Question Layering with padded shorts?...

I ordered a pair of Demon shorts today. Now I'm trying to decide what I should do for layering. I have a pair of Sessions Barricade shell pants. So, what would be better more comfortable in your experience:

A: Under Armour cold gear leggings under the shorts?

or

B: Looser fleece mid-weight pants over the shorts?

Is there a "C" option that I'm missing?

Anybody have a pair of these?

SNOW: DS 1620 Flex Force X D3O

Thanks!

Personally I think those are just a waste. I started snowboarding last year at 29, and I am moderately athletic. Needless to say my ass was fine, and same with my wrists. The warning I always heard was your first few days your going to kill you ass and your wrists, neither were true for me. I saw your other thread and you sound way more naturally athletic than I was and far more in shape. The number one thing I can say is lessons, I took 3 lessons last season. My very first day, my second day, and like my 7th. Maybe it was the lessons that kept me off my ass. Either way, don't think I would worry about too much as your probably only going to wear them for 2 days then say fuck it.


........Then again maybe it was the super deep pow we had last year that saved my ass!

Base layer Patagonia for me, padded shorts, shell pants.
Not really needed unless its icy, but you never know when shit happens.

Asspad, helmet and protective gloves are standard since my last slide on my tailbone off the downside of a big icy mogul. Never again.

Yeah, I kinda thought the same thing. Especially as I'll be learning at one of the best places for powder in NA...

Meh, what the hell right?

That and I bruised my tail bone years ago and it was terrible for weeks. I'd rather not repeat that. Besides if it all goes smoothly I may want them for learning jumps and 180's and shiz. Might come in handy if I decide to bounce my arse off a box...

Yeah, I was thinking a fitted layer under the shorts would be best. Not necessarily UA, but you get the idea.

I wear nike cold gear snug fit pants then my impact shorts then snowboarding pants.
Depending on the weather of course you may not need a base layer, early/late season riding.
This is where the Azzpadz excel. The compression shorts tend to be snug at times and hug the boys a little to much for my comfort.

I was thinking of ordering a pair of these too. When you get them can you repost if they are real bulky as I might have to buy a size up in pants.

Yes no pics unless it's only of the shorts unless you want to have your gf/wife model them for us then that would be ok.

what I'm looking for is how much space these things take up in the pants. If suddenly your baggy pants goes tight on you when these things are on and stuff.

Personally I prefer Option A as the fleece pants have a tendency to get hung up a little on the rough fabric of the shorts. I still do A+B it in very cold weather though.
