Threads because I'm looking for some to. Tired of getting hip and butt shred from icy landings. I was looking at POC's shorts, they look pretty nice and slim fitting and appear to have the most coverage of any short. I have a buddy that does pretty well of with a pair of REDs aswell.

Foam, no matter how supposedly impact ready it is, isn't going to do shit if you slide out on a box or rail. If you do get impact shorts make sure you get something with D3o or VPD whatever other knock offs have popped up out there. If you don't know what D3o is, google that shit, because it's amazing.
Got the demon snow d30 pads this year and they've been so worth it. Lets you keep throwing down on icy east coast days without coming home black and blue. Low profile enough to wear under my proper-fitting snowpants, maybe even skinnies. Only downside is they don't breathe well.
