Well considering how baggy most snow pants are, you don't even see a difference.
And Tarzanman, I disagree. Those triangle designs which are what 90% of those impact short designs are, which are made specifically for protecting the tail bone. If you think about it, what it's essentially doing is making the first point of contact on that small padded area when you land in attempts to cushion it. It's just focusing the area of contact on that area of impact which when you hit hard is not exactly a smart design so no, it's not minor importance.
A proper design should spread out the absorbing of the impact so that not just one area takes the blunt of the force which is exactly what those shorts can do. The design of the skeletools spreads out the impact so when I hit hard it doesn't feel a small area of the cushion trying to shove up my crack but rather the whole butt takes the hit as your human body was design. Your butt cheeks are there for a good reason when you sit down. IMO those designs are just removing the principal behind them thinking that by just cushioning the tail bone it will thus protect it better. It doesn't in my experience and actually makes it worst by focusing the hit on that one area to shove the so called cushion on your tail bone since it sticks out on the padding and thus with a hard enough it, hurting it a lot.
Government - If you think the problems they created are bad, just wait until you see their solutions.
Screw being normal
