if you are refering to the skeletools ones, I'm a 36 and I bought the large. They are snug but not uncomfortable.
I wore them yesterday trying to learn 180*'s and they were a WIN. I ordered the extra pads since I was ordering and I love the extra padding in the arse so worth it!!! No pain at all from yesterday, and trust me, I hit the ground hard a few times.

I use Serius impact shorts. Not a hardcore crash-pad, more of an extra foam padded layer on hips & tailbone. Best thing about these are that they are flexible (hardly know they are there) and keep your ass from getting cold when sitting on the snow. Impact protection is minimal, so it's probably better for an intermediate all mountain rider.

ill throw out one more positive note about the azzpadz. Unlike the other impact shorts its just a belt that you strap around your waist and two velcro elastic strips that wrap around your leg. That means if you have to hurry to the bathroom and you got to get ur gear off it comes down in seconds. Or if your dressing up in your car and have ur pants and boots on already then realized you forgot to put ur azzpadz on bam unbuckle your pants strap the padz on and you dont have to worry about taking all your shit off again. Or another scenario. Your wearing your azzpadz and your taking a noob friend up on the hill with you and you notice them falling every 5 feet. Take the padz off and hand them to your friend. Will take like 2 mins max.
Last scenario. Its the end of the day and you dont feel like changing all your clothes in your car, but you dont feel like wearing impact shorts the entire ride back. Not a problem with azzpadz because they go on and off in like 1 min flat.
Now if you were just wearing impact shorts you'd have to take all ur gear off in order to put that back on or take off. Just something to think about.

Ive tried a bunch of impact shorts and these are by far the best ones ive used. Taken large spills on really high jumps straight onto my tailbone and these have taken the impact really well. Rode away with nothing broken and no bruises.

I use planet altitudes impact shorts. I chose them cause they're not bulky but seem to provide good protection. So far so good. I dont do crazy jumps...but it helps a lot on the ice coast. You still feel the impact...but so far...no aching tail bone this season. Keeps you warm too during cold days, pads dont move as they're not plastic inserts and when it is warmer...its very breathable. Im anything but a 100 day a year rider but they've held up decently after about 15 trips.

I agree w/ the poster above me though regarding the azzpadz....the one thing i dislike about my shorts is that i cant really take them off before getting into the car without exposing myself...lol
