And just like with any piece of gear, you can buy ones with more or less protection based on needs. The Bauer Vapor and Supreme girdles are highly protective, and from all comments I've seen on them are identical to the pants beyond being tight fitting and no outer material.
I have a Bauer Supreme girdle and a Tackla 951 pant and they are definately not identical in terms of protection. Not saying that either one is better or worse, but they are not identical in body coverage. I find that my girdle actually has slightly thicker padding, but more gaps, while the pants have better overall coverage around the hips and waist. May be just the way they fit my body shape.
