These are a joke. I bought them when I was learning snowboarding and they don't help one bit. The ONLY thing they do is keep your butt warm when sitting on the snow. If you ever see them in person then squeeze the foam, its so soft you can easily touch your fingers together. Now imagine how that's supposed to help when you fall, even from a standstill. IT DOESN'T!!

Ya, I know, they're pads and some people think wearing pads is lame. I just started snowboarding after mountain biking for years and I use these while riding my bike. I decided to try them as I learned snowboarding recently and they were flawless. They're low profile and squishy like neoprene (think wetsuits) when you're moving around but on an impact they stiffen up as hard as plastic to take the fall. The change from soft to hard is almost instantaneous so its hard to tell just by touching them. Google 'd3o' for videos of people with them on being hit by shovels and not feeling it!

I figured for $50 I might as well not be sore from falling on my butt the next day. First day wearing them I only fell once and it was at a standstill just before heading down. Some random girl knocked into my board and I fell flat on my butt. The pads did absolutely nothing. When I got home I checked them out more carefully than before I had bought them. The foam is super low-density (easy to squish) and did absolutely nothing for me. Now I'm out $50 and I'm stuck on the couch cause my butt hurts too much to ride :(
