nicros Ok, bought the Skeletools and Demon Snow Flex-Force for women.

See which one she likes best then send the other back. Then we will try the winner out on a trip to the snow and Ill report back

Thanks for the suggestions!

The only not-for-women part is that the pad makes your ass look flat and wide. So just don't answer her truthfully when she asks...
Cool, Ill check these out in more detail. Thanks!

I have hit hard since I got them and felt no pain. They are padded nicely even in the thigh area and not too bulky to the point were it restricts my body movement and feel completely normal after about one time in them. Hope this helps a little.

Would you happen to have a link? I see lots of Demon padded shorts, but the ones I see for women seem to be very thin padding. Thanks!

Help!
My wife wore R.E.Ds while she was learning and they did the job just fine. I don't know that I would want them for more extreme riding, but she didn't complain much after I got her a pair. Now they sit around collecting dust so keep in mind if you buy something expensive you'll get maybe a season of use out of them unless your s/o goes crazy in park.

kswissreject skeletools has some good shorts. I forget if they have specifically women's sized shorts, but I bought some in the regular S size for my then-GF, and it worked out well. obviously varies depending upon the person's size.

Impact shorts for women?

My wife is learning how to snowboard- she's taken a few good tailbone hits and the pain has really hampered her learning.

I've been shopping around for the best tailbone protection I can find for her, but there seems to not be much for the ladies out there. Demon hardtail, Skeletools and Dianese are the names that seem to pop the most for having really good impact shorts with tailbone protection- but either I'm missing it or they dont make them for women.

Any ideas where I can find GOOD impact shorts for women? R.E.D. from burton apparently s**k, protec and others dont really have good reviews or have inadequate padding/protection.

Help!
