Reviews & Questions
Take a look at the Alpinestars hard shorts if you want something with a longer lifespan. Otherwise, these Dainese shorts are stylish, comfortable and virtually invisible under riding pants. It's a real shame that the build quality can't live up to the demands of frequent riding.
The pads feel pretty sturdy, and the coccyx protection feels weird at first but is REALLY nice for abruptly bumpy stuff that you don't have time to stand for. A little bit of a pain to get on and off, but I'm never riding offroad without these again. Definitely worth the $100 to save my butt.
Also, its great to find something this protective that fits me, as I usually have to get children's offroad gear. The XS fits a 5'2, 100 lb woman pretty well.

I was hoping to find a short that included a chamois pad for comfort. I think the reason against that is then you would need to wash them much more often, and with the hard armor that would be more of a problem. I wear the Moto-Skiveez shorts under these and it's an easy maintenance combination. A bicycle riding short would be good too, but there are advantages to the Moto-Skiveez because they are cut specifically for our use.
These aren't bulky under my riding pants, Fox Legion pants, even when worn over the padded shorts. Anthony says they're on the bulky side in his review but I've seen a lot worse. As I said, they aren't a problem driving in my little Tacoma, and that's a real bad place to have a Kardashian® butt.
I recommend these if you want good protection on your hips, thighs, and tailbone. They aren't bulky to me, and I'm pudgy.

Only issue I have is with the tailbone protector. I don't feel it when riding, but I definitely feel it dig into me a bit when sitting down normally.
As far as protection, I hope to never have to test it out! But the pads do feel like they would do the job.

I miss hard protection elsewhere as what you see in the pictures is just foam (and a light one, not really dense).
It is bulky to wear under jeans, you will need to have pants are up 1 number (1-2 inches) on the waist in order to use it.
Once it is in place an I am on the bike I just don't notice I am wearing it. Very comfortable, zero issues even with tailbone protector.
