||Fist of all, this is not a review about the store, but the product itself. The store staff is great...
These pants offer a decent amount of padding, but some important spots are not protected which is a shame considering how pricey they are. One of these spots are between the side and back thigh pads (you can see in the picture). I've been using these pants while practicing some air tricks on a half pipe, and more often than not, on my falls, I hit this very specific spot (on the side of my leg, right below my butt :) and I ended up with big swelled bruises. I think these pants are fine if you're falling while doing something like downhill (still need to try them snowboarding), but for air tricks, they are close to useless. The pads keep moving and opening weak spots, they don't hold well on the same place if you keep moving a lot
