Yup... my first pair of pants had really thick padding. I couldn't feel a thing if I got hit.

Of course I eventually outgrew them (waist too big, pants too short) and bought a pair of cheap-o pants that have flimsy and thin padding in comparison.

I don't really need it though since I don't play at a very competitive level.
