Seems like one of the best on the market, however, I was looking for great tailbone protection. The pads for the hips or sides of the waist are great, very thick and padded. The tailbone protection pad is not thick enough for me and I still got a bit hurt when falling down. :p I will have to customize my own to get what I really want. These pants are great if you fall on your sides a lot, but again not as much coverage as I would have liked for tailbone. For some, however, they may be great. The pants are comfy and not too obtrusive. I mean I could still get my snowboard pants on over them and zipped. Hope this helps!
