Just picked up a pair of 08/09 Red impact shorts I found new for cheap. They feel good on, but I'll know about impact when I bust my ass this year lol.. Im going to get another pair of this years (can't find the older model anymore) in a bigger size since my weight fluxuates a lot depending on the time of year (yeah, gym rat).....

Agree on RED Impact Shorts.
I've tried two other brands (Demon, can't remember the other brand), and found RED easily the most comfortable.
Doesn't matter how good or how much the padding if you aren't gonna wear them.

I have a pair of Nike Compression shorts (combat pro line) with a tailbone and thigh pads. They are more of a football style short, but i got them at Ross for 10$ compared to a sticker of 50$ so i couldnt say no lol. Havent had the chance to try them out yet.

I have a cheapie pair of those Red Impact shorts that look like board shorts. They're fine and WAY better than nothing. I use them for light hockey practice as well.

Skeletools. You can take the pads out to wash the pants and you can buy a second set of pads to double the protection if you want. Best Impact shorts IMOP
