These make falling so much easier.
I am a skier, turned snowboarder and am having trouble getting the mechanics down without falling on my face, butt, back, side..you get the idea.
These are great! My snowpants have always been big, so it fits great under them. Others can't even tell I have them on. They add an inch or so of protection all around the most vulnerable parts of the anatomy that can be negatively effected when learning the sport. I highly reccommend these to any woman who is just beginning.
