Crash Pads/Body Armor?

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,
I'm an all mountain skier but for the most part I'm in the parks and pipes, and I've been thinking about getting some type of armor. Basically I want something that will give me a little protection and not be constricting. I've looked at the hard shell stuff and the soft padding and haven't really had the chance to try any of it on...so I figured I'd ask what you guys think. I'll go from a day of all park to a day of skiing half off piste and half park and some days I'll just go for speed so I need something that will be comfortable for everything. Always wear a helmet so no advice needed there, mostly just a chest/butt/hip issue. Anyone know of good padding, or just say screw it and take the punishment?

I have thought about body protection also. I ski trees as will as ski fast. I have thought about wearing some of my Down Hill Mountain Bike gear. The only problem is it is made to wear over most clothing. I know there are lots of styles in the catelogs for biking. You may want to look there. You should be able to find upper body armour for about $160.00.
