    Are there any bib shorts that offer spine protection

    I had a rather unwelcome coming together with a tree yesterday, this was not anywhere near as bad however as the subsequent coming together with the ground.

    My camelbak protected my upper back but my lower spine and coccyx are extremely painful and this got me thinking. Are there any bib shorts that offer a bit of padding for that lower back and tailbone area?

    I'm not gnarr by any stretch of the imagination but surely there must be something for the AM/FR crowd who wear a camelbak etc?

    I've never seen bib shorts with lower back/tailbone padding. There are lots of non-bib options, though. I like the Fox Titan race shorts pretty well.

    Looking for the same thing as last Saturday my buddy fell on the track and had to have a lower back surgery to relieve the pressure off his spinal cord. He couldn't feel anything under the waist prior to the surgery let alone move a toe. Scary...

    The pain in my lower back was scary enough, can't imagine how scared your friend must've been. I hope he's feeling better.

    FYI I'm looking at these: Google

    Demon Mens Skinns Top | Snowboard Body Armour / Protective Wear | Action Snowboards

    Spine VPD Vest - POCSPORTS.COM

    Sorry, don't know how to do the fancy linky thing
