If you look at the human hip, the biggest bony protuberance is the greater trochanter, which is a part of the femur (thigh bone). This prominence sits BEHIND the midline of the hip when viewed from the side. The TUG padding is entirely IN FRONT OF the midline, thus, providing absolutely no coverage for the greater trochanter. This is a very bad design that does not provide protection as advertised. I shipped it right back.
