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!

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.

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.

I wear women's specific Demon brand impact shorts that I got for an awesome price off of a website called All Sport Protection. I broke my tailbone on my first year out learning to board hurt like hell. The impact shorts gave me the confidence I needed after that to stick it out for the occasional quick butt side stop. 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.

I wear Skeletools and they work great. It's unisex sizing and they give waist measurement guidelines on their website, so it should work for most women. My son wears a size XS in Skeletools, and he was barely 100 lbs a few seasons ago.

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...:laugh:

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!

Hi there. I have just started snowboarding in the last couple of years, very infrequently. I have hurt my tailbone twice already, and its the thing which really puts me off going for it on slighter steeper blue run slopes. Which shorts did your lady end up going for?
