I use this exact setup and swear by it, plus you don't look like a lycra tool. They'll protect your legs better than DH pants will, and you won't overheat as easily or harvest mushrooms out of your grundle. EMS makes some good enduro type baggy mtb shorts that come with padded undershorts and they're priced pretty well to boot.
Thanks I got the padded undershorts already just looking to keep the scratches and gouges down. I've found some vented bmx pannts that Im going to give a try
On the plains of hesitation lie the blackened bones of countless millions who at the dawn of victory lay down to rest, and in resting died.
Go forth and be a force of the awesome!
