    I use these Bohn Body Armor while riding both my motorcycle and DH bike. They work. I've "tested" them on occasion.
    To prepare for a race there is nothing better than a good pheasant, some champagne and a woman.

    That looks overkill and really bulky. I ride downhill at a ski resort in eastern pa think this would do? http://m.*****sportinggoods.com/prod...uctId=18796216

    I use the Rockgardn ones like on this page but there are a lot of choices.

    I use a pair of baseball sliding shorts. It covers hips and thighs.

    I bought a pair of the Demon Flex Force x d30 padded shorts for snowboarding last season. I used them mountain biking the other day and they were pretty comfortable. They might work for you.
