girdle/shell vs. traditional pants

I came from roller and doing the transition to ice (been a year) so I have been wearing a relatively thin girdle with integrated cup along with an old CCM Supra pant. It's mainly because it's my only cup. I'm wondering if I switch to a full ice girdle/shell will it give me better mobility? Seems a little bulky the way I'm setup right now... bulky is fine, but does it slow you down / make you less agile?

I definitely felt more agile in roller but not sure if it's just because we didn't wear shoulder pads nor big pants.

Is the girdle/shell the next generation in gear, or simply just another option for players? The other question is are the CCM Supras surpassed by newer pants by a lot?
