Aptly named Rival, the Rival Pro 5-Pad Girdle by McDavid is able to go toe-to-toe with some of the most appreciated products on the market. It boasts Flex Air protective padding with integrated multi-directional vented flex channels, which ensure an ergonomic range of motion as well as a perfect amount of airflow.
The four-way stretch mesh inserted in the groin area is also a big plus, as are the inner thigs that improve ventilation. Protection-wise, there’s a 5-pad impact protection coverage at the hips, tigh and tailbone areas, all of which follow the shape of the body nicely. Other highlights include a bio-shape design, an ultra comfort fit waistband, and a dual layer front panel cup pocket.
