Low profile impact shorts?

I nearly broke my tailbone on an icy patch today, so my friend let me wear his "Azzpad"

It did a good job, but it made my ass look like the sun. I'm a really skinny dude, and the Azzpads were absurdly noticeable.

Anyone have a recommendation for a pair of impact shorts that aren't as pronounced? I wear slim fit pants, so something I could throw on under those would be awesome.

I was looking at the Red Total Impact shorts.

I will check those out!

Thankfully I live about 20 minutes from those guys, so I can see them first hand.

Would you say they would be noticeable in slim pants?

I recently bought the Demon Shield Padded shorts. Not real sure how they make my ass look, but they don't feel too bulky. They make my pants a tad bit tighter, but not bad. They have the hard plastic tail bone protector which is why I bought them. I've broken it a few times in motocross and then hit real hard riding a month or so ago and realized I needed something. It has hard plastic on the thighs too, but I removed them.

Thanks,

Jason

Demon makes a padded short called the Demon Skinn.

Very low profile. The protection isn't as good as some of the other products, but it is better than nothing and you can't tell you're wearing protection.
