I have to disagree, I have used several brands of briefs and I believe the Metal Pro's are by far the most comfortable and manageable briefs out right now. They do kick in tremendously w/ a suit over them but worn alone they will be just fine for what you want.
They do loosen up over time so get them tight. The thickness also keeps my hips warm as well as protected during my squat sessions. I recommend Metal briefs. Suits on the other hand can be anything you like.
