Review: I bought the field armor pants (only the pants, not the jumpsuit) online for 79.00 and was charged another 23.76 ,without explanation, for shipping...clear ship gouging for something that weighs less than three pounds.

When I pulled them out of the box it was clear that I had made a big mistake. I will let you read what I wrote to their returns department...it explains everything.

To whom it may concern;

I have received the stalker armored pant #16143 and I am very disappointed. My dimensions are 5’11” 170 lbs with a 32 inch waist. I don’t understand why ordering a “medium” size results in pants that that could accommodate a sumo wrestler. Is there an assumption that your target demographic binges on super-size McDonald’s entrees prior to paintball games?

I do understand that you cannot accommodate each individual, that to some degree you need to range the sizes, but come on; the size of these pants is truly absurd. I am 5’11” 170 lbs with a 32 inch waist. Any doctor you consult would tell you this is an average height and weight for an active American male between the ages of 18 and 35. Isn’t this your target market?

Sure I can cinch the drawstring in six inches to reign in the massive girth of the waistband, but doing so results in a massive and uncomfortable bulge in the crotch and rear sections of the pants. Furthermore, the pants are ill-fitting on my 5’ 4” 165 lb fiancé as well as my 6’0” 195 lb next-door neighbor; both of whom are avid paintball players. Neither one of them are impressed with the enormous specifications of the waistband.

Also, because you have used flat, relatively rigid foam placed directly front and back, with no curvature, you get the effect of wearing a sandwich board. The pant legs stick out four inches from each side of each leg and rub together making a hideous whooshing sound when walking…not exactly the best way to avoid detection during a woodsball game.

I would like to request an RMA so that I may return these pants immediately.

Thank You,
James Collins

Conclusion: DON'T BUY THESE PANTS UNLESS YOU WEIGH THREE HUNDRED POUNDS!!!

The photos on their website are extremely misleading, so don't believe what you see.
Email me if you want to see pictures of me wearing them or if you feel an irrisistable urge to buy these pants and need someone to talk you down from your delusional state.

Dude,

You should read before you buy. Why would you buy Field Armor pants when it clearly states on their website that they are made for players over 225 lbs. I weigh 250 lbs and they fit me perfectly. Their jumpsuits would probably fit you better.
