As football moves forward, so does McDavid. The Thudd Short has always been a favorite and now it has been updated with extra protection. On the thighs is 14mm Hex™ padding that gives full-on protection from hits. At the hips and tailbone, 9mm padding protects without getting in the way of your mobility. The pads are held by compression technology that is designed to support large muscles, helping to reduce soreness. The fabric is kept cool and dry with hDc™ Moisture Management Technology. Six-thread flatlock seams are strong but never cause uncomfortable rubbing on the skin. Includes a cup pocket. Approved for play at all levels. 80% nylon/20% spandex. Imported.
