Default Dainese vs Icetools protection

I'm looking to buy some protection. Shorts, jacket, and kneepads. Dainese seem pretty awesome but expensive. I came across another brand - icetools, but i don't know how good the gear is. Their price is definitely more reasonable.

I'll probably be spending 2-3 months in Italy, so i assume ill have no trouble finding some dainese to buy. But if it's good, and if i could somehow guess the sizing, i wouldn't mind ordering icetools from somewhere.

Generally, what's the difference between these two types of shorts? Dainese has similar models, one with just the soft padding, and one with more reinforcement.

Armor Pant | Icetools
Underpant | Icetools

If you are going to go for protection wear, and the metal security it offeres, why go cheap? The difference between the pants is as follows:

The underpant will keep your butt warm, and save your hips from a 3 foot monster kicker fall. It will be less noticeable while riding to you. It has better movement.
The Armor pant will keep your butt warm, and save your hips from a 5 foot monster kicker fall. It will be more noticeable while riding. But it will dissepate the impact force better thatn the first model.

The question I have is: How do you take a leak when wearing them? :P

Good point. I love the one piece undies that have a crapper opening.

Anyway, what do you mean by going cheap? I do find that i'm spending a lot of money on gear, and since i'm relatively poor (3rd world) i'm a bit afraid that i dented my actual riding fund for this year. Did you mean that i should go for dainese or something like that, or were you referring to these two different types?

I'd go for the armor ones rather than saving a few $$$, but i thought that it was maybe an overkill for snowboarding. Now when i look at them, i'm pretty sure it could be worn on top only at a BDSM club, but i initially thought that might be the difference. Like knee pads, should you wear plastic thats probably going to wear out your expensive pants, or just padding?
