If you cinch the straps tight enough it will stay in place. I've never had any issues with the Azzpadz moving when wearing them.

so im 5'2 and 115 lbs and will try the medium azzpadz...it doesn't seem that it has enough padding though and my butt is pretty flat...
can you put extra padding/towels, foams, etc. on the inside so that my bum/bones doesn't hit the plastic too hard?

i fell on my ass twice last week and have a hard time getting up right after, was in so much pain...

after that i got scared going down the hills completely so i want to be SUPER SAFE

Azzpads are really only good for tailbone protection. It's not going to protect you from falls on your ass cheeks or hips.

Im slightly taller around the same weight and have used the med azzpadz for 2 years now. Ive taken some nasty falls and had no problems of the pad moving out of place cept on the chairlift which make no difference. There is more than enough padding for falls unless of course you're jumping off 50 foot kickers. Then I dont think anything will help you. Maybe one of those giant bubble balls.

I'm so sorry I got them mixed up, didn't read post well.
You can not get extra pads for the Azzpadz. You are correct just the Skeletools

I have skeletools and it was the best investment I've ever made. Im a beginning snowboarder and i fall A LOT !! Not only do they offer a "butt load" of protection.... They make me a lot more confident when trying to learn new things.
