Default Impact shorts under $40 SHIPPPED!!!!!

Well everyone as we all know about the Impact shorts piece in the EC Meet thread some of us are looking so I figured I would put this up:

Amazon.com: Triple Eight Bumsavers Padded Shorts: Sports & Outdoors

EDIT: I believe free shipping is TODAY ONLY

I just placed an order for them and will let everyone know how they feel when they get here...should be by the end of the month. (I had a $50 gift cert to Amazon from my company)

They are cheap, the pads look thick enough and correctly placed. I also read a bunch of reviews on them and no one was complaining about movement restriction, and most reviews were by boarders (snow or skate)

If anyone else has reasonably priced shorts to post put 'em up!!!!! women's also as I'm looking for my g/f ( I have to be the equipment expert while she just rides...its like she has a freakin' agent haha)

those look decent, im still in the market for pair because the R.E.D. ones suck, even for $15, i need ass proection, not so much tailbone or legs, if they cover it all then im all for it too

these seirus ones look good



and these pro tec



and this hillbilly dirt gear brand looks really solid



but even my R.E.D. ones were somewhat bulky with very little foam, so how bad will these be, the diaper feel doesnt fly


and what about this buttshield > > > >

That butt shield is funny as hell!!!!
The hillbillies look awesome but I thought they might be restrictive so I didn't go for those but they look cool as hell haha (not that looks will protect you)

yea I also asked them and he said he is pretty sure the pads are removable...so u can customize which pads u want in there

I have the RED ones. They are pretty decent I hate to say. Better then nothing and not to bulky if you buy the correct size. Pads come out and they are pretty much board shorts without pads. This is handy when I am in Steamboat and need some trunks to get in Strawberry Park. If you watch Brociety they have been popping up for 30 bucks! I also saw the Six Six One Pro Bomber Undershort pop up on Chainlove and that one would work too!

I have demon's which is a lot like the protec ones and my gf has the protec ones and we realized they are not padded enough. Still they are better than nothing. So I went to Campmor to see if they had the seirus ones but no luck. The review on amazon for the seirus super padded shorts says it doesn't make much of a difference for him/her but I will check them out and post about them.

The impact shorts that I ordered ( link is on the first post of this page ) should be coming in late morning or early afternoon today!!

As soon as they come in I will jump in those bad boys and give you a quick review as far as comfort, quality, materials and flexability. A performance review will have to wait until our seasons starts

I wear REDS, I had a pair like that from triple8 but I didn't like how they felt they were to bulky and they kept ridng down had to keep pulling them up. I just needed something for my tailbone. And tell me about summer being like X-Mas, I just got a Signal Park Rocker for $160 can't wait for to take that out.
