These pants are really great! They have so much padding on the knees that I felt comfortable kneeling on my driveway.They have two flex squeegee pockets on the sides which is a lot better than with my old regular pants. They have a lot of cargo pockets which are great for my pull squeegee and barrel cover. These pants also have zip open vents on the back to avoid hard surfaces that would otherwise be exposed. The stitching is also very high quality. They have bungi cords at the ankles that tighten and bunch up the pants so that i didnt have to have Mom hem them. My favorite thing about these pants other than knee padding, was the price. I got mine for $60, which was less than the Empire pants I was gonna get by $10.
These pants are warmer than Empire pants, but it really doesn't matter and also I live in New England, so its no big deal. Even for someone who lives in Florida it wouldn't be too bad. The main thing that people talk about when they say these pants aren't as good as they are is that they are heavy. Lets just say that if these pants are hard to lift, GET IN SHAPE!!!! Another thing is that the adjustable waist doesn't tighten much at all.
EDIT: O ya they don't have any crotch padding...
I give these pants an 8.5, rounded to 9. These pants are awesome
I would recomend these pants to everybody who wants paintball pants. They have the best value and I think that they are better than Empire pants.
9 out of 10
