Punctures, worst thing known to man...
I battered down the Corrieyairick pass with 4 day's worth of camping gear on my back with ghetto tubeless tyres, punting rocks left right and centre with the back wheel and didn't puncture. I've misjudged drainage ditches and slammed the back wheel into the lip on the other side so hard it loosened spokes, but didn't puncture. Don't dismiss tubeless.
I don't think Schwalbe tyres would prevent pinches, the extra material is underneath the tread, not in the sidewalls. They're also ridiculously heavy. DH tyres would help, as would DH tubes, as would higher pressures.
I can't see how puncture tapes would solve the problem either. Maybe try fatter tyres?
