skeletools back/hip pads?
i've heard the skeletools knee/elbow pads are pretty sweet, but anyone try the hip/back pads as well?

lots of coinage to drop on some pads sight unseen.

i got skeletool's padded nappy; i figured if it was good enuff for dirt bike riders, then it'd be good enuff for snow pack riders.

i was right! and in fact, several seasons later, i am still right. they rock!

and the guys at skeletool are also proper friendly and decent people. they exported to me in the UK in less than 2 weeks; paid thru paypal and i have nothing but good things to say about them and their products.

buy them. seriously. and compared to burton arse pads, they were cheap as chips and far more comfortable.

how are skeletools shorts compared to azzpadz? i kinda skimped last year and ended buying something a little on the cheapside and they didnt really do much. I know the skeletools are twice the price as azzpadz but do they really relieve some of the pain you would most likely get otherwise? Thanks

bizarre! when i bought skele they were half the price of azz!

the skele pads i got, are kinda in a slinky stretch material girdle, so there is no slip or movement; but it is completely porous and thus breathable; i think it is quite efficient at moisture wicking too.

the padding itself is dense foam and there are no out plastic shells; this seems to have no ill effect on performance, but allows complete freedom of motion, without getting an edge of a plastic plate whack you in the gonads....
