I'm 5'8 129lbs so these pads fit me really well. They are breathable and for the most part stay put while riding. I wore a base layer over them and they didn't look bulky and you don't even notice them under snowpants. I would recommend buying a size smaller because they do run a tad big. Otherwise I love them they are comfy and protect your hips and tailbone really well.
they're pretty tight around the waist, but they sit very high, i'm 5'5 and 110 lbs and went with the smalls, they have a little give to them. but dogfunk is great about returns, so if they dont fit, send 'em back

This hip guard is awesome. They're comfortable and keeps your butt warm when its super cold out and yet, in the spring its cool cause its breathable. I bought them last season and i don't remember a time when my butt was hurting after a day of riding. This season I'm going to hit those jibs at bear again, RECKLESSLY, cause I know i can rely on my hip guard. Try them out and stop the acting tough CRAP! No one will know your wearing them anyway! ;)

Learned how to snowboard in the crunchy and often icy New England conditions and they did an Okay job providing coverage to the tailbone and hips. However, they don't fit right since they were bulkier at the hips and didn't provide coverage at the gap between the hip pads and lower pads. I happen to fall on that very spot a lot and winded up getting pretty banged up there, so I don't recommend it if you're built smaller (I'm 5'3", 108lbs and wore an XS but still found it pretty big) and would go for a butt pad that provides more coverage.

They are on the bulky side, but that's in my favor since I fall a lot. They definitely work and take most of the impact. I've ridden without them and paid the price, won't do that again.
They fit, but my only complaint is that the elastic waistband is really tight. I got a M bc I figured I'd order up since they would be tight anyway and they fit in the leg and everywhere else but the waistband digs into my hip bones and leaves them pretty sore by the end of the day.
I'm thinking a L would be too big in the leg/butt so I'm just toughing it out and hoping the waistband stretches out.

This pants fit me great except for the supertight elastic band at the top which managed to actually cut the skin on top of my hips from all the pinching it was doing. Also, in the two hours that I wore them I managed to take a fall on some ice and the padding that was there did nothing for me at all.

I bruised my tail bone early in the season and was afraid that I would be in imminence pain if I were to fall on it again so I bought these pads to help protect it and love them. They not only protect my butt but also keep it warm. However they are alittle bulky so I suggest wearing them under larger size pants or Guys pants.

I liked these pads, but I ended up returning them due to the puffy factor. You really need to have a big pair of snow pants in order to fit em in, and if your snow pants are tight on the pads, you can see every groove of the pads themselves(which looked a bit funny). I was sad to return them because I really wanted a product that would keep my butt warm on the lift, but I'm a short 5'0" lady and the bulk in the waist was just too much for me, but go with them if you don't mind the bulk and bagginess.

Pants fit great with exception of waist band which is unforgivingly tight! It's almost like they put the wrong size band on the shorts. The padding is great. I'm thinking of making some alterations to the waist band since the rest of the shorts fit great!

I bought these pads for snowboarding. After trying them on under my snow pants, I decided not to keep them. They made me feel and look REALLY bulky. The padding seems very sturdy, and I am sure they make for some safer landings. But, I was looking for something with tailbone protection, not the thigh/hip padding too.

These definitely have a lot more padding than other brands out there and they feel a lot more secure. However, they had a little TOO much padding for me. I could barely even get my snowboard pants up above my thighs (and they are normally not that tight). I would say that they add about 2 inches to your sides and butt...so if you can get your pants on then they are going to be really snug.
