    LP has a new padding option: Air Padding.
    Price is comparable to the Ice padding. Does anyone have an experience with the Air padding and how it compares to the Ice for wear, breathability, wash, etc?

    I haven't used it personally though I have seen it. The claim is it give the coverage/protection of the regular padding but is more breathable. I personally like my ears not being covered so I will stick with the ice padding.

    I cannot answer any of your comparison questions, but if this would be of any help, I can take and post pictures of my son's LP mask with air padding.

    If you are uncertain what to get, get both. Air and Ice paddings are interchangeable and meant to be replaced when they wear out. A set is around $50 or so.

    I got the impression from reading information on LP web site that Air is supposed to be the next step up in breathability, after Ice.
