Padded shorts for rollerblading: Aren't those bulky?
The words "padded shorts" may make you think of clothing that's bulky, uncomfortable, and restricts your movement. On the contrary, today's padded skateboard shorts are lightweight, subtle, and technical. Padded shorts for inline skating are made with built-in foam pads that range in thickness from a quarter-inch to a half-inch. Thicker pads will obviously provide more impact absorption and protection but also slightly more bulk. Some rollerblading padded shorts use a combination of soft foam and hard plastic (typically over the tailbone). Each manufacturer will design skateboard padded shorts a little differently, but pad coverage is most important for the hips, tailbone, upper thigh, sit bones, and hip pointers.
