forgot to mention the azzpadz have a hard plate on the entire tailbone.. not just a thin piece of plastic. It also have a lil bit of padding on the hip.. not enough to cover the entire hip but towards that back end.

Only problem with the nice pair on the tips site is, who knows how good the foam actually is. It'd be nice if there was a set of standards and people got their shit tested :P

If you want protection that actually works, look at products that carry CE ratings - such as motorcycle gear. If it'll save your ass when you crash going 60mph onto the pavement on a motorcycle, it'll definitely save your ass when you bail doing 30mph on a snowboard.

I highly recomend sketools. No too bulky and they have saved my ass about a hundred times. I couldn't find them in the local ski/skate shops but they ship fast from the website. But if you ride a bike, motorcycle shorts work well too.

Icetools - Professional Snowboardequipment | Bags - Technical Equipment

^flash site so go to protection

they have some sick protection gear! check it out. I saw the stuff in a store in austria and may I say ... they were fucking awesome. I don't know if they have a USA store, but if you need protection I would def go the extra mile and try to find that shit.

the full body armor is just amazing

i believe in the original crash pads. they dont restrict movement are light weight made in the us and great protection best one is pro pant 2500, and the upper body 6100 great with it. check it out crash-pads.com also has hard tail shield in between 2 pieces of foam. Great products.
