Re: Dirt Armor

Haven't seen any. I wear every piece of armor they make, except a neck brace, but I haven't seen any substantial hip protection. :idunno:

Re: Dirt Armor

not armored but...

I also heard these folks would be producing something shortly of the shorts nature: www.rockgardn.com

Something else to think of would be snowboarding shorts, a friend of mine had some that were armored and some kind of vented spandex.

The unit above looks pretty good but I'd think it would get a bit hot in herre.

These for you or the gal?

Typically I stick with the detachable kidney (shaped) pads in the hip of my XCR pants, being wider on trails is of zero benefit and I'm close enough already, sorry I can't be of more assistance ;)


I do highly recommend Fox gear for when you need to upgrade your clothes to fit whatever type of apparatus you choose on :thumb:

Re: Dirt Armor

Yeah, we have Fox gear already. These would mainly be for her, but I think I'll pick up a pair as well. The site above says that they work well for ATVs or Dirt Bikes, and they stayed cool while testing. :idunno:

Re: Dirt Armor

Hope your pants will fit over them. If not, I'll sell you mine. They should be big enough for a skinny minnie like you with those fat shorts. ;) I'd like to get some but I already wear the largest size Fox makes. :crying:

Re: Dirt Armor

hey speaking of, does that mean you have their XXL airframe per chance?? Im using the Acerbis Zoom II (plus) and its been fixed twice...and after looking at it after washing the other day, its not gonna make 3. I see fox is the only one with a half respectable XL one.

Re: Dirt Armor

Mine is an XL I believe. My ass is really the only HUGE part on me. And my thighs. I like to think it is all that left over muscle from the BMX racing days. All those uphill training rides gave me some quads and glutes. :clap: At least that is what I whole heartedly believe. :rotfl:

Re: Dirt Armor

Yer, the impact shorts I have I got from a snowboarding shop in Queenstown, NZ on a trip over there last year. Short note for those of you going there, get the impact short BEFORE you go to Coronet Peak ('Concrete Peak') NOT after.

they look much the same as these but the armour covers the whole leg, back and front, except for the groin area.

Then there are these, I'll check out what brand I have at home, but have a look in your local snowboarding shop, you shoudl find some impact shorts that will do the trick.

Actually I looked up cooperall on the internet and this poped up.

Ordered two pair today. Their primary US distributor doesn't carry them, but I called RideGear.com. They don't list them, and he said he had never sold any, but he was able to get them ordered. I should have them in 7-10 days.

Dainese makes awesome armor. I've been thinking about getting this suit (the shuttle), the cool thing is that it's good for road and dirt (as well as mt biking)...good thing too as it isn't cheap.
