Vigilante Padded Shorts and Body Armor: Moving with you, not against you

The Vigilante line of padded shorts and body armor is the result of a collaboration between XSportsProtective and Crash Pads Inc. The Vigilante line is unique from other padded shorts and body armor, due to their design and construction. A lot of padded shorts make you feel like your wearing a ton of bulk, or uncomfortable pads that bend awkwardly or crush when you move your legs. Not only is that uncomfortable, it inhibits your full range of motion. We wanted a low-profile, high-performance snowboard padded short that would enhance mobility, not hinder it. Enter Crash Pads, who designed the Vigilante line of padded shorts and body armor with human kinetics in mind. Think of your body as being divided into different zones—thighs, glutes, tailbone, etc. Vigilante padded shorts and body armor use a concept we call zone padding. The pads are shaped, cut, and placed to protect your major muscle groups without gaps, with the most vulnerable areas given extra protection. So if you fall--and chances are you will--you're protected. The unique shape and placement of the pads give you full hip flexion and freedom of movement without pads that bend and contort. Another unique feature of Vigilante padded shorts and body armor is the construction. Most similar protective gear uses open cell foam padding because it’s soft, puffy, and breathable like a sponge. But sponges also retain water, which is the last thing you want when you start to sweat. Vigilante padded shorts and body armor use a high-density, low-profile closed cell foam padding sandwiched inside the breathable, wickable, four-way stretch mesh fabric. Simply put without all those adjectives, this means that you keep the flexibility and low profile of the closed cell padding while still wicking moisture away from your skin. The Vigilante tech padded shorts and body armor are designed to work together to give you a professional level of protection for any sport in any season at a recreational athlete’s price. And did we mention low-profile and lightweight? The Vigilante men’s tech padded shorts weigh only 8.8 ounces. Who knew protection, comfort, and price could weigh about the same as a cup of coffee?
