The football one you linked to only has little quarter inch little soft foam nubs (more around the edge to try to deflect the impact a tiny bit)... because football players typically play on a relatively soft grassy field and rarely land on their tailbone. I doubt it will protect you much if you slipped out on your edge on a icy patch and slammed straight onto your tailbone. The link you had doesn't have a good photo of the tailbone... here is another link

Skeletools impact shorts.wmv - YouTube!
Even the tailbone protector doesnt look that great though

Just buy a pair of Azzpadz from XSportsProtective or AllSportsProtection, both have like 30-day return policy (Skeletools return policy isn't very good, 7 days and there is a 15% restocking fee).

Nike Adult Pro Combat Hyperstrong 3/4 Girdle - Dick's Sporting Goods
How about something like this? At least with these i can go check them out at the store

I do like them more for the hip padding though. When I work on my spins I use the skeletools.
Plus the Azzpadz just have a bit better tailbone "coverage area" and a bit better hard plastic shell.
Hope this helped

|eli783||ive always been torn between the two. I remember someone saying the azzpad felt like sitting on a booster seat on the lift lol|

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).

Not to hijack, but I'm curious to pads as well.
I'm a skinnier guy, and I'm wondering if one would fit better than the other? Are both fairly tight or loose? Also, do both have removable pads for washing, etc?
