Football girdles and hip pads are designed to protect your thighs, hips, and tailbone. There are two different types of equipment that are utilized. There is the stand alone 6 pocket girdle, which provides upper leg compression and has openings for thigh, hip, spine and jock pads. The second type. which has become very popular, is the integrated girdle with sewn in pads, This piece of gear comes in 3pad (hips and spine) and 5 pad models (including thigh pads).
Our strongest vendor in this category is McDavid, their girdles are lightweight, the sewn in pads sit firmly yet comfortably, and the sweat wicking material keeps you dry on the field. What was once a somewhat uncomfortable part of your uniform has become a lightweight and muscle saving piece of equipment.
