In my personal opinon a hard cup is MUST the pants provide some protection but not enough if you want kids later if you know what i mean.

soft if anything, most people dont use them at all, i am one, before i had paintball specific pants and slider pants with a pad just for this in them i hung a hand towel out of my belt, cheap and easy way to provide protection and it does not get in the way while running
