to everyones negative review;
i've been snowboarding a long time. my park is always icy. smashing my ass off the ground after a jump used to suck so bad and end my day. i fell last week off a 40 foot kicker while spinning a 720, and i bounced right back up. normally that would leave me sitting there and i would be pissed. they are SO nice and you don't even notice they're on you. these pads definately work, and everyone who rides in the park and hit their ass should get a pair.
