Hip VPD 2.0 Short

POC VPD (Visco-Elastic Polymer Dough) makes wearing body armor feel like not wearing body armor. The Hip VPD 2.0 shorts are liner shorts that you can wear under baggies to provide hardshell protection without the bulk or uncomfortable feel of hardshell armor. VPD is soft, low profile, and flexible until something hits it. Then it becomes a hard layer of protection instantly.  The stretchy, ventilated mesh that forms the main body of the shorts provides cooling airflow throughout, to keep you from burning up all day while you ride. VPD panels in the hip and tailbone regions protect the most common impact zones. POC even built a chamois into the Hip VPD shorts to ensure all-day pedaling comfort.


  • Protective liner shorts without the bulk of traditional pads
  • VPD padding on hips and tailbone is flexible until impact
  • Ventilated mesh promotes breathability to keep you comfortable

Proper sizing guide

I returned this product before using it

I haven't actually worn these yet as I got the wrong size. Reordered a size larger, the size chart on the listing and on the POC website is off. I'm adding a picture of the sizing on the package to help others. POC non-newtonian pads seem like the real deal, they really do stiffen on impact, looking forward to getting the right fit.
