I'm looking into buying some protective clothing for boarding this year, preferably some i can use for mountain biking too in the summer. I for sure am gonna get some shorts/pants with tailbone protection, and maybe knee/shin pads too. I'd like to get soft padding instead of hard so it doesn't restrict movement as much.
I also might get upper body protection, but i'm not real sure about that yet. Something with decent elbow pads, chest protection, and maybe some back protection?
I'm kinda on a budget, so I'm trying to stay under $60 total for lower body pads and under $100 total for upper body if i do get some.
I don't hear much about people who have used protection other than a helmet, can anyone give me some advice or recommend some gear to me?
btw, i don't mind buying used
