Review: Recently, my baseball sliders shorts crapped out on me. Instead of buying more, I decided to just let it "slide" (forgive the pun) and wait a little while until the season slowed down a bit so I had the time to go through the hassle of ordering some real paintball slider shorts online. I found the Empire Ground Pounder Slider Shorts (SE) on multiple websitesand decided to give them a try.
When they arrived in the mail, I was so excited. Upon opening the packaging, I was both appreciative and dissapointed.

First of all, the definition for these slider shorts on EVERY website said that they have "a removable man-pad" for those who dare to live on the edge. This is either advertising B.S. or a typo that just stuff through copy-and-pasting from another product. I tend to think the latter is the case. Regardless, these shorts DO NOT have a "removable man-pad". They do have padding in front of the crotch though, but DEFINITELY not enough to stop a paintball from giving your boys a nasty beating. However, if you are wearing paintball PANTS with protection in tandem with these slider shorts, you will be alright.
Second, another perk advertised about these shorts is padding for your tail-bone in case you fall on your rear end to prevent a nasty goose-egg that could last for weeks. These shorts DO have padding on the back, but unfortunately the designers put it up too high and it protects your lower back and not your tail-bone.

What I DID like about these shorts is their breathability and thigh protection. Your thigh WILL NOT get bruised if you are wearing these shorts!!! The padding wraps from your hamstrings to the tops of your quads and is very thick. These are PERFECT for sliding into bunkers. You will not get those lovely rasberries we hold so dear.
Second, the breathability of these shorts is god-like and is very durable. Every seem is triple-stitched and will last a lifetime. The venting keeps the air moving from front to back and wicks sweat away from your body very well like the review says. I love it. They are very comfortable and breezy. MUCH better than baseball slider shorts or any other alternative.
Conclusion: In conclusion, I would reccommend these shorts for anyone who wants some light, mobile padding used in tandem with paintball pants. I LOVE them because they fit my style of fast-paced in your face play. They give me protection without hindering my game in any way.

However, if your looking for some shorts that will make you invincible to paintballs, go ahead and keep looking.

Thats why i got them, i needed something with a man pad and i got these and i was pissed. Payed enough money for them and you get something that does not protect the boys
