    I highly recommend a separate girdle for the thigh, hip, and tailbone pads. Then just slide your game or practice pants over the padded girdle. They make it easy to launder filthy practice pants mid-week as you don't need to deal with loading/unloading pads all the time. I wish I'd had one when I was playing in high school. That and a padded chinstrap. And if you play offensive or defensive line, get a pair of padded gloves. They're worth it.
