I am looking to invest in some padded shorts and came across this post from Croc which should be quite useful for anyone looking into getting some:

Hi, my Mc David derby shorts are size S. They're the ones I use for bouts because they're slimmer and shorter and yes, I'm that vain :lol:
The Red total impact shorts offer better protection so I wear them each practice. I fell countless times of course and sonetimes, I fell very hard on it and never felt a thing.
I couldn't read the label any more but fortunately a little search through my emails says I ordered size S.

To throw another option in the mix I'm using Dainese Action Short Protection; removable hardshell patches with further soft pads.
http://www.dainese.com/uk_en/multisport-winter/action-short-protection.html
A bit pricey, but I found my cheaper Demon shorts (soft padding) didn't protect where I tend to fall/sit when snowboarding so wasn't convinced they'd stand up to a hard floor - and my hip definitely wasn't :(
Red Total Impact (D3O) nearly had me, but I felt the D3O sections didn't cover enough area, esp hip, and wasn't enough soft padding backing it up. They were really thin on though.

If not 100% sure but I don't think you are allowed to have hardshell on your shorts.

10.1.3.1 Chin guards, form fitting shields such as nose guards, turtle shell bras, tailbone protectors and shin guards may have a hard protective shell. No other optional protective gear may have a hard protective shield.

hardshell tailbone and hip sections, all of which can be removed.

Tailbone would be fine, hip sections would have to come off.

I read it that form fitting shields may have a protective shell. I think "such as a, b and c" only gives examples?

It is rather ambiguously worded especially as the second sentence says no other optional protective gear can. I'd assume that having hard shells near or on a legal contact area wouldn't be allowed, but it would probably be best to ask the ref's prior to a bout unless a clear consensus has been reached.

So after 2 weeks, my ass and pelvis are still sore after a couple of falls to the cocyx so am very reluctantly conceding I might need some crash pants.
Can anyone give me anyore recent advise than what was last noted here over a year ago?

I have the Mc David shorts, they offer some light protection but not as solid as Blizz's. I think the triple 8's look ok too and would probably give more protectoin than mcdavid's. I can lend you mine to try on wednesday if you want though x

Only in roller derby would you have a 'my butt's bigger than yours' argument ;-)
