Freak w/ AA front
Hollow Point Bolt
45ci/4500psi tank w/ DYE Rhino cover
Lighter than C7
Expensive (but worth it)
If there is one thing DYE is really good at, its listening to what their customers want. The C7s where great pants, and the only problems I really had with them where little things, and they have all been changed this time around. The only thing I can possibly put down as a negative is the price tag (which is why I got them for Christmas so I can spend all my money on paint this year).
The C8s are noticabley a lot lighter. Where the C7s used some very sturdy, heavy material throughout, the 8s only use it on the padded areas, with the spaces in between being the same material as their jerseys are made of. Normally id be a little worried about having thin material in my pants, but I beat the crap out of all my DYE jerseys, and never manage to tear a single solitary hole in any of them.
They also got rid of that pain in the a## lining I cut out of my C7s last year. It was a good idea, but just not really all that necessary.
And they made sure their logo wont fall off this year. Not that I give a crap (because everything DYE makes is very characteristically theirs; no one needs a logo to now who made it) but its nice to see they take feedback well.
Great pants. I would have some concerns about the material if I didn't already have experience with their jerseys, but i'm sure it will be fine as long as I don't play in a razor blade factory.
