Looking at some new pants. I'm trying to upgrade to something a bit more substantial so my butt don't always hurt after falls. Are nicer pants usually more padded in that area, or is the padding more concentrated in the thigh, hip, and spine area? I'm also between sizes, would getting say a small be better or medium? I'm worried about the length since I got long legs...if I went with a small I'd be afraid of there being a gap between my shins and pants...or does it not matter since the length is no different or very little difference? And then any recommendations on a pant? I'm seeing some older Bauer Supreme 5000 pants cheap, are they pretty nice?
