I'm not much bigger than you. I'm a 34 I got the large and they were fine.
As I mentioned before the Azzpadz are a little more uncomfortable on the chair but I don't consider that but needed to mention it again. They both shift around a bit on me so you still need to adjust a little especially after exiting the lift, I just give a little push down and off I go on the slope.

I like them both:
  • Jumps: Skeletools doubled up
  • Park: Azzpadz

I dont want to beat this thread to death, but has anyone tried the "Crash Pads 2500 Padded Shorts with Tail Shield" ? It has padding/shield/padding on the tailbone area?

I am in the same boat as the OP, and I guess my question would be, why do you recommend the Azzpadz in the park over Skeletools? Just from a comfort level? Because from the pictures, it seems like the Skeletools have a wider protection area? Please correct me if im wrong.

Thanks,
Russ.

Russ,

The Azzpadz have a little more plastic in them to help shield me from hits on the boxes and rails.
The Skeletools I bought extra padding as you see, and I double them up when I'm doing jumps to help add more cushion. The Azzpadz extra plastic can actually, hurt if you hit it just right. Then again any crash with/without pads can end up hurting.

As everyone knows I'm newer to the sport and in my 40's so I need all the protection I can get. I don't work, I don't get paid, and I need to work to provide for the family. That said, YES you could use either and be good. I was just showing pics of the pads and what my preference was. I don't want anyone to buy 2 sets of pads but I was trying to be as honest/helpful as I could by providing detailed pics and my limited experience.

Both, for me are great products and either one would be a good investment.

I am a new boarder and new to this forum, and 46 -- wish I had taken up this sport much earlier! Just wanted to say thanks for the this thread. I picked up the Azzpadz at the end of last season, so I haven't had a chance to try them yet. It is nice to know they work, and that other people use them (feel a little silly wearing them but have an old tailbone injury and took some nasty falls last year).

All the best!

Zoombang stuff works pretty good. I like it better than the Demon hard plastic shorts

You mean Dainese? They make good stuff but kind of overpriced for what it is. Same with their motorcycle stuff, their full racing suit is good but it has a reputation as a one crash suit at the track as compare to suits from Halo or Wolf.

Kinda a dumb question here but i'm curious. Impact shorts or whatever they are by different names pretty much soften the landing when you land on your ass, and offer more protection falling on that area in general?

Yes. They'll soften the blow but you'll definitely still feel it, however they do keep the bruising to a minimum. I definitely recommend them.
