Product Description

The Seirus Super Padded Protective Shorts provide super protection for your butt, tail-bone and hips. They are made mostly of 4-way stretch Lycra which unlike a tailored garment fits snuggly all over. The padding provides protection for the bum, tail bone, & hips. The padding is both breathable and removable and insulates against snow when sitting. There is no padding on the front and the shorts are about 1/2" to 5/8" thick and fit comfortably under pants. This bum protector has removable breathable pads. The shorts do double duty in that they also insulate against snow when sitting. Padding is less than an inch thick so they should not be noticeable under loose fitting clothes. They have a comfortable waist band with draw cord. Color is black. These pants are Unisex and stretch to accommodate different shapes.

On a recommendation from a friend, I decided to buy this pad prior to trying snowboarding, and I am glad that I did.

This pad has literally saved my butt. As everyone who has learned snowboarding (and skiing) can attest, one will fall HARD on one's butt multiple times before becoming proficient at snowboarding. Even the experienced snowboarders will fall hard on their butts.

This pad will definitely reduce the impact of your falls. It will not totally eliminate pain of the fall, but the pain will be nowhere nearly as bad as one would feel without this pad.

As others have mentioned, this pad has a slight form factor and its cushioning is on the slim side. Unless your ski/snowboarding pants are very tight, you should have no issues wearing this pad underneath them.

The pad also does not hinder your movement and is very light. Overall, it is comfortable to wear. It is also easy to wash. Just take out the pads and wash the nylon cover.

The only drawback I detected was the presence the irritating of plastic-like label on the back inside of the waistband. That small label had several tiny plstic pieces sticking out which was greatly irrtating my skin. My solution was to take a scissor and cut out the plastic-like label (be careful not to cut the rubber band behind it). But I wish the quality control had figured it out and put the label someplace else where it wouldn't have been so irrtating.

These shorts fit me well as a 115 lb. 5'5" female. The legs come down long enough to where they fall slightly above my knee which is the length I was looking for. The material is snug, meaning all the padding stays in place, but still comfortable and flexible and not restrictive or overly tight at the waist. The only downside is that the tailbone padding is somewhat thin. I have yet to wear these shorts whilst snowboarding (which is what I purchased them for) but I may try to find some extra padding material that I can cut up and insert into the tailbone area before hitting the slopes(fortunately there are entry points to insert / remove the existing padding for washing, meaning I can try to add more of my own padding for extra protection). If the tailbone padding had been thick enough, I would have given these shorts five stars...but because they fell short in this regard, I could only give three. But like I said, I will likely keep them and try to modify them -- because out of the four items I purchased off Amazon for this purpose, these were the best of the bunch. The other items I tried either fit horribly or offered even less tailbone protection.

So, I've used these a number of times. They fit well and they aren't too noticeable, but the padding is very minimal and the worst part is that the padding already disintegrated. I have no idea how, probably just by using it. It's literally as thin as a centimeter now; it's completely useless.

I use the shorts for ice skating because I fall quite a bit. The padding is quite good and I haven't really hurt myself with them on. The downside is that the material of the shorts itself is not very durable. There's a large tear down the seams in the middle of the shorts.

I bought these for two things, 1) Riding on blacktop with my freeboard and 2) Snowboarding. I haven't wrecked yet on my freeboard so I can't vouch for pavement impact but on hard pack ski slopes they really came through. I had so real whippers and never felt them. Also, the padding is closed cell foam so it kept my bum warm when sitting on the snow and chair lifts. The pads came out easily for cleaning and went back in with no problem. The sizing chart seemed right on.

This is my first pair of padded shorts so I don't have anything really to compare them to. I will say that they functionally met all the requirements I was looking for in a pair of padded shorts for snowboarding. I did make a few mods to the shorts. I had a knee pad that was made out of very similar sponge material as the padding in the shorts. I cut new pads out of the knee pad since the knee pad was about 1" thick. I felt the stock pads were a bit on the thin side. I also removed the side pads since I rarely fall on my side on snowboard. They didn't seem necessary. The modded shorts greatly reduced all tailbone and butt crashes. I catch edges all the time and these shorts did the trick.

Pros:
* Great Fit. I wear size 34-36 inch waist pants and I got the Large/X-Large. They didn't seem to tight and nor too loose.
* Low profile - No one could tell that i had anything additional on under my board pants. You don't have to worry about diaper butt with these shorts.
* Padding is in the right spots. It has good coverage of the butt area and tail bone. The place where you land most often when catching an edge.
* Breathable

Cons:
* Padding is on the thin side. The stock padding is about 1/2" thick.

Nice, lightweight construction with decent padding. The padding is rather slim and that does comes with some trade offs. It obviously won't feel like falling on a pillow but it also won't make your butt look 10x larger under those snow pants. I feel like there's a good compromise because you definitely need mobility while snowboarding and these won't get in the way. Also, this won't prevent major injuries but will soften the blow a little and maybe make those bruises a little smaller and more bearable. It provides some warmth while sitting on the snow and chair lift which is extremely valuable after a long day on the mountain. The only possible negative I can see is durability. The elastic fabric and seams may tear after some hard use but that is yet to be seen.
