Another type of shorts from one of the best companies on the market, Empire! The 06 Empire shorts have a removable man-pad for those who want to live on the edge and come at an affordable price. These shorts are made from Lycra and Polyester to ensure durability and comfort.
The Empire Ground Pounder Slide Shorts are newer, so they should be commonly available, both new and used.

They are cheap, and the padding isnt too poorly constructed, breathe well
The stiching on the padding is terribly constructed, and fall apart
The stiching on the padding is terribly constructed, and fall apart on me. After one time using them, i am distgusted by these terrible shorts. The 05's were so much better, and they deserve a better score, but for these to be getting a 10 out of 10 is appauling. At best, if the pads didnt fall apart on them they would have gotten an 7 or 8, but with this poor construction i can never even dream to give these over a 3.
These pants are OK, but they fall apart pretty easy if you play hard. I suggest you go for the 05's and not the 06's.
Lots of padding
I got these shorts a little while ago and they are great. They have a snug fit around the waist with empire's logo across the top. There is padding along the thighs, and around the back a little bit. And of course, most importantly, padding around the crotch. Since they are made by empire you know you're getting a quality product.
They work good, they have lots of padding, and are fairly inexpensive. I recommend these shorts to anyone.

does wick away sweat to a degree ;)
Thin padding on thighs
Man pad (better use a cup)
Um,I must be bored to write a review about shorts. Anyways...
Well,these slider shorts are ok. I'll start with the pros
Look good (but I don't see how that matters since you would wear them under pants)
Comfortable (as long as you get the right size)
Does seem to wick away sweat to a point
Has padding on thighs
Washable and hasn't fallen apart in dryer (a concern when I got these. I dry them on delicate,if you really want to know)
Man pad as they call it would only be usefully if you were neutered or simply don't
care if you get shot in the groin. (though,I suppose it's better than nothing) It's
only about an 1/8th of an inch thick of padding maybe less.
Padding on thighs a little on the thin side (I put this on the con side as well
some people may think these are heavily padded. Some may want thin some heavy)
Basically they are modified bike shorts to put it simply
7 out of 10

closest thing to these is commando with some support

removable "man pad" so you can slap someone with it
I love these things the fabric is so stretchy ,its just amazing the padding isnt much but it definatly is noticable. when you take em off you can feel they are soked but when they are on they feel nice. I got mad at herb one nice took the man pad out and slapped him with it which is nice.
