Talking Butt protection?

I'm looking to get some. What are some good brands/models to look at? I know nothing at all except that I probably should get some.

The azzpads don't look too comfortable.

I think something that look like bike shorts (short but tight fitting) with pads would be best.

I've heard of azzpadz, red impact shorts, and some people wearing hockey pads (for a lot of protection!

Look into Motocross products, I have a pair of tight bike shorts with hip and tailbone pads, much cheaper too.
try SixSixOne
while your there look into the knee/shin guard protection if you ride rails.

On my first season I bought a butt protector, but only because I fracture my coccyx and I wasn't going to let that stop me from riding that season. They worked fine, but after I healed I found them to be very uncomfortable for everyday riding.

I bought of ebay, they were tight shorts with padding built inside, I tried looking for them but could not find them.

A friend has these. The tailbone pad is actully kind of thin. But like people have already said, there are cheaper alternatives that work just as well. Hockey gear is one, football is another. If I want to wear a tailbone pad, I just get my football girdle (holds the tail/hip pads), and just put the tailbone pad in it. Total cost, about $20. And my football tail bone pad is thicker than my friends offical "crash pads." On thing to note though if you go the football route, is that the tailbone pads come in different sizes. Try to get the largest one you can find. And yes, I also play football, badly.

I have Crash Pads 2500. These really have excellent protection for your tailbone and butt. I have looked and tried several different sets until I settled on these. Crash Pads, Inc. | Product

I have worn these for the past two seasons, and I love them. They are comfortable and non-restrictive. The pillow like knee pads are great for binding up after lift riding as I like to get up on my toe edge.

I totally recommend these.
