Paintball Slide Shorts
Paintball slide shorts are a great extra piece of protective gear to keep your legs and butt safe and bruise-free. Speedball rounds as well as woodsball scenarios that require jumping, sliding, and diving can do a lot of damage to your upper legs and rear-end. However, having the right kind of slide shorts can help cushion the impact and keep you from getting injured. Take a look at our ultimate guide to elbow pads, knee pads, gloves and slide shorts below for a great comparison of the best contenders:
Infamous PRO DNA Slide Pants Gen 2
The Infamous Pro DNA Slide Pants Gen 2 offers minimalist padded protective gear without excess bulk. It features DNA moisture-wicking technology to accelerate sweat evaporation, keeping the wearer dry. The product has new abrasion-resistant printing, enhancing its lifespan. Targeted compression zones warm and prepare major muscle groups, while key padding placement offers protection for the groin, hips, and knees. Specialized Dual-Density memory pad technology redirects force and molds to the body contours for thin, yet massive protection. The gear has a tight compression fit with foam padding for impact absorption. However, if a less tight fit is preferred or if in between sizes, sizing up is recommended.

It features new high-density molded protection for the thighs and hips, combined with the FreeFlex Relief System.
