Pro style, black compression shorts with extra padding for the tail (coccyx), hips and thighs. Perfect for skiers, snowboarders and goalkeepers. As used by French handball player Luka Karabatic.
Measure around the waist, above the hips. If you are between sizes, please choose the larger size.
McDavid Thudd HexPad Shorts feature the patented HexPad technology for protection and comfort. The HexPad is a hexagonal patterned mesh of flexible fabric that provides extra protection for the tail (coccyx), hips and thighs.
Traditional padding and compression supports have been bulky and uncomfortable to wear. The thickness of the material often leaves the wearer feeling hot, sweaty and uncomfortable. McDavid's hDc Moisture Management system wicks away sweat to improve comfort, making them the choice of many top athletes.

Best girdle for the gridiron! No need for slotting pads in game pants. Doesn't restrict movement when running and doesn't shift.

I'm a keeper who's currently working my way back from a groin and hernia injury that's kept me out for the last 6 months. I bought these shorts on the basis that they were compression shorts (and would help support and keep warm both the groin and hernia areas as I get back to playing), but also offered the added bonus of padding to offer some added protection.
I've not yet had a chance to play in these yet, but on first impression I am disapointed that the main material is very thin (like a heat gear style top). I'd hoped that it would be a thicker material (either like the cold gear equipment or the neoprene compression shorts). I do think to describe these as compression shorts is a bit misleading, but I'm sure they'll still be of use.
In summary, if you want something that just offers added protection as you're throwing yourself about, this is probably not a bad purchase. If you want them as a compression short, there are much better alternatives available.

Great for basketball, i've been taking charges like mad in games. Been getting hits by people and aren't hurting at all. No sweat on the shorts at all. This is a must buy product!!!
