These Red Base Layer Shorts didn't have much protection where you really need them for snowboarding. This was my first ever snowboarding experience, which means I had a few falls. These Shorts didn't have much protection under the butt or the tailbone area, which is usually where you'd fall when snowboarding. But had an overload of padding on the thigh area...didn't make much sense being Burton owns Red now. I don't recommend these for snowboard newbies.
May look skimpy
This may look skimpy at first. But having something there to cushion the fall is better than nothing, esp when you land hard on your ass. Definitely saved me from needing to go to the massage therapist more than once.
