Beware the size specified on the size chart is not correct. I ordered women large which supposed to be waist 29+ but the actual size of the women large size has a waist of 32/33+. The tail bone protection is good but it would be better if the pad here can be slightly longer to cover a bit lower at the bottom. I am not sure if I have this issue due to the size of the pant is now too big for me. Also the two pads on both sides of the tail bone should be thicker (denser and harder) so it would give better protection in the area. All the other paddings (tailbone, hips and leg sides) are pretty thick and strong but leaving the two sides of the tail bone a small, very thin and "weak" pad which does not help to protect at all. I am thinking of returning this pant because of the poor fitting. But I am checking to see if I can find something better than this one first.
