Not my favorite

I have worn these a couple of times and I cannot find anything good to say about them. I purchased these because they are Alpinestars, so they must be decent, right? I was wrong because aside from being light weight, these are sub par. They are a bit snug at the leg openings so I find them to be uncomfortable. The foam padding feels thin and low quality as well.

My overall thoughts are if you are looking for a cheap pair of impact shorts, and you do not need a lot of protection then these may be okay for you. However, if you are looking for protection from shorts that are supposed to work properly during an impact, then I would spend a little bit more and get something better.
