:nono: I just purchased a pair of these pants for what I thought was a great deal, $50.00. After I tried them on, I could have crapped in them. The padding they advertise in the hip area is as thick as the thinnese mousepad you've ever seen. Given that the padding is so cheap, I'm afraid of how the pants would hold up in a crash. My review? Cheap gear made for cheap squids. My suggestion: Don't be an idiot like me and buy them before you get a chance to try them on.
