The fact that these provide coccyx protection (tailbone terminology) is an absolute blessing and make these shorts worth it. The additional cushioning on the thighs is a nice feature as well and for 48 bucks, I am not disappointed. I am wearing these in the dead of Arizona summer though so they can make things a bit hot. However, in comparison to Iraq, they probably aren't all that hot. The protection is worth the swamp @$$ and I believe this would help tremendously during a crash (as opposed to nothing at all)

Perhaps not ideal for bicycling. The padding is good and the fit is very comfortable but the way the hip pads are placed they do interfere a little with the pedal stroke. The pads need a hinge or gap or something so they bend with the rider.
Multiple crashes with minimum thigh and hip damage.
Ive got a season on my pair now , worth every penny. Has a nice padded crotch area that helps prevent monkey butt if you are always on the seat.
