What protection gear do you have?

Setup: I'm going to be trying some slightly riskier maneuvers this year, and it'd be nice to armour up just a little. I've looked at Demon Protection and they look way good, but I can't find anywhere in the Vancouver area that sells that brand. Everyone sells Protec, but they don't look nearly as solid to my (admittedly untrained) eye. Anyone use Protec stuff, and are they good enough? If not, what else? And where in Vancouver can I get some of this other stuff?


Coffee is your friend. Everyone else is an acquaintance.

Demon Flex Force Padded Shorts Men, 2011

I use these...I first borrowed a friends when I was learning and decided to get another brand. Everything else I have seen or used is either wayyyy to bulky, non-protective, or just didnt work for some reason.

The Demon flex force shorts have just enough padding to take the edge off and do not look like you just took a huge shiz in your pants. They are very unobtrusive.

Skeletools crash pads and a Giro G9 helmet. I had the Pro-Tec crash pads previously and they're more comfortable, but they didn't hold up. I ripped the entire ass out of them in less than a season. That mesh material they use that makes them so comfy is just not strong enough to hold up to those sliding falls. It'll eventually rip and rip big. The fall I ripped them on wasn't even that bad.

That is an awesome win with the nunchucks.


I have helmet, wrist protection, back protector. Looking to get some crash pads, I suggest them to everyone but don't have any myself...

Smith Hustle helmet, some old Triple Eight knee pads, and Level Halfpipe wrist protecting gloves. I'm looking to get some knee/shin pad combo at some point. Crash pants are of little use to me. Plenty of muscle on my tights to absorb impact and I seem to have been born with out a tail bone. In 11 years as a skater I have never had the slightest of tail bone injury.
