Azzpad or Skeletools

Im really looking for tailbone protection for now, later on when i start going to the park though would it be in my better interest to get the skeletool considering i can add pads to it and it has them all over? Is it really bulky? Do I need all the other pads?

I picked up an Azzpad after I broke my tailbone after a day of icy conditions. It's not too bulky for the slightly baggy snowboarding pants I use (a pair of Nomis and a pair of Patagonia) with just a waist strap and then two velcro straps for your upper thighs. Pretty lightweight, and I only noticed it when I sit down on it.

Skeletools all the way!! With the pads, you pretty much dont feel anything when you fall. I also hip checked a tree last year during some rough conditions; came away unscathed, only some pine tree green on my pants that washed away. Well worth the money

I own both with full set of extra pads for the skeletools. Both are great but I find myself using the Azzpadz more.

So you think the more padding the better considering that all your upper legs and butt are protected.

Not necessarily more padding, but better located. And the padding that is there is pretty good. It is a little thick, only took a couple runs to get used to.

Not to hijack, but I'm curious to pads as well.
I'm a skinnier guy, and I'm wondering if one would fit better than the other? Are both fairly tight or loose? Also, do both have removable pads for washing, etc?

life IS good.

Im skinny as well, this would be good to know. Another thing i was thinking what about a football girdle? Looks pretty close to the skeletool and may be cheaper considering the season is over? Or do you guys think it wont have enough padding
