The RED Impact Short has always provided an affordable lower body armor. The drawback is the padding isn’t as complete but it does cover the vitals where you are most bony…. aka your tail bone and hips. The problem is fine if you hit your butt cheeks you must rely on what god gave you. If you have sad thin little cheeks like the editor you should look for something else or just deal with hand size bruises there. It’s not easy to piss with em either. Is it too hard to ask for a fly?
