I don't wear Demon, I had a cheap pair for snowboarding and found the padding moved too much; I use Dainese ones (think these are them - my hardshells are velcroed on and removeable) which are effective but maybe a little bulky.

Probably switching to Burton Total Impact shorts when I can find the right size in stock :( they use D3O so are less bulky but maybe a bit less protective as reliant on the putty reacting.

I remember trying Dels which were these:

Really good protection, not too bulky considering they are pretty heavy duty. I think Dela has a pair.

That company also has a list under roller derby (leopard print padded shorts?? :D):

Red was Burton's protection gear brand; I think they're listed under Burton now.

thanks for all the info. I like the burton ones, and would prefer the d30 stuff.
annoyingly tom sells the dainese ones but without the cocyx protection.

What padded shorts are people wearing at the moment? Find it really hard to judge how bulky they are from the online pictures, but no one who is wearing them at practice look like they are wearing anything near that big!

I have the triple 8 bumsavers. I also have a pair of demon flex force pro which I like but they're looking pretty tatty so I don't wear them often!

also none now; intended to replace them but never got around to it.
I believe Blizz has some new shiny one though which look pretty good.

Yeah Bear's looked quite slim. I'm not too worried about how they look, but definitely want to be sure they would be comfortable to skate in and not get in the way.

I still have the above mc David's if you want to try they are probably the lowest profile but also offer the least protection x

Thanks Silva. I've been told that about the McDavid's but may as well give them a whirl!

I have the same ones as bear - triple 8 bumsavers. They are great, but not as padded as some. I would recommend them!

My new ones are Steaks. Perfect fit, low profile padding with great shock absorption quality and invisible tailbone protection.

I can show them to you, just ask at training.
