MSRP's about the same... what size you wear, REI has Pro-tec XL in stock for $40 on sale right now.,-black

Or ebay has a size large for $44.

New Pro-tec Ski Snowboard IPS Safety/protective Gear-mens Hip Pads-large-$70 | eBay

Not trying to push you one way or the other. Actually, the pro-tec ones are pretty nice but I would've preferred a more solid pad especially on the tailbone like they used to do in the RED impact shorts. If the Nike stuff is hard like *actual* football pads that I used to wear in high school, then I'd go with those. If it's just a foam pad, then it's a toss-up and I'd say go with which ever you can get a better deal on.

Where I'm riding this year:

Pine Knob - 14
Mt. Holly - 2
Treetops - 2
A-Basin - 2
Mt. Bohemia - 3
Mt. Brighton - 1
Caberfae - 2
Crystal Mountain - 1
