Once I was behind a tree and I was getting shot at alot and a ran out and slid behind some bushes and hit him once and then I shot him and I thought no one was there so I stood up (bad mistake) and I got shot in the private...
I would recomend this but to get the right size for my legs I had to buy a pair and another pair for a different cup becuase the other was to small.

Ambush HP regged tank
Very little padding
Fit too small
Expensive for what you get
I got these mainly to protect myself south of the border. They fit a bit like bike shorts with minimal padding on the sides and a foam soft cup. I wear a 36 pant in the waist. So, I ordered the XL of the Raven Slide shorts figuring they would fit like most things of an XL size. Wrong.
They feel like they are two sizes too small. Not necessarily uncomfortable, just very snug. This also makes the cup not sit quite right.
There are other brands of slide shorts that have butt, upper and side thigh padding, that are around the same price and probably fit the way they should.
Don't. There are better shorts out there for around the same amount of money. If you can find them cheap, then fine. But don't pay full price.

Keeps the family jewels from being pinged. Which is exactly why you should buy them. I had a bounce off Capt. Happy in a game and it dropped me. I sat in the bunker for 2 minutes before I could resume playing. Just in time to get bunkered. The protection on the thighs is great!
Soft cup is a little small (no i'm not bragging) and it moves around and exposes you sometimes. But I still think I'm better off with it than without it.
Good product. Paintball should be fun! Being doubled over because you caught one in the crotch is not fun. If you're going to play rough wear a cup.
a normal cup?....does not compare! The Raven slider shorts are so much better.
Custom Products Lightning Drop Forward w/ ASA adaptor
New Designz Equalizer Bolt
ND Front Cap
Gives you protection, not just from paintballs, but from the natural surroundings, like sliding into a bunker, or running through the woods quickly.
Very comfortable, made out of good material.
They are made out of breathable fabrics, which is good, so you dont start sweating like a madman as soon as you put them on!
They are made by Raven USA!
I dont know about you, but I am getting tired of seeing JT stuff all around the place, so its nice to have Raven stuff! (Well, I know nobody can see you wear these, i hope....but at least you are wearing something Raven!)
Nothing! Maybe a tad more padding, but that is minor!
A great product! I recommend it to every paintball player. It is cheaper than JT's or Dye's slider shorts. It has saved my butt numerous times, and it is SO much more comfortable than wearing a cup...
I am giving it a Ten for a reason...because its a really good product!

Seems like the 'cup' is THE topic of conversation for these especially compared to DYE. Well these shorts have a removable foam jock. I took it out and its flexible. When you put the shorts on you slide it into place. I wouldn't say it's a great fit but it does the job and gives you a pretty nice side profile. I'm not going to have someone shoot me in the jewels just to try out how effective it is.
As for the rest of the shorts, they fit pretty snug. I'd recommend ordering a size bigger than you wear. I have pretty muscular legs and these shorts are a tad on the tight side.
Movement though doesn't seem to be hindered by wearing these shorts. I feel like i can move just as freely.
There is a TINY bit of padding in the thigh area. IT's not much but it's there, i was kind of hoping for more.
No padding for the butt. They're suppose to be slider shorts, there should be some padding in the rear area but there isn't.
They fit small so order larger.
Jock doesn't fit great but it's on ok fit.
No mesh to help the area breathe like Dye has.
Overall if you're looking to protect your jewels and dont' want to wear a hard cup, i'd recommend Raven over Dye. It has a real foam flexi cup that you can remove. Padding's a little sparce otherwise but overall these shorts are a good buy. I have them a 9 because of no butt padding and very thin thigh padding.
