Review: These trousers are pretty good for the woodsball player. They have both ACU and S.O. design for these.

First of all i will go over their strengths. Lightweight: self explanitory. Pretty much, they dont feel to heavy or bulky. Ripstop Material: its nice to know that your pants are durable and won't rip when it gets snagged on a bush. Squegee pockets: they are on both legs near the leg, though I sometime have to continuously check mine to make
sure that they did not fall off.

Next, the weaknesses. Too few belt loops: they only come with three belt loops, one in the back, and two on the front, each above the leg. I think this is too little. maybe at least five? Nylon belt subpar quality: when i first went to wear these and then tightened the belt... it pretty much unravelled on me. It ended up that that pair of trousers was from a bad batch, just send it back to the repairs area, and they will replace them for you. Back Pockets: they are pretty much pockets. Open pockets. it would be better if they were like the military back pockets, securable with buttons, so you dont drop your wallet (if you carry your wallet with you when you play). Seems to Thin: Yup... seems somewhat thin. Knees are double layered. I guess that the thinness could be good and bad. Good in that you cool down faster, Bad that it might sting a bit more if you get hit.

EDIT: 4/21 - i reccommend that when you wash these, you wash them inside out to prevent fading
Conclusion: Overall, i give these trousers the overall rating of: SATISFACTORY. I really didn't see anything special. Just paintball trousers that match with the Marauder 2 Top. But thats my opinion. Those of you who want to purchase this might see something different.
