The good and the bad for protective equipment

Just wanting to pass along my impression of a couple of pieces of equipment that I've bought.

These knee/shin pads are great. Good fit, sized to end just above the boot. Removable hard shell with padding underneath. Recommended.

These impact shorts I can describe in two words. Use. less. About the only thing they provide any protection for is the cold lift chair, and even that's not great. Buy s couple of towels, stick them down your pants, you'll get as much protection.


Error 404. Coffee not found.

Completely agree with the Pro-tec Hip Pads... It looked and felt good in the store, but may as well wear nothing on the mountain.

I'm more "armoured"
Got the http://level-super-pipe-pro-snowboard-gloves
Helmet of course, and cp2500 pad shorts
Which are crucial when you wash off some hidden icy mogul...or slam on a tree. I barely feel them under the pants, a must in hard pack days...
