Experience:

Products Used:
none
Marker Setup: '95 level 7 Automag, '02 Autococker, both stock, both with Freak Kits and 68/3000 Crossfire stubbys
Strengths: Lightweight, comfortable, durable, adjustable, no pain felt when hit!
Weaknesses: None thus far
Review: I ref at a field. Naturally I get hit often enough to warrant protective clothing, so this was my choice. Please note that I only purchased the pants, and not the whole suit.

Most of the shots I have taken to these pants have bounced. I do feel myself get hit, but no longer have the stinging sensation that goes along with it, and no more welts or bruises. I have even taken shots in the privates, and no pain. I no longer wear a cup either, which got hot and uncomfortable.

These pants are durable enough that I wear them as is. So far the stitching has held up through 6 months of the washing machine 3 times every week. Thus far the stitching has exceeded my expectations, as the durability and construction was my most skeptical area of consideration before I bought them.

Being summer right now I can say these pants are lightweight enough to wear in 90 degree heat and during humid days. I bought the black pair too. They are large enough to put sweats under them in the winter if you need. The waistband, knees and shins have adjustable straps to fit to your body snugly or loosely depending on your preference for fit.

EDIT EDIT EDIT 04/25/07
(IT HAS NOW BEEN 3 YEARS SINCE I BOUGHT THESE PANTS AND THEY STILL WORK GREAT. KEEP IN MIND i USE THEM TO REF, NOT PLAY, SO IF YOU PLAY YOU WILL BE PUTTING A HARDER DEMAND ON YOUR CLOTHES THAN I DO AS A REF. THE STICHING STILL IS INTACT AND THEY STILL HOLD UP IN THE WASHING MACHINE TOO. I REF 3 TIMES A WEEK TO GIVE YOU AN IDEA OF HOW OFTEN I WEAR THESE.) END OF EDIT EDIT EDIT

Conclusion: These pants work for my demands as a ref. The pain of the sting of the ball is gone, as are the welts and bruises. They are durable and comfortable over an 8 hour hot summer day. Get this product, they work well.

as rooster1 said the second paragraph of the review. it does bounce balls. i made a bunker move on a guy and he popped out and nailed me atleast 15 times in the chest and not one broke. so.... yeah

I think the bounces/breaks heavily depend on how tightly the pants especially are adjusted. if left loose, they will definately bounce. But, if tightened down to a point where the suit hugs your body, you get the protection, but also the breaks.

My $.02
