just use my azzpadz last weekend and they are good. they fit normally under your pants.i have them on when i drove up the mountains and felt like i was sitting on a booster chair,not really that bad though. it really minimize the impact when you slam on your butt. i felt confident with them on i even tried out some park stuff

Seems like I was waiting FOREVER for McDavid to release their snow sports line. Would read about various pros trying it out over the years, but it was never released. When I couldn't wait anymore I got the Crash Pad 2000 mesh short. Been using it for a couple seasons now. Works well. Notice they have a new version out too, the 2600, which has dry fabric for $10 more. These are the versions without the plastic tail shield.

I'm wondering if the Freeride is being discontinued, various sizes are hard to find and McDavid isn't showing it on their website. XSportsProtective seems to the only one carrying them in the US.

All they need to do is add a Thudd short with a dual density Hexpad in the tailbone, but they seem reluctant to do that.

Yes, they are low profile.

Threads like these makes me glad that I seem to have been born with no tailbone. Over a decade in action sports and even longer being a general idiot I have never had a bruised tailbone.

^^^ Human evolution at work The tailbone is vestigial anyways; no one needs it.

So you trying to say you are better than us tail wagers?

All it took was one fall on ice right onto it to cause problems. I blame the Lake Louise icemakers. Now I shall never bee the same.

Well I can't wait any longer so I am making my own pad at least for temporary use. Using a cheap high density foam camping mat and old spandex shorts. Let's see how this goes...

Has anybody tried out the Pro Tec IPS Hip Protector? I can't find Skeletools nor Azzpads in Spain and I'm not paying 80 for a 3d0 Burton hip pad... Specially when I've seen the Demon Flex Force X, which seems to be better at a lower price. It's a pity that I can't find it in any dealer in Spain...

Yes I have tried the Pro Tec IPS Hip Protector. I just returned it because it was practically useless. The tailbone protection is insufficient.

finally got to use the azzpad and it is well worth the money and then some. i landed on my ass hard, and i mean full on, a couple times on ICE and the only thing that came out of it was a sarcastic "ow". sitting down doesn't hurt one bit after today's shred but my legs/knees/elbows took a toll. haha. thanks azzpad! saved me from a visit to the emergency room.
