waist but still have some room around the legs, so you may want to go a size smaller than you usually do. The padding itself leaves something to be desired. After a few crashes it certainly mitigates some of the impact and may have prevented some bruises, but falling isn't painless :(
they help you go to work the next day
they don't stop all the pain but they def help out with the next day feeling. I ware them every time i ride now and don't even know their on.
