aaron haslamwrote a review of POC Hip VPD Impact Short on January 31, 2012
I think that it is hard to make a good short that is low profile, non-restrictive, but still gets the job done. I think this is the one. I have taken a couple of falls in them and I have not noticed any discomfort where I might have in the past if I did not have the short. These fit under the short really well. My hood-rat friends have practiced hitting me and it did the job.
