After hanging all of your grenade ornaments, why not venture outside into the white fluffy stuff and embrace all that which winter and coldness is about. First, you’ll need to choose your sled. From the classic wooden toboggans to newer composite speed sleds, it doesn’t really matter what you choose as you’re going to be at the bottom of a hill regardless. When you were a kid, did you ever try to go down on your back end only to quickly realize that (1) it hurt and (2) your ass isn’t exactly very slippery on ice/snow? A trash bag or some other flimsy plastic material would allow you to go sledless though those are fragile and don’t last long at all. Too bad we didn’t have “Snow Shorts”.

Yet again, the phrase “I wish they had these when I was a kid” seems to fit in all too appropriately. The concept is extremely simple and yes, I’m kicking myself for not monetizing this idea first. A simple plastic plate with some padding affixed to the ass end of snow pants and now someone, somewhere is many dollars richer. Adults need not worry about those embarrassing moments that may arise when you get caught trying to fit into your kids’ Snow Shorts as they come in adult sizes too. As long as your waist is 42″ or smaller, your golden. Whew! Safe here.

Now for the part none of us like — the price. They’re actually pretty reasonable at $35.00 meaning you may as well order a couple. I’m definitely getting a pair as my head is already chock full scenarios in which these pants would be amazing. You down?
