What I meant by low profile was the more modern type pads and shorts. As in other sports, the technology in football has changed over time. When I played in the 90's we were still using the larger, bulkier hip and thigh pads than the kids do these days. Obviously those would be a hindrance to your mobility under a pair of snowboard pants, not to mention overkill since you are not tackling/being tackled repeatedly.
