Review Detail
I've used these shorts for the past month or do after starting to learn to snowboard on a dry slope here in the UK. The constant falling on that rough abbrasive surface was awful so I went on the look out for some impact shorts to help save my coccyx.
I can say that these did it really well!
After purchasing these I did a few more lessons on the dry slopes and felt nothing when I fell on my back-side!
Then took them to Borovetz in March 2011 and got to test them on snow/ice.
One day came down a piste to find a 2ft drop in the red slope I was on, onto a green. I fell down the slope and having never had to land a board before, failed at it, landed down HARD on the ice below. The impact winded me and left my coccyx throbbing despite having the shorts on!
I know for a fact that if I hadn't had the shorts on I've had broken something there and then, so to me they just paid their way! And they continue too as they've taken no damage so far! Really durable!

Im also liking the padding on the thighs etc for more extreme stuff around a park or something should I advance that far! Would recommend these shorts for beginner through to good intermediate park use!
Strengths
Good quality
Easy to wash (plastic pads velcro'd on so easy to remove)
Good belt system
Very protective
Memory foam under plastic pads for better/comfier fit
Weaknesses
Belt can come a bit loose some times
Sizing on the barginboards website suggested I went for a Large, probably could have got away with a Medium as they do feel a bit big sometimes, probably also causing them to come a bit loose at times
