    six six one gear bomber shorts

    hey i am going to buy some more body armor for downhill biking

    for my chest/shoulders im going to get the 661 pro pressure suit
    http://sixsixone.com/Catalog_661Bike...8-e971d4274cee

    but for the hips i was wondering if you have opinions on the pro bomber shorts or bomber combo shorts
    pro:

    combo:
    http://sixsixone.com/Catalog_661Bike...5-edac4a2663aa

    the price diference isnt that important, but it seems like the pads on the combo wouldnt really help too much for bruises more for just scrapes and stuff, and i usually notice the brusing more which is why i wanted to get the pro, but also the pro looks like it might limit mobility too much

    any of you own any of the three?

    I have the combo, the foam is pretty thick and solid so it will work fine for bruises, theyre really comfy as well.

    do you think i should go for the pro to get the extra protection or will it restrict movement too much and is the combo enough ?

    I have the pro bombers - I really like them. Easy movement, mesh so they're not too hot, good protection. I even wear them under my snowboard pants.

    The pro bombers have hard plastic pads over the hips and tailbone - the combos just have soft pads.

    I don't use this brand, but I highly reccomend wearing some sort of protection under your riding shorts.

    I found the combo really hot, but the protection is not bad. I have been using the Fox ones.

    I use the pro ones...super nice and still easy to move it. Seems to me like the foams ones would be too thick. I know a acouple of other people who use the pros and like them also.

    I have a set of foam Fox and 661 Pro's with plastic. The main difference is it depends what pants you're wearing over them. If you have large shorts, then get the 661s, I haven't noticed much of a difference otherwise.
