Excellent pants, lots of extras, great company and customer service, and super durable
Not the lightest pants around. Not waterproof.
Out of all the pants I have ever tested these are one of my all time favorites (third on my list of best pants). The styling on them isnt flash and all business. I tested these out on several different tests.
First test: One mile run. Running in these pants was very nice. They were a bit on the heavy side but not overly so. After running for a half mile I began to notice how nicely ventilated the pants are. Not allot of heat/moisture build-up in any areas. They were very comfortable and did not sag or bounce while running.
Second Test: The slides. Sliding in these pants is a pleasure! They do not rise or fall during the slide and the slide pads are thick and well made. I did nearly forty slides total (three times the normal amounts) just because they felt so comfortable during slides/impacts.
Third test: Running around the sprinkler. These pant resist water but are not water-proof. I became rather wet after not much time.
Forth test: A day of play. These pants were absolutely excellent during play! I caught many bounces and they preformed excellent during slides/dives and all other play conditions. The extras (mask strap, squeege holder...ect.) worked absolutely perfectly.
Final test: A night out. I took the black on black pant out for a night on the town. They defiantly are not the most stylish pants around but they are more go than show. I received many odd looks during the night (some good though). They with stood a horrendous wipe out that occurred when I fell off a skateboard going downhill...the resulting damages: I was scraped and bruised but the pants were in flawless condition.
A excellent product from Mondo and Rosey (animal paintball). I own three different pairs of the BPS pants and nearly all of the problems (weight) have been fixed in the new pant released from AP. Overall these are one of the best pants out there and are highly recommended. The customer service is excellent and mondo/rosey are two of the nicest people around! However I could not give it a perfect ten/ten due to the fact that they are not totally waterproof. This resulted in some trouble during the wet conditions of the muddy (mardi) gras tournaments.
9 out of 10
