got impact shorts after a bad crash where i grew a 3rd ass cheek and now have permanent hematoma. Only really wear them when i ski park all day or want to learn new stuff which isn't a lot anymore.
Helmet, Spine protector dealy + impact shorts. I don't find they get in the way at all, you get used to them really quickly.
Impact shorts are vital so the FKS heelpiece doesn't try to make gentle love to me if I backslap.
I used to wear a mouthguard for jumping to stop concussions, but then i broke 3 teeth on a rail so now i wear one for rails too
