Default Protective clothing comparison

Hey guys,

Just looking into buying some protective clothing for boarding. These are a few of the products I am looking at:

Upper body

1. Demon Snow Flex-Force Pro
2. SixSixOne Subgear Compression

Lower body

1. Crash Pads 2200 Thermal Pant
2. Demon Flex Force Long Padded Pants
3. Demon Men's Flex Force X D3O

Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

Also, do these products fit true to size? I'm 5'10" but on the skinnier side at moment so not sure whether I should be looking at S or XS.

Thanks in advance.

I've found that pretty much all protective equipment fits smaller than the size would indicate.

Last march I picked up some adidas climacool pads from TJ MAXX for $15 they are not thick padding but they have awesome structure for the thickness of the padding.

I think these are classified as basketball padding but they're rad. I used to use RED impact shorts but the pads were about as thick as a few pennies and were basically useless.
