I used to own both, but now I only wear the Azzpadz as they are less restrictive (at the tradeoff of hip/thigh protection) I did sew on extra d30 inserts to protect my hips a little (also glued a d3o pad right on the tailbone).

Both will give you excellent tailbone protection. If you are still out of control and liable to crash in any position (or into rails), then go skeletools.

I'm 5'9 150 lbs... but when I started wearing these pads I was only 140 lbs (most gained in upper body).

Both fit a skinnier person fine. Only the skeletools has removable pads when you machine wash it (I hand wash the azzpadz just by soaking it in the sink in some woolite/oxyclean).
