Highly recommend! I have to say if you have to wear a butt guard I would totally be confident with this one! I ordered this because besides great protection ppl said it was "cute". I don't know how "cute" it is ;) but it does the job w/out being uncomfortable or bulky! I don't even notice it once I'm all geared up. I've fallen enough to know that I've not had one bruise or twinge of wondering if I've hurt something. I always just pop up and keep going. W/out it I don't think that would be the case. I am 120lb, 5'7 and I went w/a S. Because of the guard I had to go up a pant size to a M and that fit perfectly, comfortably and still looks stylish! Just gives me some extra back w/out being obvious, ha!

The most important part we want to protect is the tail bone. This impact shorts does have the pad extend to the tail bone. And the padding is pretty strong. It is better than any other impact shorts we found in the market. High recommend it.
I love the idea that the pads are removable but at the same time, they can be quite difficult to stick back in because the hold inserts are so small. As for taking impact, I don't really find it that adequate, I find my natural buttucks provides better impact absorption than the pads. Falling on my ass while wearing the pads knocked the wind out of me rather than absorb the impact. I've fallen on my natural ass plenty and I never had the wind knocked out of me like that before. I may try the d30 version to see if there's a difference.
Does the job well!
After my first try at snowboarding and busting my tailbone and hips repeatedly -- I had a friend suggest pads. After reading a lot of reviews I settled on the Demon pads. These are a great fit, cover all the right spots, and after plenty of falls I had zero bruises to show for it.
They're really low profile as well and it's not hugely obvious I'm wearing anything underneath my ski pants.

I spent my first day crashing and burning all around the mountain, and I walked away bruise-free. I was super sore the next few days of course, but was not in nearly as rough of shape as I would have been without this padding. I recommended them to other ladies in the locker room too!
These shorts are pretty awesome. I love that the padding is removable! It makes it easier for washing AND you don't have to wear all of the pads if you don't need to. The all out look and fit of these shorts was surprisingly cute. No one will be able to tell you're wearing these. They're not super bulky and provide enough protection at the same time.
