I've not seen any gear that protects tail bone well! I only add when attempting something new, or ice conditions. Its your AZZ. Do what you want.

I took hard falls on other parts of my body, it seems that my tailbone gets I juried the easiest. My arms, wrists and hands take hits and do fine, just the darn tailbone!

Having safety gear does not prevent injury, in most cases, it only serves to alleviate the severity of impacts. Case in point, Michael Schumacher. Having a helmet did not prevent a head injury, but it did keep him from dying outright. I am a seasoned snowboarding, but knowing how to fall has not prevented me from spraining my wrists once in awhile.

I took one to my tailbone two years ago that I felt for 1/2 that season. Sucks and I feel your pain... injuries gonna happen.

Injuries are unavoidable. Better equipment just helps avoid or lesson the extent of the injury. I accept the unavoidable. Will hot tub the rest.
