Snowboard Padded Shorts and Pants: Which to choose?

Any snowboarder, novice or experienced, knows that it’s only a matter of time before they wind up on their backsides staring up at the lift. High-quality snowboard padded shorts help keep snowboarders where they ought to be… on the mountain. Finding the right pair of padded shorts starts at the same place as any other article of clothing; with comfort.

A common misconception about snowboard padded shorts is that they have to be bulky and uncomfortable in order be effective. makes it easy to find low-profile and completely protective snowboard padded shorts.

A good-fitting snowboard padded short will fit under your snowboard pants but still be solid enough to save your butt when it matters most. Get a snowboard short that fits snug on the body as this will keep the padding in it’s proper place while allowing for maximum mobility, just like compression shorts.

Snowboard padded shorts should sit somewhat higher on the hip than most underwear. Snowboarders and skiers alike tend to fall on their hips almost as regularly as their tailbone. Allowing the short to sit higher on the hip keeps the padding where it needs to be.

What are Snowboard Padded Shorts made of?

Some of the best technology available in a snowboard padded short is D3O Padding. D3O is a hybrid-style padding that molds to your body. D3O Padding stays soft and comfortable while you snowboard then becomes rigid upon impact when you fall. The molecules in D3O padding literally rearrange and expand to create a protective shell in the area of the padded short that contains it.

Other snowboard padded shorts are created by layering EVA foam inside a spandex or lycra material short. EVA foam is standard in nearly all protective gear, especially in shorts. In padded shorts that feature additional padding, thin layers of EVA foam are added for comfort.

Snowboard Padded Shorts: Top Recommendations

The Demon Flex Force X D3O shorts are the top-selling snowboard padded shorts at It features a unique, diamond-shaped D3O tailbone protector, low-profile soft padding along the hips, thighs and lower part of the seat. It stays out of the way of the chair lift and gives snowboarders a nice comfy seat on the rest of the mountain.

Another excellent option are the Burton Total Impact Padded Shorts. These snowboard padded shorts also feature an unprecedented amount of D3O padding in the tailbone in addition to the lower rear part of the shorts and the hips. The D3O padding on the hips is surrounded by standard EVA foam that is lightweight, pliable and comprehensive.

What about Snowboard Padded Pants?

Snowboard padded shorts are the most common piece of tailbone protection because they work so well with so many existing snowboard pants on the market. However, some snowboarders require more warmth than can only be found in a full length pant.
