The POC HIP VPD Protection 2.0 Shorts are some of the most protective soft-pad padded shorts we sell. The POC VPD body Armour underwear can be used as ski padded shorts, snowboard padded shorts, and mountain bike padded shorts. They also include a triangular-shaped tailbone pad made from VPD, the most advanced protective padding available on the market today. Lycra and mesh construction for maximum comfort and breathability. The most common advice with body armour is to buy it 'before' you 'need' it, rather than 'after' you 'needed' it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Stef Very comfortable and protective
Before buy "Poc Hip VPD 2.0" shorts I was using "661 Sub Shorts". I had a nasty crash on a downhill rocky road, the 661 protective foam completely compress on impact area and I ended with big blue and scratch on thigh (under the shorts protective area).
POC use a soft but harder on impact material, this materiel can withstand multi impact and we feel very well protected (not tested yet in a big crash!).
I use as a first layer instead of normal bike shorts, the sit pad are minimalist but OK for not too long ride! The shorts is made of very well ventilated mesh material, it became just hotter than normal shorts under the protective pad but still ok to ride on it. Over I put a normal MTB shorts (the protective pads are thin and we not notice them).
I also use to ski all day with "Poc Hip VPD 2.0" put over the first layer ski tights (the sit pad are minimalist and don't bother).
